Jim subs "Justin" Time
Jim

Ok, so the header is a terrible play on words but whatever. I don't know y'all so judge me all you want. Anyway, Justin was sick last night so I covered CB & Potts. There were CBs and Potts. Aha! Congrats to I'm Luke and Thunder Gun Express on their respective first and second place wins. Here's what we learned: -Clint Eastwood used to be worthwhile. -Robert Downey Jr. has never been worthwhile. -Whoa, wait a second. What'd Jim just say?! Shots fired. -That's right, shots fired. Robert Downey Jr. is and always has been a trainwreck. Get over it. Ironman is terrible and y'all should

I Live My Life One Chicken Finger at a Time
JDB1138

Is there a restaurant that only serves chicken fingers? I feel like there really should be. If not, then that's my idea. Mine! Get bent, hipsters! I just came to the realization that, food-wise, chicken fingers have been the only constant in my life. It's kinda sad, but it would be sadder if I didn't put the "food-wise" qualifier in there. Nothing says "arrested development" like a nearly 35-year-old who orders food like a middle-schooler. "Yes, the lady will have the Lobster Bisque and I'll have a plate of chicken tendies with an extra side of ranch. Do you have Mountain Dew here?"

Boba Fettish
JDB1138

Ahoy, geeks! We need to have a serious talk about Boba Fett. It’s time to cut the shit! Let’s just stop pretending that he’s the greatest thing in the galaxy since light saber sliced bread. Boba Fett sucks! Seriously, what the hell has Boba Fett ever done that has earned your undying admiration and respect, nerds? Jack shit, that’s what! “Bu-bu-bu-but, Justin, he captured Han Solo and took him back to Jabba the Hutt!” Did he? Did he really? Let’s just take a look at good ol’ Boba in action, shall we? Here’s Darth Vader giving him a good

You NSFW'd My Childhood!
JDB1138

Ahoy, geeks! Some of what I’m about to post may be considered NSFW, to which I would ask, “What the fuck are you doing on this website anyway? Get back to work, A-hole!” Here’s something you might not know about me: my very first “crush” was Gadget from Chip N’ Dale’s Rescue Rangers. That’s right! CNDRR (as the cool kids called it) used to be my jam. I would rush home from school just in time to watch some Ducktales and Rangers (again, cool kids called it that). I don’t really remember a whole lot about it; Chip was dressed like Indiana Jones and Dale was dressed as Magnum P.I.

Can't Someone Else Do It?
JDB1138

No, that's not how I'm feeling about writing this blog, although that would be nice considering I'm doing this while clocked in at my day job. COME AT ME, HR! Anyway, this election season has got me thinking about a lot of parallels with pop culture. I feel like we've seen this all before. From Citizen Kane to Election to They Live to Homer’s run for Sanitation Commissioner, it’s like we’re in a never-ending cycle of political fuckery. This election is either the end of the two party system as we know it or just the

Training Day
JDB1138

Ahoy, geeks! Our fearless rookie, Aaron, took control of the majority of the proceedings last night leaving me to my own devices, which was mostly drinking, scrolling through twitter, and twiddling my thumbs. I was *this close* to downloading Pokemon Go. THIS CLOSE. I don't normally get to experience quiz from your vantage point; Is that what we really sound like? If so, yikes! Also, I don't know how you all feel, but some of the language in the quiz is PROBLEMATIC. Just give us the questions and answers, fellas. No need to make things so crass! *adjusts neckerchief and likes a Steve Doocy tweet*

Me No Talk Good
JDB1138

Ahoy, geeks! Man, I had myself a time last night, let me tell you. I found out, despite reading and understanding before the quiz, that when it came time to say it in a microphone, I totally forgot how to pronounce "emeritus." Right now, I'm saying it to myself and it totally sounds good. Emeritus. But put a microphone in my stupid face and I'll make it sound like I've never spoken the English language in my life. That's what I get for going to a for-profit college! That and thousands upon thousands of dollars of student loan debt. Everything is AWESOME! Actually, everything is not awesome. We're in a spiral of racism, violence, and death, but at least there's Pokémon!

Random Thoughts on Independence Day
JDB1138

Ahoy, geeks! I hope you all enjoyed your Independence Day. I'm pretty sure it wasn't just me, but was anyone else dragging ass at work yesterday? I'm don't think I'll ever recover from that three-day weekend. Go on without me. I'll just shuffle off this mortal coil. I had some thoughts on the 4th of July. We're all half-assing it this week at work; why should this blog be any different? -#RealTalk: do you think Joey Chestnut be shitting out whole hot dogs right now? -Do millennials celebrate DEPENDENCE DAY? ROFL!!!!! Seriously, going to school costs a billion dollars now and Social Security is a myth. -What person in their right mind thinks Liam Hemsworth

Joey, Do You Like Quizzes About Gladiators?
Matt

Hello, quizpersons of C.B. & Potts! It was good to be back in the saddle at my old stomping grounds, if only for a night. I don't think too many ears were bleeding once my volume-control muscle memory kicked in...right?   Tonight, we made sure everyone could pass the third grade again, hosted a 50/50 showdown between two former giants of European civilization, and took off for a round featuring films with scenes on big ol' jet airliners. Mile High Club, indeed!   We had teams who were down on themselves and ended up doing work, teams who showed up late but kept the spirit alive regardless, even teams who wanted to spoil 48-hour

Playing with the Boys
JDB1138

Ahoy, geeks! Allow me to introduce myself. I am just your average straight white male. I don't know what it's like to be caught driving while black. I don't know what being called a homophobic slur feels like. I also have no idea what it means to be a woman walking alone at night. These are just a few examples; I could go on, but you get the idea. I can do all these things with impunity. For me, life is basically like the volleyball scene in Top Gun. I don’t mean for this to come off as bragging. I recognize my straight white male privilege and think others should do the same, particularly those who are

Your 2016 Colorado Rockies!
JamieAnderson

Tonight I had a team called Donald Trump Chugs Cum, and I declined to read their name. I get the sentiment - I really, really do - but I feel like a name like that has some inherent homophobia/sexism to it that I just can’t get behind. What’s so bad about chugging cum? Donald Trump is terrible; chugging cum would actually be a point in his favor. Yep, I’m the feminazi fun police, and I’m coming for you. I got super distracted during rounds 4-8 because of the Rockies game. To paraphrase the immortal words of Shannon Sharpe, someone call the Denver Police Department, because they are murdering

I'm an archaeologist. The Shroud of Turin dates to ca. AD 1300, evolution is really real but more complex than you probably know, and no, I don't have a particularly strong interest in identifying the thing you dug up out of your backyard that you think is totally a Native American burial item/pirate gold/Roman pottery. And no, I don't dig up dinosaurs, but I did once read this other book, by a guy named Bakker*, and that plus repeated viewings of Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones inspired adolescent me to get into the "boot sciences" as a certain Norwegian archaeology professor calls them. Now I'm living the dream. 

 

 

 

 

* The Dinosaur Heresies, by Robert Bakker -- out of date now but an excellent read just to watch someone with ideas exploding out of their head shake up their field.

Google: Helping You Slack-off at Work Since 1998
JDB1138

Ahoy, geeks! Jobs are the worst, right? I mean, what percentage of the population has a job that they actually like? 2%... maybe? I hate those people. I hate them more than the job that I hate! Do people who love their jobs also love Mondays? Who the hell do these backwards-Garfield motherfuckers think they are anyway? They get up in the morning feeling refreshed and end the day with a sense of fulfillment. What a bunch of jerks! These are the types of people that you see on your company’s “culture video.” You know the one. It’s basically a 5 minute J.O. session on how awesome the company is (it isn’t) and includes a bunch of talking head interviews from

Nickelback Did 9/11
JDB1138

Ahoy, geeks! During last night's Round One (Golden Ages of Angst), we named three horrible things that happened in three consecutive years, and the quizzers had to name just one year out of the list. This was pretty much, like the life of a quizmaster, a list filled with sadness. Not included in this round are a few things that happened in consecutive years that still shakes me to my core to this very day. Even now, my hands tremble as I struggle to type them out; a cold sweat runs down my back. Courage, Justin. Courage. First, in 1998, Kid Rock released his 4th album Devil Without a Cause, featuring the single "Bawitdaba."

Being a Democrat Just Means You’re Constantly Deleting/Ignoring Emails from MoveOn.Org

Hey, friends! We’re friends, right? I mean, every Tuesday we hang out in the same place and, basically, have dinner and play games. We’re friends. WE’RE FRIENDS! What are you, like a size 14? Can you help me load this couch into my van? Yeah, just go ahead and get in the back. I am a Democrat and proud by default. That’s right. They say there are two things you should never discuss with company: sex and politics. Well, I say those people can go fuck themselves with a hanging chad! Wait… what? Most of the time, being a Democrat is not awesome, but I venture to guess that it is a hell of a lot better than being associated with whatever

Meet Your New Quizmaster/Pass the Pepper
JDB1138

Hi, everybody! I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself in blog form, since we’ll probably be spending quite a few Tuesdays together in the very near future. I've been a quizmaster for the past 5 1/2 years, which has allowed me to hang out in some very cool venues and meet some very cool people. It's because of this job I'm blocked by Wilmer Valderrama on Twitter. Well, that’s not entirely true. Here's what happened, a couple years ago I wrote a quiz blog titled "Wilmer Valderrama is a Prick" and then posted it to Twitter. Fes found it and summarily blocked me. So, Geeks Who Drink
