No one told me it was QuizMaster Appreciation Week!
Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!We got off to a touching start, as before quiz even began a team gave me a framed letter of Quizmaster appreciation. Granted, it was a parody of a letter that one of my students gave me for Teacher Appreciation Day, and granted, they plagiarised off a 15-year-old girl, but it was still sweet. And very hilarious. Thanks guys <3 :').Once quiz did get started, we had a round in which we did some wordplay with military ranks, and a music round that wasn't as sexy as the round theme implied. Then you had to tell me if the real, new gizmo that I described was worth more or less than the dollar amount I gave you. You knew when you heard the word "dongle"

Kansas City is not the Capitol of Kansas
Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!Tonight was great! So many teams--14 of you!! Billy's was crazy stupid packed too, which made me feel ohsopopular that I found myself blushing. Not really, but I could have. We started the night with a "Duh!" round, and some of you thought too hard on all of it. Be dumber, y'all. In a "Duh!" round, when I ask a question about Marxism, answering with "Engels" is thinking too much.Then we had a music round where all the songs had the name of a city in their title, and I'm not going to lie to you, I personally only sort-of-knew two of those songs. You guys, though, seriously knew what you were doing.Round 3 was really awesome

Does Charles Manson even count as a famous "hippie" enough that it somehow makes it understandable to confuse him with JESUS?
Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!Hey remember how we usually have a team called Flying Spaghetti Monsters? They would have started the night with an amazing coincidence, as their team name was literally the answer to R1Q1. BUT they weren't here tonight. Sucks for them! That's why you should always come to quiz whether there's a flood warning or not.In Round 2, y'all got way more excited than I was expected to hear 50 Cent, so when Marky Mark and Funky Bunch came on I was expecting y'all to blow the roof off. But you had trouble recognizing Jimmy Fallon's version of the song :-(In Round 3, it really paid off to be a big fan of the Friday the 13th and

I'm sorry my Falcon Punch voice isn't better
Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!We had 18 teams tonight that rocked my world. It was so great to see all of y'all come out and play with me again. As an added bonus, Quizmasters Chelsea and Kavi crashed our party and I got to hang out with them for awhile after quiz! They didn't even heckle me that much.Quiz highlights! We had a round about caps that somehow ended with the word "prostate." The bar staff got understandably excited that the music round was called "Tip Your Staff." We compared France to the UK and learned that France had a potato ban that lasted almost a quarter of a century. Our Recently in Stuff round revealed that even

The closest quiz I've ever been part of
Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!EVERYBODY held their joker until Round 8 tonight, which I have never seen happen before. It made the entire quiz super intense and a little scary for me, weirdly. I was really worried we would end up with like a four way tie or something. We started the night off with a round about money, kind of. More like, a round about words that can also be slang for "money," sometimes. Props to those of you who spelled Dia de los Muertos correctly.Then we had a round of songs that were vaguely about walls. Yes, we heard from Pink Floyd, Miley Cyrus, and, of course, Oasis. No, that was not Ariana Grande.Round 3 was a Real or Shit round where

Earth Day is for the Birds, or something
Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!!Thanks to all 14 teams that came out tonight!! We had a grand old time with that nice breeze outside and the great crowd inside. Let's talk quiz!Round 1 was all about palindromes. Well, not really ABOUT palindromes, so much as CONSISTING OF palindromes. All the answers were spelled the same forward as backward, is my point. The number of you who could not think of Jeremy Renner's last name was...disappointing.The music round tonight had songs whose titles either were or contained the name of a TV show. The best show that popped up was obviously "Lost," while the worst show that came up was...hard to choose. "Step by Step," maybe?Round

"Sixteen Candles" is the one with the wedding
Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!A solid twelve teams came out for quiz tonight, with a lot of you out on the porch since the weather was so nice. Too bad the quiz had so much death in it? Social Singularity was DQ'd for being too big, which meant that by the end of the night our real winners were After jail, Hernandez no longer tight end. A tie for 3rd place became a 2nd place tie between Ian McKellan as Cogsworth and We've Got Nothing. The tie went to Ian McKellan, and We've Got Nothing had to be happy with the paltriest of somethings.We started the night with a round that was basically about sightseeing in US cities,

The important thing to remember is that Sarah Palin is NOT on the Supreme Court
Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!Tonight we were back up to 15 teams, which was super exciting for me to see. Quizmaster Gerald was visiting, AND an old friend of mine from high school and college was randomly here to play with her coworkers! She didn't even know I would be there! It was crazy. We got to catch up and talk about stuff and things. AND her team ended up in second place! Congrats, Theresa!We had a round on things that are spelled the same way as Greek letters, in which we learned that very few of you listen to Linkin Park/know what Nu-Metal is. We had a music round that broke your brains as we played jazz covers of songs and made you name the song and original artist. If you
