Good Pi, Moon Man: The Ultimate Quiz
El Jeffe

I'm such an idiot. I didn't even go eat any pie yesterday, which is slightly obligatory, being that yesterday was Pi Day (3/14). I'm going to have to make up for it today. I'm thinking strawberry rhubarb, because apple is boring, merengue is too sweet, and pizza is not pie. Unless we are talking about Lou Malnati's, which my buddy just had shipped in. So, while Illinois digs themselves out of the snow I am going to hang out in my shorts and eat pizza and pie. I might tweet about it.    It has been four years that I have been running Quiz here at Jacksons, and it has been a blast! Lots of great teams, and great people coming through! I really enjoyed hanging

We Party To Have Translating Fun!
El Jeffe

A few years ago, while goofing around on the internet, i discovered this website called Translation Party. The goal of the site was to translate a phrase back and forth between languages, and then measure how many times the translation could happen before the phrase lost all meaning or stopped changing.   This really is a hell of a lot more fun than it sounds, especially when we have alcohol and friends around. It's also a lot of fun trying to figure out movie quotes that have been distorted in this manner, so that's what we did last night! Fun stuff!   Scores were fairly close by the end of Quiz! we actually had a Tie for Third,

Luckily, "Schadenfreude" Doesn't Require Punctuation...
El Jeffe

I understand that with great power comes great responsibility, thanks to a certain superhero film character, but I also recognize that with small amounts of power come small pleasures, and one of those is the power of relentless bureaucracy in action. When grading, there are ties to be brutal, and times to have mercy; a missed capitalization, for example, or an incorrect spelling, doesn't necessarily make an answer wrong, unless the round description specifies otherwise. But in the rounds where there is a technicality specified, that can turn an easy point into a shameful missed opportunity, I tend to imagine myself as the Boss protecting the Perfect Eight for that round, and each team as

Setting The Mood With A Quizmaster
El Jeffe

Once again, it is Valentines' Day, and once again, I don't really care.  That being said, I'm not going to complain about a central theme tying a quiz together -- it's fun, and lets people create some fun categories. So if you were lucky enough to come out and hang you got all the lovey-dovey references, which should put a bow on the day.   Speaking of love, and also a bit of hate, I spent the remainder of the night going hog on my buddy's new Nintendo Classic. It turns out that I am not as good at old games as I remember, and this is starting to become a point of contention. On the other hand, I did manage to get the farthest in Double Dragon, so I'm feeling

For My Next Trick, I Will Destroy A God
El Jeffe

It's not every day you encounter a giant beast and then proceed to /slay it with extreme prejudice, and it's definitely not always accompanied by epic, dramatic music, and so since I have been playing Final Fantasy XV for a while and am at the part where I beat on stuff that's waaaay bigger than me I figured it would be appropriate to share that crazy music during our Gods and Monsters round. Speaking of monsters, check out that first sentence. Wow.    That being said, after reading some of the questions from that round, I'm super hyped to see the next Godzilla movie. i guess it might come out in the West at some point so I'm just chilling, waiting with

Lo, And His Wings Were Wax, And He Fell
El Jeffe

Well, it's been a work week and a half, and I have finally managed to beat Final Fantasy XV and accidentally kill my entire party with a cool new thing (shortly after acquiring said cool new thing). Luckily, I saved, and can now pretend like that never happened and seek out giant scary monsters in deep caves like some sort of ultimate badass. And now I have a mariachi outfit to wear while I summon weapons from the aether and warp around beating on stuff. This game is weird. I love it.   We learned all sorts of new stuff about physics and science in Round 6! That was my favorite, because science is awesome! We covered a bunch of stuff across

Pulled A Muscle… Virtually?
El Jeffe

Maybe it was because of the Xbox One, or maybe not -- in any case, I played a bunch of videogames over the last few days and I think I might have gotten a bit too into it. My right arm hurts, and I think I might have strained it while trying really hard to pull off a really awesome trick in Steep. It's just another sign that I'm getting old. I'm injuring myself ding nothing at all. I fear that if I'm not careful my elbow will fall off or something. Actual skiing? That'll probably kill me.   We really tested everybody's art knowledge with a round about all the very subtle details that might go unnoticed. I guess quizzers like art, though -- great scores on that

The Evil Snowy Bad Times Approacheth!
El Jeffe

Once again, the weather forecast has a alot of snow in the forecast, and once again, I fully expect traffic to be awesome tonight and tomorrow, so I'm just getting in the zone by playing the Snowy Mountain (or whatever it's called) expansion in Forza Horizon 3. If I'm gonna be honest, it doesn't necessarily not help with driving skills, maybe… I guess it just depends on the car! Anyways, screwing around in a world where you can rewind time like Prince of Persia while careening around in a crazy awesome -- I recommend playing it. And if you're gonna drive around, get some good tires. I mean that last bit. It's worth the money.   Scores started off pretty

In Which I Fabricate A Blog From Thin Air!
El Jeffe

Every story needs a beginning, and every blog needs an introductory paragraph. With out any specific thought of what to write about, the Author is forced to string together an overall meaningless jumble of words in a potentially pointless attempt to entice readers with tasty factoids and exciting information. This is that opening paragraph. I hope it has been entertaining.   What a doozy of a quiz! We had some categories that were definitely off the beaten path, and a bit more of a challenge. My favorite was the one where we tested people's pattern recognition by embedding the alphabet into the answers -- like a SECRET CODE OMG WOW! And in case you

Rogue Bug: A Cricket Story.
El Jeffe

I just got to my friends house, and after a few minutes hanging out he exclaims "how the fuck are you getting out?!" Turns out, his expensive, high tech enclosure for his lizard has these little vents that allow bugs to escape their impending doom at the hands of his gecko, [Darth] Clyde. [Clyde is a badass -- he's old as fuuuuck] Anyways, rebellion QUASHED.   I got to see Rogue One on Saturday, and that ish is the ISH, kid! I think it's my favorite Star Wars movie, because it feels more realistic overall than any of the others (with one glaring exception). Super awesome action, great characters, and pretty much what i wanted it to be. Ever play Halo: Reach?

I'm sitting here stuck in traffic while my buddy drives back from the motorcycle store. I don't know why it bugs me so much -- oh wait, yeah I do! I want to figure out a way to test traffic patterns and figure out what is the best framework for traffic to take the edge off. The problem is that I don't think coming up with a solution would take unless I could trick people on a massive scale.    Instead of regaling you with all the fun stuff that happened last night, I'm just gonna throw out the results.

This Week Is Fantastic, Finally
El Jeffe

After one of the longest summers ever, we finally have a significant stretch of cold weather. At the moment it's just 5º out, and to be honest i'm not thrilled -- I like being warm.   That being said, it lends an air of authenticity to the game I just started, called Steep. Its a game about snowboarding, skiing, parasailing and wingsuits, and its super fun, and all you have to do to make it really realistic is open the door while you play, and it's like you're actually there!   Or, you know, leave the door closed, heater on, and don't suffer unnecessarily! Drink some hot cocoa and then jump off a mountain and glide down

The Swedest Quiz Of The Year
El Jeffe

Yesterday, and today, have been completely consumed by the launch of Final Fantasy XV. I have been eagerly awaiting this game for a long time, and so far it is completely meeting my expectations. We'll see what happens as I get further, but this has been super fun.   The very first question of Round 1 just happened to have Sweden as the answer, and I just happend to arbitrarily pick a song by a band from Sweden to accompany the round. One of our quizzers asked if I did it intentionally, and even though I did not, I decided it would be fun to see if i could get through quiz only playing bands from sweden.    I managed.   Round

I'm Begin To Doubt Your Commitment To Sparkle Motion
El Jeffe

Last night was fun. Like, a really good time. There are a few reasons why, but to start, we had some non-standard rounds. That means, if you play regularly, that some of the rounds didn't follow the standard protocols that you might be used to by now. Like Round 2, where we knocked the title/artist paradigm right on its ass and tried to screw with the quizzers! Or the round where you only need to get one answer right to win, as long as it's the right answer!   Look, I like any situation where I get to mess with people and get paid, and also schädenfreude is a really great word that I like to use as much as possible, and you should just freaking google

One of my favorite feelings is when I'm reading a book or watching a movie and one of the characters does something that is totally badass, and I can't help but pump my fist and celebrate. I got one of those while reading in my car right before quiz. Somebody materializing a knife out of midair on accident and whoopin' some ass just has that effect, I guess.    So I'm not surprised, but we had one round that was all about drugs and alcohol, and every team got every answer right.
