With Jared Fogle, it's all elementary...school.
Ain't nothing like the Riehl thang!

    "What a predicament!" My favorite line from the movie Face Off, when John Travolta saw Nicholas Cage for the first time since they switched faces.  Predicament it was, last night as two of the top three teams, decided to pay tribute to Jared Fogle. 2nd and 3rd place teams, Jared will still get a foot long in prison and Jared Fogle knows how to party, respectively made a race out of it. The latter team's name worries me. We had plenty of Donald Trump references

The number 18 is how many teams we had last night and the age that Justin Bieber realized he was a douche.
Ain't nothing like the Riehl thang!

  Welcome back to all of the New Mexico State University students! 18 teams bitches! Now that is what I'm used to. We had a huge plethora of teams last night with an average of 4 people per team. They  brought their brains too! I'm so verklempt over how smart they were, coming back to school. I guess there is something to knowledge retention.  It was also Deja-Vu night as only the second tie-breaker happened since I took over again as QM. The weird part was the tallest guy in the pub was once again the champion picked to answer a silly little question about prime numbers. For the second

So we had a great quiz last night and...SQUIRREL!
Ain't nothing like the Riehl thang!

Last night felt like I jumped in the old DeLorean time machine and traveled anywhere from 2 1/2 to 4 1/2 years back in time. When I first started doing the Quizmaster thang a little over 5 years ago, I was both QM and Scoremaster. Last night my most amazing Wife, Kathy was unable to attend the Geek party, so I again, was both QM and SM. Not S&M! Before I retired about 2 1/2 years ago, one of our regular teams involved some amazing people with variations on the team name involving a cowbell. They departed for shores beyond.  Last night, they just so happened to be in town for a few days and just so

If European, make sure you flush afterwards.
Ain't nothing like the Riehl thang!

  Wednesday happened to be a few geeks light, but we broke sound barriers anyway. Well, at least I did. After an audio mishap on one side of Dublin's, I lowered the microphone from my mouth just a tad and bellowed to let two teams hear me. It all worked out in the end and I guess it worked, because those two teams were both in the top four at the end of the night. I expect to see a dozen roses from every single one of you later today! If you were perusing the pictures and happened to notice Geeks Who Drink badges for Scoremistress Kathy and myself, it's not a company wide thing now. At least

Ain't nothing like the Riehl thang!

WELCOME TO WEDNESDAY!  Sorry. I didn't mean to shout. I'm just excited about starting the quiz on Wednesday, for the first time at Dublin's Street Pub....ever! The change must have created some kind of magnetic tropical force of nature that caused Twilight Zone-like effects. First of all, it rained unlike anything I've ever seen in Las Cruces and I've been here since 1999. I  also have to admit that I was working on 2 hours sleep, which may be fine for some people, but it bit me in the rear. It wasn't too bad.

The end of an Erogenous Zone.
Ain't nothing like the Riehl thang!

It's not really the end of an erogenous zone. It's the end of an era and somehow my mind went elsewhere. The end of the era that I'm talking about, is that for the first time ever, Las Cruces, NM will be without a quiz on Tuesday. For over 5 years Geeks have been losing, winning, and cheating (or trying to) on Tuesdays at Dublin's Street Pub. We're still geeking at Dublin's. It's just on Wednesdays now. Starting July 29, 2015 at 8pm (which is a Wednesday in case you were planning on testing us later), Geeks Who Drink will do it on Hump Day! The first team name that has anything to do with

Hello again, my geekdom! First I want to tell everyone to tune into the Syfy channel Thursday, July 16, 2015 at 9pm MST. Geeks Who Drink is making the big time! The TV show will be hosted by Zachary Levi and feature one celebrity per team with geeks just like you and me! I tried to throw in a few bonus questions about the show, but everybody drew a blank.

Time is a Flat Circle
Seth

What, if some day or night a demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: "This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more; and there will be nothing new in it, but every pain and every joy and every thought and sigh and everything unutterably small or great in your life will have to return to you, all in the same succession and sequence - even this spider and this moonlight between the trees, and even this moment and I myself. The eternal hourglass of existence is turned upside down again and again, and you with it, speck of dust!"Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth

"The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies. We're made of the interiors of High School Chemistry classes.  We are the equivolent of a modest lab fee."  -Seth Bannister 2013

Other than modifying Carl Sagan quotes, I have also been hosting Geeks Who Drink since October of 2012.  I've been a geek for most of my life and its finally paying off. These days being a geek is cool and hot chicks now buy Star Wars t-shirts and wear fake glasses.  I wear real glasses and have Star Wars tattoos.  Also Arrested Development rules.

Umami is Your Daddy
Seth

It was the second to last night last evening and we had a quiz.  This is very typical of a Tuesday night.  3 teams brought their A game and the rest of you were phoning it in.  Most notably Mr. Yoshia. I recommended they name themselves Umami is Your Daddy. They obviously disagreed with me, on team name and what answers should be.  No Brians was the team that either couldn’t spell brains(and wanted to be ironic) or just a team who hated guys and girls named Brian.  Are girls named Brian?  Trump 2016: We Shall Overcomb(text edit tried to change that to ‘overcome’ as their joke

Rachel Dolezal is the New Black

It was my pen-penultimate night last evening.  It was also the NBA finals.  So you could have ignored me and just watched the game.  Many people took that option, mostly the people at the bar area.  Lebron lost, if you haven’t heard, also about 9 teams lost the quiz. Our winners I’m From Seoul, But I’m Not a Soldier dominated with 3 people on their team.  They scored 94 freaking points.  That’s like 2 points shy of perfect. Or I scored wrong.  Any way it was impressive.  Is it a Black Girl in a Blue Dress or a White Girl in a Gold Dress had the best team name and also surprised us all by leaping

So what do we have to do now? Well geeks who drink is a great start.   Tonight our 10 teams battled it out for 1st place. It was a rough start with “The man inside me” round, and who doesn’t love Tobias Funke?  We flew on through the night and of course ended the night with our random knowledge round.

Tuesday night was extra Tuesday-y.  Things were mixed up a bit when we had a Recently in Stuff for Round 1, a cover round for Round 2(by the way go check out The Baseballs, they are dope) and Round 3 wasn’t a 50/50 round.  Seth’s Cup Didn’t Test Well caused several complaints from the families that were in the house, or at least that was the excuse the Hostess used.  They also had a confusing name that I couldn’t figure out.  Was it supposed to be like a pilot for television  called “Seth’s Cup” but after some test screenings the network passed?  Was it about my jock strap and how I repeatedly tested it

Last night was a rare evening.  An evening where I gave out a rare bonus point, even though the team had no true answer.  On Round 7 you had to choose the Faux-mericans.  A word that text edit is constantly trying to change to faux-Americans.  On round 7, question number 7 we had a clip of Natalie Dormer giving her best American accent in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.  Unfortunate Circumcision decided to give us a hint at life and put “we don’t know, but she is topless in The Tudors.  If you didn’t know that then we deserve a bonus point.”  I did in fact

We had a week hiatus because of our country’s desire to drink beer on any occasion.  I’m not that upset about it.  when I wasn’t at Geeks last week I got a chance to workout and clean my house and drink one solo Bud Light Lime.  It was unfortunately the only beer in my fridge, and I ad to pay respects to my Mexican brothers.  Last night we began with an adjective association game.  I gave descriptions of two seemingly unrelated topics and you gave me the shared adjective.  I knew about the “uncanny” X-Men, but I had no idea about the creepy robots from “Uncanny”
