Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax!

  • “The soundtrack mimics the sound of ice melting. The artists behind the video say it’s meant to cause an autonomous sensory meridian response, which is characterized as ‘a distinct, pleasurable tingling sensation in the head, scalp, back, or peripheral regions of the body in response to visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, or cognitive stimuli.’ The video’s description says it’s best enjoyed on a full screen with headphones — just let it wash over you.”  – Watching Frozen Food Defrost Is Surprisingly Soothing
  • “The single button on the device releases a scent described as ‘powdered rose, peach and pear, with notes of talc and musk.’ After 30 minutes, the machine kicks over to the second scent designed to keep you in a deep sleep, which releases an odor of ‘fresh linen with notes of soap and sandalwood.’ According to Sensorwake, the scents were developed with moments linked to our emotions and peaceful childhood memories to help you relax.” – Device lulls you to sleep with relaxing scents
  • “Hygge — pronounced to sound somewhere between ‘booger’ and ‘hooker’ — is an apparently untranslatable concept which embodies the Nordic art of cosiness. Of course, the fact that we can call it cosiness, or perhaps conviviality, slightly ruins the idea it is untranslatable. As does the far closer German word Gemütlichkeit, which as far as I gather, is pretty much an exact equivalent.” – Hygge: the Danish key to happiness or pseudo-wisdom?
  • “New Year’s Day hangover still going strong? Sometimes, all you need is to pretend you’re bathing somewhere dreamy, and not sprawled on your sofa in a onesie.” – 9 soul-soothing views from hot tubs around the world
  • “When you walk through a cemetery you get a different sense of time. It resonates deeper in the soul. A stand of spruce trees whispers intimate words to the dead. I linger in the same places I stood as a young man. The years have grown on me like the rings of a tree. I accept it as the terms of my existence.” –  The tales a cemetery can tell, soothing and otherwise
