The best ideas strike at the most inopportune times. Usually those ideas are gone forever, floating somewhere in a collective mental abyss with all of the world-saving inventions and meme-worthy sayings no one will ever know existed.
For the few ideas that people remember, there’s Reddit’s r/showerthoughts. Showerthoughts is “a subreddit for you to share all those thoughts, ideas or philosophical questions that race through your head when in the shower.”
And if you think you’re the only one dreaming about opening a bar, or starting a brewery, or contemplating the life of beer while in the shower, you’re wrong.
