Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax!

  • “When I told my husband about it, he grimaced. ‘Why would you want to read about that?’ he asked, before going back to his Rockets game. It was hard to explain why exploring the torture chamber of Jude’s past was exactly what I wanted to do after a long day at work.” – When a Tale of Torture Is Oddly Relaxing [CW: violence]
  • “For me, veggie prep is a comforting way to ease into cooking a meal, when the kitchen is calm and competing pots are not yet being stirred. Produce from the garden has been brought in, washed and laid out on the counter. That’s the moment I reflect on each vegetable and decide how to treat it, depending on the condition it’s in, the variety I’ve grown and the use to which it will be put.” – Vegetable preparation is relaxing, no matter how you slice it
  • “This time-lapse of someone building a chair leg is satisfying and comforting for reasons we can’t quite explain. Watching the wood slowly shaved away to reveal a graceful form is a lovely way to spend a few moments today. The chair leg was made by the furniture makers Koja Designs, who have a few other similarly great YouTube videos.” – Watch A Deeply Relaxing Time-Lapse of Someone Making a Wooden Chair Leg
  • “Making a cup of tea for someone can be a way of saying, ‘I care about you. Have this hot bland liquid that I made for you just the way you like it.’ If you’ve had an argument with a roommate, offer to make them a cup of tea — if they accept, everything is okay now. This is also a great way to apologize without directly addressing the issue, which is the most British thing you could be doing anyway.” – What Americans can learn from the soothing British ritual of tea time
  • “The hydrophones are encased in titanium to withstand the deep sea pressure. They are then attached to a remote-controlled vehicle that travels out to eruptions that are otherwise unreachable by man. And, if that wasn’t cool enough, just wait until you hear the sounds that they’ve discovered. From the deep bass rumbles of underwater volcanoes, to the eerie, harmonic scrapes of icebergs on tectonic plate, the sounds seem to fit our ideas of cosmic ambience more than nautical noise.” – Listen to the strangely soothing sounds of underwater volcanos
