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.

Edward Cullen went to Jared

There is intense disappointment for all on the Dune question. I would say "don't worry, it happened at my other venue," but it is unacceptable for you not to know. If you aren't a book person, there is a trippy 80s movie with Sting, or there is a more modern couple of mini-series with other actors you would know done by Sci-Fi (when it was good, before it was SyFy, whatever that means. To me, it means an excuse for NBC-Universal to have a timeslot for WWE which is Fi, but not Sci). I'm glad I have this place to rant about my personal opinions :). In speaking of that, compendium is the word you use to describe the special words for groups of things, like murder of crows, or gaggle of geese, or giggle of goslings. I was set to look for the origin of "scads of celebrities," like in the question. It looks like a descriptor for fish, or a lot of something. I know we can think of a better word for it that can be used specifically for them. Can't think of anything at the moment. I've got something else more important on my mind.

There is an ongoing debate as to the identity of this marine mammal. I am of the opinion that it is a sea lion. First Name: Handsome, Last Name: Pants is of the belief that it is a seal. Considering Gosling's other product is something called black seal rum, the evidence is stacked against me. Fortunately, it seems like the internet doesn't know either. A Google search for seal reveals about the same pictures as sea lion. I believe there is hope for my idea. That, and sea lions are more awesome. Pax Mower also is crying seal. I will remain firm with my resolve and ask Reddit.

 

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

 

P.S. Obligatory Game of Thrones reference for the annual change of season. It is amazing seeing the exact phrase on the digital road signs as a reminder to truckers to carry chains.

P.P.S. I had something really important to say here, but I forgot it. Nope. Still forgot. Maybe something about the tribute team Pax Mower to Max Power.

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.

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.  

So, yesterday I got my iPhone6 + and I am officially cooler than you are.  I have more potential in my life and I am rocket on a comet hurdling towards success.  I have the power in one hand to cure the world of its ills and solve any problem that comes my way.  I am more attractive.  I am amazing.  I will forever be changed, for the better, and I will be a much better person.  I have the ability to search for all of life's answers and I have the tools I need to write the novel of the century.  I have, in my hand more music, information and power than any human that has existed before me!!

Wait...what's going on on facebook?  Does this thing have candy crush on it?  OH!!  Look!!  Porn!!

 

Well, yet again great power corrupts another poor soul.

Darcy's was so much fun last night.  Of course, in the first time since I started as a quizmaster I messed up a score...and of course it was my BOSS'S team...so if you never see me again...just know that the punishment for screwing up in Geeks Who Drink...is severe.  If not, I hope to see you again soon so I can make you laugh, ask you questions and swear in front of babies.  

Have a great week.

Should have Gone to the Winchester

Let me open with this picture of what I would look like as a zombie. Notice how zombie Charles would still need glasses to see. Don't you find it weird that Dr. Zombass has the most brains out of anything and the zombies aren't trying to consume his intelligence are they? I just thought that I need to plant some magnet shrooms around my classroom so that students can't use their phones. Then I realize that their phones are solid state, and the computers in the room are the only things that would be affected. Let's go with plan C.

Plan C obviously involves more zombies considering the teams that played after being at the zombie crawl downtown all day. Who knew that the undead could kill so many brain cells.  

Dyslexic Zombies Want to Eat Your Brians threw me for a loop during that first scoring recap. My brain likes to fix words as it works. This leads to hilarious mistranslations, and various ways to ruin spelling jokes. The other team to stay away from was Safety Dance who promised me that they would send me that song that I have been looking for for so long. In speaking of dancing zombies, we did have a Michael Jackson question. Tangenting back to PvZ, Michael Jackson's Thriller was the original dancing zombie crew, right before he died. I really wanted them to keep it there as an homage that he might just come back from the dead to entertain us all.

 

Speaking of entertaining, I will leave you with the artist rendition of a joke by Dyslexic Zombies.

 

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

 

P.S. Beware all, I am done with the big project!
