So what does a physicist do to wow his beloved and convince her to marry him? He puts it in a scientific paper, of course.
An Australian physicist’s “research” was posted to the site Reddit, titled “Two-body interactions: A Longitudinal Study.”
In the work, Brendan (his last name was withheld in the Reddit post) references a classic physics problem concerning two objects’ gravitational forces. He even includes a graph of “happiness vs. time” in which he portrays an optimistic upward trend.
As for the conclusion, the author writes: “the author proposes to Christie the indefinite continuation of the study.”
Christie (her last name was also withheld) and author Brendan are both physicists in Sydney, Australia.
The paper was written in March 2012, but now-fiancee, Christie first published an image of it on Sunday.
The work does not appear to have been peer-reviewed.
