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.

Driving with Mittens

So I have some good news and some bad news. Good news: It is snowing. Bad news: It is really icy on the roads. Good news: I went to see Neil DeGrasse Tyson Friday night (awesome!). Bad news: I misplaced all my notes from quiz last night, so the photos might have incorrect captions. Please correct me in the comments or on the facebook. I will do my best to remember everyone. So Neil Tyson is awesome. I went to a 3 hour lecture and still wanted more. He brought up a few good arguments mainly toward a certain team Pluto is a Planet Dammit!. A lot of the surface of Pluto is ice. If it were on our orbital path, it would have a tail. "No self-respecting planet has a tail." It makes me want to petition the Science Channel to be on basic cable. Hopefully it won't be taken over by WWE like the Science Fiction channel was. If it takes product placement to get there, I watched Chuck; I'm OK with product placement.

As I eat this grape airhead, I realize that the packaging has a happy looking peanut with a line through it signifying that no happy peanuts were harmed in the making of this product, nor is there any kind of peanut residue on this tasty snack. Seriously happy looking peanut that makes the symbol seem to say, "Say no to happy peanuts." Even better, the text around the edge says "Made in a facility that does not process nuts." I wonder how many people it takes to change the text because peanuts are legumes... Will the world never learn?

I leave you now with some artwork from Jehovah's Witness Protection. It describes itself.

The Clever Team Name of the Night Award goes to I'm Not a Gynecologist, but I'll Have a Look for being so forward and causing a nice big laugh from the crowd. I don't go with the crowd favorite often... actually I do, which is sad.

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

 

P.S. And then there is this. And this. And this.

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.

Hold the Phone, or Put the Phone on Hold

The strange thing about blogging is that you can't copy the title text from the web page. I find that really strange and slightly disturbing. You can click on it though, so that is a thing. I wonder how they do that? Render the text before the web page renders? Insane. Do you ever feel like English is working against you? It is improper, but colloquially acceptable to put two "that"s together. The editor wants web page to be two words, so the dude abides. Sometimes it feels like it needs to be one word. Sometimes grey is grey, and sometimes grey is gray. It all depends on the amount of blue in it. Sometimes you need to add prefixes or suffixes to words to make new ones. I heard that literal literally doesn't mean literal anymore. It can mean literal or figurative. I do not condone that. Wow, it wants "any more" to be two words too? You know what I mean though right? Language is fluid, but "selfie" should not join the club.

I run numbers for all of my quizzes, and I can tell you that it is strange that 23 teams has a huge spike. Can't you have 24 teams to make the bell-curve nicer? There are also intense dips at 11 and 13. Strange stuff be happening. This means I need more quizzes. Larger sample size, smaller standard deviation. I need to separate it by venue though (separate vs. separate). Otherwise it isn't the best of statistical analysis. I am looking at the intersection of many different bell curves. I also need a graph of average score. It will happen as soon as I get a round toit. I can make those now! Round toits for everyone! Maybe next week I will put those graphs on the blog.

 

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

 

P.S. And then there is this. And this. And this.

Bradford ()

A veritable journeyman, Bradford has lived in Oakland, Pittsburgh, Austin, LA, Boston and Denver (Tuscon was a mistake, not to be made, or mentioned again).  His nerd knowledge resides primarily in the "musical arts" after ten years on-air in radio (101X/KFMA) and graduating from music school (Berklee) in Boston.  Putting a die-hard Red Sox fan in an Irish Pub would SEEM like a good idea but placing same said fan within spitting distance to Coors Field??  Yeah, we'll see how well that goes over.  

Never, EVER count out Max Power.  I made that mistake when after 6 rounds they were safely in the middle of the pack.  Yeah, I made fun of them to their FACE and needled them.  Sometimes a team needs a little push.  And I AM that push.  Apparently I am because they went on to rack up big numbers on round 7 and 8 win the whole thing.  Yeah, I'm that good.  Congrats guys.

Also, it seems that all of that marketing money towards women is doing no good at all.  The boys apparently got more of the lady parts questions than the ones with the lady parts.  Proving yet again that no amount of money trumps boys fascinations with boobies and cookies.  The never-ending and oft mysterious lady plumbing that you ladies take for granted, we boys desperately focus on 23 out of 24 hours a day.  It's either that or advertisers should just stop marketing towards women and just market to fucking people.  There is a larger concept at work here but you get my point.

Darcy's, I have subbed for you so many times int he past and I will miss you.  Be nice to Chuckie because he loves you.  Chuckles is a good guy.  Charlie the Chocolate Wonderboy, thank you for letting me sit in for you...you are a champion in my book.  

Have a great week you guys and don't forget that no matter how strange or difficult the world becomes....no sex with penguins...ever.
