With the recent warm weather and tourist traffic, it finally feels like summer here in Victoria. This city has so much to offer but to keep the visitors coming back every year I think we have to add something a bit different to supplement the natural beauty and the usual assortment of outdoor entertainers like musicians, visual artists, jugglers, and mimes. In case you really can’t guess what I’m thinking of, let me spell out the obvious for you… physics buskers and maybe even math buskers.
The above YouTube video shows how it could work. With all physicists and mathematicians being the totally adorable and loveable creatures that they are, the good people of Victoria would inevitably want to keep them around all year long. I am sure UVic has an adequate supply of grad students and post-docs to make this work. What tourist would not want to be photographed with one of them?
