I’m Never Leaving My House Again
Extra Terresticle

At last night’s Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at the Hong Kong, we learned that a new species of tarantula was discovered near Sacramento, and that the Venus Fly Trap can count. I don’t know about you all, but I’m not leaving my house ever again. Tarantulas in Northern California? Nope. It’s only a matter of time before they’ve canvassed the entire United States. And counting plants? How soon until they start counting their human victims? Until the take over the world? Madness! At last night’s quiz, almost all of the teams aced the round on backwards movie plots, and there were some stellar scores in the this day in overplay audio round. How stellar?

Theme? What Theme?
Extra Terresticle

There was no theme at last night’s Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at the Hong Kong. No theme at all. I’m telling you, there was nothing tying parts of last night’s quiz together. Just rounds on FNORD, mind control, skull & bones, Bavaria, 666, hidden imagery in money, and other stuff. But for some unifying Illuminati-like theme, well it didn’t exist. I was surprised by the scores on the money round. The round showed eight close ups of US currency, and the Geeks had to name the denomination. And only two teams aced it. One team even guessed a penny, despite the fact that none of the pieces of money were copper in color. The top team on the night

More Fun with TV Show Names
Extra Terresticle

I hope you all enjoyed the Friday Night Tights round at last night’s Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at the Hong Kong. I thought the Shart Tank one was particularly clever. Reaping Rainbow was pretty good too. I thought I’d continue the theme with some plays on MCU shows. An unorthodox P.I. has a little bit of fun with a fellow gifted character: Jessica Bones. Or how about a blind crime fighter doesn’t realize his clothes were replaced with transparent linens: Baredevil. Then there’s the upcoming series about a superhero who tries to rebuild his life as a wizard: Luke Mage. These are relevant because of a question in round five about Claire Temple, the nurse in

The Reliability of Encyclopædia Britannica
Extra Terresticle

I realized at last night’s Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at the Hong Kong that Wikipedia has so established itself as the encyclopedic source of information on the internet that Encyclopædia Britannica is a complete afterthought. I mean, I don’t think I can tell you the last time I looked up anything in Britannica, or any other encyclopedia for that matter. Does Britannica even have a website? Without looking it up, I honestly don’t know. Britannica made an appearance in last night’s quiz when it was pointed out that the story about Ben Franklin’s kite is in fact an actual event according to the reference book. Curious, I looked up other oddities

Leaning Tower of Quizza
Extra Terresticle

Some interesting facts I learned about the Leaning Tower of Pisa in preparation for last night’s quiz: The tower actually started leaning during its construction, and would have toppled over by now if construction wasn’t halted multiple times for assorted wars against other Italian cities. These breaks in construction allowed the ground underneath to settle and stabilize. Because the tower started leaning during construction, engineers tried to make the floors taller on one side to try to compensate for the lean. This actually gives the tower a curved shape. Although in my opinion, I would think that the extra building materials on the lower side would

And That Wraps Up My Last Quiz of 2015
Extra Terresticle

Thanks to all who came out to the Hong Kong for my last Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz of 2015. Instead of waxing poetic on the year that was, I’m going to outline my goals and highlight some events for the upcoming year. I’m generally not good at keeping resolutions, but I have a trip to Denmark planned for July so that should help motivate me to keep this one: learning 500 words in Danish and becoming proficient enough to have a conversation in the language. I’ve gotten a little bit of a head start on this one and it’s going to be a challenge. The grammar seems to be a little easier than German, and the vocabulary doesn’t appear to be too difficult, but

Man, so many familiar faces among the Geeks at last night’s Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at the Hong Kong. What an awesome time. Thanks to all of you for coming out. In addition to my fantastic regulars, the guy who introduced me to Geeks way back when was making a visit back to Boston, and unbeknownst to me organized a large group of friends to play the quiz. But it wasn’t just his group. I had old friends, new friends, friends I hadn’t seen in years, friends I hadn’t seen in weeks, girlfriends (one present, one past), former regulars, and even one of my younger sisters who as we learned in round three, was born just a few months after Justin Bieber.

A Brief History of Late Night Shows
Extra Terresticle

So we learned two things at last night’s Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at the Hong Kong. First, CBS’s Mike & Molly is coming to an end after the upcoming season. And second, David Letterman predated Jay Leno for one of NBC’s late night comedy programs. To expand upon the latter, The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson ran on NBC up until Carson’s retirement in 1992. For the 10 years prior, Dave Letterman hosted Late Night with David Letterman after The Tonight Show, and when Carson retired, many thought Letterman would take over The Tonight Show, however, NBC gave it to Leno.

A Civil War Battle, as Told with Metaphors
Extra Terresticle

At last night’s Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at the Hong Kong, we had a question about which vessel fought on the Union side in the Civil War: the Monitor or the Merrimack. Maybe you all are a little Massachusetts-centric, but the answer was not the Merrimack (like the river), but actually the Monitor. Although I shouldn’t go too hard on you as the ship was indeed named after the river. You see, what happened was the USS Merrimack was hanging out in a navy yard in Virginia when the war started. The officer at the yard who was loyal to the Union ordered the ships destroyed and sunk. Well unfortunately for the Union, the Confederates were able to salvage several of the ships,

Christmas Tree Farms are Not a Solid Investment in the Northeast
Extra Terresticle

At last night’s Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at the Hong Kong, we had a question about the four states that produce at least a million real Christmas trees each year. The answers were Oregon, North Carolina, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, but all of my teams guessed at least one of Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Now I know that we’re all a little New England-centric up here, and we tend to think we’re at the center of the universe, but let’s take a closer look at the Christmas tree production numbers available by our friends at the USDA.

Shouldn’t We Not Be Teaching Our Kids That?
Extra Terresticle

At last night’s Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at the Hong Kong, we had a question about the Harry Potter Sorting Hat. In case you’re unaware, every kid who enters Hogwarts has to sit in front of his or her classmates while a hat decides which of the four houses he or she will enter. Now each of the houses has its own unique personality, and the hat attempts to match up each kid with his or her appropriate house. But if you stop and think about this for a second, you realize that this is essentially teaching kids that it’s okay to make a snap decision on somebody and judge a book by its cover.

Why Can’t She Say Something Nice About Someone?
Extra Terresticle

So Adele is back after what felt like a ten-year hiatus with a new single called “Hello.” I finally got around to listening to the song and I had to stop and think, what does her current boyfriend think about all of her songs to her exes? Can’t she sing about something nice in her life for once? Maybe their relationship, or maybe their kid, or something positive? I’m sure he doesn’t have Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain” complex going on, or a need for something like Sara Bareilles’ “Love Song,” but can’t he take center stage for once?

A Logical Explanation of the Quizdoku
Extra Terresticle

We had another Quizdoku round at the Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz last night at the Hong Kong. This time the round was on action movies. Let’s walk through the round and show how you could use logic to max out your points. First, a quick explanation: in Quizdoku rounds, every answer is a number, and each base 10 digit, 0-9, gets used exactly once. This means that in the eight answers you could have either six one-digit answers and two two-digit answers, or seven one-digit answers and one three-digit answer. Well we had a question on the last two numbers of a year and a question on a vehicle speed, so that right away indicated that the pattern would be the former.

It’s Hard Being Thor’s Brother

Imagine being an actor and having a few roles in some television shows. Things are going okay, you’re having some success, but nothing too noteworthy. Then imagine your younger brother lands a small role as James Kirk’s father in the 2009 film Star Trek. It’s pretty cool, you’re proud of him and stuff, but you’re still the big brother. Then all of a sudden, he lands the role of Thor in the Marvel Comics films. And you? Yeah, you just became a footnote.

What’s More Haunting? Ghosts? Or Jewel’s Cover Songs?
Extra Terresticle

I think the answer obviously is Jewel’s cover songs. Her renditions of The Needle and the Damage Done as well as Blue Christmas were downright frightening, but not frightening enough to trick any of you. Indeed, in a round that I thought was sure to leave you with low scores, you all managed to average 10.4 points. Good job. Now only if you all knew John Hiatt. In this week’s déjà vu answer, only two teams got all three occurrences of Mad Max: Fury Road correct.
