You should stab the guy right in front of you in the back with this knife you just bought.

Stab stab stab

Mostly "I am a failure and will always be," "I am so depressed," "I hate myself," and "I want to die." I have a lot of other negative thoughts, but those four are the really intrusive ones.

"Pull out of law school and become a hermit."

That thought could still win at this point.

"I could just drop / crush / stab this valuable object / precious living thing I hold dear / valuable object containing this precious living thing I hold dear, and no one could stop me."

Weirdly, this type is always at its worst peak after the opportunity has just passed to do the thing I would absolutely never consciously do, not in the moment.

I should just whip my penis out and masturbate all over this bus.


Oh come on! We all have had that thought.

Pretty sure non-penis-people would disagree.

As for my own, I know those "I could easily destroy/kill this" thoughts. The kind of power every individual has is really pronounced to me in those moments.

Far more annoying is when my brain goes "Oh, you're close to orgasm? Here's your mother/sister/best friend/etc, enjoy!"

Praise Jesus, especially when it's sunny outside because Jesus would totally be cool with you praising while you get a nice tan.

Mostly worrying about things. Something is going to wrong today. Something is going to go wrong, like, right now. Something is already going wrong and I just haven't noticed it yet.

Either that or just a stream of angry profanity.

When I visited the Golden Gate Bridge, it was fantastic to see/walk on such an iconic landmark. It was not fantastic to have my brain full of "JUMP JUMP JUMP JUMP".

Almost everything in this thread so far, but also: “What’s the stupidest, most nonsensical or horrifying thing to do in this situation? I should do or say exactly that.” (This may or may not include saying blatantly offensive things to people whom I otherwise have no desire to offend.)

Those horribly awkward things you said or did 15+ years ago? Everyone whose opinion you ever cared about knows. And they still remember all of them.

"I could easily run over that pedestrian and/or their stupid cat" (I wouldn't even think of running over a dog), or "I can drive this off a cliff/bridge and take my passengers with me", which is why I try to drown my thoughts by listening to podcasts or audiobooks while on the road.

"Don't tell those kids they're adopted", "Don't tell the police officers who pulled you over for seemingly no reason that their mom's a two bit whore, or a whore of any kind. In fact, don't bring anyone's mother into this", and basically every version of don't say the most inappropriate thing you can say at any given moment. This used to be much worse when I drank, and it's also why I don't get high.

And boobs. But I don't have a workaround for that, it's just something I have to live with.
