Your Mom Finds Strangers in the Alps for Spare Change
Nick Danger

I’ve somehow become accustomed to these quizzes being barn-burners and last night was no exception. The points were flying thick and fast as nine teams duked it out for their hard-earned points. Blood, sweat, and tears are all gross, especially when mixed together like some sort of maniacal witch’s brew, but they were all thrown my way last night. Ew. Anyways, here a recap of the thing I learned at last night’s quiz:   Michael Phelps can freestyle? I guess everybody’s a rapper these days.   Katy Perry sounds much better in 8-bit. Lil John still sounds like shit.   The advent of

What? Geek Is Evolving!
Nick Danger

It’s official: this year’s election race has become a freaking sideshow circus. On one hand, we have democratic frontrunners playing break up/make up so suddenly it makes it hard to trust anything they say, on the other hand we have republican speakers backbiting like cursed spears and throwing up nazi salutes. It’s enough to make one’s head spin. Is this really the choice we’re all faced with? Is this really all we have to look forward to? But oh ho ho! Fret not my quizzers, for I have some exciting news to bequeath upon you: I, Nick Danger, announce my intention to run for president on an independent platform! That’s right, screw those mud-flinging

Less Miserable Than Watching Moulin Rouge
Nick Danger

Last night’s quiz marked a bittersweet occasion for me. Y’see, last week my beloved laptop (tank of a thing though it might have been) heaved its final, tired breath and its hard drive failed. I could have just bought another hard drive, but I think it was time to move on. Rest in pieces, Lappy…and a warm welcome to Lappy 2.0! Natch Lappy 2.0 is upgraded from its predecessor in nearly every way (except sheer weight), and she's already becoming like a natural extension of my own form...so shiny…so chrome. *ahem* Anyways. We had a quiz last night!   Competition was fierce! From the

I Caught A Tauros, His Name Is Tex!
Nick Danger

Last night was, without any doubt whatsoever, an evening of tumultuous, rambunctious, incorrigible, and- Dare I say? Fantastical events! The shock! The awe! The reptilian shapeshifters! The Pokemon GO! The points. THE POINTS. Good gods man, the points! You'll find all that and more in this week's blog! Read on! Read on!   All right, you all jazzed? Good. Let's talk about this Pokemon GO shit. First things first: who'd you pick for your starter? I hovered on Charmander for a moment 'cause he and I go way back, but I eventually settled on Bulbasaur because I figured, “Heck. It's Arizona, Nick. There's gonna be fire types all over

Of Politics, Pharell, and Portmanteaus
Nick Danger

Ho. ly. Shit. What a quiz! I’ve not seen a night this high-scoring even since I very first took on the illustrious mantle of the Quizmaster. No fewer than FIVE teams pulled a perfect, jokered round two out of their asses, and that was just the beginning! Heck, two teams had a perfect score at the first break. Y’all outdid yourselves last night, and that makes me the proud papa. <3 Here’s what I learned!   There are people who don’t know what the three primary colors are. I can only assume they’re actually just dogs disguised as humans and thus are colorblind, attributing to their failure to know this simplest of art-based

Cyndi Lauper Is A National Treasure, You Guys
Nick Danger

You’d think I’d get tired of saying it, but I don’t: Last night’s quiz was another for the history books. Fourteen teams raged like wildfire through eight rounds of questions like Mongols through Baghdad.  It was a brutal tournament of intellectual barbarians, pencils like swords cutting wide swaths of bloody answers across the plains of their scoresheets like raids through great fields of brainy grain. Ok, so I’m being a tad dramatic but still. Shit was cool. Also there was a lot of mention of Cyndi Lauper who, being a HUGE alcoholic, is a personal hero of mine. So that was neat. Anyhoo, here’s some cool things I learned last night!   Barney

If The Jets Are The Greatest Thing About America We're In Serious Trouble
Nick Danger

Another great quiz in the bank! Last night’s was a barn-burner to be remembered as fifteen teams just absolutely wrecked it. The winning team was literally within ten points of having a perfect quiz, and they weren’t the only ones with the all-time high score in mind. It was madness, madness I say! Let’s get into some of the details. Here are some of the things I learned last night:   Twinkies are apparently a booming industry. I can’t believe people still eat that shit. Or still care about the Playboy Mansion. How old is that place now? I bet the inside looks tacky af. All old-school eighties wallpaper and furniture that you’d

Of Bangs, Baskets, and Boxing
Nick Danger

Ah sports. My mortal enemy. Last night’s quiz saw a late start due to some sort of baskets-ball thing going on. Being a self-described punk rock icon myself, jocks are the base to my proverbial acid. I do declare I will never understand them and their armchair POV when it comes to things they enjoy. But that’s not why you’re here today. Nay, you’ve journeyed all the way out here to Blog Mountain to hear about some quiz. And hear you shall!   The crunched timeframe made for a truncated quiz, but what it lacked in length it made up in girth. Wait…no. Not girth. Quality! Quality’s the word I meant. Anyhoo, I anticipated

Musical Instruments Made Out of Animals
Nick Danger

So here we are again, kiddies. Another Wednesday night quiz, another Thursday afternoon blog. Last night’s was another fun one. I’m always a big fan of the before and after rounds, and any day I get to say, “Poop potatoes” into a microphone is a good one. I love my life. Anyhoo, on to the quiz! Here’s some stuff that happened:   I found out that a charango is an instrument and not something you order at Taco Bell at 3 am when you’re piss drunk. You really do learn something new every day.   I also found out that there was a G. I. Joe named Footloose!?! Oh man, he had to be the guy they left behind

Laugh All You Want, It's Not Gonna Bring the Rain Forest Back
Nick Danger

You know what I love? A good list. With that in mind, here’s a few random thoughts from last night’s quiz:   If Saudi Arabia is the Mecca of Meccas, then Japan is the Mecca of mechas.   At one point in time, Hollywood felt that Kevin Costner was worth more than Whitney Houston. Wrap your head around that shit.   A flying kick is a prime example of someone choosing fight AND flight.   It takes a village to raise a child…and also to raise a barn. You can raise the roof all by yourself though if you'd like.   I honestly think that some countries pick the grossest-looking

Dat Disney Quiz Look Fire Doe
Nick Danger

 Look, I’m gonna be flat-out honest with you guys here. I’m in a real hurry because I’ve got some meth cooking in a thermos in a ditch off of the I-17 North and I gotta make this quick. So here’s a list of things I learned last night:   America has finally had its first successful penis transplant. In other news, I’m now on two separate organ waiting lists. I mean, I may need a new liver, but I would absolutely love to trade up from a subcompact to a full-sized luxury model. You’re welcome for the unwanted mental imagery.   Everybody still hates Bush. The band, not the…y’know what? It’s

Who’s Alfred Hitchcock? I’m Just Describing My Weekend.
Nick Danger

Last night’s quiz was an intimate affair, as finals week saw most of my teams absent from their regular Wednesday night post. That didn’t make it any less of a good time, though! And because apparently I hope to someday write for Cracked, here’s a list of fun things that happened!   For the answer to round 1’s bonus question, “Tuesday’s child is full of…” a person in the back yelled out, “SHIT!” and I laughed a bunch. The statue of Christ the Redeemer was referred to as Christ the Redeemer of Coupons, which also made me laugh a bunch. I found out that Spike Lee and Martin Scorsese both

Just...Just Don't
Nick Danger

Much as there are those who believe love doesn’t need a holiday (V-Day, never forget) to remind us that what we have is magical enough to transcend restraining orders, I turgidly believe that Star Wars is special enough that we don’t need a holiday to commemorate our love for all things space opera/sister kissing. Thus, my May 4th (DON’T. FUCKING. SAY IT.) was filled with exasperated sighs and annoyance. There were cinnamon bun hairdos. There were cheap Walmart costumes. There were lightsabers. Oh gawd, were there lightsabers. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Look, I’m not saying I hate Star Wars. FAR FROM IT. Actually, you know what? Ok. Let’s take ourselves a quaint little

In Which I Met TEH CUTEST PUPPY IN TEH HOLE WORLD ZOMGZ U GUISE
Nick Danger

Oh? Why hello there! You lucky duck, you got here just in time for my story! Please, have a seat there next to the others. Now, this is the story of the quiz where I met the cutest puppy in the world. It was a Wednesday night no different from any other, or so I thought. I showed up at Devil’s Advocate in high spirits, said, “It’s Wednesday, my dudes!” to my dudes, and proceeded to start in with the usual shenanigans. Round one deviated from the current events theme it normally takes on to give us a fun ride in the shoes of several of history’s cool people and my quizzers liked it and so did I. Five different teams got a perfect score on it and I was very proud

Worst. Hitler's. Birthday. Ever.
Nick Danger

Death. A blanket that eventually envelops everything living. An emotionless harvester of the fruits of the earth. A pretty sweet metal band. It is all of these things. Nothing drives that home like taking a good look at all the beloved (and not-so-beloved) celebrities and musicians that have passed from the world just this year. It seems like every third question of last night’s quiz was about someone who kicked the bucket in 2016: Doris Roberts, Alan Rickman, David Bowie, even our one true lord and savior Lemmy. And then I woke today to find that Prince has beamed up to the mothership and Chyna has gone to the great WrestleMania in the sky. I tell ya, they’re starting to drop

"This Is Why You Don't Drink During Pregnancy"
Nick Danger

Hi, welcome to blog! I hope you enjoy your stay. While you’re here, check out these eight things that totally happened last night…   I found a euro in your wallet.   John Mellencamp gave Jack and Diane the clap.   I found out that Lassie was technically a Rough Collie and Cujo was technically a huge dick.   ‘Bullshit’ turned out to be a perfectly acceptable substitute for the word ‘tchotchkes’.   David Bowie kidnapped a red-headed stepchild because they’re basically almost goblins anyways.   Matt Damon chose Gretchen Mol over
