Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax!

  • “Melomind tracks your brain activity in real time and sends the info to your phone so that the music evolves according to your level of stress. Thanks to this neurofeedback model, you should already feel more relaxed after a five minute session.” – Melomind is a pair of headphones that will teach you how to relax
  • “The drink’s origin story is relatable, too. Baumann found himself where no one would ever want to be: Los Angeles International Airport. Baumann looked around and saw angry drivers and people stuck on lines to get on flying metal tubes. In the sea of stressed out travelers, this is when he apparently came up with the idea to develop a drink to keep people calm and focused.” – We Gave a Drink Designed to Help You Relax to Our Stressed-Out Staff. Here’s What We Thought.
  • “Watching one meet the hot end of a blowtorch is extremely satisfying for anyone who’s ever been forced to abandon the manual labour involved in eating one and for anyone who’s a fan of rainbow spectrums because they all come out here in soothing fashion.” – Watch: Melting a jawbreaker with a blow torch is oddly soothing and extremely satisfying.
  • “It’s the type of utilitarian work that might not directly lead to any scientific breakthroughs, but makes it possible for anyone to live there. This type of thing probably gets monotonous (indeed, Reddit is also chock full of horror stories about working at the South Pole) but this video makes it feel like magic.” – Chill Out To This Soothing South Pole Plowing Timelapse
  • “They say that rather than wonder how consciousness arises, one should look at where we know it exists and go from there to where else it might exist. They conclude that it is an inherent property of physical systems in which information moves around in a certain way — and that could include some kinds of artificial intelligence and even naturally occurring nonliving matter.” – Do Honeybees Feel? Scientists Are Entertaining the Idea
