Ain't Nobody Got Time For Winter

Mother nature's first showing of her wrath didn't keep trivia pals from coming to Camp Bar on Monday night. Twelve teams showed up to hang out with Quizmistress Mal, have some cocktails, and get their knowledge on. Couple of high scores tonight lead to another sudden death round for second place. Let's take a look to see how the teams did.

Celebrating her 21st (aka 29th) birthday, Cindy and team #notallyaks took home a first place win tonight, making out with a $30 bar tab. Hope those were spent on birthday shots!

Article of the Week - Harry Houdini

Harry Houdini (born Erik Weisz in Budapest, later Ehrich Weiss or Harry Weiss; March 24, 1874 – October 31, 1926) was a Hungarian-American illusionist and stunt performer, noted for his sensational escape acts. He first attracted notice as "Harry Handcuff Houdini" on a tour of Europe, where he challenged police forces to keep him locked up. Soon he extended his repertoire to include chains, ropes slung from skyscrapers, straitjackets under water, and having to hold his breath inside a sealed milk can.

In 1904, thousands watched as he tried to escape from special handcuffs commissioned by London's Daily Mirror, keeping them in suspense for an hour. Another stunt saw him buried alive and only just able to claw himself to the surface, emerging in a state of near-breakdown. While many suspected that these escapes were faked, Houdini presented himself as the scourge of fake magicians and spiritualists.

Houdini made several movies, but quit acting when it failed to bring in money. He was also a keen aviator, and aimed to become the first man to fly a plane in Australia.

Harry Houdini died of peritonitis, secondary to a ruptured appendix at 1:26 p.m. on October 31, 1926 in Room 401 at Detroit's Grace Hospital, aged 52. In his final days, he optimistically held to a strong belief that he would recover, but his last words before dying were reportedly, "I'm tired of fighting." Eyewitnesses to an incident at Houdini's dressing room in the Princess Theatre in Montreal gave rise to speculation that Houdini's death was caused by a McGill University student, J. Gordon Whitehead, who delivered a surprise attack of multiple blows to Houdini's abdomen.

San Diaaago: Spanish For A Whales...

F bombs, a rowdy back bar, and a sudden death round made for an enjoyable night of trivia at Camp Bar Monday night. Fourteen teams came out for the shenanigans and competed for fantastic bar prizes.

First place and a $30 bar tab went to You Really Joe Goss'ed This Trivia Game Joe Goss.

No one knows what it means but it's provocative!

Coming in clutch with winning the sudden death round, second place and a $20 bar tab...give it up for Fucking Canada.

That's all we really have to say about our neighbors to the north.

Finally, 400 Meters: The Size of a Track And Kim Kardashians Ass takes home Best Team Name tonight, rightfully so.

I think next time we do a real or fake bonus round question, Kim's ass makes an appearance.

See everyone next Monday!

Article of the Week - Cleopatra

Cleopatra VII Philopator (Late 69 BC – August 12, 30 BC) - who, being far better known than all others of that name, is known to history as Cleopatra without qualifications - was the last active pharaoh of Ancient Egypt, only shortly survived by her son, Caesarion as pharaoh.

Cleopatra was a member of the Ptolemaic dynasty, a family of Greek origin that ruled Egypt after Alexander the Great's death during the Hellenistic period. The Ptolemies, throughout their dynasty, spoke Greek and refused to speak Egyptian, which is the reason that Greek as well as Egyptian languages were used on official court documents such as the Rosetta Stone. By contrast, Cleopatra did learn to speak Egyptian and represented herself as the reincarnation of an Egyptian goddess, Isis.

Cleopatra originally ruled jointly with her father, Ptolemy XII Auletes, and later with her brothers, Ptolemy XIII and Ptolemy XIV, whom she married as per Egyptian custom, but eventually she became sole ruler. As pharaoh, she consummated a liaison with Julius Caesar that solidified her grip on the throne. She later elevated her son with Caesar, Caesarion, to co-ruler in name.

After Caesar's assassination in 44 BC, she aligned with Mark Antony in opposition to Caesar's legal heir, Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianus (later known as Augustus). With Antony, she bore the twins Cleopatra Selene II and Alexander Helios, and another son, Ptolemy Philadelphus (her unions with her brothers had produced no children). After losing the Battle of Actium to Octavian's forces, Antony committed suicide. Cleopatra followed suit, according to tradition killing herself by means of an asp bite on August 12, 30 BC.[8] She was briefly outlived by Caesarion, who was declared pharaoh by his supporters but soon killed on Octavian's orders. Egypt became the Roman province of Aegyptus.
