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.

Wreck-less Driving

There was going to be a different title to the blog. I can't remember what it was supposed to be, but I know it was a lot better than a pun about how horrible the driving has been lately combined with how many accidents I have been in. With the ice for one, the potholes for another, and the other drivers that decide that it is alright to speed up into a gap you are merging into when you have your signal on and then they proceed to honk at you as if to say "I'm an asshole." Not me, but them saying it about themselves. He was completely out of my blind spot. I don't usually talk about the title in the blog (meta isn't the right modifier for it), but fearing for my life because three cars want to fit where only one car will makes it an important event in my life. Definitely blog-worthy. This is why I wanted a different title.

I forgot that there was a game on tonight. College is over, and playoffs are here. Man has Michael Strahan gotten thin. Howie long looks so old. In other news, go Broncos! Hasn't anyone made the connection that colts are adolescent broncos? Peyton Manning grew up finally. Let's lay down the...sportsmanlike... smack down on them this afternoon.

As a correction, Boba Fettish turned in their round 8 to the front of the table, and I didn't see it. Their score ties them for 4th place. Brontosaurus is Still a Real Dinosaur decided to try the high chair for Baby Charlie. I don't know how well it worked out. I didn't get a chance to ask him. A couple things teams wanted me to look up on the internet include Murderous Nazi Super Cows. They inform me that there are aggressive strains of cow that Nazis bred to kill people. A couple farmers died recently because of them. Talk about slash and burn. I was encouraged to look up urban slang "fleek" by Fleek on Point Bae. If you believe this author then it dates back to elephant sex in the 1800s. Just for that I want to believe him. Corporations are killing the meme simply by using it. Happens a lot. I just added "meme" to my editor's dictionary!

 

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

 

P.S. And then there is this. And this. And this.

The Last Days of Summer

I almost had a clock going yesterday. At least I thought it was almost. I worked on it a little after quiz, and finished it up this morning. I got my hands on some 8-digit dot matrix displays from a friend, and they are sweet. How did they know so many years ago that they would give me LEDs of my favorite color. It is a little cumbersome because it is a parallel interface instead of a serial one, but they were free. With more wire I could probably sneak away with running two of them (date and time), but I don't have enough wire, and my uno looks a little like the Amazon already, so I won't add more to it. I'm running out of I/O on this little board, but I got to use interrupts in a clever way that the internet came up with. On another note, my text editor thinks that "favorite" and "color" are misspelled because I set it to British English instead of American. In speaking of that, there were quite a few non-English team names last night. From the simple Nada to Los Caballeros de la Luna, and other names I will put in this category like The Hollanders, The German Codpieces, African Swallows, and kinda Benedict Cumberbitchezzz.

Welcome to 2015! You all had a strong start at quiz. In speaking of quiz, I saw a friend from college at a new-year's shindig. I was not expecting to see her, so that was cool. They made a DARK and stormy for me that night. Luckily I had a ride. That's what happens when you play "stump the bartender" wherever you go. Don't think they have celery, ask for a bloody mary. I used to have a recipe for a Darth Vader. It is like a long island iced tea, but I can't remember the differences. I haven't had that in a couple years. Need to look it up. Did you know that Luke Skywalker's (character, not actor) favorite drink is hot chocolate? Now you know. You never see him drinking it on Hoth though. That would be too obvious. Plus he was a little too busy getting strung up for a Wampa. You know what looks like Hoth? Outside.

 

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

Using Those Vacation Days

Snow should never stick around this long. Luckily, I didn't need to shovel the driveway. Thank you south-facing house! That is another way for you to tell your direction here in the 'burbs. Snow sticks around on the south side of roads. I wonder if it also sticks around on the west side of roads because it gets light when the temperature is still cold. You should only need one cardinal direction though, so that's a good thing that you know south. If you can see the mountains, then you know south and west. Perfect. Now all you need to remember is that east is opposite west and same with north and south. Then you will have all the info you need to answer a quiz question involving directions or places. We had a lot of place questions tonight.

There is a benefit to having a March birthday. You only have to wait 3 months from the holiday season, and that is when the next video game release cycle is. I lost my train of thought. Sooo0o many bowl games. I am of the persuasion that all bowl games should be titled the name of a dip, or dippable food. For example: guacamole bowl, nacho bowl, ranch bowl, queso bowl. Maybe we could expand that to a cereal bowl, or salad bowl. We could also monopolize on places already named bowl like the Hollywood Bowl. Could you imagine a sports game being played there. I can.

An amendment needs to be placed on last week's blog. It has been scientifically proven that my memory isn't the best when it comes to the passage of time, so it turns out that Baby Charlie, from Charlie in Charge is just shy of 5 months, which definitely kicks him out of the toddler category. He is only just gaining control of his motor skills as evidenced by this gif. Apologies to Gary and Cassidy who already feel that he is growing up too fast without my augmented internal clock getting in the way.

 

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