15 'Shower Thoughts' That Live Rent Free In My Mind

For many of us, the bathroom is an integral part of our morning routine. It's where we cleanse our bodies, vanquish our waste, and prepare to face a new day.

If you're anything like me, it's also the spot where some of the most random and remarkable thoughts take shape. Have a look at these 15 "shower thoughts" that live rent-free in my mind.

"All adults were children, but not all children will become adults."

I'm choosing to interpret this on a metaphorical level as opposed to a literal one. I know plenty of adults (at least on paper) who haven't changed one iota since I first met them on the playground.

Bag fries will one day be a thing of the past.

There's nothing better than when you open your bag of fast food only to realize there's an ample amount of extra fries lining the bottom of the bag. Once fast food chains become completely automated, these mistakes will cease to exist.

Saturday morning cartoons are quickly becoming a thing of the past.

"Gen Z might have been the last generation to know what it’s like to get up early in the morning to catch your favorite cartoons on TV." - Reddit u/herbstohnewind

I'll follow you into the dark...

Being afraid of the dark is one of the most common fears on the planet. But the fact of the matter is humans aren't actually afraid of being alone in the dark β€” we're afraid of not being alone in the dark.

"We advocate not judging a book by its cover, but also glorify 'love at first sight.'"

Love, at first sight, is a romantic ideal created by poets and playwrights β€” it doesn't exist in the real world. If we know not to judge a book based on the face it presents to the world, why not apply this golden rule to people as well?

Speed limits are more like a speed suggestion.

When you see a speed limit sign posted on the highway, that's the legal limit you're allowed to travel at. It's also simultaneously the lowest socially acceptable limit in the eyes of the other drivers on the road.

When is the last time you hung up on someone?

"Kids will never understand the poignant self-satisfaction of slamming a phone down on the cradle to hang up on someone and end an angry conversation." - Reddit u/NachoStamps

Everything bagels can be taken as a metaphor for life.

Who doesn't appreciate a good "everything bagel" now and again? They quite literally have it all. It's also proof how even those who have everything more often than not still have a hole inside themselves.

Taking the phrase "two birds with one stone" to an entirely new level.

"The asteroid that ended the dinosaurs was technically the highest ratio of killing birds to one stone in Earth's history," writes Redditor cubosh.

It's funny because it's true.

You can't see the forest for the trees.

Reditor Dashover is quick to point out that most of the trees you see when you look out your window have been/will continue to be here long after you die.

The irony of nature truly is remarkable.

"A different version of you exists in the minds of everyone who knows you."

I'll be the first to admit that this one made my head hurt. The philosophical implications are massive, and it raises the question of which version of you is the true authentic self?

Try and wrap your head around this paradox.

"As an identical triplet, you are simultaneously one of the rarest and most common people on the planet," explains Reddit user ItsHerox.

I never thought of it like that, but it's the truth.

We're literally living in the future.

When the classic cartoon The Jetsons aired in 1962, it took place 100 years into the future. Today, we are now closer to the year 2062 than we are to the year 1962 β€” how crazy is that?!

Millennials are a truly unique generation.

Millennials were the beta generation for the internet. Due to this fact, they're the only group who possess memories of what life was like before and after the advent of the world wide web.

Say goodbye to wiper blades, forever!

"Once we have self-driving cars, wipers will no longer be essential, because the car doesn't need a clean windshield to drive. Only humans do." - Reddit u/telumv

I'm all for anything that will make vehicle maintenance cheaper.
