It's always a good quiz at Darcy's, but was my first time hosting it (ruining it?) and it was a blast!  Great teams, good beer and a super fun scorekeeper!

 

First off, Kentucky is STILL undefeated...which means, yes, we were in an irish Bar for a Notre Dame LOSS.  The world didn't end. Right?

 

Some highlights from the quiz:

-Vietnam is still trying to get the napalm smell out of the carpet.

-You get $200 for landing on "GO", not just passing it.  We checked.

-The best way to listen to Kelly Clarkson is to have her songs sung by Reba

-Star Trek 4: The Search for Whales was THE BEST STAR TREK...don't argue

-No one knows anything about Magic the Gathering

-The NFL Tuck Rule still sucks

 

Round 7 was a bloodbath. All about NBC Public Service Announcements (you know the one with the "More You Know" star?)...things did not go well.  We learned "Don't Smother Your Kids", thanks Zack Braff.

 

Bill Cosby in the "Cosby Show" was an OB/GYN. His wife in the show was an Attorney.  #Foreshadowing

 

Thanks for the great quiz!

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.

Forces to the Outside

Last night's date wasn't nearly as cool as the date from last week (I did finally get pie on Monday). I read a really cool article about x-ray lasers the other day. My mind exploded when I read it. Most lasers are "pumped" through some kind of resonance process to get the stimulated emission (laSEr). This laser uses some relativistic shenanigans to gain the coherence. I mean seriously, wiggling a stream of electrons going very close to the speed of light to emit the x-rays, then letting them travel in the same straight line so that the photons continuously collide with the electrons that make them? Crazy femtosecond pulses of molecule vaporizing power. This is why science is awesome.

This is a gray page title.

HTML is so much fun to play with on a Sunday morning. And the style is so anticlimactic when it doesn't work on the actual blog post.

I got on the bike this past week. It was nice to enjoy summer in March. Unfortunately for us, like I told Summer is Coming, after the long summer comes an even longer winter. I can't remember where I was going with this. Was it more Song of Ice and Fire references? No, but the season is going to premier here pretty soon. It definitely wasn't a complaint that the next book should come out. I think it was going to be a weather thing. Maybe something about tornado season? Maybe it could have been that Robb Stark spurned an arranged marriage for love again in the new Cinderella movie, so that might end poorly again for him. There are worse things that could happen... Maybe not, but it is a Disney movie. I don't think that the red wedding will repeat itself. Maybe this paragraph is to gloat to all of my family out east that we can dine al fresco in the middle of March with shorts on and everything. We live in a place where patios are furnished year-round. That's what makes it fun. That is also why everyone is moving here. Well, that and the pot.

 

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.

4th Wall Mayhem

We had some issues with the audio last night. I switched the sound over, as always, to "stage mic," and we got nothing out. The mixer is plugged in, and it is pumping out sound, just no sound coming through the speakers. I know that the TouchTunes is working, because I heard it playing "Whiskey in the Jar" earlier. What could it be? Power cycle the amp. No dice. Power cycle my mixer, no dice. Turn off the TouchTunes just in case it is interfering, (this involves finding the remote for said TouchTunes) no avail either. I had to think to myself to get back to basics. Checked every connection on my amp. Level bars were a-flutter, so I was good there. Unplug the cable to the wall, and plug it back in. Unplug the same cable from the wall. As I move to unplug it, the music turns on (quite loud). Just by wiggling that cable we have a connection. This is both a good thing (the quiz must go on) and a bad thing (intermittent connections are almost as bad a linking errors). When I got home after quiz, I opened the connector up, and behold! Frayed wiring that was completely disconnected from the plug on the ring (if it was the tip, we would have been up a creek. For those of you who know audio, you need to realize that I need to cheat the system a little to turn a stereo unbalanced input into a mono balanced output. Not a problem with a 5 channel mixer, but it always feels dirty when I am attaching a ¼" stereo plug into a ¼" mono jack. If you know anything about audio equipment, then you know that a "just the tip" joke applies to this situation. In better news, I broke out the ol' soldering iron and butterfly knife-like wire cutter/strippers (best present I could have ever gotten). I fixed it up really good like. There might be some issues in a few years, but that's all I need on this stuff. I should, but I don't mind opening it up again after I forgot I fixed it in the first place. That way I can complain about the manufacturer all the time even though it was most definitely me.

Scott says that my blogs are very random. I have taken to writing them during any down-time that I have when I feel like writing. Sometimes I don't feel like writing. Sometimes that is the morning after quiz. Those are not very good blogs. This way I have decent writing. It may be a couple days early about a woman carrying a desk lamp down 16th Street in the pouring rain (very strange).

I leave you now with a drawing by ??-rates of the Circle Sea. You have no idea how long it took me to find that bold pi symbol. I don't even know if it works on all browsers either. You decide. Happy ??-day! Unless you write your year first. Then you would be waiting more than 1000 years for it to happen. 3141/5/9 2:6:53. The zeroes taken out of that date and time make it look silly though.

 

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