Kickin' Names and Changin' Tires
Vertigo Chuck

Kickin' Names and Changin' Tires Hyperres your photos today! Taking panoramas in the wonky direction to either get crazy tall ones, or you get squat ones with huge pixels. Cloud scenes captured with the second technique. And the first. The second one works better to trick your camera into thinking it has a better lens than it actually does. Wide-angle without too much fish-eye. It is really easy to say that you can see the curvature of the Earth when you have a lens that curves straight lines that aren't through a particular plane.

I'm Charles, Charlie, Chuck, whatever non-derogatory nickname you can think of for Charles. Even though I started QuizMastering at the HandleBar Tavern in December '11, I have quizzed in dozens of places for years. Our teams never quite won anything, but we always have a good time racking our brains for those little tidbits of info that GWD requires nightly.

I am definitely a geek. That picture is of me swinging from two phonebooks leafed together. Yeah, just like Mythbusters used to make. A physicist by trade, I don my mask and head out into the night partying hard and consuming various social lubricants.

Join me at my quiz and I will try to swoon you with my dulcet tones of vector calculus and Star Wars references. If you are really lucky, catch me with my Rubik's cube and I will get rid of its entropy faster than takes a grown man (or woman) to change a toilet paper roll (or paper towel roll)1.

Gordon Freeman is my hero. For the winter gift-giving season, I want a red crowbar so that I can keep it under my pillow while I sleep.

Fly Me to the Moon
Vertigo Chuck

Yay for fundraisers making $100/hr! Our high school club made that much and it is awesome! We should have been doing this all along. If you ever have a cause that you can't use Quiz for a Cause for, then, sell your wares at King Soopers. Yes, spell check, I know that soopers is spelled strangely. That is one of those isms that would make you cringe. Either that or failed logos because I don't quite get what they mean. This is their failing not mine. I still have a hard time reasoning out that the L in Staples is supposed to be a half-uncurled staple. I always end up looking at it wrongly. I can't think of any more of the visuals off the top

Death of the Gif
Vertigo Chuck

Last night was a blast. Even though it wasn't quite last night. This new blogging system is hella crazy to get used to, but I will. Don't worry. I'm getting the hang of it. Now to figure out those gifs.... There is always something cool about 24 teams coming to quiz. It brings more energy. There are better cheers and boos. There are more clever team names. Team names like White Walker Daycare and Wilderness Experience. Game of Thrones references are always welcome here. It could also be A Song of Ice and Fire references, but who is really counting with white walkers. They are in

Until the Juices Run Clear
Vertigo Chuck

Daniel helped me out tonight by passing out answer packets and visual rounds at the beginning of the night. Courtney says that he is over ambitious. I think that there is something to helping people out. This is especially true after I injured my ankle in a fishing incident involving a bear. Psych! I'm just lazy tonight? Or he just beat me to the punch (pun

The Printer Needs Paper
Vertigo Chuck

The Printer Needs Paper There's something to be said about _________. _________ is an important thing to mention at least 1/day. Maybe even twice if you are so bold. The benefits of _________ are pretty obvious, as _________ prevents certain forms of cancer. I hope you know by now that I have no idea what _________ is. It could be a superfood, but I would have no idea why talking about it could prevent cancer. I heard somewhere that smelling farts prevents certain cancers, but that could just be a news story that they want us to believe in to, well, want to smell farts like middle school students. There

Only on Days that End in 'Y'
Vertigo Chuck

Only on Days that End in 'Y' The weather. I'm glad I walked in earlier than when the sky opened up and got rid of all of the cloud in the span of about 5 minutes. I am also glad that Martha came after that. I would have hated to be caught in it. That reminds me of one time I was caught in a hailstorm while driving through the narrows. People would leap-frog from overpass to overpass for fear of hail damage. I have seen a lot of cars with hail damage, but I don't know how big the hail needs to be. The hail was pretty big that day, but I didn't get any dings or dents in my car. I've only been in one accident,

Oh, Hai Guys!
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

It was the BEST of pizzas! What a great round! Dickens would be so proud. I am always amazed by our quizzers excitment for works that we were made to read in middle school. All that hard work finally paid off. Bieber, fire of my loins was defintely the highlight of the night. Or was it the 50 shades lube? The jury is still out. Speaking of jurys, just a reminder the not every judge on T.V. is Judge Judy. Although that was a helpful startegy of a few teams that just put her name down for every answer in round 7. You got at least one question right. Scores were pretty tight tonight. We had a tie for all money-winning places. Teams Spend It Like Beckham's Wife and

When Plans Change
Vertigo Chuck

When Plans Change Type in some blog stuff. Or at least this is what I showed Alison last night about how to blog on the site. They really do make it easy, except for the fact that the Excel spreadsheet doesn't work on her computer. I'm trying to figure that one out as I type, which is why my blog is a little late today. Here is a little bit of what I wrote last night while Alison was going through her acid test.   Alison is doing a fantastic job hosting
