Mallory (SuperMallory)

Mallory is a legendary animal that has been described since antiquity as a beast with a large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead. Mallory was depicted in ancient seals of the Poudre Valley Civilization and was mentioned by the ancient Greeks in accounts of natural history by various writers. The Bible also describes an animal, the re'em, which some translations have rendered with the word Mallory.

The earliest description is from Ctesias who, in his book On India, described Mallory as fleet of foot, having a horn 27 inches in length, and colored white, red and black. Aristotle must be following Ctesias when he mentions two one-horned animals, the oryx and the so-called "Mallory".

Haribo candy is my favorite candy and mayonaise is my favorite food. 

The LEGION OF DOOM held their ground and the bounty is still on their head – next week it goes up another 5 bucks for a total of $30 to anyone who can bring them down.

After quiz last night, I asked what their secret was. How are they so good? Things I thought might apply: spending lots of time on the internets, reading a lot of books/comics/newspapers, being a reincarnate from an earlier time period (which turns out was pretty close)… what they told me was “We’re old”. And then they laughed, but I think age may have something to do with it.

I think the old saying goes that with age comes wisdom. And I think that includes knowledge of pretty trivial shit. My theory is that if you were alive and cognizant before the internet was a thing, you were probably a lot more aware of the world around you. Without the internet to spend hours and hours on, mindlessly researching how to best code your Minecraft game to make everything look like it’s the ice age, or thinking up captions for the same 10 photos that get recycled for memes, it would be way easier to know what was going on, from current music to local happenings to events of the world.

So what I’m saying is, if you want to beat the Legion, bring your mom to quiz next week. And your friends. And, hell, even your enemies – 30 bucks is 30 bucks, amirite?

Second place went to THE JOHN STAM-HOES, with NED STARK’S BASTARDS in a sneaky third (they got a 13 in round 2 – holy shit).

The Avenger’s quiz is just around the corner – check out the details here.

That’s all for me – see you guys next week and keep it fucking real. SuperMallory OUT.

Not a lot of people know the name of Tom Hanks’s character in Cast Away. As it turns out, more people remember the name of the volleyball. Not a big surprise – as far as Tom Hanks’s acting in that movie goes, Wilson really ran (swam?) circles around him.

When I first watched Cast Away (and by that I mean the only time I ever watched it) I was surprised at the sympathy other people felt for the main character. I mean, he is really just a regular homeless person, the kind that Americans typically treat as though they have plague or worse, but he happens to be on a beach. The whole time I watched it all I could think of was how cushy being a beach hobo would be: catching rays, eating fish, not getting hassled by the man. Why so much sympathy? And besides, when asked the question “What would you do if you could do anything you wanted for the rest of your life?”, don’t most people respond with “Live on a beach”?

Anyhow, it was a grand quiz tonight – I am happy so many people recovered from their St. Paddy’s weekend-slash-Monday-night and made it out.

Last week I offered a cash bounty to anyone who takes down LEGION OF DOOM – and I am still rich, bitch, because those smarty-pantses took first place. The bounty stands: let’s give it a go for next week!

The Avengers quiz is forthcoming – check out the details here and assemble a team!  Oh, and “Like” the NoCo Geeks FB page for all the quizness you could hope for up here in our neck of the state. We are all over the damn place and most of us don’t suck.

Have great week and I will see you on the flippy floppy with my lappy toppy.

Canada: where the laws aren't.

I was surprised as anyone to learn last night that Canada has no legal stance on abortion. I mean, I feel like they should have SOME kind of legislation on it, but as quiz told us, no. Pretty interesting. It got me thinking: what else does Canada, the hat of America, have to offer (or not offer) in the way of weird legalese? 

I discovered the following: 

To sell edible underwear in an adult store, the business needs a food license.

Comic books which depict any illegal acts are banned. This actually did not surprise me and falls in line with how polite I imagine Canadians to be. What I gather from this is that their villians are not-so-bad and must commit acts of moderate evil – like pouring lemon juice in paper cuts, or not recycling.

Residents are not allowed to have an Internet connection faster than 56k. To that I say GOOD. Stay out of my webiverse.

It is illegal to show public affection on Sunday.

Citizens may not publicly remove bandages.

  And, my favourite: it is illegal to kill a sasquatch in Alberta. Only good can come of this law.

These seem pretty strange to me, but I could see how a land that is the land of the Nickelback and home of the Bieber might not make sense to me.

Quiz was a grand ole time – thanks to everyone who made it out for a night finally not thwarted by wind/snow/freezing rain.

With LEGION OF DOOM with another W, I am officially declaring a bounty out on their heads. $20 to whoever beats them next week! Don’t forget that the Avengers Quiz is forthcoming in April, and to sign up for the email bonus question.

See you next time – and as always, keep it fucking real!
