I just thought it would be cute to see what you rascals looked like when you were little, and maybe if you wanna add a current pic for comparison! Here's mine to start off...

That's me on the right wrapping myself in what appears to be a table doily, clutching what I believe are my favorite sun glasses...

And here's a picture from a couple weeks ago in the Ketchikan bay, Alaska.

I spent my teens alternating between modeling and completely losing my shit. I have no idea why a picture that was uploaded to Facebook in 2007 has a timestamp of 2009 on it.


Adult image is also attached I guess

Pretty rough contribution but it's all I had on this PC. Mom's house would yield some of the truly embarrassing shit. Awesome idea for a thread @Cornelius Vango

As y'all can see, it's a pretty obvious descent into utter madness, and I wouldn't have it any other way. ::finger::::drinkingbuddy::

Really rad posts. I'm sorry I no longer have photos of me as a kid, but it was basically little MJ if he had already bleached his skin by the age of 9

damn i LOVED having friends. every single friend i have had during my youth has either moved away or up and out of the economic class (the biggest issue i have had) we were in as kids. some did turn to drugs while others became very wealthy. i just stayed pretty much around average. they were great people and great times in summer 1994 and 1995, high school in brooklyn, ny!

i am holding the gameboy

Man that's the worst when all your friends get wealthy isn't it? Most of mine just die. Hey nice beamer and stylish guess brand jeans though!
they didn't all get wealthy. one did (he is the executive vice president for bear sterns in the legal dept. for the entire company; he had studied securities law) whilst another rode his coattails to get a cushy job in the company. another opened up his own nightclub, first in russia, and now in miami. he is the owner and the dj there. most others went into IT tech support or some kind of IT work. another one is a real estate agent. another is a professional gambler (not on tv). one (loved that kid) named donny is dead. he died at 21 or so on a motorcycle in an accident on the highway. as a teenager, i loved doing wild stunts with him of all kinds on bikes, skateboards, and just having fun that young teenage boys enjoy. sucks he is gone.

i tried reaching out but about 99% of them would rather not look back and say hi. i suppose as they have all aged as have i, they are now more suspicious of people in general, even if we were high school friends for years at one point. one more thing about me that they really don't care nor share: i just like being with someone i like. that's it. no need for dinner or chasing some kind of goal. i just like being present with someone or a few buds and just chatting and enjoying each other's company. i have found that they all find this somewhat boring and pointless.

the WORST part about these pics that hurts me the most is that when i was unemployed 2 years ago for about 6 months, i was doing awful and i could not call a single one to ask for a job, not money, but a work opportunity.

Ehh, I tried to edit out most of my comment. Felt I was being a dick, but you've caught it in time and quoted it, well played. Just seemed like a strange thing to mention what brand of jeans you're wearing and how stylish they were.. on this site anyway? But looking back that still doesn't call for some smart ass comment, so I apologize for that.

point of mentioning the jeans was just to compare trends and time-eras. today all the young kids wear tight jeans. baggy jeans are way out. it's just a little detail i remember. i actually (today in my life) wear nothing with logos and even get them removed at the tailor. i am not joking. i like everything simple and plain. i am not that showoff type of guy. i was under peer-influence at that age and didn't know myself well but pointing out that i was a crowd-follower may make readers understand how similar we are/were. like i said, i just like good company. nothing more.
