The Hype Is Real
Nick Danger

Quizzing season is upon us, it seems! With 21 teams, I had my hands full last night as they all went head-to-head to determine who were the brainiest bunch in Tempe. Overall it was a good mix of teams, new and old, and even a few familiar faces I hadn’t seen in quite some time. Apart from the quiz itself it was a night of much hype, with several people quite vocal about their excitement for the new Guardians of the Galaxy flick and (of course) the Star Wars themed quiz next month among other things. Don’t get me wrong, though. The quiz was the entree of a deliciously-served night, and we all came back for seconds. Here’s some stuff we learned!   There

Pettin' Doggos and Writin' Bloggos
Nick Danger

Another Wednesday has Wednesday-ed on past us, and another quiz has been quizzed and I’m here to tell you alllllllll about it. We had a grand total of 21 teams packed into Devil’s Advocate and you could tell. The place was standing room only, with quizzers jammed elbow to elbow, all vying for the coveted 1st place. Just because it was a full quiz doesn’t mean I didn’t pick up anything new though. Here’s what I learned!   If you want to order a vodka cranberry and look like an asshole at the same time, all you have to do is say you want a Cape Cod.   Due to age and waning relevance, Bruce Springsteen has

Dang It, Chet!
Nick Danger

As far as quizzes go, last night’s was a doozy! Great teams were overshadowed only by greater team names and fun was had by all. Well, all but Chet but heck that guy. Chet can suck a fat one. In any case, the rest of us got to be privy to a bevy of new information. Check it out, here’s what we learned!   Michelle Obama is more popular than deep-dish pizza. Shocking, but true.   Given enough time and money, Japanese people will convert literally anything into a musical.   Unless you want to be hotly debated by an enthusiast, you should never under any circumstances refer to a trebuchet as a catapult.   And

Of Syrup and Schwifty
Nick Danger

Hello again, friends! I’m back, and I’ve survived yet another quiz! Last night’s was a bit more intimate an affair than usual, what with only 12 total teams, but it was a fun one to be sure. Let’s take a look at some of the wild and crazy things I learned!   The Canadian government will stop at nothing, and I mean nothing, to get maple syrup on the map and in every household around the world. Take your tree pus and begone, Canada!   There are still people who haven’t watched Rick and Morty. And here I didn’t think there were any Amish communities in Arizona.   Zoo Atlanta has something

Of Boxcars and Britney Spears
Nick Danger

Hi, errybody! Another Wednesday has flown by, and that means another great quiz! As always, it was packed full of vitamins, nutrients, and of course knowledge! Here’s some things I learned:   The Boxcar Children book series was indeed a real thing, and not just a fever dream I had when I was 10.   I’ll never be able to not at least mouth along with the words when a Britney Spears song comes on. I’m not even sure if I’m doing it ironically or not and that scares the hell out of me.   There is such a thing as funeral potatoes. I’m dying to try them.   Julia Roberts once dated someone

Oh, What's In A Name?
Nick Danger

Holy heck, you guys turned out this week! I had no fewer then 20 teams last night and it was wondrous. In particular, I had about a billion* different team names that were more amazing then General Tsao AND his chicken. Let’s take a look!   First off, hats off to Margaret Thatcher Would Have Never Let This Happen #mothermayi for not only taking first but also having a great team name, Talk about a bifecta!   I’d also like to point out Nordstrom Has Better Standards Than the White House for their rather politically charged but almost certainly amazing team name. Good job with your colloquial criticism guys!   Then,

Of Gaggles and Giggles
Nick Danger

Fun fact: big, packed quizzes make me a happy boy. That said, I was the happiest ma’fucker in the house when I got to Devil’s Advocate yesterday and the place was filled to the brim with quizzers. What sublime bliss! What wanton elation! What prolific joy! Y’all warmed the conkles of my heart last night, no lie. But enough about my level of happiness in the workplace, let’s talk about that quiz.   18 teams turned out, and man oh man was it a battle. No fewer than 7 teams jokered a perfect round 2 and that’s just the start. I was so sure I was going to have a tiebreaker on my hands for the placing teams but when the dust settled the

Kurt Russell Is Chris Pratt's Dad
Nick Danger

Hello again, friends! I’m back with you once again to regale you with tales of last night’s quiz. As always, it was hilariously educational. Here’s some cool things I learned last night!   Bank the sea turtle is living proof that we humans absolutely can not coexist with nature without just utterly fucking it up. Way to go, team.   Scar from the Lion King might very well have been the first boy scout.   Drive would have been so much more watchable with Ryan Reynolds in it.   I never knew Kangols were so universally celebrated. Srsly, Sam Jackson. It’s just a hat.   The

This One's For You, Bill
Nick Danger

Devil’s Advocate was livelier than usual when I rolled in last night to host the quiz, thanks in part to the baseball preseaon firing up. Sportsers rubbed elbows with geeks as the quiz kicked off in a packed house, and there was a fun mix of old quizzers and new…even a few familiar faces I hadn’t seen in a good long while. It was nice and cathartic. But, you don’t care about that. Let’s talk about that quiz!   Subjects ranged from farting court jesters to awkwardly named Bon Jovi songs, from security guard/gentleman at night Batman to Nintendo fanboyism, from gaslighting to phallic ‘naners, and from lowly Private Hudson to the president

*ahem*   Greetings, humble, hearty friend I come to you with news again Of clever quizzes, clever men Clever women too within Were tested of their brainy mettle And given scores their chance to settle That said let us put this pedalTo the motherfucking metal We quizzed of Joan of Arc, so lit We quizzed of pet name “sexy bitch” We quizzed of female judges’ silly wigs We quizzed of Jill Stein’s hate for oil digs We quizzed of cowboy vampirism We quizzed of covert ops baptism We quizzed of Bruce Willis’s “Yippee Ki-Yay!” And

Of Arizona Summers and Stone Cold Stunners
Nick Danger

February really is my favorite time of year for quizzing. The weather’s just right in Arizona, and people are finally starting to recuperate from their Christmas-induced financial woes and post-election depression and there’s a sort of general cheer in the air everywhere you go…a cheer that will soon be dashed like a wayward ship on the jagged rocks once 100˚+ temperatures hit here in a month or so. God I love living in the desert. Enough about that, though. Let’s take a look at some things I learned at last night’s quiz!   Easter Island is apparently a Chilean territory. And here I thought those big heads ran it. Huh.   More

Of Hounds and High Places
Nick Danger

Talk about a high-flying quiz spectacular! Last night’s quiz had it all: Charles Lindbergh, The Wright Bros, Amsterdam…I could go on. In any case, I’m willing to bet that most of my quizzers were higher than Jupiter’s moon Io (which I learned last night has something like 400 active volcanoes, the better to torch those dabs with, amirite?) because competition was stiff, even among those teams of regulars who normally pull into a comfortably commanding lead from the get-go (you know who you are). Overall, it made for a fun quiz to watch. Also, did I mention there was a cute pupper on the patio? I got to give him pets! What a come-up! Anyhoo, on to the

Like, Seriously. He REALLY Sucks.
Nick Danger

From what I hear, there’s some sort of Super Ball coming up this weekend, and everybody is in a fervor. The sportsers were out in droves this Wednesday as we quizzed steadfast throughout the night and, despite our differences, there was apparently one topic every person in the room agreed on: Steve Bannon totally sucks. What can I say? There’s nothing like adversity to bring people together. It’s heartwarming, really.   The quiz itself, on the other hand, was quite volatile. Not in a violent sense, mind you, but there were a lot of ups and downs. A team would be up one minute, and middle of the pack the next time I checked. Come to think it, I suppose

Like A Moth To The Flame, I Am Drawn To Bad Puns
Nick Danger

As many of you know, I regularly host a quiz on Wednesday nights at a little place called Devil’s Advocate. You may have heard of it. Y’know, ‘cause I talk about it a lot in muh little blog here. Anyhoo, I did just that last night (Hosted a quiz, not talked about it. That’s what I’m doing right now.) and it was a fabulous affair! So many teams rolled out STRONK this fine Hump Day and man did they ever kick all the butts. For a hard-as-an-octogenarian’s-Viagra-erection quiz, my little Quizamaniacs (NEW TERM. I JUST COINED IT BROTHER.) sure cut a helluva rug. There were even a few rounds that confused me a tad bit (In Search of Lost Time? Is that the Doctor

Of Quizzes and Quickscopes
Nick Danger

It’s always nice when good friends come to visit the quiz. You get to hang out a bit, catch up, and (above all) laugh at them when their stupid dumdum brains don’t work so good. That said, it was a real hoot last night when I was pleasantly surprised with the unannounced appearance of six of my closest friends and associates (read: my D&D group). I guess you could say they rolled the dice and decided to come to back to that sa-weet, sweet quiz. They always come ba- What? Hell no. I don’t feel bad for making that pun at all. As a matter of fact, pipe up again and I’ll pop you with a fresh one like your name was Hungry and my name was Dad. Don’t test me. Shush.   Come

Nu Metal and Crystal Meth, They Go Hand in Hand
Nick Danger

Week in and week out I host this quiz and, I gotta say, I’m still always learning new things. It’s a never-ending source of joy having my mind blown more often than a small-town meth dealer. Why don’t we take a look at some of the things I learned this week!   Kevin Smith has apparently at one point actually held down a respectable job.   Staind is still a band. I’d like to say I’ve listened to ‘em recently but…it’s been a while.   There’s an International Association of Volcanology and it most unfortunately does NOT have anything to do with Spock.   It’s
