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.

Better than Lava from Space

I was asked last night about what movie I reference the most. I was able to pull off a few that I forgot to write down, so that is one of those things I need my phone to keep track of for me. It is a little scary, but I am thinking about getting a Windows phone. In speaking of Windows, Windows 10 is in alpha. I really want to know where 9 went. is 8.1 the new 9? The new 9 can also be related to the new Gemini astronauts back in the 60s. In speaking of astronauts, I am proud of how many people remember Christa McAuliffe, even though it was Sally Ride that was the answer. I am refraining from making any other comments about it because we already had a very depressing round last night. Traditionally depressing.

There were 3 birthdays in the room last night. Sammi (from It's My Birthday, and I'll Quiz if I Want To), Scott (from Slurpees + Herpes: A Great Date), and someone in the party of the person that insisted on shouting out answers. Sammi made me wear a tiara as represented in this artist's interpretation of the evening.

Photographic evidence of this event is rare, but it still exists. For now, all you have is this quick sketch. There was another sketch on a doily, but they spelled doily wrong, so it isn't up here. Also, I'm away from my scanner, if you can't tell from the color-adjusted photograph of this sketch. It doesn't do the picture justice.

 

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

 

P.S. Why so many birthdays? What is 9 months ago? Late January? Early February? Can't link anything to it.

P.P.S. BTW Lifetime Presents Michael Phelps and Amanda Bynes in "Probation Passion" is way too long of a team name, but it is worth it.

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 weeks, so get over it.

If it Aint Broke, Make it Better

This is the place where I am going to talk about mammals producing caviar. According to google, "The beluga whale or white whale is an Arctic and sub-Arctic cetacean. It is .... according to Wikipedia." Back in college, we called Google the oracle, and wikipedia the source of all knowledge. Google is still the oracle because you need to interpret whatever it gives you, just in case it is wrong. I would call Reddit the source of all knowledge now because I'm sure everything is there, just not organized beyond /r. I'm not saying that Wikipedia is censored, but the internet is policing it. I don't know, it just doesn't quite fit the description anymore. Also, for those teams out there that need a geography lesson, I am embedding this Google map. Notice how Minneapolis/St Paul is nowhere near a great lake.

Mutual hatred is a good reason to team up. For instance, Aquaman Sucks decided what their team name should be based solely (this word looks really weird) on their agreement that Aquaman could do squat here in Colorado. Mutual hatred in a team, however, is not good for morale. I'm not going to say "poor Chris" for what happened with his team and their Round 3 not getting turned in.

Handjob by Proxy makes many different drawings of me, but I guess I'm not a cheeta. That was a play on words that makes Sierra ROFL. If you don't know what ROFL is, I just want to make sure that you know you are reading a web log, weblog, 'blog. These are the ones that wanted to beat Chris into a pulp, but instead wanted him immortalized as someone not cool.

In summary, don't be embarassed about doing well in sex-related rounds with your family with you. Points matter more than your rep with your parents.

 

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

 

P.S. Twirling really does need an 'H'.

The Etymology of Medieval

There was a family at the table next to me where I set up. Throughtout the evening, I talked about fantastic subjects such as children's soccer and football. These conversations tended toward injuries that happen in these sports at young ages. I was shocked and surprised by the quantity and quality of these wounds, but I kept my opinions to myself because one of the sons sharpened all of my pencils for me with the brand new pencil sharpener that sharpens your pencil to precisely almost as sharp as you want it. Darn you X-acto and your theories on lead tip diamaeter.

I was going to turn today's blog into a mad-lib, but on the drive home last night, I realized that I'm not creative enough for that this week. Maybe next week I will have a fantastic story, but before you read it, you need to pick different parts of speech. That is what a mad-lib is for those of you that don't know. They get funny when you put raunchy words in, or when you put regular words in, but the innuendo becomes too much for everyone and you pass out laughing on the floor as if you had all read the world's deadliest joke (see Monty Python if you haven't).

The Clever Team Name of the Night Award goes to Sponsored By: for their ingenious way of making me come up with different sponsorships throughout the night. I ended up with the pencil sponsorship because I needed them back, and Staples has their own sports arena, so there ha. A close second is Two in the Pink, One in the Jar Jar Binks because I didn't realize what it meant until the 3rd time I said it out loud.

These images brought to you by 20 Eyes. They didn't appreciate my moody music at the beginning of quiz, so they reverted back to high school and passed a note. They wanted it to be creepy, but it wasn't. Try harder next time; I can think of at least two ways to make it creepy. Also, this horse picture. It is interesting how this team makes animals that look like me whereas another team enjoys placing me in different scenes. Fun. Enjoy this horse.

 

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

 

P.S. The Geeky never showed up from The Geeky, The Shiny, and The Gimpy, so they accepted a substitution.
