# Showerthoughts

Things that come to mind and looked insightful — but probably aren’t…

I just had a revolutionary idea for a new social media site: no accounts, no moderation, everyone can just write what he wants, when he wants, but nobody can read anything. No bubbles, no drama, no fake news. I call it Shreddit.

All-In-One Printers - they can print, scan, copy, (de-)staple, punch, fax, … if someone were to build a model with a direct to shredder feature, he’d make a fortune from German bureaucracy.

I just had this horrible thought while showering.

What if Twitter did collapse and all the big brands wanted to know how that affects their sales? They run the numbers and find that the loss in revenue is smaller than their combined spending on a social media team, diversity hires and general wokeness.

Elon Musk might be the cure for (internet) cancer…

You call it a spreadsheet, I call it assembler for accountants.

Stupid app ideas #3525: The passive aggressive wake up call.

Ok, daily struggle: the alarm clock goes off, hit snooze, doze off again till the alarm clock goes off, hit snooze,… rince and repeat.

Can’t we make an alarm clock app that just stares at me angrily till I get up?

Isn’t it lovely, how social media always markets itself as the spearhead of free speech, while at the same time giving users voting tools to bury anything that’s not echoing the popular opinion of the platform in question?

Blockchain is not the answer. It is the question and the answer is always: NO!

Come on, it is a no brainer. Even if there was a meaningful application for the technology, it would always mean legitimizing a giant waste of resources/environmental pollution and accepting crypto scams as the cost of operation.

I just had a horrible business idea:

  1. Create a shitty, low effort Android app (dunno, something like a weather widget, horoscope, or calculator knock off).
  2. Publish on Play, let it rot ripen for a couple of months, then buy 100k+ installs (see email spam folder for offers), add some 5* reviews for good measure.
  3. Sell that app to those asshats that keep spamming me about buying my apps for a song.

Yes, those scavengers DO annoy me. Especially when having a disclaimer in their footer, informing me that I received their offer because I subscribed to some mailing list.

Dear Santa, this year, I wish for world peace and a pony Facebook and Twitter to shut down.

What if… social media is actually Santa’s naughty list these days?
