This is one of the nerdiest and coolest things I have ever seen. Bravo sir, well played...
It's been frustrating, this 100-year search by physicists all over the world for a Unified Theory of Everything. And Tim Blais, physics grad student, a capella singer and Queen fan, feels their collective pain. Don't miss the Albert Einstein hand puppet in a hail storm, crying his heart out in Blais' Bohemian Rhapsody on String Theory.

The most important difference between the world today and 150 years ago isn’t airplane flight or nuclear weapons or the Internet. It’s lifespan. We used to live 35 or 40 years on average in the United States, but now we live almost 80. We used to get one life. Now...

I'm so glad my wife and I found carpool near our new house. My wife loves skee ball and they have that plus a ton of other games, mix that with the best beer selection I have seen in Herndon and great food and you have a place to catch a game or fun any time
