    anecdote: during the pandemic every day seemed the same. i sometimes forgot ro shower for a few days. so i put a water sensor in my shower. when i shower, it starts a macrodroid automation that records the date. another macro plans and reminds me when it’s shower time.

        Yes, I, too, feel very real emotions like a desire to run water over my human skin. I definitely do not require microcontrollers to instruct me on when it is time to do so! Just like all completely normal humans. Of which I am one.

        Not always, I’ll often forget to shower until I look in the mirror and realize my hair needs to be washed. Peak pandemic I’d sometimes go a few weeks without showering until I could smell myself. Just not something that’s on my mind most of the time.

        We have a great macrocontroller, a brain.

        Maybe not as reliable but definitely easier to program.

          Except those times where it just stops writing to log files. Sometimes I’ll be in the shower zoned out and find myself on the last step of my routine without remembering completing any of the steps.

        Nah, they didn’t say anything about implementing voice activation by the command “engage”.

    My shower thoughts are always repeating cycles of “fuuuuuuuck this feels niiiiiiiiice” and “time to turn up the heat a smidge.” Am I doing it wrong?

      I’m in the situation where it’s hot as fuck out (I don’t run the ac) so it’s become the opposite game, how low can I get the temperature.

      Uggggh I’m jealous. The city is working on the civic plumbing for months and basically the work their doing means my on-demand hot water heater barely goes up to “tepid.”

      Don’t get me wrong, I’m thankful for the infrastructure work.

      Maybe I’ll go shower at the gym or a friend’s lol

    Excuse me, but do you know how many people I have to kill to take a shower around here?

      Sir, this is a Wendy’s. You’re not allowed to shower around here. You have to go home to do that.

    I don’t ever have philosophical thoughts in the shower. I just think ordinary things that people usually think of outside the shower. And I shower once a week, so… yeah idk what a “shower thought” is. But I just come here for the philosophy goodness.

      Similarly, people interested in philosophy (and other theoretical stuff) might take a break and think of different things like “but how’s the soap made, anyway?”.

        I’m not one of those people, but it’s interesting how that specifically happens in the shower and not anywhere else.

          It’s usually a place where you’re not bombarding your brain with stimulation all the time, so your brain tries to use the downtime to work with all the information you’ve been putting into it.

          This is actually a big part of learning anything, called diffused learning. Think of how you suddenly get something after a period of rest or not doing anything, some time after you’ve initially focused on a thing for some time - your brain has actually been using the downtime to structure the data and make better sense of it.

          This is also why a lot of people that know how a human brain works suggest mediation and walks, especially without listening to music or podcasts, as well as spending little to no time reading, watching or stimulating your brain in any other way before bed. It needs that time, it’s crucial for development. Journaling helps here, too, because it’s both reflection and somewhat of a downtime.

          Doing chores and not listening to anything counts, too.

          But it’s all easier said than done in this age of constant hunt for one’s attention so they spend more time on your app, giving you more data to sell and more metrics to make the line go up (gotta keep the investors and stakeholders happy, can’t afford to not show constant growth).

    Everyone in this comment section needs to stop what they’re doing and switch to Arch. I use Arch btw. Did you know that you don’t have to regularly take a shower to be allowed to use Arch?
