Pappy-R: Beer. "Incoming" never sounded so sweet!
a madman: I think my views on beer launchers are well-documented.
Jube: Launching meat at vegetarians sounds like fun, but I'd launch dirty laundry instead, I'm lazy and I get tired of seeing it laying on the floor.
IceStorm: I would have a beer launcher from my fridge aimed at my computer desk.
Hellchick: I'd actually like to make my own railgun. I've got the plans for it...

Pappy-R: Heaven is having boobies in the same room that you Quake in. If I had boobies, long loading times wouldn't be so bad.
a madman: Well, Twinkies are one small step up from lard-soaked styrofoam. Damn, this is a close one... but I'm going to have to go for breasts.
Jube: Damn this is tough indeed. The creamy sugary goodness of Twinkies compared to Quake. How about I loan you some boobies and you let me pick two?
IceStorm: Too many decisions. I'll go with number D.
Hellchick: Like there's anything other than Quake. (makes rude noise)

Jube: Huh? Yeah uhm... mom said I was speshel. Not sure what the question is, but that sounds like as good an answer as any. ;)
IceStorm: If I take three steps back I can almost read that. It says IceStorm is my hero!

Pappy-R: So far, about eight years, but I'm gonna need a nap soon.
a madman: Since it doesn't say "Quake session," about 20. Otherwise, 4-5.
Jube: 16 hours baybee! Warcraft II. Second place was Quake with 12 hours.
IceStorm: Well, at some lan's it's a long time so I'd say more than 9. But with the occasional every 15 minute beer break.
Hellchick: About 9-16 hours. After that I start getting woozy and seeing John Carmack in robes carrying tablets. It gets a little hazy after that.

Pappy-R: Run events, cover events, provide game support, host community sites, help with mods/maps...and I have a couple websites somewhere too.
a madman: I modz0r. And, you know, contribute to a gaming site. Occasionally.
Jube: I think you all know the answer to this one already. PlanetQuake / PlanetWolfenstein, although they're really more extraterrestrial than extracurricular. ;)
IceStorm: I'm too lazy to do anything, Pappy-R is my mentor.
Hellchick: used to run a clan (Hell's Belles!), but these days I make levels and a mod (http://www.planetquake.com/detonator). And since work IS games, I guess that counts...

When your flag is stolen you... [submitted by ]{ami]{aze]

Pappy-R: The guy with my rag is now my new chew toy, and the old dawg does love his chew toys! *chomp*
a madman: Well, since I usually have the enemy flag myself I generally wait around a few minutes, get bored, go try to cap the enemy flag carrier, and get fragged. Patience is not one of my virtues...
Jube: Flash boobies.
IceStorm: Shoot everyone in sight and look for the void.
Hellchick: I call the police and fill a report, giving them a very detailed description of it so that they can find the culprit. "Yes, officer, it was blue, it was right here in the base the last time I looked..."


Who are these people, anyway?

Pappy-R is the PlanetQuake Site Director and ensures that all the coolness on PQ that happens, happens.
a madman is the official PQ Content Manager, and when he's not doing that he's insulting people in the Mailbag. It's a good job.
Jube runs the morning shift around here, and posts more news before 9 am than most people do all day.
IceStorm takes care of two things for us - news, and PQ's "excess beer" problem.
f4nt0m45 (MIA this week) is the quintessential PQ newsie, dishing out the news and even hammering out the occasional article.
Hellchick gave up a promising career in astrophysics to make a job out of Quake. She also holds the GameSpy record for "most inflatable sheep named Pearl."
