Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax!

  • “So what is motivating viewers to seek out and endure content that most would classify as tedium? The phenomenon is called Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, or ASMR. Colloquially, the sensation felt in the head, neck and spine and the relaxation that follows is referred to as the tingles. Some use the videos to relax. Others find them effective sleep aids.” – A Beginner’s Guide to ASMR, the Most Relaxing Videos on YouTube
  • “Kimmel’s accent is gloriously terrible, as the words ‘not the magician’ somehow become ‘nazi magician,’ a phrase which gets his audition partner more than a little upset. Waltz’s great comedy comes from his utter offense at everything that Kimmel is doing with his terrible accent. The Austrian-born German citizen, of course, could perform the audition in German, so his offense is more than a little understandable.” – Watch Christoph Waltz’s Hysterical Audition For The Siegfried And Roy Movie
  • “It’s so relaxing! I say this as someone who watches several straight hours of How It’s Made to calm myself, but man, that is good stuff. You got some good meltin’ and castin’, some engravin’ and etchin’, some buffin’. There might have even been some smeltin’ in there, who knows? I don’t know what smelting is.” – Here are the 2016 Olympic medals, and an extremely soothing video about how they’re made
  • “‘Kelly!’ My sister screamed at me, her eyebrows cinched together. ‘Are you kidding me?!’ My mom paused from her pacing and looked at me, not knowing if she should laugh or scold me.” – Why it feels so damn good to laugh at a funeral
  • “…until six months ago, I’d never heard of ASMR. All I knew was that I had a fondness for particular sounds and voices. When people spoke to me kindly and softly, it eased some of the symptoms that came with my anxiety disorder. Certain accents and tones made my body feel tingly and calm. I even noticed random noises, like gentle crinkling and paper shuffling, had a tendency to soothe my anxious states.” – How ASMR Videos Help Me Cope with My Anxiety
  • “Trying to calm down during a bout of anxiety is likely futile. Instead, try saying: “I am excited.” Because anxiety and excitement are both arousal emotions and have similar symptoms, it’s easier to get from one to the other than to completely shift gears into calmness.” – How to Turn Anxiety Into Excitement
