RIP Aeris, Tho I Don't Know Why
JWarr

We had a nerdy video game question on Final Fantasy 7. The death of Aeris.  One of the first times in a major wide release video game that a character central to the plot ups and dies and you cry and it changes the narrative forever. But here's the thing- people die in video games ALL THE TIME. Hell, Cloud crapped out on me ten times just getting to that scene and I just bathe the bitch in phoenix down and I'm good to go.  Mario falls into fire, routinely, and a green mushroom just makes us pop out another one.  Pac-man is eaten by ghosts, which defies most pop culture physics on how ghosts work.   So my question is why did she have to die? And if everyone else

Link Killed His Own Girlfriend (No, Not Zelda)
JWarr

Old school Tetris for Game Boy was kinda the same Tetris that any other Tetris has ever Tetrised.  But let's talk about some other Game Boy classics that were much more challenging: - Um, Super Mario Land was damn near impossible. Not as impossible as the Lost Levels, but the play control on that thing was soooo terrible.  - Link's Awakening- there was a point to trading all that stuff, it's to learn the dance that will help you defeat the Wind Fish.  When you do, everyone you know on the island dies.  Brutal, no? - Those Mega Mans though... - Double AA batteries.  Not a game, but an integral part of owning a system that

Link got voted off his own island.

I missed y'all last week- I had to run to Peoria to help my kids win all the titles. How many titles? All of them. UT Austin, national speech champions. UT also holds the record for most naitonal Quidditch titles.  That's a true fact. Glad to see some familiar faces and some new participants. We Do The Weird Stuff, thanks for your energy and hilarity and your effusive compliments. Also thanks for humoring Sandip, because I could not entertain him until 2 o'clock in the morning because bitch I gotta sleep. Stryker learned a lot about how much they really love trivia and performed quite well for their first shot out

High Five!
Jeanne Meowclane

Nothing is more satisfying that doing a walk by a friend and getting the loudest, choicest, juiciest high five ever. You know what kind I'm talking about. The one that hurts your hand so good you can't help it but say, DAMN HELL YES!   I love those high fives. And sometimes, when I get a bad one, I backtrack, hunt down my friend and get them to redo that high five because no one likes a limp dick high five.    And for those that complain about that hurts so good high five, they can just not be friends, because what is friendship but the satisfying thwack of a great high five.   Teams!? I Put my

  Round 3 was the absolute bomb last night! I love Elizabeth Warren- she's like more agreeable and progressive Nancy Pelosi! She's so feisty and angry. I even love Scandal.  One of the best shows on TV.  I'll give you three reasons why: - Olivia Pope reminds me of Aaron Sorkin, only writing for a powerful female instead of Jeb Bartlett.  She's fast. She's witty. She's pointed. There's always a camera moving down a hallway, its great. - She has had sex with multiple people in the Oval Office! - She is literally running her own mafia and everyone is a 100% ok with that.  Her 'consulting' involves drug trading, terrorism, and straight

Look, Sending Meals to Seniors on Jupiter is Not Showing Results
St. Jimmy

I always enjoy subbing at other quizzes. It is like stepping into a parallel universe. I get to do the same stich with the same songs but a different group of quizzers. It always produces different results. This group certainly seemed to enjoy my full version of the Cool Runnings song. That’s all you can really ask for. If you get a chance you should join the High Fives quiz especially while the weather is nice.   And now for a breakdown of the quiz:   Team 5 did their best but they had a tough time hanging with the other teams and ended up in last place.

Xs and Oh My God, Sopranos!
JWarr

Here's the play by play: Round 1- No one got a perfect score, I guess you couldn't spawn enough answers. See what I did there? Round 2- One team completed the daisy chain perfectly.  More than half of you pulled the joker. Round 3- You named that film! Lots of 8s over here and one team thoroughly confused by the question about the Zodiac. Round 4- This is where scores started to shift a little bit. Apparently you need to know more

What you missed at Geek Bowl
JWarr

We have fun here every week, but Geek Bowl is special. It's a quiz on crack.  212 teams went to Seattle to watch the throw down of a life time.  Live bands doing Round 2.  Live fighters doing round 7.  Dicks. So many dicks.  Here are the top five moments you missed by not being there: 5- Trish sang kareoke with a live backup band! 4- There was a four story foot monitor of Mario Kart and winners got a book signed by Ken Jennings! Sweet! 3- Ken Jennings WAS ACTUALLY THERE. He read the tiebreaker. It involved salad dressing. 2- Awkward Family Gangbang Photos got 13th.  So proud of them! 1- Weed is legal in Seattle. Nuff

And the wrong answer goes to...
JWarr

I really mean it when I say all of you are winners, just some more so than others. You're making friends.  Eating food.  Drinking beers. Listening to me! Answering questions! But know that I don't announce winners and then take them back.  That's not a thing I do. But I do like to screw with you and make you believe your crappy answers are right when they are in fact not.  So here are the wrong answers of the game: 3rd- Hey, the Dallas Cowboys did not get under five wins last year... They did against the Giants, but still... 2nd- How many friends do people have on Facebook in Malaysia? 10,000? The average Malaysian has 10,000 friends, really?  1st-

An excellent little cadre of people tonight. All of you won some Girl Scout cookies! You also won your own shoutouts in this blog, so be grateful: Multiple Scoregasms- Best job of showing up a round in, not missing a beat, refusing to embarrass yourself with round 2, and doing well despite being desperate to bone each other. Yup. I saw it. Not Bears- you were so good at not trying to actually be a bear! Like a cute girl and a skinny dude with no body hair? Nothing bearish about that.  Trust me, I've seen some bears.

That girl you knew from high school
JWarr

So The Fez was pretty awesome. Played solo. Did well. Kicked some butt.  Beat some actual teams. And then I found out why. WE WERE TOTALLY ON THE SPEECH TEAM TOGETHER IN HIGH SCHOOL. For you not so hip nerds, "speech team" is a fancy way of saying competitive theater and debate rolled into one.  We once did a rendition of The Gin Game that was so good we made up most of it.  It was a very special day. In the 17 years since we graced the halls of Plano Sr., not a lot has changed. We're both still kinda crazy. Now its legal for us to be alcoholics.  And your competition just got a lot tougher.   Your goal tonight was to not be

A Title Offense
JWarr

So the Superbowl happened.  Not gonna lie, it was kinda uneventful. Sure there was a comeback. But the commercials were kinda lame and Lady Gaga underperformed. Meh. Our scores were more exciting: Round 1- OK, fine, you know shit about Australia. You're all great men at work. Round 2- OK, fine, you know shitty cover versions of songs. Three perfect scores.  You're all great men at work. Round 3- Well, this is where we hit some roadblocks. Three early turn-ins without any exceptional performances. Most of you waited for the extra clues (how many damn Hawkeyes do we need?) and that got a few to the perfect score. Round 4- A round

A Thrilling Threeway

There was no denying that tonight would be a battle for the ages. While Staff Infection and Oh Shiny put up some impressive scores, we wound up with a three way tie at the top of the leaderboard.  Among them we had two former champions and High Like Wynona as a first time contender for the top title.  Many a time they flirted with destiny: last week they lost the tiebreaker at the end for the win.  Would this be their night? Well it turns out, yes, yes it would.  With a 3-2-1 final score, they locked up their first ever win, and now they face an even more monumental task- defending. Timecrumb

Some of the Most Racist Things You Can Say on MLK Day
JWarr

We did indeed have a team with several variations on Why does the black girl have to come up with the MLK Name? and MLK: It Does a Body Good and Bullets Over MLK Day: A New Broadway Musical.  I mean, all in the spirit, I suppose.  So let's review the most insensitive moments that happened tonight. What did Romans learn to do with glasses back in the day? Reading? Sensible.  Wrong, but sensible.  Make fire? Correct. That's what we were going for.  "Burn slaves".  OH FUCK, REALLY? TODAY? TODAY YOU WROTE THAT ANSWER. "Oh hey, did you turn in round 5?"  Um, no.  Fuck.

Fun Facts About my Grandma
JWarr

All of these are a 100% true stories. My grandma used to play Kids Jeopardy with me on the old Commodore and let me win. She made the best Apple Pie. One time I came home stoned from a party and she commented that I looked hungry.  I tried to deny it because its 230am and I'm high and its grandma and all I wanna do is go upstairs and jack off but she insisted that I need pie. I woke up the next morning to a pie. I ate the shit out of that pie. It was so good. After the Northridge quake, my grandma didn't call to tell us she was ok.  We went to check on her and all her glass figurines were busted everywhere.  We thought she died.  Nope.
