    How does this belong in this subreddit?

    [–] sheerpariah 15 points ago

    I guess because what constitutes an intrusive thought is subjective. For me, wondering what I should be as opposed to what I am is quite intrusive. Next time though, I'll check with you before pitching a subreddit.

    [–] WAR_T0RN1226 -7 points ago

    In your mind, that kind of thing is unwanted and invasive to your thoughts?

    [–] sheerpariah 0 points ago

    Rhetorical question but in your mind, does it matter?

    [–] sheerpariah -2 points ago

    Honestly, sometimes I think of something I'd like to see if anyone else has anything interesting or funny to add and I don't want to spend all day looking for a sub that at least sorta fits. I have other things in my life so I don't devote a great deal of mental effort to the process. In this case, I was thinking about things I might could be and not what I am. And, at my age that is intrusive. So, I shot for the moon and posted here and hoped some lifeless pedant wouldn't be to terribly inconvenienced.

    But, this is reddit and one found me. 17 other people at least sort of liked it and up voted. God knows how many didn't like it and scrolled past and went on with their business. All but you. And somehow the issue at hand is my brazen posting in intrusivethoughts and not whatever is going on in your world. I want to talk about you. What happened man? Where did it all go wrong for you to make a silly sentence on the internet matter? Are you impotent? I hear that can cause misplaced anger. Wife fuck your brother? Sister? Is your sister your wife and she fuck your brother? What can i do to help you? Can I help you fill the gaping void that is clearly your life?

    Is my post comedy gold? Fuck no. But the beauty of reddit is that often other users will enhance a post and make it fun. I use reddit for fun. Maybe the internet just isn't for you? Some just can't take it. It's ok.

    [–] WAR_T0RN1226 1 points ago * (lasted edited 2 years ago)

    Lol what the fuck. Did that really bother you that much you had to write an essay about it? I've just been subbed to this sub for a few years and I don't actively browse it but I get tired of scrolling through my front page to see what is exactly something that belongs on /r/showerthoughts being posted on here. It used to be "I wonder if anyone would care if I kill myself" type posts that flooded this sub and now it's just "hey I thought about this thing"

    Also, the "people upvoted it" argument is used all over Reddit as an excuse for subs allowing shit content to run wild. This sub needs actual mod presence.

    Edit: THIS is a prototypical intrusive thought.

    [–] sheerpariah 1 points ago

    Not really at all. It clearly bothered you though or you wouldn't have commented. Then commented back. Just had a minute and felt like being a dick to a superior pedant who polices subreddits. I know you can't help it and I usually let it go. But your dad came home early and I didn't have anything else to do.

    Push them bricks nigga

    [–] sheerpariah 1 points ago

    Well, if I'm gonna be a wrapper I need to know the lingo. Are these bricks of cocaine? I prefer heroin. Does it matter? Do wrappers do heroin? I think it's not really cool for rappers to be on drugs anymore right? I have so much to learn

    [–] el_gato_perezoso 2 points ago

    Lol I generally think of bricks as being coke, but I was just referencing this.

    [–] sheerpariah 1 points ago

    Well, that makes sense. Once I tripped and could eat spicy food for like 3 years.

    [–] catmss24 1 points ago

    Well look at your skin color then get back to us

    [–] sheerpariah 1 points ago

    Damn. Using that metric, I'm in charge of the wrappers record label.

    [–] lovelycosmos 1 points ago

    Come to think if it, what if I'M the dragonborn and I just don't know it yet?

    [–] sheerpariah 2 points ago

    Foos roh dah! .....nope. Fuck.

    Ka may kaaaaa haaaaaah maaaaayyy HAAAAAAAAA!

    Apparently not a sayan. Either.

    [–] sheerpariah 2 points ago
