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.

Eligibility and Illegibility

I'm not an expert on irony, and I don't want to mess it up like a lot of people do, so my cop-out is saying that it is poetic. I always thought as a kid that the word "poem" came from Edgar Allen Poe's name. Silly me. Anyway, it is poetic that for the first two scoring breaks that We Had No Teammates, so We Made One and Better Late than Pregnant were right next to each other in the standings. Too bad they diverged during the final standings (by 1 point), but that's the way it is. Technically, they are right next to each other in the standings, but Excel likes to sort ties by their first column next. The Clever Team Name of the Night Award goes to Show Me Your TDs. I didn't get the joke until they told me. That is the best kind of team name. Make me subtly say something funny. Trick me into saying it. Blatant saying I will frown at, but a little effort goes a long way. I am talking to a regular team at my other venue to try to get them to be a little smarter about their team name.

Congratulations are in order for 2 in School and Frogbiters who were both sitting next to each other and sent their kids to school. One went off to college, and the others are in grade school. Imagine the fun. I don't have to imagine. I also started school this week. We will see how my circadian holds up after a few weeks. At least Saturday isn't a school night. In speaking of Saturdays, Neo-Maxi Zoomed Dweebies recommended 16 Candles, but not Pretty in Pink. I can see why, but I didn't emphasize that I was talking about films John Hughes directed. I've seen all of them besides 16 Candles, Curly Sue, and She's Having a Baby. Recommendations for any of those? Post on the facebook page (link below).

 

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

 

P.S. It is never too soon to pay homage Better Late than Pregnant. In fact it is entertaining to eulogize about your friends while they are still alive. It is a horrible prank sure, but just to dress up in funeral clothes and eulogize about themat a wake-like party and completely ignore them? Ok, that got a little sadistic, but still, tributes are a good thing. Except maybe in societies like Panem (It's bread!).

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 last week, so get over it.

The Second Letter of the Alphabet Repeated

Well, The Whirling Dervishes would have been at the baseball massac... game last night, but there was a water main break. Sad thing is that they already bought "Monster Nachos". I have no idea what those are, but their description was the opinion from an older woman who said something like, "that's a lot of nachos!" Since the game was cancelled, I figured that they would have gotten a discount on the food, but no. No discount. Not even free. You know what this week is? It is the week that Charles watches Shark Week reruns because I forgot that it was last week instead of this upcoming one. I really wanted to know about the megalodon because it has a cool name and is extremely dangerous.

The Clever Team Name of the Night goes to Quiztema Aguilera for their pun and such (much better than most of mine last night). The only thing I would change is to have another 'a' in Quiztema to be more like Quizteama. Personal preference? In speaking of poor jokes, Scrotal Eclipse of the Heart made a booing/groaning sort of sound at a joke attempt. After I told him off, he said that it was his way of saying that it was funny. I don't believe him. From then on I called them ghost noises, which was picked up by others in the bar and used against me later.

It is a little out of context of everything else, so it gets its own paragraph. Fun in Ferguson explained at the beginning of quiz how they couldn't in a million years teach teenagers like me. I left, but overheard something. I came back with a rebuttal that yes indeed you can like spreadsheets and chillenz. The two aren't mutually exclusive. In speaking about mutually exclusive, we had J2 and Half Fast move in from out of town. There was also a mom and son driving to UC San Diego from Cincinnati. Gave them a little driving advice for the mountains, and they should be fine (the mom was really worried. Like crazy worried). In speaking of mountains, Fuck Mountain is not their team name for the rumble, it is Clenched Butt Cheeks, and for that reason they need to kick out Mike, or Fumble in the Tub, for being a QM and be able to disqualify them.

This Piece of art brought to you by Scrotal Eclipse of the Heart. It serves as a helpful reminder that if you don't have a hood (active ventilation) installed, you will set your fire alarms off. I really can't remember what else this drawing had going for it.

 

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

 

P.S. Never stay late talking to Ward, I Think You Were a Little Hard on the Beaver Last Night. Their conversations went from religion v. science and glorified custom moulded turkey basters (AI).

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 last week, so get over it.

P.P.P.S. Wish me luck on work. It is new and exciting. It also starts Monday.

Inflection and the <em> Tag

I'm going to focus on the teams in this week's blog (I encourage you to follow all links to the bitter end). So many good team names, so many good conversations, so many goods... and services. First up is Jamo is my Namo. Not even they knew how to pronounce it, whether it is a soft a or a hard a so that the words match. Either way it turns up strange. The pronunciations proved to split the team in half with them pairing up with greatswords and bows to start some kind of medieval battle to the death, or the complete humiliation of forfeit. We agreed that it would be best to treat the team name like that one apples and bananas song. Moving on, we have a pair of teams with the same name just so that they can see who is better. Bees? and BEES! were such wonder twins. The interrogative had a lot more people, so it was good to see the exclamatory within 4 points. I can't remember how we started with the conversation, but it ended up with "boom goes the dynamite." Here is the promised research done by qualified internet scientists (tl;dr friends playing Mario Kart).

In speaking of stinging creatures, we had a couple of such team names as When Animals Attack and Furries Ruin Everything. I totally expected the team at the furries convention (yes that is a real thing). The furries had the furry name and when Animals attack came from some entirely different piece of thought. The Fighting Mongooses (Mongeese? Spell check seems to like the first one) had an initial obsession with the '90s. Luckily for them they got those questions by the handful tonight. They got about half of them in total from all of the rounds. Study up on your '90s for next time where we definitely won't ask the same questions again.

The Clever Team Name of the Night Award goes to We're Jalapeño Business for being... clever. There was no other clear contender.

This drawing of me eating too much birthday cake is brought to you by Pimp + Hoze. They drew another picture that I would hang up on my wall, but wouldn't post on the blog. What does it remind me of? The aliens from Dexter's Lab meets Ren and Stimpy would be about accurate enough to put a strange image in your head.

 

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

 

P.S. I did figure out how to put bars on top of letters to show a nice pronunciation guide of team names, but it turns out that Raffi makes a great example.
