Charles (Vertigo Chuck)

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.

Jellied Cranberry Sauce

You know it is Thanksgiving time when there are turkeys at restaurants. Darcy's staff likes to leave notes in the kitchen area about various seasonal products. The note on the door is "Turkeys are here!" At least I think I have that quote right. Let's just call it parenthetical. In speaking of getting quotes right, I have been interested in The Newsroom recently. I had no idea I would like it until the credits list Aaron Sorkin as an executive producer. I was a little disappointed with the camera shots not going backward through a maze of hallways, but the room itself is pretty free-form. Hurray for smartly-written dramadies. Yes, I just used that word.

In speaking of turkeys, Tryptophanning Balls makes a reference to that elusive amino acid that is only made up of a singular combination of 3 nucleotides. If you don't believe me, check out this table. I didn't even need to resort to Wikipedia for that one. This table is from Oxford, so you know it's good. Enjoy their sketch of a turkey with its legal MJ.

Honorable mention goes to It's Gregg's Birthday because he spent his birthday with us. I was tempted to ask for the helium out of his balloon, but it would have been inappropriate. I have done the quiz with helium before. It gets a little old, but it is worth it. You get that slight hypoxia to go with it and all of the jokes become funnier. I had a deep conversation with Fat Kids Always Win at See-Saw just because I never thought of it as an activity that you can "win". The talking points then moved to the removal of pea-gravel at school playgrounds, the revocation of tether ball poles, and the shorter height of swing sets. We had it good back then.

I will end the blog with another original from Tryptophanning Balls. I think this is the second time that I have been a cat.

 

See you all next week! Same Bat time, same Bat place.

 

P.S. You need to watch all of this video. It might be a little late to be promoting this bandwagon, but it is... interesting. I like the skyline at the beginning.

P.P.S. Hot tip from XKCD, put an "except in bed" after fortune cookie phrases.

P.P.P.S. Check out and like the facebook page that you can find here. I give away an extra round theme every afternoon before quiz so you won't be completely surprised at the content. I am also recycling the PPS from the past few months, so get over it.

Taken to School

Tonight we had a fantastic Quiz for a Cause with the Rise School in Denver. This school provides an inclusive classroom for students with special needs. Without the teach-speak, it means that all varieties of students are put in a classroom to foster togetherness in a positive environment. I just gave you the link. You should check it out. They are great people. As with any great organization, they are always looking for volunteers too, so check them out. We ended up raising $390 for them last evening. That is a lot of crayons (do pre-schoolers still use crayons?).

Here is a picture of our donation pot winners, Schizophrenic Vagina Bang Bang with the Rise School core, including Director Meghan. Bang Bang is a little embarrassed about their team name being plastered everywhere for their support, but it is the support that matters, and we want to thank all of you for giving so much! Special thanks goes to Kendall (sp?) for helping manage the donations and Steve (I forgot to write down your name) for helping me manage our collective students last night. Teachers use those red pens like a boss (bosses?).

During one of the scoring recaps, Gloryhole to Nowhere starts to make a sound like they were playing spoons. In fact they were playing rulers in that fashion. That was pretty sweet! Then they had the gall to rip on my version of "Whiskey in the Jar," and I did tell them that I didn't see them clapping along. If you haven't experienced "Whiskey in the Jar" in an Irish setting, then you are missing out on a gateway drinking song. For some reason I have in my notes that Fric + Frak talked to me about "sknonono," whatever that means. The question of the night seemed to revolve around everyone asking if Baby Charlie is mine. No. He is the spawn of Gary and Cassidy from Charles Doing Donuts. I was intentionally making the car slip so see how slick the roads were in a controlled environment. Others in the car just objected at the time.

 

See you all next week! Same Bat time, same Bat place.

Something about Meeting Old Friends

It was nice to see a team from my first venue. It is nice to rediscover lost things, even if these things are people. The team-quizmaster dynamic is a complex one. So complex I don't know if anyone understands it. I enjoy complex. It is complex systems that lead to chaos. Chaos is this strange thing that has its own patterns to it, weirdly enough. Strange attractors and feigenbaum numbers make the world go around. Brownian motion is nothing like bowel movements. Analytics are nothing compared to the power of discretized solutions to iterative situations. I love physics.

Writer's block is horrible thing when you are trying to finish a blog right before the deadline. This means you can write a paragraph about writer's block. It usually jogs my mind to think about different things like the fact that I haven't set my clocks back an hour yet so it feels like I am perpetually late. Also, one of my clocks is missing a battery. It has been stuck at 3:40:46 for the past year or so. It is a sorcerer's apprentice clock that totally stirs up feelings of being able to mess up. Then there is that movie that involves tesla coils. These coils are the best, and I finally understand how it works. This means I want a parametric array too. Ultrasonics causing audible noise in a powerful directional speaker? Awesome tech. I love physics.

 

See you all next week! Same Bat time, same Bat place.
