Pictures of unstirred paint might be the most soothing thing on the internet


I dunno if you’ve noticed, but there’s a lot of bad stuff on the internet, isn’t there? The other day I saw a picture of a jar containing a My Little Pony model, which a man has been – how do I phrase this gently – doing a big wank into every day for like a year. He then accidentally left it all on a radiator and it boiled. It was quite bad, I didn’t like it.

It’s things like this, a My Little Pony cum jar, that make you feel really grateful when you come across a nice, wholesome corner of the internet. Somewhere that exists purely to calm your nerves at the end of a tough day. Somewhere like r/unstirredpaint – Reddit’s home for one of the best little internet niches, which does literally what it says on the tin.

Pictures of unstirred paint. They’re mesmerising, in the exact opposite way a jar full of My Little Pony cum is mesmerising. I’ll stop talking about that now, I promise. You could spend a good hour just scrolling through these photos and you’d have a great time. Look, here:
