Let's dispel this fiction...
Dr. Nick

What a great time, boys and girls! We had a great time despite the fact that Utah is literally trying to kill us with the fog that turns people inside out. But at least our legislature is considering pornography a public health crisis… Last time I checked, porn doesn’t cause one to cough one’s lungs out. Well… I mean there are circumstances… But, at least we have our quiz. And congratulations to our winners: Let’s dispel this fiction that this trivia team knows what it’s doing. Just behind them, Jeb’s Bush finished second ahead of a competitive crowd. And now, your GOP Valentines! (<-The

Take 'em Away
Dr. Nick

Back in the day there was a myth that despite all his evil and uselessness as a human, Hitler did something positive for the economy of Germany. It’s a myth, and it’s dumb, and you shouldn’t believe that nonsense. Hitler is a waste of space and should never have existed. Many would say the same for King Jong Un and Kim Jong Il. Let’s face it, they’re batshit crazy, oppressive, and are torturing a nation of innocent people. But they have some redeeming qualities when it comes to the rules of basketball. One of the countless reasons I cannot stand the NBA is free throws. They’re stupid. They shouldn’t exist. They make me want to throat-punch

You're the one that I want
Doctor Nick: Thymelord

People… A little decorum, please. I know we’re all excited about a Grease Live TV event, but to take it there… C’mon! A big win went to Jimmy’s Jubilant Gents tonight, with Ned Stark’s Bastards right behind them. Now have a read of the haikus all about Grease, and apologies for the single most offensive Grease fan theory of all time in the pictures. #neverforget.

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.

Never shall butcher and home decor meet
Doctor Nick: Thymelord

Well, well, Wednesday. We meet again! In your typical manner, you manage to be my most worthy adversary. Some could say we are… companions. See, like Batman and The Joker, one cannot exist without the other. (cue dramatic notes!) With the return of the brilliance of The X-Files, what else are we meant to expect but the internet not shutting the fuck up about things they should indeed shut the fuck up about. Fan reactions on social media were very excited and positive, but as soon as our nation’s blogosphere (that includes anyone writing for supposedly legitimate media outlets, because let’s face it, there are few legitimate outlets left) opened their stupidly-critical

Snooze-fest 2016!
Doctor Nick: Thymelord

Well, according to the shitty beer and garbage car industry, the “teams” selected for some television show were selected on this day. Apparently there are people who this matters to a great deal. Now, this is not a “huh huh sportsball, I’m not a jock” statement, because bitch, I will watch cricket and curling on TV. But seriously, is there anything more boring than an NFL game? No, there is not. And if you disagree, I understand… that you are wrong. “But I watch it for the commercials!” Jesus… Did you really say that? You are watching 7 hours of boring-as-fuck-television for the thing we invented DVR and Netflix to avoid? Okay,

The dude does not abide
Doctor Nick: Thymelord

Last week, we had a lot of loss to mourn. This week, we kept waking up to find out that Ted Nugent and every Republican presidential candidate continues to be alive. These are extremely troubling revelations to keep hearing every day. Also, Glen Frey died, and literally no one with any taste in music actually gave a shit. Truly, can we just lose all the people who are legitimately thinking of voting for any of those clowns? I hate to wish death on anyone, but maybe they could get debilitating diarrhea on election day? Could McDonalds and Chik-Fil-A help humanity and put extra botulism in their shitty food all November? Okay, enough being political, except for the fact that Ted Cruz

Something something being a friend
Doctor Nick: Thymelord

Sometimes, I say something and almost immediately regret it. Like a topic for our game, WHAT’S IN THE BOX? After saying out loud the first thing that pops into my mind, I think, “wow… That is really dark and offensive, and why do I say these things?” Suggesting you provide Betty White sex tape material was not one of those moments. No regrets, whatsoever. Although, maybe I should not have suggested that our own karaoke king Jaimal be involved in this… Nah, no regrets. Congratulations to Diddlers on the Roof for pulling off a win in their rookie appearance here at Piper Down. Many more wins to come, I’m sure. Just

Goodnight, Goblin King
Doctor Nick: Thymelord

This week is delivering some bad news. We lost a truly great musician and a truly great actor this week from a truly horrible disease. It’s hard to laugh when we face the reality that even these real-life superheroes are like us. Fragile, human, prone to death. Thankfully, laughter can be a great medicine, and it was good to spend the night with all of you, doing our best to pay tribute to David Bowie’s brilliance, while laughing at mankind’s lesser members.

I'm in Love with Piper

And I'm talking about being in love with both the bar Piper Down and Piper my companion in Fallout 4. She is a real delight and she makes me feel special. It's getting pretty serious. As serious as the quiz action was last night! My god! People were scoring points left and right but Mazeltov Cocktail whipped up some weaponized Manischewitz and won the night! Congrats! In second, OMG Bill Cosby Suicide. I can't think of any pun or joke about their name that wouldn't be controversial, so I'll just say, they drew almost all the right things in Picture Page and won second! Remember that show? Do you think he did anything untoward on the set? The

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.

I also made all you nerds draw me pictures of things you were excited for in 2016.

Which is no small potatoes, but not quite as sweet as the sugary beet of the top spot. To whom does this title go? Never Count on Jamal.

Hello Piper Down! It's good to be back a couple weeks after the Star Wars quiz. Not to brag but back in 2010 my team had a six week win streak. I'm sure you all remember that. No. Nobody remembers that. I'm sorry I even brought it up.    But not as sorry as I am about one of our teams, Donner Party of 8. They didn't make it through the quiz. By the end they were Donner Party of 1. I kept trying to tell them that Piper Down has a wonderful food menu but they just stared at me with sad, sunken eyes and burped up a shoelace.    Weber Dropouts, glad your handwriting improved as

Seriously, I love hosting on nights like that, where everyone and their mom comes out to play (literally) and long-lost friends show up in the middle of quiz. Bets were made, songs were sang, reunions were beautiful and a goddamn lot of Fireball was poured. (Is Fireball & Strongbow actually good together or was I that drunk by the end of karaoke?)    The rule about not having Star Wars spoiler team names holds at least until next weekend by the way.

And what better way to warm up on a Wednesday night than by imbibing delicious alcoholic beverages and having your blood pressure rise at the fact that I played you all a Nickleback song! Mwa-ha-ha. (I honestly didn't have a choice in the matter. Nick has blackmailed me all the way from the outback so that I am forced to push this travesty upon your virgin ears.)
