My ASC pub quiz team came 3rd tonight. That is freakin' awesome, for our first actual quiz of the year. (We maintain that "unbeaten" is an accurate reflection of our position thus far, as we never actually managed to compete.)

However, I am competitive. Some of you may remember me from such mishaps as Buzz - The Music Quiz and Singstar 80s. I think 3rd is a very admirable position to take for first time competition, but it'll be first next time.

Firstly, I work at a University, a general place of knowledge, and therefore an excellent source of general knowledge. In the ASC alone we have experts in the field of philosophy, media, history (Ancient, modern and NZ), politics, linguistics, stamp collection (...?), literature and random celebrity knowledge. It shouldn't be too hard to convince these scholarly minds to give up two hours of their week for such a noble cause.

Secondly, three of the ladies who work at the ASC have big tatas, while a fourth has amazing hair. This should count towards precious bonus points.

Thirdly, I'm not above drugging the other teams.

Oh yes, you shall be mine, precious bar tab...

Random celebrity knowledge to a T.

Yeah, we thought I would cane everyone in the "Famous People" section, but it turned out to be "Vaguely Famous and Somewhat Historically Important People" instead.

Turns out I also have a good knowledge of Food & Beverages, despite being a fussy bitch.

I've only ever been involved in a couple of pub quizzes... one was entirely made up of esoteric football knowledge.

Such as:
What country was Eusêbio born in?
Eusêbio who?
You know, the really famous Portugese footballer from the 1960's.
Oh yeah.... that Eusêbio.

Nobody at my table had ever heard of the guy. I guessed Angola (being a former Portguese colony). The right answer was Mozambique. Fucking Portuguese colonies.

Yeah, those fucking Portuguese colonies will get you every time.

My favourite question was "What's the cover price of a NZ Women's Weekly?" Ding ding ding - $3.60. I felt so cool for knowing that.

you could always do the kingslander pub quiz skills and just cheat to win :D nobody will notice you texting the questions to a 3rd party when you have the power of boobs on your side!

Haha, I did text Michaela to check the answer to a NZ history question but she gave me the wrong answer anyway!

Indeed, the power of boobs. To quote the Streets - "They could settle wars with this."

I am the queen of random facts! (I read too much and watch documentaries.) And yet, I have never done a pub quiz. Town is too far away :P

It's a maddeningly long you for you especially. But this has inspired me. Once the ASC team falls apart, I'm going to bring together some of the finest minds possible and make the Uber Pub Quiz Commando Guerilla Superhero Sqad.

"They were the finest minds of their generation... Hand-picked by a competitive and determined (not to mention gorgeous) leader for their strengths. When they join forces, no pub quiz will stand in their way. No team can defeat them; no question will go unanswered; no drink can escape. They are....
