My attempt at a glossary of Instagram acronyms.
Quizmaster Soss

Many of us have found ourselves confused by the hot new acronyms of the du jour on Instagram. You probably felt like you were losing your street cred because you didn't already know what #tbt meant the first time you saw it. Well, first of all, you're right. You're probably a loser now and can't ever get back coolkid status. But secondly, I'm here to help. I'm going to define all the latest hashonyms/acrotags for you right now. #smh = "so much horticulture"Commonly used to express disappointment, as in "I can't believe this thing happened because of all the things wrong with it, like how all these plants are growing but ain't nobody growing them. how the

The Night I Was Out Of The Loop
Quizmaster Soss

With Game of Thrones starting up again last weekend, I have a confession to make. I don't watch it. I want to use this blog as my sincere apology to how this probably somehow demeans you as a media-consuming millennial or whatever. I know that its return is literally the highlight of your year. I know it's how you connect with every person in your life you consider worth any of your time. I know watching it is the closest thing a human being can come to being immortal. And I know that, like, omg it's sooooooo good. It's not that I'm against stuff that's popular... for example, I like hamburgers and having my windows down and Paul Rudd's boyish charm. I just can't see the GoT appeal

The Night We All Die In The Worst Possible Way
Quizmaster Soss

There's only one thing left in the world that still never fails to amaze me. This, of course, is the fact that I have probably seen more boobies than all of my ancestors combined. God bless the internet. That being said, tonight's performance by The Bukakkalypse, was also a modern wonder. Their team name alone is an inspiration. As they exlained it to me, it's apparently "a bukakke apocalypse." Once it was slowly and simply explained like that, it all made sense. At first I thought it was some kind of duplicating mutant deviant villain, but then I realized it's basically a prophetic

The Night I Learned Something About Life's Treasures
Quizmaster Soss

A Letter To Everyone I've Ever Known   There's a growing trend amongst my peers and their friends, and the people older and younger than those friends, and the people they live with as well as don't live with - and that trend is, apparently, to pretend like my ultimate life's goal of hunting treasure is not a worthwhile pursuit.  What I'm saying is that everybody says I'm irresponsible when I tell them I want to quit my entire life, and leave everybody I know, with the singular goal of finding unfathomable riches.  So, you're all a bunch of dicks and I'm not giving you any diamonds when I find a cave full of them that are all bigger than your dream-crushing

The Night I Start A Selfie Revolution
Quizmaster Soss

Right now in 2016 we're stuck in a world where political conversations come up constantly, whether it's in person or on your annoying Facebook feed. And I just want to throw out that none of the candidates are talking about the biggest crisis facing our generation (and likely the next several generations): there aren't enough iPhone apps for looking at shamefully boring selfies of people. Yes, there are a handful of these apps and most of you probably already have them all... but we can do better and I want a president that acknowledges that we're only scratching the surface of how many self-indulgent completely pointless photos we could be looking at on our phones. I'm happy (SO happy)

The Night I Asked A Question About A Celebrity
Quizmaster Soss

Welcome to Volume 4 of How To Be The Best, by me QM Soss. This week we'll be talking about another important member of your team… the pop-culture master.There may have been a time in your life when you are up on it all. You knew when Courtney Cox was pregnant. You knew when Ryan Reynolds was going through divorce. And you even knew how true various claims about the royal family were and were not. But then something happened. Mainly, you got a life. Luckily, we all have a friend or two that doesn't.You know that girl you work with who spends too much time on Buzzfeed? Or your deadbeat brother-in-law who gets in flame wars on Reddit? Yep… those

The Night I Virtually Couldn't Even Vote
Quizmaster Soss

It used to be that "virtual reality" was a novelty thing at the mall that you had to go pay ten bucks for five minutes and they'd strap you into some stanky vr gear and then you'd be immersed in a world with only eight colors and it was just a platform floating in space where you walked around and could bump into your friend who also paid ten bucks. It wasn't much of an experience at all, to say the least. Now, VR is putting you alongside Star Wars characters and letting you race dinosaurs and blah blah blah we get it you can do amazing things. Well... I've always thought it'd be funnier if you strapped all the gear on to experience the less finer things in life you just don't get to do enough

The Night Of Free Advice
Quizmaster Soss

Probably the key aspect for winning a GeeksWhoDrink quiz is how much you put into assembling your team. It needs to cover multiple generations and multiple classifications of knowledge. But I want to talk about one of the little things that helps your team to victory during the quiz. Being a blabbermouth! You want people on your team that will think out loud because, in their useless rambling, you might find that it inspires the correct answer out of one of the other teammates.This has been another edition of "How To Be The Best" by Quizmaster Soss. Free of charge, as usual.Tonight's winners were Shine On You Crazy Dangle and Drinking Dinner.

The Night I Got Milk
Quizmaster Soss

Tonight we learned that most state beverages, officially, are milk. It should be a damn constitutional law that no two states can share the same anything. No two states should be allowed to have the same State Bird, or the same State Motto, or the same State Cooking Pot (yes this is a real thing and yes, of course, only Utah has one). And it's not like there's a shortage of beverages to choose from. Hell, even Nebraska got creative and picked Kool-Aid as their official drink. I would even be okay with differentiating the kinds of milk. Somewhere like North Dakota can have cow's milk, because they're North Dakota and they deserve our pity. And Vermont can have goat's milk, Et cetera

The Night I Gave Everything Away
Quizmaster Soss

Maybe it was just where I was sitting, but there seemed to be a lot of anger in the room tonight. I chose to take it as passion, and sexual tension, and imbalaced hormones. But maybe that was just me ...or at least just between me and the guy in the front row. I definitely was feeling something though.Tonight was extra exciting because I got to give away a couple pairs of Real Salt Lake tickets! A Bar Named Sue gave me the green light to just start giving away cool shit, so I'm gonna! A couple teams won tonight and I'll be giving away another pair week so make sure to get your smartest friends on your team for the goodies.He Queefing Missile

The Night No Means Noh
Quizmaster Soss

One of the fun side effects of coming to the quiz at A Bar Named Sue is that you end up learning a lot of bizarre and sometimes useful bits of information. For example, this week we learned that you can rearrange the letters in the word senator to spell treason. Or that noh was a form of Japanese dramatic theater or something. You may think you'll never need to know that, but don't be surprised when you have grandchildren sue you (because in 50 years that's what families will do to each other) and somehow you'll be able to make an amazing metaphor in court about ancient Japanese art. That'll teach those little grandassholes not to have orgies in grandpa's convertible. I have

The Night Of The Butts
Quizmaster Soss

We’re gonna break down the math of tonight’s quiz because I’m feeling at one with arithmetic and pi right now.  So here’s a bullet point list of interesting number facts about scores tonight: Visual Round (wherein you had to name a villain falling off something) was the best-performing overall round (80% average correctness).  The lowest performing round was the Random Knowledge round, but we’ll ignore that since that topic means nothing to you.  Second lowest was Round Six – our round on war and makeup (63%). On 13 different occasions, a team aced a round.  That’s a pretty high number, so well

The Night I Kinda Got A Lapdance From A Dude Twice My Size
Quizmaster Soss

Well this was the most intimate evening I've had in a while. Thanks, you guys were really good. I would like to do it again sometime. This stupid warm February weather must've convinced all the less-dedicated to go jump in a lake or something, because tonight was all about the All-Stars. It's like when Survivor does a season of all the best players and makes them fight for my entertainment. That's like exactly what tonight was actually. Some of you are scrappy fighters and some of you who should be the fighters were just too busy twerking up in my business to fight and maybe that's why you didn't get first place... coughcoughstrugglebuscoughcoughalexcough.

The Night I Will Eventually Get A Haircut
Quizmaster Soss

I'm gonna go ahead and address the elephant in the room right off the bat. There were a lot of teams tonight who scored three or fewer points on multiple rounds tonight. So while some of you may have had some trouble, there is one thing that's clear… I need a haircut. And not just a trim. It's like out of control. A rain forest on top of my head. I think, as a special prize next week, the winning team gets to give me a haircut live on stage.Another thing worth pointing out is that round eight was clearly the easy round of the evening. Here's a fun fact: every team that joker'd before Round Eight would have been better off saving it for the final round. And that includes

Three way tie
Nikki!

Greeting quizzers! We had a great time tonight but sure missed Jared. There was an incredibly close three-way tie between Turbo Skanks, The Struggle Bus and Kanye/Kanye 2020 at the end of Round 7 but round 8 separated  the men from the boys putting Turbo Skanks. Shout out to We are Fucktastic and I Only Care about Ghost Things Now for being my favorite teams names of the night. You are all amazing. Thank you for letting me be your quizmaster this week and hopefully I will see you all soon.

The Night I Saw B( .)( .)bs
Quizmaster Soss

You wouldn't know by the way I can't ever differentiate between the words dessert and desert, but I actually have a college degree in journalism! Pretty amazing that I was able to pull that off without even being able to read, huh? Graduation was a proud moment for me - comparable to the first time I saw boobies. Yeah... me, I saw boobies. Despite regularly still putting my shirt on backwards end and peeing sitting down, I managed to get a girl naked once! It was harder than graduating from college, but really it's all the same concept. Both felt like I was pulling a fast one on the universe. Anyway, none of that has anything to do with tonight's quiz. Yet again, these underdog teams
