Terminator is upon us
Katherine

The most missed question on last night’s quiz was about annual Google’s I/O conference so, let’s get educated! According to my Google searching, the big takeaway from the conference was that we are oh so close to a reality much like that in the Terminator movies.   Translation: artificial intelligence just got more intelligent … dun dun dun! Long story short - Google has created a program that plays some super complex, old-timey board game (Go) and it can beat humans. Smart humans. 19 year old Chinese world champion humans.  We’re all screwed.   On that happy note, here’s a brief recap of the

Beer – the cause of and solution to all of life’s problems
Katherine

Apologies for a slightly delayed blog post - I done locked my keys and laptop in my car - womp womp! All is well now so we’ll move on (after a beer or two, of course). Happy Craft American Beer Week! In honor of this most amazing of holidays (or something), here is an awesome quote about beer: Whoever drinks beer, he is quick to sleep; whoever sleeps long, does not sin; whoever does not sin, enters Heaven! Thus, let us drink beer! ~Martin Luther Such a wise man.   Here’s your quiz recap for this week! First place went to 0118-999-881-999-119-725…3 with perfect

What's in a (team) name?
Katherine

William Shakespeare once said, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Translating that to modern day “quiz-talk”: would a team by any other name be as victorious?   First place this week went to Better Yates than Never! who took third in our last quiz under the name of “A moment of silence (of the lambs) for Jonathan Demme: It puts the lotion on its skin." Last week, “Sugary Soda Smugglers” won the quiz. This week, they went by I was gonna eat your pizza too but I got high and, sadly, did not win (second place, instead). Come in third this week, we had We (still)

What the f*** is a truffla**ck...?
Katherine

  Seems that most of our teams this week aren’t terribly familiar with Reese Witherspoon films or Anne Hathaway films. Here are some facts that could have helped you on this week’s quiz but aren’t likely to be useful in the future. - Reese Witherspoon received her first Oscar nomination and win in 2006 for Walk the Line. She was also nominated in 2015 for Wild. - Anne Hathaway received her first Oscar nomination in 2009 for Rachel Getting Married. She won her first Oscar in 2013 for Les Miserables. - Anne Hathaway starred in Rachel Getting Married. Reese Witherspoon did not star or even appear in the movie. Now you know,

Unicorn Frappuccino = glitter in your toilet
Katherine

  Im not sure if I was more impressed by the minds that turned The Expendables into a musical or the geeks ("Fox turned into a hardcore sex channel so gradually I didn't even notice." ) that knew that the Round 7 audio clip was supposed to be Sylvester Stallone singing a musical number from the above mentioned. Both were amazing. As was that run-on sentence. But seriously, how does one turn “The Expendables” into a musical?? Mind-blowing.   In other news, Starbucks Unicorn Frappucino’s make you poop glitter. It’s a fact.   Back to the quiz. "Fox turned into a hardcore sex channel

but flattery will get you everywhere
Katherine

We meet again … another week of Geeks; full of “the regulars” (those teams that just keep coming back, for some odd reason). This week, we learned what a “butt chug” was (Google it – warning: I assume any Google images are NSFW). I’m not sure if we’d consider that a highlight or a lowlight …. But here are the legitimate highlights: …Again?! This Stupid Country. Winner! And an amazing (perfect) score in Round 2 and also a perfect score in Round 5 (visual round)! Lard Glug – perfect score in Round 1 and highest score in Round 8 (10/16 … still pretty

Colombia is in Latin America
Katherine

  To clear up a bit of confusion regarding one of the questions last night – According to Wikipedia (the most reliable of sources), John Lequizamo was born in Bogota, Colombia and moved to the U.S. when he was 4 years old. Either way, none of our teams at this quiz earned max points on the Round 8 question regarding top-grossing male Hispanic actors (born in Spain or Latin America). Earning the most points (2/3) on that question was our winning team, Happy Birthday, Leon Kowalski! Your present was lost like tears in the rain. That extra point gave them the win over 7 days without puns make one weak. Our top

MacGruber MacGyver
Katherine

This week, the visual round paid homage to MacGyver by featuring characters who only go by their last names. There should have been a bonus question asking for MacGyver’s first name – how many of you can remember it? Hint: it is not “Chad”.   Moving on, it’s now time for heckling! Not one of our teams this week earned full points (2) on the round 8 question asking for the two state capitals with football teams in the AFC South. The AFC South is made up of these 4 teams: Houston Texans – the capital of Texas is Austin Jacksonville Jaguars – the capital of Florida is Tallahassee Tennessee

Dwayne the swamp and the bathtub

Let’s start with an amazing joke in honor of this week’s winning team, Drain the Swamp, Fill the Cesspool.   Knock knock … Who’s there? Dwayne! Dwayne who? Dwayne the bathtub, I’m dwowning!

Shania Twain is Everything
Isabel

Once again, I had the privilege to be your substitute quizmaster at the fabulous Draft Station, what with Katherine's continuing computer problems... such a bummer.  However, I had an absolute blast MCing for y'all tonight! Tonight was a bit Beauty & the Beast themed, a bit Shania Twain themed. Works for me. Did you guys see Beauty in the Beast? Typical Disney schlock but surprisingly tolerable, especially for those Downton Abbey fans (Dan Stevens in a motion capture suit, anyone?). It was certainly better than Cinderella (barf). Our quiz tonight progressed swimmingly, with you guys killing a number of rounds, especially the visual. You guys really know your live action

Consult the Scumdex
Isabel

Hi y'all, Isabel here, filling in for Katherine as her computer is on the fritz. It was a great pleasure being at Draft Station this evening, snarfing down some tasty pizza and brews and looking at all you fine people. And so many great people there were tonight! We had a few in-and-outs, but a final count of 7 teams made for a lively night... with a tie-breaker to cap it all off! Our first round had a bunch of comic book hero references, including "Wolverine" ... which reminds me, did anyone else see Logan this past week? Jeez, it was depressing AF. I guess once you place a comic book movie in the future you can do whatever you want. (And according to the

Womp womp
Katherine

That's the sound of my computer slowly dying whilst I hold the screen in one hand and type with the other. FYI, I can't really see this blog post well (thanks to a marginally functional screen). Therefor, it will be short and, possibly, containing typos. Huzzah! Congrats to Willem Dafoe's penis for this week's win! And, in spite of their ailment, Case of the Mondays took home second. Everyone else deserves 50 thumbs up for participating and having fun. I shall end this lamest blog post ever and run my computer to the Emergency Room for, hopefully, a quick repair. TTFN!

Offs Lout Dike (aka Afsluitdijk)
Katherine

This week, in a show of support for Warren Beatty, your quiz host (me) awarded first place to the wrong team – womp womp. #GeeksOrTheOscars But it was definitely intentional. Many people agree with me. An extremely credible source said that Dick Tracy loved it. #fakenews   The true winner of the quiz is If you thought you won the Best Picture Oscar, you're in La La Land. Second place goes to If you think you're winning this quiz, you're in La La Land!

On this day ...
Katherine

Another Monday quiz shared with a holiday of sorts. I feel pretty strongly that, if presents aren’t given out, then it’s not actually a holiday. So, instead of talking about “Presidents’ Day” in this blog, I’ll tell you some fun and random facts about February 20th. - February 20th is the 51st day of the year and is most likely to fall on a Monday, Wednesday, or Saturday. - On Feb. 20th, 1935, Caroline Mikkelsen became the first woman to step foot in Antartica. - Famous (infamous?) people born on Feb. 20th – Rihanna, Kurt Cobain, Cindy Crawford, Charles Barkley,

More terrible poetry!
Katherine

Roses are redViolets are blueGeeks quizzes are amazing Just like all of you! This pre-Valentine’s Day quiz was, as always, super fun. So many geeks showed their love for Geeks by braving the cold, snowy/rainy weather to test their trivia skills. There were winners - The leprechaun tells me to burn things, losers - everyone else. (Remember, if you’re not first, you’re last), and hilarious/ridiculous answers. Question 5 in Round 6 (asking for the Australian term for “fanny pack”) provided the best answers of the quiz: - Wilcram (apparently
