Trivia: May Need Help
It’s all hands on deck time at Trivia and I may need your help. We are waiting for the final scores from the 373 questions asked so far, but we are in a dead heat with another team for the victory. We have 3-5 questions left called Garrudas. All but the last one with be worth 15-25 points (a standard question is 5) and the final question (the Super Garruda) will be worth anywhere from...
Have been somewhat uninspired this weekend during the contest. However, I think we just had our winner. We are having Disney Hour and someone called in, answered the question and listed their team name as The Little Spermaid. That’s funny stuff.
After question #250 we are tied for first place. Pending a dispute over record keeping we might be in first place by one. Of course, we are already on to question 270. 13 more minutes in Paula Deen hour, and 15:22 hours in the contest.
Um-Cha Um-Cha Um-Cha
Um-Cha Um-Cha Um-Cha Um-Cha Um-Cha Um-Cha It’s gay hour and the command center has turned into disco party and we’ve already had a Ru Paul question.
What disturbs me more, that “broken propeller” has been co-opted as a bone breaking sex move, or that Google’s Top hit is that link to the urban dictionary.
You can… it’s a little late this year, but the contest streams online http://blogs.lawrence.edu/trivia/ - link is on the right. As long as you have an phone that lets you call the US without obscene charges. Although you latency might be a little too much for the three minute time frames.
Run for your frackin’ lives!
Actually @Terminalsingles was correct based on the way the question was asked. The crossword was out on election day and the answer could have been “Bob Dole” or Clinton. So technically there were two answers to 41 down of Bra or Ira. The answer ended up actually being IRA, but it was written to have two answers. Edit - @sarcasticrylie - Interesting fact, how’s it feel to be...
It's Viola Hour
I’m about as useful as a mime in a shouting contest.
150 Questions Down
5:30 until we hit the halfway point and we just hit the 150th question and we’re running just under 70% accuracy. Either way, here’s the 150th question. You have three minutes: What are the answers to 41 down in the NYT crossword puzzle that appeared 4 months after dolly the sheep was born?
Caturday: Trivia Style
So this unit of time in trivia is known as the Meowur. It’s cat questions and you can learn some weird shit. Cat Island, Japan. It’s Like That “Cat Lady,” But An Entire Island
gilesmarie-deactivated20120313 asked: What's the best compliment you've ever received?
kattcalls-deactivated20110222 asked: You're chained to the PC? Is that some kinky new thing you and Fi are doing now?
sitsonthefencehasgone-deactivat asked: Whats been the one comment, idea or thought that most inspired you to do something different with your life?
I'm chained to the PC
with regular short breaks if you want to ask me something http://flyoverjoel.tumblr.com/ask
“I know you don’t like thumb in the butt jokes, but I thought you might like thumb in the butt then in the eye. It’s a twist on a classic joke.”- FlyoverFi just a few minutes ago.
I just got more sleep then I’ve ever had at Trivia. Since we are playing with a small squad, we determined it made more sense for me to sleep early and be functional for the Saturday day shift. So I slept poorly from 11:30 to 2:30 with the screaming and yelling in the other room, then a little more soundly from 4:00 to 7:00. I’m hoping to take a brief nap late this afternoon. So...
Jam Team: Choadio Clowns Someone actually blew their jam team load on the first question.
So it is a call-in contest, so one of the tricks teams use (but aren’t supposed to) is calling in to jam the phone lines and prevent teams from getting in to answer the question. However, your team is only allowed to answer the question correctly once. If your team gets announced twice for one question your score for it gets thrown out. So this leads to teams calling in with accurate...
Dispatches From Insanity
Dispatches From Insanity If you are curious as to why I’m tweeting and tumbling at odd hours, this will explain it. It’s not a TweetDeck issue, it’s trivia. So I just made it to Appleton, WI after a six hour white knuckle drive through four inches of snow. I had to pull the car over on the highway on several occasions just to scrape the accumulated ice of the windshield wipers. Why would I do...
Thank You Oddspeak
Thank you kindly! I shall name my next cat Odd or Speak or OddSpeak in your honor. Or maybe I won’t but I’ll tell you I did. Either way, I am super appreciative. Thanks! Really.
So, I clearly can’t find a setting regarding this. Is there a way to allow me to page through my dashboard rather than a continuous scroll of posts? I don’t get to check tumblr as often and after I load a bunch of yer crap my system gets really sad and slow. It’d be much nice to have a set number of posts per page and just keep going back. Thanks in advance.
verifythis: missyerthanyou: flyoverjoel replied to your post: I’m 5’2 You are totally getting a nose in the belly button hug from me in Chicago. That belly button better be lint free! And make sure your nose is clean. I’ll be able to see all your boogies. Whenever I see a post about #CHSH I get so giddy! I can’t wait to meet you two goofballs plus the rest of the people going. I wish it...
More on Pink Bathrooms
So thanks to those of you who read my work blog (and Shira and Juarez for commenting) this morning on pink bathrooms and Flickr, I really appreciate it. The article in the Minneapolis Star Tribune just came out online and the best part is the title Bathrooms still in the pink - this cracks me up because the wife and I have already been making “in the stink” jokes. Also, you can see a...
If you are bored
I wrote a work blog about how Flickr forced me to clean my bathroom. It’s not as compelling as my Be the Match piece, but I think it’s mildly entertaining for the 85 seconds it takes to read. So if you are really bored, here’s the link.
TCFU Personal Observation About Beer
Fiona and I typically throw three parties a year: her birthday, Halloween and New Year’s (although we didn’t do NYE because of England this year). The next morning during cleanup, I’ll find at least six or seven half finished beers. These are all from me. It’s because I start drinking a beer, set it down and lose it. Then open another one and repeat the process. ...
… I meet the Internet. Muwahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! *Puts on evil scientist gloves* Seriously though, I’m really excited to meet Wwwesty, Tackie_Jackie, Joe_Smith_Really, Untressor, Love_Shunt, Hecademical, Getyourowncoffee and others and to see GilesMarie, Batshelter and Jwynia again at #TCFU. I just realized Faulkner’s run on sentences were stream of consciousness...
Just so you know...
wordsworthinc: Someone following/followed by 30,000+ plus people did offer #FFs for shorty votes. And I did block. I tend to block or unfollow people who really, really press for stars too. Unless they are green. I believe you can ask for a lot of things on Twitter. But validation comes naturally. It’s not something you can request. There’s a lot to be said for integrity…
