Things just get better and better every week at the Overtime. I really feel like this place is starting to come into its own. The support is there and has been there for some time, but we’re finally developing an identity. We have regulars, we have running gags, we have venue-specific events, we’ve got goofs on goofs, we got everything! We’ve built a flavor for our quiz, and it’s delicious.
For those not familiar with his work, Friedrich Nietzsche developed a theory of the Übermensch, or the “Beyond-Man.” The Übermensch was a goal humanity was to set for itself, a constant growth beyond boundaries to force humanity into a greater state of being and thus give it value as a living entity on this earth. Well, we had our first sighting of the Übermensch at the quiz last night. Our winning team for the night was BESM, which consisted of one little baby girl about the size of a nickel (give or take). This little thing, this tiny creature, not only won the quiz singlehandedly but she also won every single bonus round. Every single one. I’m not even kidding.
Second place was also one person. You know what I’m thinking? These two gotta get together, do the damn thang, and make a baby superchamp, and use that baby to win next year’s Geek Bowl in Austin.
So it has been spoken, so it shall be.
Thanks to everyone who came out last night for the quiz. I would say that I hope you had as much fun as I did, but I know you all did. Until next week, this is Holland the Boy Wonder saying, “Will you poop on me?”
