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.

Please be respectful of others' submissions. Rudeness is unacceptable.


  • All content must be original and unique.
    Submissions that match (or echo similar sentiments to) ideas offered by other people will be removed, regardless of whether or not those ideas have appeared on Reddit. Blatant reposting and plagiarism may result in a ban.»

  • 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. »

  • No jokes, puns, or wordplay. »

  • No "life pro-tips" or advice. »

  • No commentary on Reddit or its functions.
    Ideas for Reddit features should be posted in /r/IdeasForTheAdmins. »

  • No thoughts about politics, social justice, or religion. »

  • Don't be a jerk. »

> Please see the full rules page for a full explanation of each of the preceding rules.

> Exceedingly nonsensical or common thoughts will be removed at the discretion of the moderation team, as will thoughts that are poorly written, overly vulgar, or obscene.

> This subreddit is moderated for quality, which means we remove content that we deem to be low-quality, low-effort, nonsensical, or common/unoriginal. We do not "let the votes decide." We understand this type of policy is controversial and uncommon (especially for a high-traffic subreddit), but we believe it gives /r/Showerthoughts the best chance at maintaining quality.
