Yeah, that's how old I was. I was living in Germany with my family for the year, and we (the whole family) traveled all around Europe. We always camped because it was far cheaper than getting a few hotel rooms. But the campgrounds in Italy sucked. No showers for some reason.

That was a freakin' awesome year.

Yeah, it's pretty bad, isn't it?

Those were some awkward times, but it's a genuine picture that captures how much of an awkward adolescent nerd I was then. Still am (a nerd,) but it's not as visible now. Besides, I don't have too many pictures from back then to choose from.

Let's see some more 80s pics folks!

Glatt it proves there's hope for anyone - yes that pic is geeky and nerdy, no point lying - but look at you now

I want a scanner
My sister had some great 80s hair (actually, her hair is still a source of amusement to me & my brother) and I had some terrible 80s glasses.
I chose them at 14 and hated them within a year, but Mum quite rightly refused to buy me another pair ("I told you not to buy red!") I had to wait til I started work at 16, then went straight for contact lenses. In the mean time I lived in a soft focus world and my friends had to be my eyes!

I suppose.. my immediate reaction when I saw this for the first time in 20+ years (both from a box of old pics my parents dug up.. most much older, like from the 50s) was that the shirt tail makes it hard to tell at first that my hand is in the pocket, and not actually in the pants!

Really, the biggest thing is that I've had my beard so long that these look just completely otherworldly now.

Unfortunately he doesn't love you. He's extremely unhappy with the low amounts of your offerings lately.
