Rule Against Perpetual Bar Exam Questions
Extra Terresticle

At last night’s Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at the Hong Kong, we had a Raise the Bar round on bar exam stuff. Ugh, the bar exam, it’s giving me shudders and I didn’t even take it. But I did have a front row seat at the bar exam studying show last summer as my girlfriend spent months agonizing over laws, torts, cases, decisions, legalize, etc. It was tough to watch, but she did pass it, and was admitted to the Massachusetts Bar in a nice ceremony a few weeks ago at Faneuil Hall. I quizzed her on the Raise the Bar round and to no surprise she would have gotten eight points. (She only got seven questions right, but on RtB rounds, you only need to get the final question

Where No Quiz Has Gone Before
Extra Terresticle

At last night’s Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at the Hong Kong, we revisited early episodes from Star Trek: The Original Series. First, a note about the show. It aired on NBC starting in 1966 and lasted for three seasons. It had a pilot episode completed in 1965, but the episode was never aired. NBC didn’t like it very much, but thought enough of it to commission a second pilot. The first pilot, titled “The Cage,” had Captain Christopher Pike helming the USS Enterprise. It was in the second pilot, “Where No Man Has Gone Before,” where Captain James T. Kirk was in charge of the ship. But this pilot too was not initially aired. The first ever episode of

That is One Magic Loogie!
Extra Terresticle

Yesterday marked the anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, so naturally at the Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at the Hong Kong, we had a round on the event. The round was titled Back and to the Left, a reference that seemed to confuse many of the Geeks, so I had to explain that Back and to the Left was the phrase repeated several times in the Oliver Stone film JFK. You see, the Warren Commission, the government’s investigation into the assassination of President Kennedy, concluded that it was a single shooter, Lee Harvey Oswald, who shot the president from the Texas School Book Depository. At the time of the assassination, the president’s

Fireball + Rumchata + No Food = 4 Hours of Cinnamon Barf
Extra Terresticle

So I’m friends with many of my Hong Kong regulars. Some I’ve known since before my QM days, while others I’ve only just met in recent weeks. Among those I’ve known for a while and have spent time with outside of quiz, there are many experiences that we can look back upon and reminisce about. But there are also some shared experiences that we really don’t look upon too fondly at. The final question of round four at last night’s Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz elicited memories of a night that would fall into the latter category. It started with a winter weekend getaway to my friend’s ski house in New Hampshire. There were about 35 people in the

This One Wasn’t Too Close to Call
Extra Terresticle

Election results poured in while intrepid quizzers matched wits at the Hong Kong Restaurant in Harvard Square last night. Questions on famous Hillarys and Donalds, food reality shows, and countries that don’t exist anymore presented challenges for the assembled crowd, but unlike Michigan or New Hampshire, this one was decided pretty early in the night. A strong performance on the first audio round plus the joker put If Brady Votes for Trump, Gisele May Cut Off His Allowance into an early lead, giving that team an 80% chance at victory after three rounds. The lead was still intact through round six, but with two 16-point rounds remaining, there were opportunities

Cambridge? More Like Cavitybridge!
Extra Terresticle

How many of you are familiar with Cambridge’s rich candy-making history? In the mid-1800s, NECCO began making their wafers in Cambridge; and over the next 100 years, they were joined by more than 60 other candy makers. Up and down Main St., candy factories churned out their confectionaries until a handful of national companies, like Hershey and Nestle, established a market dominance. Those big companies either bought out the smaller ones and relocated the manufacturing to more centrally located factories, or drove the other companies out of business entirely. One factory is still in use, however, where more than 15 million Junior Mints are produced every day. And there are

Hey Hong Kong quizzers! While Ryan is out and about galivanting the countryside, I got to spend the night with all of you! Really, I feel like I got the better deal. I mean, I doubt that he got to have a sing-a-long to This is Halloween.   Speaking of Ryan, did you know that this past weekend your Boston Quizmasters (or at least a few of them) ventured to NOLA for a Quizmaster Convention? What happens at a convention for QMs, you might ask? Well, I refer you to the company name: Geeks Who Drink. I mean, we also get to have a bunch of panels where we learn how to be better at our job, and we get to see the QMs from across the country! But mostly, we follow the company line.

I had a team last night come up with a team name that they were so excited to have me read, that in my mind I was likening them to a group of school children who just had someone spell “I cup” out loud.

If you read last week’s blog, you would have read about how George H. W. Bush appointed David Souter to the Supreme Court on the recommendation of John Sununu.

Who But John Sununu
Extra Terresticle

We had a question at last night’s Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at the Hong Kong that name dropped John Sununu, and I realized that even though he was a well-known New Hampshire politician, many of my Geeks might not be familiar with him. So let me give you a quick rundown of his life so you will always think about the Granite State when you hear Sununu. Sununu was born in Havana and has three degrees from MIT. He spent most of the 80s as the governor of New Hampshire before becoming George H. W. Bush’s Chief of Staff. While Chief of Staff, he recommended David Souter to President Bush as a nominee to the Supreme Court. Souter was nominated and while he started out conservative-leaning,

The Butler at the Weigh Station with the German Nuclear Weapon

At last night’s Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at the Hong Kong, we had a round on fictional nannies, butlers, and maids, and where we learned that Ask.com still does 200 million searches each month. (It was in the round because it used to be Ask Jeeves.) Think about it. A few weeks ago we learned that there were 500 million Yahoo accounts. That’s one in every 14 people on earth (I know, I know, many of those users had more than one account). Following that logic, if everyone who performed a search on Ask.com did one search per month, that’s still one out of every 35 people on this planet using that site. That’s crazy.

Quizzers Celebrate Milestones Too

In my running club, I’ve been meticulous about keeping track of the number of runs I’ve been to. A few weeks ago I celebrated my 500th run, and have done another five since then. Not many others in the group keep track of their runs, even though some places will give you special gifts to recognize your milestones, like a 500 runs patch. Well I recently learned that I am not the only one to keep such fastidious records.

And with this summer being the hottest in recent memory, I’ve been looking forward to autumn more than usual. I know that not everyone shares my enthusiasm for fall.

A Lack of Love for Lochte
Extra Terresticle

At last night’s Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at the Hong Kong, we had three teams jump on U.S. swimmer Ryan Lochte with their team names. Now he erred big time, and he deserves the heat everyone’s throwing him, but I’m not so sure he’s the pathological liar that people are making him out to be. Let’s think about this. He got very drunk and made an ass out of himself. That’s on him. But in that extremely drunken state, it’s very possible that he saw people who were dressed up in security attire with guns and he thought that they were people trying to be cops. Then he got asked for money which when combined with the not exactly cops and their
