When Snoop Dogg Turns 60, He'll Be 420 In Dog Years

If you aren't already aware of Reddit's 'Showerthoughts' section, then you've been missing out. It's a repository of... well, shower thoughts. In other words, the moments of inspiration that you get from out of the blue, typically in the shower, or, as they put it: "the miniature epiphanies you have that highlight the oddities within the familiar."

Needless to say, it's pure gold - and it's just come up with one of the very best Showerthoughts to date.

Someone on the Internet - and don't all the best sentences start with 'someone on the Internet' - has worked out that, at the age of 60, Snoop Dogg will be 420 in dog years.

Now admittedly there are some shaky maths here, based on the inaccurate theory that' one human year equates to seven in dog years' - in actual fact this is more of a guesstimate and the true equivalent depends upon the breed.

But still, it's pretty cool. One of the joys of Reddit Shower Thoughts is that you don't have to think about them, because someone else has done the difficult part of having the revelation and delivering it to you, so let's have no fact-based nonsense here.

Fact-checking is not something that really helps with this stuff, just print the legend.


On the back of that, another hip-hop themed Showerthought followed, with an un-fact checkable, yet intrinsically true nugget of gold: "The more we play 'Ms. Jackson', the closer Andre 3000 gets to apologising a trillion times."

Since I read this, I haven't been able to listen to Outkast's classic of my childhood without wondering just how many times Ms Jackson has been apologised to in the 18 years since that track came out.

She's probably quite over it by now, especially if Andre 3000 honoured their relationship and her daughter is now getting part of his presumably massive fortune.

For further proof of the subreddit's genius, here are just a few more slices of gold from its pages:

  • "Someone was able to invent the Internet without needing to look anything up on the Internet."
  • "Waiters at restaurants probably wait until your mouth is full to ask if everything is ok with your food, that way all you can do is nod awkwardly and they don't have to listen to your complaints or do anything about them."
  • "'Go to bed, you'll feel better' is the human equivalent of: 'Have you turned it off and on again?'"

So there you go - if you've not heard of Showerthoughts, then thank me later. When you're done wasting the rest of your day at work on it.
