Things to do in Hershey when you don't eat candy
Doctor Nick: Thymelord

Who would have thought I could spend an entire day in Hershey Pennsyltucky when I don't eat much candy, and certainly don't consume any the product the namesake company makes with whatever abomination they call "cocoa beans?"  Spoiler alert: it tastes spoiled.  But I have to give it up to that company for building a hell of an amusement park. For a day, I got to be a teenager riding all the thrill rides imaginable. Also: stand in hour-long lines. But still. It was good.  Not as good as being here with you at my beloved Piper Down. We had the SLC dominators, The Guesstapo, in attendance. They managed to get the win. Just close

Nick is one of the rare people who was born in Las Vegas long before it became Disneyland for degenerates. His growing discomfort for heat, and ongoing feud with some Canadian boy named Celine Dion led him to the land of Zion. Upon discovering this wasn't the same land of Zion mentioned in The Matrix, he decided to make the best of the situation and began hosting pub quizzes. 

His hobbies include drinking, eating, teaching children to swear, cooking, and being one of the last people on earth who thinks CDs are the only way to buy music. His turnoffs are walks on the beach, because that combines sun, sand, and countless bacterias growing in the moist heat. 

By day he looks at an endless supply of MBA student assignments and weeps for the future. His most recent inappropriate comment to a student was, "I could take your business proposal to run an armoury for Live-Action-Role-Players seriously if it wasn't for the 793 grammatical errors which impeded my giggling."

He's not a licensed therapist, but he's happy to take a look inside your head and solve your problems. Better yet, come out to a quiz and drink your troubles away.

Gar is an idiot man-child who likes cats, video games and beer.

Despite the occasional run-on sentence, Gar is a dedicated Grammar Nazi. He's also a giant stickler for rules, mainly because his anxious disposition precludes from him convincingly pulling off any untoward behavior of his own.

A social recluse by day, the prospect of booze-fueled battles of wits compels him to leave the warm, comforting glow of his computer monitor each night for pub quiz.

Did we mention the cats?

The other Santa
Doctor Nick: Thymelord

It takes nights like tonight to remind us that so many people really do not know the state capitals of our fifty states. To be fair, many of our states are pretty insignificant places that should probably be forgotten. North AND South Dakota? Seems like overkill. Let’s just have one. Actually, just roll them both into Montana, absorb Wyoming and Idaho, and let’s call it National Parkland. Like we really need 50 states. The problem would be if we tried to combine states there would be a huge gerrymandering problem and we would somehow split part of California and New York in every new region despite thousands of miles separating each geographically.

Soliloquy of the moles
Doctor Nick: Thymelord

Have you ever played Whac-a-Mole? I’m not even sure it still exists. Granted, I’m not typically hanging around places where one would find a Whac-a-mole machine. I consider Chuck-E-Cheese to be one of the circles of hell that Dante told us about. Anyways, consider those little moles, jumping up randomly, taunting you. Your job is to keep knocking them down. One, after another, after another, after another… These moles just keep popping up. Now, in a game, this is particularly fun. The game lasts maybe a minute. But what if you are stuck in a game of Whac-a-Mole? You can’t escape, and they just keep coming. Faster, harder,

It's always peanut butter time
Doctor Nick: Thymelord

It was time to unpack our adjectives, walk like Walken, and talk about peanut butter being stuck to… You filthy perverts. The roof of your mouth. Where else would peanut butter be? I truly do not want an answer to that question. At all. The bar was booming, and we watched bloodshed in several rounds. But it was Crack Homicide Squad who had the music experts that carried the crew to the win. Just behind them, Death by Misadventure narrowly edged out the teams in a third-place tie:

Some Children Left Behind
Doctor Nick: Thymelord

Manboobs, Ninja Turtle rejects, and all our education comes from television. That is pretty much the take away from the quiz. All three of these point out something very wrong with our future. As someone who works in education, specifically my interaction with high school students, I can tell you that the next generation may have a chance if it wasn’t for our complete failures. All the debates are, “how much testing is too much?” or “can standardized tests be effective?” when the real question is “are we allowing children to believe Kevin James is funny?” There are plenty of resources

Laughs and good deeds
Doctor Nick: Thymelord

We had an incredible night in support of Open Legal Services, Utah’s first and only nonprofit law firm for clients with moderate income. It is an innovative concept, and something you will likely need at some point. As always, our Piper Down crowd showed that they are the classiest group on earth, raising money for them, and having a killer night. The bar was packed and the competition was heavy. Our teams donating to Open Legal Services qualified for a cash pot. This meant that our winner, Cornhusker vs Cornholers picked up a huge $100 cash prize. Just behind them,

I wouldn't trust either of those men to pack my home
Doctor Nick: Thymelord

So there was some sort of punchy-sport event this weekend that got everyone worked up. Either people were upset that two ultra-rich psychopaths were getting richer, people were pretending to care about the match to look cool to others, or they were 12-year old boys. Seriously, who else takes this “sport” seriously? It’s a circus sideshow, right? A game for hormonal boys and for rich people to bet on a fixed outcome. Don’t think it’s fixed? I have an investment opportunity for you, just message your bank account info to me and I’ll do all the hard work. But hey, we just love letting the
