Share Your Shower Thoughts

 Pages 1 2 3 4 5 6 NEXT
 

For some fun, share those random thoughts and questions that just pop into your head as you're standing in the shower and your mind wanders to leave your body to its manual and intimate task of scrubbing away the filth and sin from itself. Who knows? Maybe someone here will weigh in with some rationality ibefore you invest your life savings into building that better mouse trap. Here's mine for today:

How do super heroes who can fly and are unnaturally strong stay in such superior physical shape? As far as I'm aware, building muscle requires resistance and a constant focus on exceeding personal limits; what is Superman lifting and on how rigorous a workout schedule if his signature abilities are flight and beyond superhuman strength? Wouldn't he need to bench like a small mountain about 4 times a week for pecs like that? What benefit would a set of push-ups have if the defiance of gravity is basically what his body does? And for comparison's sake, the strongest normal people in the world can't throw the most weight they can lift the length of a football field, so if the Hulk can throw a multi-ton bus, I'm guessing it's not quite anywhere near the upper limits of his strength. I'm just saying, the Marvel and DC universes should be rife with dad bods and saggy boobs unless they frequent a gym near a black hole or something.

I said "Shower Thoughts," not "Soon To Be In A Prison Shower Thoughts."

My breakfast Hot Pocket would like a word with you.

If you know even a tiny bit about something, you probably know more about that thing than most people in the world.

I said "Shower Thoughts," not "Soon To Be In A Prison Shower Thoughts."

If life is a prison, yes.

"Where the heck did ObisdianJones buy his waterproof tablet?"

"Once I'm out of the shower I'm going to start work on a fun little browser game I have been thinking of for months now... 😁"

The moment I actually get out of the shower; I'm tired, don't have the energy to start any new projects... 😶

The vast majority of us were already "inside" at the time

Saelune:

That rings true for everyone, including the ones for whom their "tiny bit" is infinitesimally tinier than they're wiling to admit to themselves least of all anyone else.

CaitSeith:
"Where the heck did ObisdianJones buy his waterproof tablet?"

I've personally zipped up my smart phone in a zip-lock bag and taken it in the shower with full functionality and without issue. Cheap, easy, effective and, most importantly, entirely at your own risk.

Xprimentyl:

Technically hot pockets are a pie

If Luck isn't real, but stats and probability are... isn't there a statistical probability that there's one person who always misses the percent threshold of success?

That's a random allotment in life. Other than the complete dismissal of anything not science based in the current societal consciousness, isn't that the definition of bad luck?

CaitSeith:
"Where the heck did ObisdianJones buy his waterproof tablet?"

I EXPLAINED this. EXPLAINED IT.

Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet

You will listen this time!

But for serious, I've said before that I don't recommend it. I literally only use it for the bathroom. It's slowed way the hell down. It freezes sometimes just to freeze. I hit google and I wait like five seconds for it to actually load sometimes.

How did the Statue of Liberty get onto that beach at the end of Planet of the Apes? Did the sea recede enough for there to a straight shot to what was once Liberty Island? Did it get moved by the apes and eventually abandoned? These questions keep me awake at night...

So, just recently rewatched Captain Marvel. Not a major spoiler but... I got a burned last time with insignifact spoilers

Alright, mister creepy invasive data collector...I'll share my most intimate naked musings, if only because the level of vulnerability required is no different from socialising with nasty invasive humans any other day. But be warned, they might be a heady mixture of disturbing mundanity and deathly boredom.

# Shit, why are you ringing now with these chronically moist limbs and a towel conveniently out of reach??

# If I got a turtle, would it be weird if I showered or bathed with it?

# Is it ok to be a hypocrite if you hate yourself?

# Nitrogen gas should be cheaper.

# Does living in an area with heavy limescaled water compensate for any absence of calcium in your diet?

# If I were to be stabbed here, there isn't much room to get comfortable for the bleeding out.

# Ow, what the fuck, you fucking idiot! (Slipped over in shower, lost in thought)

# If one could actually freeze time apart from themselves, would all light just stop? Making you blind unless you move your eyes into fresh, floaty frozen photons? Would gravity stop? The air...what about the air?!

# *sings mournful tune*

# *sings upbeat tune*

# *sings horrid tune that should have no reason to be stuck in head*

# That is a brilliant thought! I must write it down after shower and definitely not forget it beforehand like the last 1000 times.

# Was that meowing or yet more brain noise?

# Wait...what was that idea again?

# Must remember not to post personal thoughts online anymore. They're closing in, can feel it. Tracking your every move.

# Everyone will abandon you.

# No they won't! I have a dungeon now. And a fancy selection of mini cakes.

# Alright, getting bored of this. Should probably also stop posting online while in the shower to be fair.

How did the inheritance issue get resolved for the returned 3 billion people in the aftermath of Avengers:Endgame?

I'd probably be pretty pissed if I came back from the dead to find my beneficiary had taken my RSP & pension payout, remarried and used the funds on a down payment.

That's just Superman's out of shape body. Superman needs to be careful not to actually ever work out or else he would become such a mass of horrendously deformed bulging muscles that would make the most roided out body builder look like they don't even lift.

It was probably thrown there by the bombs when they blew it up. The maniacs.

Off topic, but now that Overwatch will be on Switch, if Lucio were to get a skin based on a Nintendo character, what character would you want it to be based on? Luigi or Yoshi because of green? Maybe a Rhythm Heaven character because music?

That's cheating, you supposed to make your own

I also realised I was just nitpicking before so...

We live at the bottom of the ocean. So... Is space counted as an ocean, that's on top of the ocean of air, that's on top of the ocean of water? Which pretty much makes the ground another ocean, one that we can't move through

If big business paid their share of tax, the tax rate would go down (the government has a set amount of money they looking for. If they paid, the rate would be so high.) If they paid thier workers well, the tax rate would go down (reduction in the need for welfare.) If they spent money to make sure their product was safe for consumption, the tax rate would go down (less need for regulation.) If they stopped dodging tax, the tax rate would go down (less need to chase them down, so IRS would be smaller, as would courts and law enforcement.) Do they realise they are making the government bigger? The money they spent trying to dodge tax would be enough to pay their tax. And they'd keep the saved money anyway.

Porn stars are just prostitutes with extra steps.

most of my shower thoughts were on unpopular opinion threads and in the wild west

The problem with us people in general, is that we think in short term profits and instant satisfaction. Most problems would be solved if we applied long term goals and solutions.

Someone asked me why I prefer Superheroes over Villains when I said I don't care about movies like the Joker or Super Villains. It's because the self concern of a villain is so common, it's basically our every day lives. I want to go to escape, live in a world where people put others above themselves.

If I want to see people put their needs over literally everyone else... hell, I have the news. I'll just turn it on at any time.

Lucio is easily one of my favorite characters in all of the 2000's. From personality to design. I never tire of him, therefore I haven't thought of skins at all.

And best of all, hopefully there will be little to no chat in the Switch Version, so I don't have to deal with the toxicity.

Oof. I hear that. I've fallen off of LoL because I just got burned out on having to deal with other people being toxic and having to deal with me getting frustrated.

I love persons, but I hate people.

You know what, this leads me to my Bed Thought.

We're a Gaming Forum. Why don't we play games together? Like, I'm sure one or two people play games with each other regularly. But we really don't seem to game that much together.

That sounds a little Marxist...

He'd be even better if nobody pretended he's Brazilian.

ObsidianJones:

Don't you mean 2010s?

'I hope we get some more rain to fill up the tanks so I can spend longer playing with myself in the shower.'

Hawki:

Don't you mean 2010s?

Obsidian has low expectations for the rest of the millennium.

I mean since the 2000's started. New Millennium and all that.

I can't possibly write down my shower thoughts, because my thoughts go all over the place in the shower, and I can think of like 12 different topics from "recreating that scene from a game in my head" to "arguing out loud with myself about that potential Friend Drama that might resurface" to "I will now dissect the entire game design of this thing I'm playing/making" or "I will talk out loud to organize my thoughts for explaining to a friend how PSO2 works for when it comes NA-side in the spring"

And like 5 minutes after I leave the shower I forget whatever I was thinking about.

The joys of being an ADD-ridden Aspie. XD

Or perhaps just, you know, be not righteous and try lifting Mjolnir?

Anyways on topic, my shower thoughts are usually too preoccupied with stupid song lyrics or details of whatever video game I'm playing to wax philosophical, but I do have this nifty thread mascot for thematic relevance if that helps -

Probably because the above would ultimately happen lol. But additionally, the idea of syncing enough people's schedules and actually wanting to play the same games at the same time is cause for some consternation. There's just too much going in general that can be conflicting it seems usually.

I mean, I don't think we can ever game together as one forum. Even trying to game in Overwatch (a thought of mine) took a lot of coordination... But it was fun while we were doing it. That was also more that the Overwatch servers kind of sucked.

But there's a few of us who have Remnant from the Ashes. I know I'm not the only one with Smash. We got fighting game fans here. I'm sure someone like sports games*. I don't know. We have a pool of talent we're not tapping into.

*Sidebar Random Shower Thought! I don't get sports games. If I want to play football, I'll go out and enjoy football. I play Left4Dead because there are no actual infected to shoot.
