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

We're Here Because We're Here Because We're Here Because There's Beer
Nick Danger

Happy 2017, errybody! I’d like to personally welcome you all into the new year, kicking and screaming though you might be. It’s ok. Change is good. Let it wash over you. There. Isn’t that nice? 2017. Anyways, the first quiz of the year was a fun one. 12 teams made it out to quiz on a chilly Wednesday night, and all were in good spirits as we steamed through a particularly juicy quiz. I mean, fart manatees, Barry the Bee stinging Macaulay Culkin to death, and a whole round about nuts? That shit is gold. You really outdid yourselves this week, quiz writers. Kudos. I’d also like to extend a kudos to 50 Shades of Danny for taking

Dumpster Fire? I Hardly Knew Her Fire!
Nick Danger

Ah, Quiz. My mistress. She can be fickle, no? At first, she lures you in, lulls you into complacency with her easy first round, but then she strikes, erases every last shred of decency you might be harboring inside you, and leaves you: a broken, shattered husk of your former self. Pointless. Friendless. Job- OK. I’m being dramatic. Still though, there were a few tough rounds this week. Let’s talk about it! Here’s some stuff I learned:   Plagiarism is technically fine, so long as the original work was yours to begin with.   I’m still not sure I believe it, but Nickelback has apparently had a #1 hit. I don’t know

Insert Generic Holiday Title Here
Nick Danger

Here we are, balls deep in the holiday season, and I couldn’t be happier. Last night I found myself surrounded, by good friends, good cheer, good quizzing, and good beer. Good times. But you don’t care about nunna that shit, do ya? Let’s talk about all the stuff I learned last night!   Every horsepower begins with ‘ho’.   ApologetiX are unequivocally my favorite band once again.   Waterworld was the Citizen Kane of the ‘90s.   I have something in common with Congress in that we both have contempt for Karl Rove! How neat is that?   According to what R6Q6

Of Raid Bosses and Feline Losses
Nick Danger

They say that one time, long, long ago, long before you or I were ever conceived of, there was a cat who was fed four minutes too late and that cat died and all the cats across the land mourned for him. His tale (tail?) has been passed down from generation to generation of felines in hopes that no owner shall ever again make the same mistake. This is why cats cry so when they are not fed right on time. And this is what it would sound like to me if, say, a very drunk person were to repeatedly yell at me to, “Play the Drake song again!” during an audio round. But this is all hypothetical talk. Let’s talk about last night’s quiz! It was a close one from the get-go, with

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
