To Elias Turner, a high school senior as of this writing, one of his most influential friends from high school is Jairson Ascencao, who, at the age of 20, still loves to climb trees. He was in the tree when Nick first met him in early September. What took place in the tree was captured in this video.
Jairson’s world was drastically changed when he, few days later, saw the YouTube Series Thumoslang101. His reaction to the series was captured in 21 videos, together known as the YouTube series Thumoslang102. Many of these videos were deemed powerful to Norman D. Baker, a friend of Jairson’s whom he met three months earlier.
