The creator, Tim Blais, is a self-professed harmony addict who is currently working on a master's degree in theoretical physics. On his Facebook page, Blais describes the venture as “an educational and utterly nerdy online video project.”
The cover is chock full of informative lyrics, such as:
There's a collider under Geneva Reaching new energies that we've never achieved before Finally we can see with this machine A brand new data peak at 125 GeV See how gluons and vector bosons fuse Muons and gamma rays emerge from something new There's a collider under Geneva Making one particle that we've never seen before.
In the channel's description, Blais notes his past, and asks: "What ELSE was I going to make a YouTube channel about?"
Joel Bush didn’t know anyone was watching when he got down on one knee to propose to Jennifer Orr. But photographer Patrick Lu happened upon the couple on the capital grounds in Austin, Texas and shared his beautiful picture to Reddit: “Did any of you propose at the capital last night?” The post made it to the top of /r/Austin with 1,400 up votes (the highest of all time in that subreddit), and Redditors offered many suggestions on how to locate the mystery couple. It turns out, Bush himself discovered the post and tweeted his elation that the Internet had shared in the couple’s happy moment.
