AHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA the thought might drive you mad
Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!We started the evening with a relatively easy geography round--from the get-go, we told you all the countries were South American. And we gave you some clues that weren't particularly geography-based anyway. You just had to name the country.Our music round was an acrostic--the first letter of each artist's name in 1-7 spelled out the name of the artist for #8! Some of you managed to puzzle-piece together some of the artists you didn't know, which is exactly the point of the round.Our special format round was a round in which I named two people, and you had to tell me if they were ever alive at the same time. Just a simple yes or no. Most

Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!We started the evening with a Duh! round, in which you have to be careful not to overthink your answers. We asked you what is likely the only thing you know about Steamboat Willie, so that was pretty simple. Answer our question about tape was easy as long as you know what "tartan" means.Our music round was all songs and artists that will never hurt you. Unlike sticks and stones. Which COINCIDENTALLY came up in each track one way or another.Our special format round was a 50/50 round in which you had to identify if the thing I was describing was a Mamet play, or a Geico commercial. This round really showed me how many of you still watch

Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!We started the evening with a Recently in Stuff round, and WOW was there a lot to talk about. We tried not to make it TOO DEPRESSING and thus avoided talking exclusively about politics, but unfortunately we didn't get to bring up Beyonce's twins, because the quiz was written before she announced them. But if Beyonce having twins doesn't make you happy, I don't know what would.Our music round was all artists with February birthdays, and I know it is often tough to pick a country artist for some of those country songs. Too many guys and they all sound the same. When in doubt, though,

Hey there, quizzers!Wow, 22 teams! It was SO CROWDED!!! Thanks so much for coming to see me. :')We started the evening with a round that was all Q'd up--every answer started with Q. No, I wasn't asking about the Bond character.Our music round was an acrostic! The first letter of every artist in 1-7 spelled the artist name in #8. As music rounds go, this one wasn't GREAT for you guys, but there was still a team that managed to only miss one point.Our special format round was a 50/50 round asking what those movies were really about. What exactly is Rogue One, and where is Manchester by the Sea? That kind of thing. THIS round went MUCH better for

Hey there, quizzers!We started the quiz off with Eight Quick, Hotly Disputed Questions on Israel. So yes, there was a little Middle Eastern geography for you, and some modern history too. But we gave you a lot of leeway, because, you know, Round 1. Then our music round was a classic This Day in Overplay: we played clips of historically #1 songs on January 17 in prior years. Y'all, overplayed or not, Truly, Madly, Deeply is my JAM.Then we had a round on Reddit AMAs--we read some real questions asked of real celebrity-types on Reddit, and you had to name the celebrity-type who was doing the AMA. Not Steve Jobs, because he's, you know, dead.Round

Hey there, quizzers!What a night! The weather was back to gorgeous and I guess that explains why we were so crowded! Thanks for coming out!We started the quiz off with a "Duh!" round, where the name of the game is to not overthink your answers. Kevin Smith was a clerk! Surprise! Apparently actually surprising, though, was the fact that the Dutch East Indies are not India. Whoops.Then our music round was all songs and artists about kicking addictions. Obvi we heard from Amy Winehouse, but Jane's Addiction might have been just a little TOO on the nose.Then we had a speed round on Pacific volcano countries. Italy is not on the Pacific, people.

Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!I am so glad to be back! Superthanks to Alyssa for subbing for me while I was in Houston last week (NOT huffing glue etc etc but thanks for starting those rumors girl)! It's nice to be back home.We started the night with a only-mildly horrifying Recently in Stuff round--out of 2016 and hopefully leaving the horrors behind us. You know, except for the terror attack in Istanbul and the Republicans trying to cut their own ethical oversight committee.Our music round tonight was seven songs whose titles spelled out a country; you had to give me those titles and artists as usual. However, your last two points were not a song

WELL HELLO!  I'm a first time sub QM here at Billy's because Julia is off in a glue huffing contest or something. She may have told me what she was actually doing but I have no flipping clue. Maybe it was spraypaint. I don't know. I told her not to as she has a very particular delicate condition and all, but she just flipped me the bird via email and I showed up to do our quiz!  Billy's has a particular thing that I always order when I go here. It's those chili cheese fries. They are THA BOMB. Seriously. Lightly seasoned fries, delicous chili, perfect real cheese. There's nothing wrong with this plate. OH LET US NOT FORGET THE RANCH DRESSING. I used to thing

Hey there, quizzers!Christmas is almost here, so of course we had several Christmas-y rounds tonight. Of course, Chanukkah is also almost here, but we did not really discuss much about the Chosen People. Even so, Round 1 was only nominally Christmas-y; the round was "Ho Ho Ho!" and all your answers started with those two letters. Easy!Our music round was another delightful bout of covers by our favorite Christian band, ApologetiX. They took some normal songs and made all-too-serious non-parodies to make the songs about Christmas. Didn't think it was possible to ruin The Beatles, but it turns out it's actually quite easy.In our special format round tonight,

Plus, I made a *special announcement*
Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!We started tonight with an easy enough Round 1; all your answers were pairs of words, one of which had "bb" in the middle. The other word was spelled exactly like the first word, minus the two "b's," and you had to give me both words. "Hobble" seems to be a word not many of you know, but otherwise this round went fairly well for you.Our music round was songs from movies, and instead of naming the songs you named the movie they were from. Most of these were pretty simple for you, but Scott Pilgrim vs. the World gave you some trouble. Then in Round 3 we talked about Revolutionary War people and events, and no, you could not have really

Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!We were pretty crowded inside tonight, and I *suspect* it is because nobody wanted to play outside in 40 degree weather. Probably. So thanks for makintg me feel so popular inside!We started the night with a round on Kraft Mac 'n' Cheese, because it is inarguably the best nonperishable food on the planet. I'll fight anyone who says otherwise. Then in our music round we combined two songs with identical titles, and because we're so mean we gave you OPTIONS for your points. You could EITHER give the songs' title for one point, OR name both ARTISTS for two points. No picking and choosing! Some of you...should have just gone for the titles.

Hey there, quizzers!It was so great to see everybody post-Thanksgiving! The air was slightly chilly and we were all happy to be back. It's finally fall!We started the night with a Gloom and Doom edition of Recently in Stuff. Obviously there's been some Trump stuff in the news, but Fidel Castro's had a bad month, too. (What, too soon?)The music round was a Raise the Bar round on songs with "Love" in the title. It was a little different from your average music round; instead of getting points based on your total correct, you got points based on the hardest title and artist you could name correctly. I did not think any of you would know Richard Hell and the

Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!We started the night off with words that can be made from rearranging the letters in the word "population," and you guys rocked it. Except for not knowing the 1986 Best Picture winner. But whatever.Our second audio round was Cake Jams! All the artists celebrate November birthdays. None of the songs were about cake. Or by Cake. But maybe some day, they will be. Although Still Alive from Portal is the only song I can think of that is about cake.Our third round was a multiple choice round about sports! Specifically, sports leagues that use balls. More specifically, he MLB, the NBA, and the NFL. The NHL has NO balls!By our fourth

Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!Thanks to the intrinsic horrors of recent events, we spent tonight trying to laugh a little and recuperate from election season. So we took literally every opportunity to poke fun at our President-Elect. We've been holding it in for over a year, and tonight, we let it all loose.In Round 1, we focused on his tiny hands. Every answer could only be spelled using letters in the word "hands," in fact. Then our music round was Losers, Haters, Sad! Songs about failure, hating, and sadness. Obviously we were going to hear from Taylor Swift and Beck. Lit might have been more of a surprise.For our special format round tonight, we had

Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!We started our night with a Recently in Stuff round, covering Newt Gingrich being a jerk (surprise) and Russia having a mega-nuke (eek). Then our music round was covers of songs that had been #1 on previous November 2nd's. We went all the way back to the 60's and came as recent as 2015. Yes, I do already own that Muppets cover of a Beach Boys song. I know you suspected.Our Round 3 was a Sooner or Later round on historical decades. I was surprised how many of you turned it in Sooner; it was a kind of hard round. And yes, some of you who turned it in Sooner really should have held onto it.Then our Round 4 was about fictional

Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!We started our night with a remembrance of events past--from the last week of October. Columbus, that asshole, landed on Cuba, and there was a shootout at the OK Corral about four hundred years later.Then in the music round we heard songs from 2017 Rock n Roll Hall of Fame nominees. We were all a little surprised at some of these people not ALREADY being part of the Hall of Fame! The Cars??? Really???Our third round was a speed round on MLB teams who have won the World Series since 2003. Yes, some of them have won more than once--that's why there are only 8 teams for the last 13 years.
