"That you and I have nothing that we can agree on." Nobody can agree with that.


theguyfromerath

"I have nothing that I can agree with any person" on the other hand works better I think.


Reasonable_Tale1248

I'm a doughnut earther, i guess no one agrees with me, at least not till today


JadedbutFaded

Doughnut tell me who to agree with!


Sunsailor76

I'll tell you what to dough. There's a hole in your story.


kangarooInt

I can agree


Verunum

I've seen this one before so yeah there's at least one or two out there with you


Masty9

Sounds delicious. I'm in.


Ti2738

Enlighten me on the physics of that?


xkcloud

Have you ever played Civilization? Where if you head far enough west you end up east, and when you head far enough north you'd end up at the bottom of the map? Basically that.


[deleted]

The earth is a Torus idea appeared in 2008.


theguyfromerath

Someone else can agree that you and I have nothing we can agree though.


aSmallCanOfBeans

Let's agree to disagree


Aromatic_Book_1136

I mean anyone can agree with that, it's just that it's not true anymore


[deleted]

Theoretically they can, practically they can not.


Sungus-Wabungus

You underestimate the polarization of American politics


[deleted]

I do


letswritesomeshet

Gödel is typing...


bjiatube

That's just a constructed contradiction though. The meat of it can still be true.


BeeerGutt

Every single person on this planet owes me $1,000 payable immediately.


dadOwnsTheLibs

Feel like a partner or family might agree as they could reap benefits


Linvael

That would mean they owe the $1000 too, agreeing means they're down that immediately and only reap benefits if enough other people agree (which, they probably won't).


dadOwnsTheLibs

They can agree with it without having to live by it or rather they might agree that it has to be enforced as well


Linvael

Uh... I don't see how you can believe that and not live by that. If you don't want to pay right now by definition you don't agree that you have to pay right now. You might hold a similar opinion - "if large enough amount of people do owe him that money I do too", but it's distinctly different belief.


mrchaddavis

We have a word for it- "hypocrisy". If you haven't noticed, it is quite prevalent.


dadOwnsTheLibs

Do you believe that unnecessarily killing/harming animals is wrong? Are you vegan? I’m sure there’s several people who would answer yes to the top one and no to the bottom one, myself kinda included. People’s actions often don’t align with their beliefs


Ghostglitch07

I believe I need to get up for work right now, yet I'm on reddit.


WonderfulAirport4226

That's not an opinion, thats a fact.


BeeerGutt

Pay up then 😉


WonderfulAirport4226

Only if you pay me 1,000 dollars.


DOTHEDEW11111222

Ah yes the negotiator.


solarpropietor

I got your 1,000.00. Zimbabwe dollars right here! Just let me know where to send!


BeeerGutt

Shall I just give you my credit card number and all my personal information so you can make the deposit?


Force3vo

Here is a Namibian prince. I also need your data, maybe you just post them in this thread so everybody knows where to send the money.


pramit57

It's okay, I'm a millionaire in zimbabwe


Dycoth

You may have one very close friend or a very close family member who might be ready to give you that sum


theguyfromerath

But not because they agree they owe him that sum


Baddie_69420

i agree


ErusTenebre

Well I believe everyone owes me exactly one dollar to show this BeeerGutt guy where he can shove his accounting skills.


lhommealenvers

I agree, but I'm only paying after everyone else does


BringBackNachoFries

Venmo or CashApp?


Danithejetplane

That's not an opinion


[deleted]

Someone could answer: Yes I agree on this, but I can't do it. So theoretically yes, practically not.


JustALocalJew

If you are a minority some suburban white girl would agree with you. She won't pay you, but she will agree with you.


sysnickm

That isn't an opinion, that is a statement of fact. It's false, but still not an opinion.


Ladinus_was_taken

There is! I think my family's parrot is terrible. Since my family likes him, they disagree, and since no one else knows the parrot, they can't agree or dissagree.


J0taa

I hate your parrot for the simple fact that it’s a parrot so I agree with you.


Southcoaststeve1

Anyone can agree or disagree but their opinion, in my opinion, would be meaningless. Just like most opinions about politics. People uniformed so hence can easily be misinformed, have opinions and act on them and soon we will have more electric vehicles than power generation to support them.


murdeoc

They can say they dis/agree but can not actually have an opinion without knowing the subject of that opinion.


Southcoaststeve1

Not to be pedantic but here’s the definition: “o·pin·ion noun a view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.”


Caroniver413

I can agree, since I think most birds are awful!


can_u_pm_ur_tits_plz

Birds aren't real


mlc885

We're assuming the vet is more empathetic than you? Because it's at least *possible* that the vet or a veterinary assistant also thinks your parrot is a jerk.


TheRedPandaisback

I like your parrot, because you hate him, and I hate you, because I’m a spiteful Redditor


Verdict_US

What if I hate all parrots, and therefore don't need to know yours to hate it?


Cartographer_MMXX

Disney didn't ruin Star Wars 7, 8, 9. It almost hurt to type that.


AWT23

I truly think the sequels would be looked back to like the prequel of 9 didn’t fuck everything up


BohdyP

Instead they were too afraid to build on 8ths story because their dumb-ass strategy was to make their movies reactionary to what the audience thought of the last movie.


J0taa

I agree with this opinion and I’m not saying that just to be a smart ass. Star Wars is not ruined by these movies. Are they cheesy? Sure. Are they a fun watch? I think so.


Confident_Gas8462

I’ll make it better. The only good Star Wars movies were the Disney sequels.


clothesline

You're right, it was nice to see more minorities share the screen


Acrobatic-Secret374

I should be Tyrant of Earth. You know nothing about me or how I would rule. (Hint: violently)


Acrobatic_Lead2578

Eh, violence is an under-rated solution to problems. I'd vote for you if only to see something different. Also, we have similar usernames so that's another point in your favor.


Acrobatic-Secret374

Goddamnit. And, while violence may be an underrated solution to problems, no one has applied it the way I would. And... It wouldn't be pretty, that's for sure.


Acrobatic_Lead2578

The world is already pretty ugly so how much worse could it get? I'm still 100% voting for you on the name similarity alone so you really can't talk me out of this. lol Long reign King/Queen Acrobatic-Secret374!


Umpteenth_zebra

Monarch


Southcoaststeve1

Ah Royalty, Violence, intrigue sounds like a nefilix theme!


Explore-PNW

I’m on your bandwagon and I’m not sure why. +1 for u/acrobatic-secret374!


Acrobatic-Secret374

Well... I guess I have a fan club, apparently.


AdvonKoulthar

I share that opinion, but *I* should be Tyrant of Earth


theguyfromerath

I'll support you my dude.


CoatieAnimatesStuff

We are simultaneously the best and worst things to happen to this planet. Edit: To the people saying they disagree with me, that's the entire reason I wrote this comment. To get you guys to disagree with me. Shouldn't you be looking for r/woooosh? Because that's the sound of the punchline flying over your heads.


Rly_Shadow

*The dinosaurs would like to know your location*


CoatieAnimatesStuff

America


Cartographer_MMXX

You're right, because America is only one of those things, and it's not the best.


mlc885

bird law


LieutenantCrash

We're neither


CoatieAnimatesStuff

Exactly


mlc885

Like, *real* opinions? Because if we count theoretical opinions then I'm pretty sure there's nobody else who wants me to be god-king.


Stebsis

I do.


mlc885

Aw <3


[deleted]

there is "i am you" ​ clean and pure and true 100% nope for everyone on the planet, even twins ;P


MetalPoe

In a metaphorical sense Someone will agree. It’s just a very abbreviated version of _you remind me of myself when I was younger_.


[deleted]

no thats not "you are me" its a logical statement that never can be true, dont matter what other "feel" or "think" about ​ same as 2 cannot be 1 and 0 all integer ;P ​ why you think its named "individual"? its not dividable ;P


murdeoc

As you explain, it's a logical statement. Therefore not an opinion.


MetalPoe

It doesn’t matter if it can be true or not, the only thing that matters is that someone might agree. Also, you have your understanding of the statement, but that doesn’t mean someone else will get it. People can agree to a statement if they didn’t understand it properly. Also, also: _I am you_ in your statement is not an opinion, but rather a factual statement, in which case it doesn’t apply to OP‘s showerthought at all.


oO0Kat0Oo

The shower thought didn't say anything about being right or wrong with the agreement or disagreement. Just that it couldn't happen. It happened. Whether it's logical or not is irrelevant.


aaaarrrrggghhh

I agree tho, you are me.


[deleted]

then i will transfer all my money to.. my self.. :thinkingface:


divanguy

The thing is: not even you believe that.


DigitalMindShadow

Plenty of people hold spiritual beliefs that we are all one. Hell, I've had some pretty visceral experiences along those lines myself.


crookedman11

Not for someone who believes in The Egg theory.


barberererer

We came from chickens?


crookedman11

Nope lol ~The entire universe was created as an egg for the main character (all of humanity), and once you have lived every human life ever, you will be born as a god. The reason God created the universe was for the main character, you, to understand this point: "Every time you victimized someone...you were victimizing yourself. Every act of kindness you’ve done, you’ve done to yourself. Every happy and sad moment ever experienced by any human was, or will be, experienced by you."~ There is also a video on it by Kurzgesagt. Its called The Egg. I highly recommend it.


_ALH_

I assure you that you can find someone that happily agrees with that though. Probably quite a few of them. Many of them might at the time be quite high on LSD or psilocybin, but there's probably a lot of people who will agree on religious grounds too.


Realmofthehappygod

But you are me? At least in my opinion...


Caroniver413

And this is a gun


its_all_4_lulz

How about you take the anxiety disorder and get the fuck out of me


Want_to_do_right

Similarly, "I am not here"


Lokyyo

I think we can all agree that Morbius is the best movie of all time


VileHistory

I am dead, not being a zombie or anything like that, as I type this.


pleasechooseausernme

That’s not an opinion, that’s a (false) statement of fact


Z0OMIES

Interestingly there is a rare disease that leads patients to believe they are dead, meaning it could theoretically be their belief and therefore their opinion that they are dead while posting on reddit. (Not to burst your bubble but just to add to the convo) For anyone curious it’s Cotard's syndrome


Rly_Shadow

You should be so literal. Maybe he meant metaphorically


VileHistory

It's my opinion that I m dead


lhommealenvers

Since I don't know you and this comment has been typed 3 hours ago, it seems possible to me that you might be dead by now.


Deez0fNuts

Snow is real-! Wait, idiotic TikToker doesn’t think so. I hate being Gen Z.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Apprehensive_Pea3217

If someone doesn't agree with this opinion, your opinion it's true, but not for who doesn't agree. Sir, yours is a paradoxical opinion.


chrys-anthe-mum

I am the smartest person to ever exist and I can barely do math, for the record. Boom


hansdegans_5

I could agree with you, doing math doesn't mean you are smart.


Holy_hell_Im_stond

There is alternatively no opinion that everyone can agree with either. Good ol' Sinners Gambit. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.


JRaikoben

I think I'm a better basket player than Michael Jordan and a better football player than Lionel Messi. Imo, I could also beat Mike Tyson in the ring.


hiker2go

Are there people out there that hate toaster strudels and pizza rolls? If so, I've never met one!!!


clothesline

Yeah rich people with educated palates


PTJT

Of course someone could disagree with it that’s how opinions work


Devreckas

I am the only conscious being in the universe. The rest of you are just mindless automata.


Sorvick

Not everyone in the world believes James Cordon should go sit in a corner and quit trying to pretend to do comedy?


clothesline

My grandma enjoys him


Roboroman2

And the funny thing is that there is definitely someone out there who disagrees with this


hakkitakkie

There is. You can be schizophrenic and see the world in a particular way that literally nobody else agrees with, for however long your hallucination or delusional view lasts. You can also be a scientist who discovers a shatteringly counter intuitive truth about the universe which no one else can get behind because established theories contradict it. Until finally decades of research confirm it to be true anyway.


Dirty_Gurdy

I should be the ruler of the entire universe and every living thing should bend to my will or die. 100% nobody agrees with that


Danithejetplane

Well, since we call opinion something which you can agree or disagree with I think this is true by definition.


xNATiiVE

There is no opinion that absolutely no-one can lie about agreeing with.


Humannumber700000026

This is very interesting that people can convince themselves that they agree with anything.


Humannumber700000026

How about "everything bad is good"? How would someone justify agreeing with that?


no0neiv

I know for absolute certain that I "exist". No one else can be absolutely certain about that, for anyone but themselves, so they can't absolutely agree that I "exist".


Grzechoooo

There could be, theoretically. You know those singular families in Siberia that lived alone for decades, without any other human contact? Imagine a family like that, made up of two people - a wife and husband - who love each other dearly. So the husband thinks his wife is the most lovely person in the world, while the wife thinks her husband is the most lovely person in the world. Since nobody else knows them, nobody else agrees with either, and they disagree with each other.


AgentAwesome2008

I feel like if anyone thinks I’m attractive they’d be the only one


lookitsafish

I think I should have all the money in the world and be the king and everyone else gets nothing but hard labor.


Maithius

"Let's agree to disagree" "I don't agree to that!" "Me neither!"
