So, tonight we had a great turnout. I expect it may have been the rain but who knows. Maybe it's just my magnetic personality. Though judging by my performance last night that clearly can't be it. I was all over the place. Taking a physics and assembly language test then trying to do quiz was just too much for my brain.
13 teams is a new record for me, so thanks everyone for coming out, means a lot to me. This week 3+1=5 took the gold while rivals Brainiac 4 and WE ARE NOT BRAINIAC tied for second. Ironic isn't it? I settled the tie breaker with a few questions off the top of my head, the theme being fantasy literature. The not brainiac's took the win in that tie breaker. I think I'm going to give the prize of best name to Bingo the Wonder Pony though Hill's Cuties is a close second only because they took the time to explain their team name during a scoring break and thoroughly embaress a team member. Going into round 6 Bern Dawgs were in second by only 1 point then decided to leave, bummer dudes. I'm sure the brainiacs and not brainiacs didn't mind.
After one of our bonus questions (what is the square of i) I offered a beer to anyone who could show me a proof of why this is true using formal logic. Trick question as the definition of i is actually a postulate and doesn't have a definitive proof, however we had some other math nerds in the crowd who took a pretty good stab at it so I gave 'em a beer.
That's all from me for this week. Had surgery on my toe this morning so I'm all loopy on painkillers. I thought it might make the blog more interesting but after re-reading it, I just sounds really dull. Turns out this doesn't bother me much either. Time to go kill all the mans in Borderlands 2.
Don't forget your towel, and remember, don't panic.
