Photos That Will Tickle Your Brain in a Good Way

Share on Facebook

If you have an internet connection, you’re overstimulated. Sorry, that’s just a fact. There’s so much news, music, Youtube videos, and photos of babies coming in on a daily basis that it can feel hard to ever relax. Everything is just too interesting! And to paraphrase Buddy from The Incredibles, when everything is interesting? Nothing is.

That’s why some of the best images are images that are only mildly interesting. You can take them in, go “huh, that’s kind of interesting,” and move on with your day. It’s actually very refreshing!

Reddit’s /r/mildlyinteresting subreddit is a haven for these types of images. They’re just intriguing enough to tickle your brain, but not so intriguing you’ll have to spend the rest of the day researching them like they were some convoluted Harry Potter theory. In terms of things you can see on the internet, these mildly interesting images really are the best of both worlds.

Now that’s problem-solving.
