The Cheesiest!
Nick Danger

It was another fun-filled evening at Devil’s Advocate last night, as we all gathered in groups of 6 for warmth. Hey, don’t give me that look! It gets mighty chilly in the desert at night. Of course, we did get some quizzing done while we were at it, or we wouldn’t be talking now would we? Let’s get down to brass tacks.   We started the evening with a round on one of my very favorite things in the world: mac ‘n’ cheese! Dat delicious, noodly goodness. Judging by the scores I saw, I’m not alone in my cheesy lust either. Y’all know your pasta! The night rolled on in high spirits after that, with much rejoicing and answering

Happy Holidays From Havana
Nick Danger

Happy December, everybody! It’s finally Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa season and time to start switching from pumpkin porters to eggnog as we commence to spreading yule tide (and of course the rich and varied other denominational kinds of) holiday cheer! I heckin’ love the holidays, and not just because I get tons of free food and cool stuff from my family and friends and people who aren’t looking. I love the festivity that just seems to light up the very air. The smells. The mirth. The tinsel. For a small window of time each year we’re all able to forget we’re all shitty, petty little people with shitty, petty little lives for

Of Tuna, Tacos, and Trumps
Nick Danger

I hope you guys are glad to have me back, because it is great to be back! Now that all that bases balling is temporarily done, it’s time to buckle down and get some serious quizzin’ done. Last night’s was certainly a fun one, with 15 teams venturing out to test the quizzy waters and you better believe I’m about to tell you all about it. Here’s some heckin’ sweet stuff that we learned:   There are apparently people out there who think tuna salad is delicious. These people are wrong and you should shun them for their awful taste in gross fish. Ew.   Nate Dogg is not Snoop Dogg. It doesn’t seem like something

Nothing Rhymes With "Donald Trump Is Actually 100 Radioactive Rats In A Shoddy Man Suit"
Nick Danger

Well here we are, America: stuck between a dishonest, soulless rock and a lying, orange hard place we chose the latter rather than the former when we should have just busted out the sledgehammer and smashed them both to bitsies. (The sledge in this analogy is Vermin Supreme whom, quite frankly, if you didn’t cast a ballot for your vote was wasted. Ponies and zombie preparedness, people. Jeez.) In any case, last night’s quiz was, much like every bowel movement I’ve ever had, Trump-themed. To commemorate the occasion, here is a list of things that are the same color as our new president-to-be! Orange you excited?   Cuties   The

How do you describe a show like Supernatural
Ramblin' Jan

  Supernatural is one of those shows that is so hard to recommend to people. It isn't that I'm afraid people won't like it or that they'll judge me (I don't really care). It's that it defies description. I mean, really. Try to describe it to your mom. The best I could do is, "That show with the pretty men in it." I mean, it takes a solid ten minutes to explain how they were even able to set up all the meta-humor. Know what isn't hard to explain, though? The music. Honestly, I'd just play music from the show if you're trying to convince someone to watch it. Anyone with any taste in music will probably be sold on it. Hosting was, of course, a blast. Thanks

"Ramblin" once referred to my attempt at a nomadic lifestyle. Now it just means I talk a lot.

Of Homers, Harks, and Horks
Nick Danger

I think I once read somewhere (the internet, like, 5 minutes ago) that the last time the Cubs won a World Series, the Ottoman Empire still existed and you know what? I think that’s kind of neat. Know what I don’t think is kind of neat? The Cubs. But hey- you didn’t come here to experience an onslaught of insensitivity about a sport that is so boring I’d rather gouge my eyeballs out of my own goddamned head with a pair of cleats than watch it. I know sportsers can sometimes be a rather thinned-skinned people so I’ll try and take the high road and talk about something else a bit less polarizing: politics! How ‘bout that debate,

Of Harambe, Hesse, and Halloween
Nick Danger

So we’re getting on into October and it’s about time to get heckin’ spooky. I’ve got my costume all picked out (gorilla suit + bat wings, horns, devil tail, and trident = Harambeelzebub) and my decorations up (like they’re not up year-round) and gosh, I think I am just as ready for Halloween as any one skeleton piloting a meat suit can be. To celebrate the occasion I hosted a quiz last night and, let me tell ya, it was a doozie! Here’s some stuff I learned:   Abe Lincoln (secret identity of superhero The Great Emancipator) once taught his home to do basic math. Seriously. A house divided.   I still

Of Bases, Balls, and Broadway
Nick Danger

Hello again, my faithful followers! We had ourselves another great quiz last night, didn’t we? There was a corporate party, a shut-out baseball game, and a waitress quit...what a night! In case you missed it, here’s some shit we learned:   Kim Kardashian has now officially been robbed for more money than I will ever make.   Gangnam Style does not translate well to piano. Or to anything, really.   There was apparently such a thing as a Triangle Shirtwaist fire, and it happened in 1911, and I still have no fucking clue what it was but it sounds like an allegory for my life.   There are at least eight

Self-Love Is Sublime
Nick Danger

As I sit here trying to think of how I’m going to spin this week’s blog to make last night’s quiz look badass (spoilers: it was), my roommate is showing me his friend’s band that he swears I have to hear. Fun fact: when I went to type the word ‘band’ I accidentally typed bad and then I almost left it because HOLY FUCK these guys suck harder than a secret prototype Dyson. It’s as if Thursday was a shitty radio rock band and then was somehow worse than that. It’s like a state fair fucked a suicide. I can SEE the barbed wire tattoos on their arms and I’ve never even met them. That’s what I’m dealing with right now. So you can see

Forget Jon Bernthal, I'm The Real Pun-isher
Nick Danger

  If there’s one thing that makes my heart grow three sizes in one night, it’s a full quiz. And hoo boy was it ever a packed house last night! Nineteen teams rolled out to Devil’s Advocate last night, and nineteen teams brought their A-game. They were on point. Y’know, like…points. It was a high-scoring game is what I’m saying. Here, just, just…just never mind. Check it out, we learned:   Ray Guy should have died, not Steve Irwin.   Somebody, somewhere fucked up real hard. Only excuse I can think of as to why Motörhead isn’t in the Rock ‘n’ Roll

In the Pursuit of Knowledge
Nick Danger

Let me tell ya, last night’s quiz was a learning experience. I learned about life. I learned about love. It was truly memorable. And not even in that “you had to be there” sort of sense. Here’s some real-world, applicable-ass shit I learned last night:   There’s a thing called “Girls” and a person named Lena Dunham created it. Holy shit.   There’s a very real (albeit tenuous) thread between Prince and Toby Keith. This, of course, only serves to bind them both closer the Kevin Bacon.   Mac from “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia” has a first name. And it isn’t

Apparently Not Wilder Than Death Itself
Nick Danger

Hello again, adoring blog fans! How’ve ya been? That’s fascinating! Well, in return for that wonderful borefest I’m sure you just dropped on me, I’m going to tell you about some of the wiggity-wiggity-wild and zany things I learned at this week’s quiz!   JFK’s mom can be easily compared to an old map.   Even just a smidgeon of a snippet of a Montel Jordan song can bring out the inner freak in each and every one of us.   People call what Tom Cruise does “acting”. I’m pretty sure that he just does what he himself would do in any given situation in any movie that he stars in.   Jesse

Butterbeer? I Never Touched Her Beer!
Nick Danger

So, yesterday’s quiz was my very first time hosting a themed quiz. That might not seem like that big of a deal, but playing in a Star Wars themed quiz 2 years ago is where Geeks Who Drink and I first met, so for me it’s an anniversary of sorts. I feel as though I have now become a man. Come full circle. The apprentice becomes the master. Been promoted to middle management. Maybe not Springsteen, but a boss in my own way. And my first act as Super Mega Boss In My Own Head™ is to tell you about this Harry Potter quiz. Let’s go!   24 teams graced Devil’s Advocate with their presence yesterday evening, and 24 teams kicked major ass. There were

Viper? I Hardly Knew 'Er!
Nick Danger

What can I say about last night’s quiz that hasn’t already been said about IEDs? It was bomb AF and nobody saw it coming! Round 1 provided me the perfect opportunity to test the waters with my new fake cockney accent I’d been dying to try. Popular opinion is it’s trash, turns out. Eh, you can’t be good at everything I guess. Round 2’s mash-ups were a fun break from the usual thoroughfare as well, and when you’ve been in the saddle as long as I have that’s a welcome sight indeed. Personally though, I thought round 3 stunk. I mean, pee-YEW. Y’know, because it was a round about smelly stuff. *ahem* Moving on. The honest-to-goodness

Of Titles, Tales, and Tiebreakers
Nick Danger

I gotta tell ya, it’s always a great time at Devil’s Advocate on quiz night. Last night’s was a real barn-burner if I’ve ever seen one. We had a 3-way tie for 3rd, and a 2-way tie for 1st! Much as the scat of a common ground squirrel, that shit was nuts...but we’ll get to that later. Firstly, here’s what I learned last night!   There are actually 8 different facts about Dwight D. Eisenhower! Who knew?   Katy Perry’s not the only person who kissed a girl.   There’s apparently at least one country the U.S. hasn’t fought a war against. Huh.   I
