Well I don’t really have one specific issue to sound off on this week that I can loosely tie back to last night’s quiz material. So for this blog I’ll play a game called Look at My Google News Feed and Write a Sentence about the Top Six Articles and Try my Darndest to Relate them back to Quiz.

Article 1: Obama and Getting Rid of ISIS. If this were some big game of Civilization, ISIS has been playing for the militaristic victory while the U.S. has been playing for the “let’s just have the most civilization points when the world ends” victory. But Obama has shifted that strategy so that he can bomb a few opponents for a couple turns. Unfortunately I don’t think this will end with ISIS approaching the U.S. with 372 gold, 11 horses, 6 iron, 3 coal, 2 pearls, 1 sugar, and open borders for a 10-turn peace treaty. Unless they throw in their 4 oil resources.

Article 2: India reaches Mars orbit. Once again with the Civ reference, India has joined the space race. First nation to Alpha Centauri wins!

Article 3: Some radical cleric was acquitted. Also mentioned in the headline is that he was (is?) a terrorist and is now free? How’s that work?

Article 4: Blackberry has a new device. I think I’ve seen one person use a Blackberry in the past five years. Six years ago Blackberry’s stock peaked at about $140. Today it’s $10 and change. Why are these devices still around?

Article 5: Controversy over Obama saluting a Marine guard while holding a coffee cup. Why is this an issue? Instead let’s talk about Nobel Peace Prize concerts. What the hell is a Nobel Peace Prize concert, and how are these hosted by anybody other than Bono? What happens at these concerts? Are they just group singings of kumbaya and Raffi songs? Is there a contest to determine the best cover of Imagine?

Article 6: Takeaways from the Bruins Preseason Opener. In their chase for the Stanley Cup these past few seasons, the Bruins have left themselves in a position in 2014-15 where they only have enough room in the salary cap to buy glove warmers and a bag of hockey pucks. They lost their top scorer through free agency and have yet to resign two of their young stars. It doesn’t look good for the home team and I probably won’t start paying attention to them until mid-February, if at all.

So I’m 0 for 6 in tying my Google News feed back to last night’s quiz content. But I will say that I had 10 teams join us for what was a very fun quiz. After choking on the final round the past two weeks, Wyld Stallyns finally came through to win this one. (Seriously, they were in first place after round seven the last two weeks before they butchered the random knowledge round to go home with nothing.) Second place was a tie between Put It Away and The C U Next Tuesdays. After having done tiebreakers like digits of pi, poetry contests, guess how many $1 bills are in my wallet, and an occasional dance off, I decided to settle this one with a chugging contest. Winning the tiebreaker was Put It Away who really put that PBR away, no pun intended.

Thanks to all for coming to the quiz. You guys make my Tuesdays awesome and I hope I’m doing the same for you. Come back next week!

This past weekend I participated in the Reach The Beach relay race. It’s a 200-mile race that is run with a 12-person team, so everyone runs about 17 miles spread out across three legs. In order to accommodate 12 people, we get two large vans and when the runners in one van are doing their legs, the runners in the other van are waiting for their turn. Then at the van exchange the second van takes over while the first van parks and waits. At this race the other van decided to call themselves Slagathor while my van decided to adopt the theme song All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor.

Unfortunately, we couldn’t exactly play the song as nobody brought an mp3 hookup to the van, and even if we had one, we didn’t have much cell service anyways. So the entire time we tried to brainstorm different lyrics to the song until we could string together what we thought was basically the entire thing. Eventually someone recalled the line “I ain’t no stick figure barbie doll. So if that’s what you’re into then go ahead and move along.” At which point two of the guys in my van said, “Moving on.” Ouch guys. Really?

But this all brings to mind my Theory of Attraction and Compatibility. It’s a pretty well thought out theory so let me indulge you. First, let your hand hang limp at the wrist. Don’t make a fist, don’t straighten your fingers, just let it hang naturally. Notice the curvature of your fingers. Now go up to your partner (or someone willing to participate in this experiment—though not at your day job) and place your hand upon his or her ass. Do not try to bend your fingers, do not straighten them out, just place the limp hand on the other person’s butt. If your hand perfectly cups your partner’s behind—and your partner’s hand perfectly cups yours—then it’s a match! But if one of you two can’t grab the other’s ass without bending or straightening your fingers, then it’s not meant to be.

Relationships should feel natural and comfortable, and this includes such simple physical contact as grabbing the other’s behind. If the hand doesn’t fit, it’s probably not going to last. And if nothing else, use this as a pick up line next time you’re at a bar. Just give me credit for coming up with it. If you took any of that seriously, then I laugh at you, unless of course this does turn out to have a strong correlation with a happy and harmonious relationship, in which case you can send the Nobel Prize to my house in Quincy.

Speaking of prizes, they may have lost the tiebreaker last week, but I Didn’t Know There Were Switch Hitters in the NFL won last night’s quiz by one point over NFL GTA. Both teams’ expert knowledge on random knowledge elevated them in the standings—I guess committing the cast of The Office to memory finally paid off. Congrats to them and to everyone else who played.

Thanks for joining us last night and come back next week for another Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz! (And don’t forget, Seinfeld on Thursday.)

Last night, we learned that the Postmaster General has the second-highest salary in the U.S. federal government. At $245k, his salary is more than such government employees like the Vice President, the Speaker of the House, and the Secretary of Defense. I wondered how that was possible so I read up on the position and learned that it was at one point a Cabinet post, usually given by the President as a sinecure. It was a very influential position within the President’s party, and one that didn’t seem to have many responsibilities. From what I can gather, the Postmaster General basically made sure the President’s men got what they wanted in return for their support. If you’ve seen even just five minutes of any Boardwalk Empire episode, you know what I am talking about. This job came with a ridiculous salary and even a spot in the Presidential succession. That’s no longer the case, but it’s still a sweet gig to watch over a dying industry.

What else happened yesterday? Well we learned that Harvard is still number two and that MIT topped Cal Tech. Again. Also, Apple announced their new products, and said that I could download U2’s newest album for free. Not that I care for U2 much, but I am disappointed that Apple said I could download it immediately (as in yesterday when they announced it), yet I didn’t see it pop up in my iTunes store until today. I am excited about the Apple Watch, however, and will eagerly wait for its release in about two and a half years.

As Apple gets into the wearable technology field, anyone want to guess what it builds next? I’m expecting to see the iEye, a device you can put on your eyeball that displays anything and everything you want or need onto your cornea. Although I suspect that some people would like to see an iBrator—a wearable device that can detect your sexual needs and deliver them in a pulsing sensation that is timed to your favorite U2 ballads. You can have an orgasm to songs like Desire, Elevation, Numb, Electrical Storm, Even Better Than the Real Thing, or Sunday Bloody Sunday (you know, if it's that time of the month).

Anyways, a quiz happened last night. The C U Next Tuesdays and Moby Dick Pics tied for first, so we went to a tiebreaker where Tuesdays came out on top 4-2. Thanks to everyone for playing the quiz. This was one of the more fun nights I’ve had hosting for you all and I hope that you felt the same way. I really enjoy making Tuesday night the best night of your week. Come back next time for another Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz.
