CERN Has A Choir?

Did you know that scientists sometimes do things other than science?  That they don’t always just pipette things all day, or sit with computer readouts projected improbably across their faces?

Sometimes they write songs.  And sometimes they get together in four part harmony and sing those songs.  And with roughly eight thousand scientists working at the world’s largest and highest-energy particle accelerator to draw from it’s actually not at all surprising that they managed to find enough talented people to rewrite an old satirical song to be about the poor scientists who labor in search of the Higgs Boson.

Video below, natch.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
