185: ALL QUIZ BONANZA! #37

DIRECT DOWNLOAD  /  ITUNES  /  RSS 

Time to combine that black matter and white matter and turn it into grey matter with our all quiz episode! How do we get people more into classic literature? Well, with a teen movie starring Hilary & Haley Duff, of course! Chris did some mad research and found an alarming amount of modern films that based on classic books and made it into a quiz. Pub quizzes love asking about abbreviations and acronyms so boot up that screaming modem because Colin prepared the M.O.T.A.A.Q.: Mostly Outdated Technology Abbreviations and Acronyms Quiz. Inspired by previous quizzes, Karen presented the RAZZCARS challenge! Featuring actors who have won both Oscars (best film achievement) and Razzies (worst film achievement.) And time to play "Brad Pitt? Or Lasers?" with a fan-submitted quiz.

Hello Good Job Brainers!
First of all, love the show! I don't exactly remember which episode it was but it's the reason I am writing you fine people on this fine evening. A Camel was born this morning (June 29) here in North Dakota at the Bismarck, ND zoo, and today is Wednesday.. aka HUMP DAY! How ironic?! I instantly thought of you guys and Alexander Humpington. They haven't named this little guy yet. Here's the link to the video and some pics :) http://www.kfyrtv.com/content/news/Meet-Dakota-Zoos-newest-addition-a-baby-camel-born-on-Hump-Day-384928291.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook_KFYR-TV

Enjoy!

Please suggest that they name him Alexander Humpington! It has to happen somehow.

I'm a ham radio operator and shortwave listener. Just to add to the information from the MOTAAQ, there are a very, very few Stereo AM stations out there, and there is another important AM mode of communication called SSB or Single Side Band. Radio may be old, but with the use of HF communications in this year's South American and Italy disasters, it certainly isn't outdated. SSTV and ARISS are also some fascinating things to look into that are radio related.
