I don’t understand why 20- and 30-somethings, who are unmarried and don’t own a house, pay someone to do their taxes for them. All you are doing is copying one number from one piece of paper to another. How much did you make in wages? See box 2 of your W-2. Box 2 says $XX,XXX.XX. Write that in box 7 of the 1040. Do you have kids? No? Are you in charge of any other human beings? No? Then put a 1 in box 6d. Are you paying off student loans? Then put your student loan interest in box 33. No medical expenses? No charitable donations (you stingy bastard)? Take the standard deduction of $6,100. It’s that easy.

Last night’s quiz was a test in short term memory retention. I barely finished reading the answer to R2Q5 (Woody Guthrie), when I had a question in round four asking about the folkie who discovered that this land was his land. You should have all gotten that one right. And on the topic of embarrassing wrong answers, many of you said that Muhammad Ali fought Evander Holyfield in the 1971 “Fight of the Century.” For real guys, Holyfield was only 9 years old when that happened.

As for the outcome of the quiz, The C U Next Tuesdays returned to the winners’ circle with their 74-point performance. After them were Approximately 64,695 Pounds of Shark Fins with 70 points. Honorable mentions go to US Air Brazilian Landing Strip who hoped that the email bonus prize from my box would be a toy plane, E-bola blah blah blah whose 13 jokered points on the final round was not enough to overcome their measly 8 points on round two, and Lanthanides and Actinides who rocked the second round, but stumbled on rounds four through six, getting just 4 points in each one.

Next Tuesday we are doing a Quiz for a Cause! Supporting the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Foundation, all teams have the option of paying $5 per player to support HOBY. Then, the winning team will get $5 back for each team that donated. So if 10 teams participate, the winning team gets $50. Click the like button over to the left, enjoy the marathon, stay safe, and I’ll see you next time.

Miss me again? Last week I took a trip to Houston, TX, where I enjoyed their beers, food, baseball, museums, and much more. One of my activities out in Houston was a campout weekend with 350 of the craziest, awesomest people I’ve ever met. I could not walk past anyone at this campout without having that person introduce him/herself to me and ask me a few questions about myself. Strangers talking to strangers? Such a foreign concept to this native Bostonian. Anyways, it didn’t take long for absolute strangers to come up to me and say, “So you’re the one with three testicles, right?” Fack, news traveled fast down there.

But a lesson based on a thing I learned. When walking through a Texas campsite, make sure you’re wearing something on your feet, preferably sneakers. I was talking to someone when all of a sudden I felt several pin pricks on my right foot. I looked down and immediately realized I was standing on a fire ant hill. Dang it those little pieces of shit hurt. I didn’t want to swat them away with my hand because they’d just get on my hand, so I grabbed my left flip flop and started whacking away at them while hopping around so as to not put my now bare left foot on the ground. Unfortunately, the little buggars don’t flick off so easily. Just like when you’ve got a booger on your finger tip and every time you flick at it, it just transfers to another finger, these ants just kept going from my right foot to my left flip flop and back to my right foot with every swatting motion. I finally recovered with only about 6-8 bites, but not before providing some entertainment for the locals who knew to wear to close-toed sneakers.

So back to last night. We had a quiz, and winning it was James Franco’s Prom After Party, who did not prematurely ejokerate—like some teams did—to finish with 70 points. Second went to I Thought Mickey Rooney was Already Dead.

I was very disappointed that more of you didn’t get the Good Will Hunting question in round seven. They filmed the “Do you like apples” scene three fucking doors down from the Hong Kong! That should be mandatory film viewing material for everyone who sets foot in the People’s Republic of Cambridge. I was also dismayed by your answers to the next question in that round, The Boondock Saints. Again, something that you all should take the time to watch. Think Dexter, but with Daryl Dixon pairing up with another Irish dude, an unkempt mafia wannabe, and Billy Connolly to shoot up bad guys. Oh, and Willem Dafoe absolutely steals the show with his performance.

That’s it for now. Like this blog. Save the date for our Star Wars quiz. And say hi to me sometime (you won’t have to spend $15 to send me a Facebook message).

Tyler (Quizmaster Dr. Tyler D. Crosby, Esq.)

I'm trying to become the man so that I can help the people. In the meantime, let me read you a quiz or three! Definitely not still bitter about my Jeopardy! experience.

All these teams of savvy quizzers performed well in stride tonight when their normal quizzing habitat was disrupted in a number of ways. A substitute quizmaster, a reversed April Fools’ quiz, three 16-point rounds… not even NUMBERWANG could faze these eight teams. It was good to be back at the Hong Kong again—you’re a delightful group of folks that make it real easy on a substitute quizmaster. 

RIP Bill Cosby took home the top prize tonight with a very strong showing of 90 points—they scored 12, 14J, and 15 on the three big rounds, and no lower than 6 on any other round. Regulars The C U Next Tuesdays (I just got the joke, guys) came in second but had a huge mega-team that pulled them out of prize contention, so the second place prize went to What’s With All The Humans?, whose team name makes me a little wary.

The best scores came in Round 6 (All The News that Shits) where 5 teams had perfect scores and the room as a whole averaged 89% of the available points (7.13). A close second was Round 7 (Expect the Unexpected), with two perfect 16s and a 14.13-point average—that’s 88% of possible points. I can’t remember the last time that Round 1 was the worst round at a quiz, but I suppose it makes sense when you start with Random Knowledge and the hardest questions. RIP Bill Cosby brought home a 12 there, but the room averaged only 61% of possible points (9.75).

Once again, thanks for not taking the erasers or calling everyone by different names or whatever the kids are doing these days to substitute teachers. Your fearless leader Ryan will be back next week. Come see me again at Centre Street Sanctuary in Jamaica Plain on Wednesday nights.
