6 Showerthoughts from Reddit to make you say 'hmm'

Social Studies: Reddit is like the Wild West of the internet, but one subreddit called Showerthoughts always has something interesting to ponder.

In the age of instant everything, it's nice to stop and think for a while. Those looking for some deep moments might want to head to Reddit.

That's right, hidden among subreddits on everything from World News to GIFs, is one of my favorites. Called Showerthoughts, people come up with "deep thoughts" -- presumably while in the shower -- and share them with the Reddit audience.

Every day, you'll have new shower thoughts that are often surprising, always interesting and at the very least, amusing. So, take a break, maybe put on a shower cap and enjoy a sampling of my favorite Showerthoughts.
