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.

The Existential Definition of a Mirror

The best part about Dropbox is seeing when your collaborators are editing things. The worst part about Dropbox is that you can accidentally get rid of everything on everyone's computers. The best part of Dropbox is that it backs it up for just that emergency. The best part of this paragraph is that I know how to punctuate (eat my shorts, Charles Dickens; thank you English classes). Even though language is a living breathing thing, I don't believe there should ever be words like "selfie." Use a bigger word for such antisocial behavior. If you don't believe me, take a look at how many strangers you ask to help you take your picture. It used to be that you would meet new people by asking them to take a decent group photo of your entire group plus the scenery. With the "more modern" technique, you either have a long pole that you hold out in front of you, or you have your faces squished together with no context on where you are. In either case, you lose tons of quality. The camera on the front of your phone is still about 1MP. The camera on the back of your phone is about 8MP, generally higher, now, up to the 20s on some phones. I want one, but I'm not so sure about the Windows OS.

A new paragraph, a new topic. Every time I think about that kind of thing I get brought back to the essay format that you learn in high school. Have a good topic sentence. Have a good thesis statement. Write down a claim that supports your thesis. Explain the claim with evidence. Repeat until you have a good summary, then a good conclusion. Then you have your 5 paragraph essays. Hook, thesis, summary, and a transition goes in that first paragraph. Put those topics, claims, and explanations in the middle paragraphs with transitions. Lastly have a transition to a summary with a concluding though. Then you look at newspapers. Newspapers have one claim per paragraph. Magazines are even more amorphous than that. Blogs, don't get me started about blogs. Those are just weird because anyone can publish them on the internets.

 

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.

Delicately Stacking Chairs

Returning things to the store is both fun and not fun. Fun in the way that you get money back. Not fun in the way that you have to give something back. Also not fun in the way that you need to spend extra time to go to the store. Fun in the way that you can go shopping for something else in the process. Not fun in that you spend more money. Fun in that you get a better something. Not so fun when the fragile thing breaks on you. Of course then you need to spend even more time going to the store thrice. So help you if it is an online store. This is why digital content is so much good. That's right. Much good. That is a better phrase than "much better." Am I a hypocrite for not liking it when people misuse the English language, but not when I do? Maybe that is what it means to be a creative writer, being the one who is self-aware of mistakes in order to make a better product. At least I call myself on it. In public. And at least you can take my stories for truth. Some of it may be heresay, but I have never been in a helicopter. I've been in a hot-air balloon though. I am crazy afraid of heights, and I went up in the air in a basket supported by a large piece of nylon? Is it nylon? We even landed in the ULA complex to the south-west. I can't remember if we had a police escort or not. I definitely know we didn't have an elephant parade escort. That would just be weird.

Another week, another 100,800 breaths (that is considering one breath every 6 seconds. For those of you that are very loving, it might be 75,600. If you are Lance Armstrong, it might be 700. If you are Neil Armstrong, then it might be 0 [rest in peace spaceman]). In speaking of spacepeople, it isn't cool when they almost drown because of suit failure. I think the worst part about space travel is potentially Kessler Syndrome. I just looked it up, and it is completely not what I was thinking it was. I was thinking that it was a mental condition brought on by the loneliness and isolation of deep space. Wikipedia is saying that it is an "ablative cascade" of space junk. That reminds me of how we got our flag football team name in college. Hit the "random" button on Wikipedia until you get something good. We were starfish prime. I think a good team name would be "Ablative Cascade," but I am nerdy and enjoy such things.

I leave you now with a sketch from Starship Tuna.

 

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

Cheers to all the teams that braved the snow to come and quiz last night! Proof that a little snow and wind cannot keep true geeks from getting their quiz fix. Being relatively new to Denver, the winters here really confuse me. One day I'm out on the patio at my watering hole having a beer with my dog at me feet, the next I'm pleading with the dog to pee quickly so I can get back inside and finish watching Law & Order SVU in the comfort of my warm house. Yes, I still watch that show, judge away. They are tackling real-life issues and stereostypes, such as how cops are worng all the time.

Anyways, on to quiz. My little quizzlings, I know we are called Geeks but Klingon is not to answer to every question having to do with languages and alphabets. I can see where the confusion can happen. I'm really not one to say anything however, since I average about 4 words a night that I can't pronounce. I'm not from your country, and yes I am her legally stop asking. It was a fight until the finish between Totally Radical Extremists and Save A Tree, Eat a Beaver. In the end, eating beavers appeared to give that team super round 8 strength and they took home the top prize. 

Charles will be back next and week, so you guys will only have to listen to me slightly less.
