15 brilliant thoughts you could only have in the shower

“A paper cut is a tree's last revenge."

You are standing under the nozzle, naked, rinsing out your hair, and suddenly you come up with a philosophical question worthy of Socrates—or at least your vaped-out best friend.

Now there’s a subreddit group for you. Showerthoughts is the place to share “thoughts, ideas, or philosophical questions that race through your head when in the shower.” The creators of the group also define showerthoughts a bit more broadly, as “a loose term that applies to any thought you might have while carrying out a routine task like showering, driving, or daydreaming.” Basically: those moments when you are suddenly as wise as Yoda. And with a listing that is more than 5 million subscribers strong, apparently you are not alone. Here are the top 15 posts thus far.

12) Shouldn’t scented Deoderant [sic] be called Reoderant?

13) If we could stop adding “-gate” to the end of every scandal, that would be great.

14) Old people aren’t cheap. They just used to paying less for things because of inflation.
