The Return!
RobertLove

I was out of town last week, but QM Master P took care of everything in my absence. Skiing wasn't great, but the trip was good. We will have to try to make it out there again to ski. Let's jump into the quiz for the night. Unfortunately, there wasn't a winner for round 8's round of beer, but our winners for all the other rounds were: I'm the President and You're Not; Danny DeVito; Tits McGee; and Obama Wiretapped Me and all I got was this Crappy Team Name. Hope you all like those free beers. After our competition we had a tie for second place to finish the night. After a quick question on the Oscars

Quiz Madness!
PatrickHyland

Quiz! Basketball! So many things happening at once! Big shoutout to all the teams that came out tonight with it being Spring Break and the first day of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament! We had a lot of new teams that were trying out GWD Pub Quiz for the first time! We hope you enjoyed it and come back again! Everyone went away happy, because all teams correctly answered a bonus question throughout the night, earning them a free round of beers! Hooray beer! But, just like March Madness, in the end, it can come down to only two teams! Tonight, Senator Shorty's Harem narrowly missed the top prize by one point, but

Little Dinosaurs
RobertLove

If you have ever wanted little pet dinosaurs, go get chickens. They act just like the little pack dinosaurs from the second Jurassic Park. Obviously their bite is a little less harmful, but don't think that means your fingers are safe. They will take a nip at you if they are given a chance. That should not be a reason to be scared off from owning a small flock. They provide great eggs and can help mitigate insect problems in your yard. Like any other pet, each one has its own personality as well. We have one that is more aggressive to us than any of the others. She is the head of the flock though, so helps keep everyone in line. If you are handy and think you can make a pen

Cows are Intersting
RobertLove

Would you wear a pin that says Cows are Interesting? I think I would. Cows are intersting. They have multiple stomachs. They turn grass and feed into tasty, tasty beef. I know that there are some issues with the ways that we practice husbandry right now, but if we make some changes, then I think that we could be more considerate of our food and its well-being. Anyways, enough of that. Time for the quiz. Our quiz looked like it was going to be very small, but then really filled out. We had great participation. I hope that you all had as much fun as I did. Those teams that got to take home some of that tasty free beer were: Beyond a Reasonable Stout; Boko

Busy Days
RobertLove

Spent the day on Wednesday brewing. Made a barleywine and then ran off another beer. Maybe a session pale ale. Not sure how the second will turn out, but I didn't want to waste all that sweet sugar. Had some bumps along the way, but I think even if it doesn't turn out that great, it'll still be worth it. I spent the day on Friday (I usually write these the day after) helping over at 405 Brewing to get their taproom set up. I'm looking forward to having somewhere new in Norman to hang out. Come on out from noon to 3 pm if you feeling like having a good, local brew on Saturday. I think it's time to talk about the quiz now! Quiz was a lot of fun tonight. Some tough questions,

Patio Weather
RobertLove

As it warms to spring-like conditions, it is time to start reflecting on the greatness that is patio weather. We have it more than other places, but there are some days that it's just so perfect that you don't want it to end. That being said, make sure you check out your favorite patio this weekend, as it will be perfect weather for hanging out there. Speaking of the weather, we have had some relatively warm days lately that I have tried to make best use of. As you likely know, I spent some time working on a raised bed last weekend and will be trying to finish it up this weekend and get some stuff in the ground. I'm super excited about it. I have cleared all my pots from last

On the Playing Surface
RobertLove

Lots going on right now. Quiz was great. Laser is up and running. Working on replacing the laser bed. The one that came on it worked okay, but the new one will likely be much better. I'm replacing the old one with an expanded steel bed that will provide better support and a better surface to work from. Anyways, quiz time! Tonight's quiz was a good one. Lots of competition for both those beers and the gift certificates. Those teams taking home some free beer in their bellies were: Deer Lady, Inc.; Our Team Name is in Another Castle; CWA; and My So Called Judge. I hope you all enjoyed those tasty beverages! As

Pew Pew Pew
RobertLove

Got an ingraving laser today. Really looking forward to working with it to see what all we can do. Has a smallish print bed, but I think we'll make due. I think that we will start with coasters and go from there to see what else we can make! I will keep you all updated about the progress that we make in the future! Okay, so tonight's quiz was a good one, but we had a couple of things we need to work through. Some we can fix, others we just have to take in stride. So, let's think about what happened and come back better next week! Tonight's quiz was quite the doozy. Tough questions all around, including the bonuses. But, you're all very smart and we did get to hand out some

Busy Night!
RobertLove

Tonight's quiz was the busiest yet here at Bison Witches. We had eleven teams joining us! Woot! So, like I said, lots of participation, which, tonight, turned into lots of competition. What this means is at the end of the night we had a FOUR-WAY TIE!!! Yes, you heard me. Four-way tie. All in good fun though. After a good tie-breaker, we ended the night with Pulling Out is for Couches taking home the $25 Bison Witches gift certificate and Finished Glass Ceiling, Working on the Wall winning the $10 Bison Witches gift certificate. Make sure to spend those wisely. Those teams who got to take home some free beer in their

Beer Here!
RobertLove

I am known to enjoy a tasty, malt-based beverage from time to time. I have spent a while deciding what is good, what is bad, and what is just middle of the road for my taste, but have found that there is always an overriding order to my tastes. Here are my favorite beers in order: Free BeerCold BeerAll other beers While I mostly drink, and tend to enjoy more, craft beers, I still feel that there is a place for your standard mass produced beers. Out mowing the lawn on a Sunday? Not going to get your All Day. Here's a Coor's Banquet for ya. And, while most often I would seek out craft alternatives for the standard-bearers,

Appreciation
RobertLove

Had a scare with a family member before the quiz yesterday, but it ended up not being too serious. We are still waiting to hear some new information, but it seems like some good news for now. With that, don't forget to let others know how much you appreciate them. With that, I want to thank all of you who come out and play with us. I know that there have been threats of inclement weather, holidays, etc that have sometimes interfered with our fun, but after nearly four months of our quiz, we're building the the numbers and seeing more and more regulars. I hope you all are having fun, as I am having quite a bit of it. Now, let's dispense with all the sappiness. On to our Quiz! Tonight's

Let It Snow
RobertLove

Snow is in the forecast for Thursday night, so let's get it! I am writing this on Thursday morning, so I know that we have gotten about 3-4 inches of snow through the night and that the temperature is really damn cold. Any of you that had to work today, make sure you stay safe out on the roads. Give yourself extra time and don't rush. Accidents aren't worth it. I had the opportunity to go skiing this weekend, but decided it would be best to stay home this time. I'm a little upset about that decision, but know that it was the smarter decision. Taos got 4 to 5 inches of snow overnight, so if you're in the area, go enjoy that pow. Let's move onto the quiz. Tonight's quiz was a

A Great End to the Year
RobertLove

This year has had many ups and downs, but we have persevered through it. Our quiz is just over three months old at this time, but is still doing great. We have had some fluctuations in teams numbers, but everyone is kicking it in and making it happen! We will carry this momentum over to the new year. Speaking of, let's talk about the amateur hour that is New Years. Any of you ever watch How I Met Your Mother? Well, that's pretty much my opinion of how New Years generally goes. Grand plans with friends that end up all just falling apart or going to shit. Not to say it isn't a good time to get together and say hello to a new year, but often the grand plans are ruined. With that, be safe

What a Night!
RobertLove

Good night for a quiz! Lots of great questions and some tough competition. The winners of some free rounds of beer tonight were: Ho Ho Hos; Ghost of Joe Mixon's Dignity; Deez Nuts Roasting on an Open Fire; and War on Peace. I hope you all enjoyed those free beers. My favorite flavor of beer. My order goes: free beer, cold beer, and then all other beers. I think you will all agree with me if you really think about it. Our quiz was a tough one tonight with a lot of competition. After all was said and done, though, we can only have two winners. Our winners tonight were the Ho Ho Hos and the Ghost

What to Write Today
RobertLove

So, I have been thinking about the quiz and what I wanted to talk about today, but still am not coming up with anything too great, so let's start the writing exercise! Let's see, I think that the President-Elect's selection of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to head the EPA is dubious. Pruitt is an ardent climate-change denier, which I guess is cool, but probably not the best person to be running the organization that will be responsible for national policy on emissions and the environment. We will see though. I tend to be a serial optimist, so I am hoping that the changes in policy will not hinder the momentum of companies like Tesla. Speaking of Tesla, I find it interesting

Liars Gonna Lie
RobertLove

I work with students for my primary job. I know that most of them are often well-intentioned, while others are blatantly dishonest with you. This really goes for people in general, but as this is the example that I have, I am going to talk about it. I have a student that has been really trying for the second half of the semester, or so, and I was feeling confident about the progress that they were making. Until Thursday. They came in, informed me that they were not doing too well in the class and that it was due to something that our department had done. This was very disturbing to me, as our job is to help the students who come to see us. As this student had been generally
