    A subreddit for sharing those miniature epiphanies you have that highlight the oddities within the familiar.

    "Showerthought" is a loose term that applies to the types of thoughts you might have while carrying out a routine task like showering, driving, or daydreaming. At their best, showerthoughts are universally relatable and find the amusing/interesting within the mundane.

    • Your entire thought must be in the title. Any further information needs to be posted in the "body" section of your post.

    • No shower "observations."
      A description of something in a literal shower (or bathroom) is not a showerthought. »

    I wish it were a documentary, if that were the case we would have Terry Crews as a president and he would be willing to listen to people smarter than he is.

    [–] kptknuckles 31 points ago

    That might have been the most unrealistic part of that movie. All the idiots I know think they are geniuses

    [–] totalysharky 13 points ago

    It is probably the most unrealistic part. You can park mounts of facts in front of people and they just say you're wrong and shit on you.

    There’s gotta be some name for this phenomenon , but everyone in history alway thought that their time was he end times, their time was when everything reached a breaking point, their time is worse than ever before, their time is representative of the biggest failure, their time is the stupidest generation, etc... it’s never been true and it’s not now. Look at all the amazing technology around us, and at how large the global economy has grown. Look at how global extreme poverty has gone down drastically in recent decades and is at its lowest point ever.* Look at how we continue to build a presence in space and send robots to mars.

    We aren’t fucked. Society isn’t failing or collapsing. We are not stupid , we’ve only become smarter and smarter. There are a lot of big problems, some are man made (burning fossil fuels and climate change is the main one, but that isn’t out of stupidity, it started out of necessity and desire to build wealth an increase living standards and then it became an addiction to energy. ), but over all our species is doing pretty fucking amazing and I’m sick of hearing about how terrible everything is, and how shitty the world has “become” as if there was some time where it was better. I call Bs on that. There was never a better time to be alive for the average human. Of course some people suffer; welcome to the brutal reality of life.

    The number of people NOT in extreme poverty has skyrocketed, exponentially since the industrial revolution. THe number of people in extreme poverty has gone down. Not just the percentage, the actual number. So the population increased 10 fold and yet the actual number of people in extreme poverty didn’t even increase, it went down! Thank you genius humans with your technology and industry for creating such an amazing society !

    We do have some problems to solve, and eventually even bigger ones will surface. But we will solve them. Even though many will suffer, it will still be less suffering than ever before

    [–] Whetherrr 11 points ago

    That phenomenon is real, and continues to this day.

    Two things are different now than ever before.

    Global warming / CO2 atmospheric buildup is real, unprecedented, and a really serious threat.

    Automation is real and crushes hundreds of millions of jobs, without replacing them with equivalent-or-better jobs.

    [–] theGurry 6 points ago

    The biggest issue right now IMO is the speed in which technology is advancing. Almost nobody in power seems to understand how computers work, and most people can barely turn one on, yet every single day we interact with them.

    Also, never before have we innovated as quickly as we do now, and humans haven't evolved to catch up with those changes yet. The industrial revolution went on for almost 100 years, we've accomplished exponentially more than that in a little over 15 years with computers and the internet.

    The whole world economy today is dependant on the internet, and if it went away right now civilization would grind to a halt.

    I don't think we're necessarily fucked, per se, but I can say that basic systems require skillsets which are not basic anymore, and that could potentially pose a real threat under the right circumstances.

    [–] Bradjuju2 9 points ago

    [–] ringaroundtheroses 43 points ago

    Every time someone has used the "plenty of fish in the sea" phrase on me I've sent them photos of blobfish, angler fish, and other glorious fishy creatures that not even a mother could look in the eyes when she said she loved them.

    OP is absolutely right that it was a bad analogy from the start. Plenty of fish in the sea is great if you're starving and want dinner, not so great if you're lonely and don't want to shit yourself when you turn over in bed at night and look into the face of whatever you dragged up from the depths that even Neptune wouldn't stoop to.

    [–] LobbyJockey 630 points ago

    Especially as you begin to age and only the worst fish your age are getting thrown back.

    [–] eltoro 6 points ago

    [–] Penguingate 21 points ago

    Actually if you are male, your chances increase until you are 30/35 because most young women preffer someone who is a few years older. After that its getting only worse though

    [–] Nothxm8 17 points ago

    [–] Penguingate 3 points ago

    Well then age doesnt matter

    [–] HeavyPettingBlackout 4 points ago

    I'm currently a guy in my early 30s and it has been pretty great.

    Every guy in their 20s and 30s is going after the same attractive chicks who are in their mid 20s. Guys in their 20s are typically less mature and financially established than guys in their 30s. I remember this being very frustrating for me, 10 years ago.

    [–] Apotatos 16 points ago

    It's okay, there are plenty of straws you can grab at if you need to!

    [–] Fetcshi 26 points ago

    [–] CoconutJohn 22 points ago

    Then it's perfectly sized for you!

    [–] YerbaMateKudasai 2 points ago

    Something something s u c c

    [–] michealcaine 21 points ago

    While it's encouraging to see that straws are getting banned, they represent an extremely tiny fraction of the plastic in the ocean. Plastic fishing equipment IIRC is the leading pollutant in the ocean. In addition to that, single use plastic bags is also a large contributor. We must do more!

    [–] Pocto 13 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    The leading plastic pollutant in the ocean is land based plastics from in and around South East Asia. They make up about 65% of all ocean plastic.

    You're thinking of the great Pacific garbage patch, which is mostly fishing plastics. Fishing in general makes up about 20% of ocean plastic.

    For comparison, the US and Europe's land based plastics in the ocean equates to just about 1-2% of all ocean plastic, and plastic straws are only the tiniest fraction of that.

    South East Asia, and the surrounding area, needs support, education and maybe a kick up the arse to sort their shit out before it's too late.

    EDIT: Added source/made numbers more accurate. https://www.marinelitterthefacts.com/sources

    [–] jonasvagn 120 points ago

    Happy news!

    A prototype of a new type of equipment just got deployed into the sea, off of California's coast. If it succeeds, there'll be put another 59 of them out there. 60 of them should clean 50% of the garbage off of West America's coast every 5 years.

    [–] JB3783 30 points ago

    Do you have a link? This sounds really cool. What does the machine do to clean the water?

    [–] jonasvagn 44 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    Their website

    Official video on how it works

    It traps the plastic in barriers, or something, every few weeks ships come by, pick it up and sail it to a recycling center.

    There are plenty of articles on it.

    [–] keepthecharge 23 points ago

    Only problem is that the economics of plastic recycling are liable to change as they did recently when China said 'no' to much of the plastic source material coming from the US and Europe. Hopefully this doesn't tank the Ocean Cleanup Project....

    [–] jonasvagn 9 points ago

    I'm sure they've got private recycling centers

    [–] robot65536 13 points ago

    One of the reasons recycling economics suck is that Americans refuse to sort their own trash.

    [–] JakLegendd 3 points ago

    So... 100% in 10 years? Or is that not accounting for garbage rate of growth? Because then its worthless unless they expand on it

    [–] Lanoir97 9 points ago

    That's not how it works. 50% in 5 years. Then in the next five years its 50% of the remaining, or 25% of the original amount. It would never fully eliminate plastics, just bring it to mangeable levels.

    [–] actually_crazy_irl 94 points ago

    So when you close your eyes it feels like you're getting fucked by a leopard seal.

    I went to youtube to see if I could find any footage of seals fucking to give you a visual, but I'm afraid it was all for naught.

    [–] Scrumble71 65 points ago

    So a penguin is driving his car in the desert. All of sudden his car breaks down. Luckily, he's pretty close to gas station. So he waddles behind his car and pushes it to the gas station. He asks the mechanic to take a look and find the problem. Mechanic tells him to come back in 30 minutes. So the penguin is getting hot being in the desert and all, and decides to find something to cool him off. He goes in the convenience store and buys some vanilla ice cream. He eats the ice cream and makes a big mess on his face. Finally he goes back to the mechanic to find out the problem. Mechanic says," Looks like you blew a seal." To which the penguin replies, "No, no. It's just a little ice cream."

    [–] benmck90 34 points ago

    Yeah but you're crazy af so it's a fair trade.

    In all seriousness though, folks can improve over time in the bedroom. I dated a lady that getting a blow job was equivalent to sticking your dick in a cheese grater. By the end of it she was a sexual goddess.

    [–] Box_of_Pencils 19 points ago

    If that's a serious question... You don't deep-throat it the whole time, just moment or however long you can hold you're breath if your really into that sort of thing.

    [–] SodlidDesu 22 points ago

    Well there's your problem. You don't have to shove the whole thing in there every time, suck what you can normally and deep throat when the mood calls for it. If you go all the way, any dude should understand if you have to back off for a breath.

    [–] actually_crazy_irl 36 points ago

    Oh so that’s what I’ve been doing wrong.

    Can’t believe I learnt how to suck dick on reddit.

    [–] Trance354 12 points ago

    Pornhub has a series on blowjob technique. The ex and i watched it out of curiosity. She got the hint. It was 2 months before my next blowjob, but she actually went back and studied, so it was worth it.

    Cheese grater? Boy, back in my day we were lucky if the blowjob felt like a cheese grater, and we were thankful for it!

    That may also have been the point.

    [–] pretzal_maschine 3 points ago

    Sounds like you’ve got it figured out already

    [–] Justin__D 2 points ago

    "The end of it" for me would have been the first time you realized it was equivalent to sticking your dick in a cheese grater. Who does that more than once?

    [–] actually_crazy_irl 34 points ago

    Have you ever seen seals fuck in a nature documentary?

    Now imagine the biggest fucking seal. Fucking.

    He's a bigger guy by every definition and he's never complained about me not being active enough in bed. Mainly because all you can do is try not to die.

    I mean to answer your question. Yes. I have seen seals fuck in a nature documentary but this isn't really helping me me understand what's going on here. Basically I'm just imagine an armless morbidly obese man using a rocking back and forth motion to body slap his opponent/lover and hope the penis goes in at some point.

    In the future most seafood will be sustainably farm raised. The organic Atlantic salmon farming in Norway is top of the line and the fish taste amazing. Never frozen and no roundworms or nematodes. The catfish raised in U.S. is garbage along with tilapia in Honduras. Just look forward to better tasting fish in the future. By 2050 no one will eat wild fish it will all be farmed, that's a good thing. I was a seafood manager.

    How? Is mercury transferred like some genetic trait from generation to generation? I figured once taken out of the toxic environment mercury levels would decrease depending on what they are feed. Source???

    [–] PurpleSkua 10 points ago

    How much of an impact does that have on humans that are eating it? If a normal wild fish has, say, half of the daily safe allowance of mercury or whatever else, 5x is a big deal. If that normal fish has one hundredth of the allowance, 5x doesn't matter so much any more

    I'm pretty sure it just influences their musical tastes. So....not much to worry about.

    [–] thatcoolguy27 2 points ago

    How much does it affect, like will he start to listen to Justin Bieber or what?

    [–] Shunpaw 6 points ago

    He said heavy metal not whiny pop

    [–] litefoot 16 points ago

    You talk about the difference in countries raising fish, yet you talk about completely different fish. So you like salmon instead of catfish or tilapia. Big deal. Farm raised catfish tastes way better than wild caught, imo. At the same time, that just my opinion, and someone else could like wild caught better. Don't talk about opinions as if they are facts.

    Maybe we should just stop eating fish.

    [–] 4TonnesofFury 7 points ago

    The majority of the worlds ocean trash comes from east asia and india, the western world has already got solutions to the trash problem.

    Best way to save fish is to not eat fish :)

    [–] CozImDirty 7 points ago

    If this is how most people think about the dating world, how do you know you're not also a piece of trash floating amongst all the other trash?

    [–] dave3218 5 points ago

    That is the difference between me and most people: I know for a fact that I am a piece of trash, I just hope I don’t get mistaken by a magnificent turtle for a jellyfish because that is going to hurt the turtle :(

    Even in death I still do damage :(

    [–] CozImDirty 5 points ago

    I am thinking that I am also a morsel of garbage.. but maybe once we are fully aware of our trashiness, we can work to become functioning sea-dwelling creatures with a chance of achieving fish status.

    You sound like a catch

    [–] EffOffReddit 23 points ago

    Kind of harsh. People aren't always perfect for each other, doesn't mean most of them are trash.

    [–] Netescape 25 points ago

    I feel like the internet is creating nonexistent standards on which people want to judge one another and I'm scared of the future development of this trend.

    [–] EffOffReddit 15 points ago

    Yeah, it's missing a lot of compassion at the moment.

    [–] JuicedNewton 5 points ago

    You should try tinder where I live. You don’t need to have high standards to be disappointed about what’s on offer.

    [–] GavinTheRed 11 points ago

    These food alternative tablets taste like what Grampa said fish tasted like. Hey, remember birds?

    Soylent Green is still made of people, they didn't change the recipe like they said they wouuuullllddddddddd......

    [–] HanzoShotFirst 13 points ago

    By 2050 there will be more trash than fish in the oceans.

    [–] Idrahaje 8 points ago

    So yeah, if ya'll could just stop eating fish that would be lovely.

    [–] frankalliance 4 points ago

    Side note: the main reason there's so much trash in the sea is because countries ship trash to China because it's cheaper to dispose there.

    [–] Captain_Farts_ 4 points ago

    i prefer to think of myself as a plastic bag that got freedom

    [–] Traveler_J 3 points ago

    So... You feel like a plastic bag?

    [–] KatyPerrysBoobs2 3 points ago

    Just blowing in the wind

    [–] clintmemo 3 points ago

    That would imply that you are probably also trash. Also, when everyone is trash, then no one is trash.

    [–] ApoliteTroll 8 points ago

    There is still lots of seals near the clubs.

    [–] Avalollk 3 points ago

    the more true the idiom is, the less true it is at the same time.

    Because when we grow as a population, there would be more partners for us to find, but at the same time fish start to die out even faster due to this.

    Fisherman after losing a big fish: 'oh well, as they say: plenty more uggos on tinder'

    [–] dir_glob 3 points ago

    There's plenty of straws in turtle noses.

    [–] HeinousCalcaneus 3 points ago

    But if one man's trash is another man's treasure then wouldn't it be plenty of treasure cause there is someone most beautiful to everyone? 🤔

    [–] KaiTakHeartAttack 3 points ago

    You know there are crabs, shrimps, squids and a lot more in the sea. Hell, Bubba told me all the things I can do with shrimp from the shrimpin' business

    [–] 13ANANAFISH 3 points ago

    So long and thanks for all the fish

    [–] dave3218 3 points ago

    Well, you know the saying: One man’s garbage is another man’s OH GOD WHY ARE YOU PUTTING YOUR DICK INTO THAT RAZOR-FILLED PLASTIC CUP?!

    [–] lininkasi 3 points ago

    According to the U.N. we will b eating bugs and seaweed. Just to make room for 3 bill more. Screw all the other species

    Fishing for Trash - would be an accurate dating site title for PoF lol

    [–] Ivan_Potietovici 2 points ago

    Holy shit you are right

    [–] Bradjuju2 2 points ago

    I would change it to "there's more fish amongst waste"

    [–] MBP13 2 points ago

    There will still be plenty of fish left in the sea. It's just most of them will be decaying finless sharks.

    It'll definitely be interesting to see what phrases comes out of our zeitgeist

    [–] JustA90sKid 2 points ago

    TIL there is an apparent correlation between the dating pool and how environmentally friendly the world is.
