The Youtube was a copy of an educational video that described the inner workings of what was once the Union Carbide facility in Danbury, CT. It's called "Union Carbide Corporate Center in Danbury" and was posted by jjrieche in 2014.

I'd establish a commune that's sole job is to solve the unsolved, answer the great mysteries of life all while wearing shiny green jumpsuits.
