Irrational Fears
Rachel

I like to think about the way we are as kids vs. the idiosyncrasies we develop as we become adults that make us who they are.  For example, when I was a kid, I used to deal with stressful situations by escaping into books. As an adult, I escape into a glass or two of tequila... or whiskey... or vodka.   I think our adapting has to do with survival.  As a kid, you're not in charge of your own survival and, y'know, your brain is barely capable of assessing situations for what they are anyway.  So we do hella stupid things.  I remember being 10 and completely defying my mom's orders to stay out of the woods.  The woods had ample cover for forts and a super

Check the Comments
Chris

Amazon reviews will never cease to amaze me. In related, I may have found a new favorite subreddit. I've always know about the gems, like the 50k dollar one and the five pound bags of sugar-free gummy bears. I'm working on a theory that somehow I got fed those at day care and that's why gummy anything hasn't really ever done anything for me, but I digress. There are entire websites dedicated to the compilation of these compilations, and a Buzzfeed list populated with other Buzzfeed lists on the subject. If you get some free time, I encourage that you go to check them out. Coming up in Geeks Who Drink Theme Quiz news, The Answers are Not What They Seem: A

This Time I Try to Defend Episode I
Chris

To be perfectly clear, at no point am I arguing that Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace is a good movie. I'm saying that I personally don't hate it, and that it's at least a little bit less bad than Attack of the Clones. Let's start at the most obvious place possible, the only thing people would murder before Hitler, Jar-Jar Binks. That name has a sort of Voldemort feeling where you really just don't want to say it. Episode one had potential, right up until that thing showed up. My counter point is that it's in Episode two as well, so it's not as if there's any relief. Plus, it's also easier to ignore one painful character than multiple. Now instead of Liam Neeson being a terrible jedi,

Bat Filled Hole
Chris

Surprisingly 'bat filled hole' was not the darkest thing about the quiz last night. That award goes to round six, Hey God, Would You Mind Sorting These People Out? I, for one, am going straight to the special hell for laughing at that title. Other things that are surprisingly dark are the inside of a car in the middle of the afternoon after two inches of snow just happen to decide to fall. I maybe have some very recent personal experience with that last one. I should really not have seen surprised, but in my defense the only times I scrap snow off of my car is at too damn early in the morning when it's dark out so I guess I figured that since it was light out then the inside of the car should

Other People's Plagues
Chris

Zika. I miss when the biggest thing I had to worry about was a rogue mosquito finding it's way north, or when people were losing their collective shit over H1N1, aka Swine Flu, aka the Bacon Lung. Someone missed a golden opportunity when they passed on calling it Bacon Lung. With the right branding, it could have gone down in history as the greatest pandemic of all time. You got a week long hall pass that you only had to spend one or two days of actually feeling sick. That's speaking from personal experience. Hell, it couldn't even knock off as many people as the seasonal flu does each year so it wasn't particularity dangerous either. Just try it out the next time you get a chance, because

Speaking of Quiz
Chris

Last weekend was a strange one, but not in the a mother fucking tree fell through mother fucking living room window kind of way. It was more of a something was missing kind of way. I'm pretty sure that it was the cold emptiness of the off season creeping in. Without football, I think I did something crazy like go outside and make a fool of myself at the driving range. I can't be one hundred percent on that though, it was more of an out of body (or more precisely, an off of couch) experience than anything else. It must have been a dream, because I can't remember whiffing a single ball, which has never happened before

Not My Winter Storm
Chris

Is it just me, or did that snow sneak up on anyone else? I like to think I watch the news, or at least check a weather app from time to time, but I was not expecting it to start snowing in the early afternoon on Sunday. Lowland snow is contractually obligated to fall between the hours of 3am and 10am around these parts, but I guess that means nothing in this day and age (BECAUSE OF GOD-EMPEROR TRUMP YOU SEE). I can't think of the last time it was actively snowing for over 12 continuous hours in the greater Seattle area. This is about the only situation that I can think of where I can honestly be happy to claim that I spent three winters in Minnesota. It wasn't easy, it wasn't pretty, and I'm

A Most Wonderful Time for a Beer
Chris

I'm so glad that our humble bar is dimly lit, because Saturday night was Washington Beer Lovers' Belgian Fest. And if you know anything about a Belgian's reputation, you know that they tend to clock in at over 8% ABV ,which makes for a hell of a night. It also leads to multi-day hangover, which is why I'm thrilled that it's nice and dark in here. Don't take any pity on me, I knew what I was signing up for and every tasty 12% Belgian Quad has been worth the as of the time of writing thirty hour hangover. It wasn't all big 12% quads, though. Elliot Bay has a red sour ale that's aged in Bordeaux barrels. Holy hell that was good! There was another fancy-ass trippel that was aged in champagne barrels

Move along, Montazuma. Move along.
Chris

Chipotle gets a bad rap. They get one little E. Coli outbreak and everything goes to hell. As it turns out, shipping, storing, preparing, and serving ready to eat food is a complicated matter and where the majority of food born illnesses come from. But what I really want to know is how someone actually came to the conclusion that there was E. Coli in the burrito instead of just Chipotle. When you look at the symptoms for E. Coli, the first two are stomach cramping and diarrhea. If you ask me, those two are par for the course when you ingest literal pounds of Mexican food, much less Mexican fast food. I'd be surprised if there wasn't a disclaimer on the back of the receipt somewhere that warns

Denial Can Only Get You So Far

Well this is it, we're really going through with this. This will be the final blog of the world as we know it. By this time next week, God Emperor Trump, the first of his name, King of 'Murica and the First White Men, Lord of the 50 Kingdoms, and Protector of the Realm, will be the president of these here United States. I could ask how the cock this happened, but I don't think there's an answer out there that would make this an easier pill to swallow. Frankly, this feels more like an over-sized suppository than anything else. And what about my blog?

It's as Easy as 1, 1, 2, 3!
Chris

Math never disappoints me. Numbers are great and that's because they all know how to sit down, shut up, and follow the rules. So the exact opposite of the English language. Case in point, the first question of the Quizdoku round was written to use language to distract you from the numbers. And then there's Euler's number, e. Who doesn't love a number that's at the heart of compound interest? I'll go ahead and rank e in my top three favorite constants, right behind pi and Avogadro's number. Those top spots are reserved for numbers that have days attached to them. Plus, you can celebrate Mol Day twice a year, either on 6/02 or 10/23, which is pretty nifty.  And yes, I'm using math to hide

The End is Nigh.
Chris

2016 is finally almost fucking over, and it will be remembered for 2 things; the rise of exclusively streaming television and death. You could argue that there a third, blatantly obvious thing I'm omitting, but I think that the demise of a country by its own voting idiots counts as a kind of death, but I digress. We lost some good ones this year (looking at you, Alan Rickman), but we finally got season three of Bojack Horseman which is nice. It's also a damn good show that will make you fall in love with the goofy animals just before the proverbial knife is twisted in your chest leaving you in emotional and speechless on the couch. Not that I'm speaking from experience or anything.   At

Why Does Ohio Have So Many Astronauts?
Chris

A disproportionately high number of astronauts come from Ohio. The real question is why? What is so bad about that state that makes its residents feel like they have to leave the planet just to get a safe distance away? The obvious answer is Cleveland, where you can by a house for the price of a VCR. I've been told that Cincinnati is even worse, but my source on that is a pretty disgruntled former manager, so take that as you will. It could also have something to do with the Amish living there. One theory is that after being stuck behind those damn single-horse buggies, our spacemen felt the ultimate need for speed... re-entry. At 17,500 miles per hour aka mach twenty-fucking-five these guys

Ain't That Some Bull

You know exactly what I'm talking about and it's youtuber Shittyflute. There is an entire laundry list of things about those songs that I could angrily rant about, but I don't really feel like giving myself an aneurysm so I'll stick to just a couple of key points. First off, after doing a little research it turns out that somehow, someway Shittyflute has not covered Europe's Final Countdown. How was this not the first song that he covered?! I understand that it's what everyone would expect, but Final Countdown is just the right amount of popular, bad, and one-hit wonder to make it the perfect shitty cover. Secondly, if you look this guy up on you tube, you'll see that he poorly photoshops
