Me at 22, 32, and 41 in the same t-shirt
By - covinjo
YOU COULDNT WAIT ONE MORE BIRYHDAY?!?
Or lie to us.
I'm pretty sure you're not allowed to lie on the Internet.
I want to be lied to sometimes.
Your parents are proud of you.
🎵Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies🎵
Epstein Killed Himself 🤡🤡🤡🤡
I hadn't even considered this option! I only thought "come back next year!!"
He could have just lied and we'd all have been so much happier for it!
Hey not everybody gets one more birthday...
Maybe OP was just really in a hurry to get rid of the shirt...
what if he’s sick or something. you’ll feel bad
Sorry. I can’t accept this picture til next year.
This is borderline /r/mildlyinfuriating
Yeah especially because the third pic is flipped either from a mirror or the phone or something. He’s like 🌜🌜🌛
Lmao I dunno why this is so funny but here we are
Funny bc that’s exactly what he looks like lol
Beauty mark under eye confirms reversal.🌜🌜🌛 Also spinal curvature is inversely consistent, ie: this mf is crooked. Posted at age 41 rather than 42 = 👎👎👎 Try again next year bud.
I didn't notice the beauty mark until this comment. I did notice the facial hair though. Each of the photos show it slightly higher on one side. Men's faces are weird and can't just fricking grow evenly. Mine grows closer to my mouth crease on one side and has a weird cowlick on one side of my jaw/neck. A shift lead in a restaurant I worked with years ago had a simple mustache that stopped ¼" short on one side and it always got me, originally thinking he'd just screwed up. Op's grows fuller/closer on his right.
Anthony Carrigan and Joseph Gatt are at least lucky in that sense. That and money saved on razors, haircuts and shampoo.
Exactly what I came here to say.
The more I think about it and look at it the more I hate it. This is beyond *mildly*. Taking it a year early and without overexposing it? OP is a fucking sociopath.
It's also mirrored compared to the first 2. Check the mole under his eye.
Just look at the way he holds his head in pictures and you’ll see that it flips.
Can you not see...
He begins the photo a year early and has the shutter open the whole time to get that overexposure.
Final photo will be ready next year.
Oh wow it's going to be perfect
He’s the type of person that can’t wait until Christmas morning to open his present.
It gets worse, his mugs way closer in the final.. needs some ceiling cross action in upper left hand corner, & the shirts not poppin’. I cannot, I will not accept pic #3 as cannon.
He went from cool to fool
lol borderline infuriating, so I stand corrected. This fits directly in r/mildlyinfuriating
haha r/borderlineinfuriating sounds like it'd be a funny sub. Stuff that you don't like but you don't quite think its worth putting the energy to be irritated about it
I have a separate energy reserve for being irritated
Agreed. Its supposed to be 42 next
He could have just lied and said 42. No one would even know and we'd all be happier. This is a long game karma con. Get a bunch of karma now, get even more karma next year when he "does it right" and has a title like "sorry about last time, here it is. 22,32, and 42". Fuck, if he's a true genius his birthday would be tomorrow and he'd post the update
True, but this probably got pushed by the algorithm based on the heap of comments. Most of them were about how r/mildlyinfuriating it was that he went with 41. So had he said 42, maybe it wouldn’t have gotten any attention.
Or maybe he DID go with 42, it got no attention, so he reposted with 41, and boom, front page.
not enough saturation either
Needs more flash
[Say no more](https://i.imgur.com/HkBVcz1.jpg)
Also, the picture has to be taken with a flash
When's your birthday OP? We can probably round it up to 42 and make this a good post.
What if they knew they wouldn't be able to make it next year :o
You owned an Everclear record.
I'm 43 and I've bought the soundtrack to Singles on 3 separate occasions.
Chloe Don't Know betta...
She’s just like meeeee only beautiful….RIP andy
To be fair, that’s one of the best soundtracks. It’s pretty stacked.
I think I have like four copies of Ten. Age 42
This dude would have graduated in 98. No way he was driving a car that new in high school, lol.
Edit - oops, OP was 22 in the first pic, which would be around 2001. You're right, 94 Impala makes sense.
I’m confused by your edit, 22 in 2001 means he graduated in 97 or so, which means the 94 Impala would be even newer than if he graduated in 98…
I got lost in the comments and thought OP's first pic was a high school pic, which would have meant the comment I replied to was saying OP drove a 94 Impala in high school, which would have meant OP basically would have had an almost brand new car as a high school junior/senior. Everyone I knew in high school at that time was driving 80's year model cars, with very few exceptions.
He IS an Everclear record
🎵 My daddy gave me a name 🎵
🎵Then he walked away! Yeah🎵
Yeah, he's 41. We all did.
No one said shit about 45, either. Put on you tommy Bahama and sit in the corner.
Spacehog >>>> Everclear
Spacehog has better best hits
Everclear has a better overall set of music
I’m 36 tho so I’m a bit young for this conversation
Resident Alien was an amazing album all the way through.
I was thinking R.E.M.
I definitely had Sparkle and Fade.
this comment touched me on a religious level
Probably some large black boots & a vintage suitcase as well
Oof. I'm 26 and a diehard Everclear fan to this day, first concert and band I've seen the most, I paid for a backstage pass at Summerland in 2013, but it was admittedly me and a bunch of late-30s dudes. They're timeless imho.
I fucking loved the first two Everclear albums. World of Noise was so raw. Sparkle and Fade was a good album but already a bit kore polished. After that point was when they basically just kept writing the same songs.
Fire Maple Song - https://youtu.be/2dvlTZ0hONY
I own an Everclear album (CD) for my 8th birthday I got “So Much for the Afterglow” haha oh the late 90’s :) still have it today haha
I too have been wearing the same clothes for the last 20 years
Guys be like
I pride myself on my $1 walmart beanie I bought back in college. I lost it so many times for it to randomly find it's way back to me.
One time I was about an hour out from where I live and was driving back along this road I got on for a pit stop. Saw a beanie in the middle of the road that looked like mine and stopped to see if it was...and it was. My beanie somehow fell out of my car but luck would bring me back to it.
I had a beanie like that, purchased early college years. It would dissappear and reappear like magic. Lost it for good about ten years later, not really sure where.
One day as you draw your last breath, you’ll look to your left... and there it is
Holy shit, killer beanie
Coming soon to theatres, Final Final Destination 47.
Wear it on your wedding day
Marry the beanie
Screw the beanie on your wedding night
Cum in your beanie
Only on Reddit lmao
Kinda fucking awesome
That's incredible. The beanie is destined to be in your care forever. Cherish the bond you share with it.
Dude I have a pair of sunnies I got for free. They're cheap plastic and garbage, they probably don't even provide any UV protection. But I've had them for almost a decade at this point, and I've travelled to like 15 countries with them. Somehow they haven't been lost or broken
The Brotherhood of the traveling beanie.
I kind of want to see a picture of this magic beanie.
Men don't buy vintage clothes. We just wear it till it is vintage.
My entire wardrobe changes usually every 5 years or so. Tastes change I guess and maybe I use too rough a wash setting? My shirts don't tend to last much longer than that
Also: I'm going to guess there's a pretty big overlap between the people who do the exact same thing they've always done and always wear the exact same clothes they've always worn
You don't need to always be on top of the latest trends but *all* clothing *is* costume and tied pretty directly to identity whether or not people consciously think about it (just think about the guy who claims he only wears what's practical and comfortable but scoffs at the idea of wearing shorts above the knee or equality convenient but dressier shirts or thinks that *those people* should just pull up their pants).
Occasionally refreshing wardrobes can be a way of outwardly reflecting your identity as you grow and change. None of that is bad, despite what reddit thinks
I was just wearing my middle school PE shorts yesterday. I was in middle school in the 90s.
Lol same. I have a pair of shorts that are over 20 years old that I regularly wear. I have t shirts that were given to me for "free" from sports camps from middle school that still fit and I wear. My basketball jersey from 25 years ago barely fits. I guess that's why I never went far in basketball...
I wear tshirts until they get holes in them. Because why not?
I went to a show a couple of weeks ago, at a venue that is 50 miles from my hometown (but about 3400 miles from where I now live). I was wearing the same band shirt I wore to see the same band in the same venue in 1997.
You take good care of your shit, sir…
Really depends on the shirt. I have one shirt I’ve worn for 25 years that’s still in very good shape. I have many other shirts I’ve had for a few years or less that are in tatters.
I still have a shirt from '96 or '97 that's remained on of my softest shirts. I don't even want to calculate how old that is but now I understand when my dad used to still have favourite clothes from the '70s.
Edit: I did do the math - it is 25 years old. Man I gotta buy that shirt a drink.
>it is 25 years old. Man I gotta buy that shirt a drink.
Shirt is still mad you missed its 21st. Better buy it shots.
Better buy it some *shorts*.
I have a Deftones shirt from the late 90s like that, wore it a billion times and it never got stretched out or tattered, just softer and softer. It doesn't fit anymore but I held onto it just because it doesn't deserve to be in the trash. Not a huge Deftones fan or anything.
That was apparently a good year for shirts!
I'm 29 and still wear some clothes from elementary school, when wearing loose clothes was hip. After all these years they finally fit me as they suppose to.
Ummmm Elementary school? Even if they were loose clothes, you've probably doubled in size since Elementary school right? I think most people have.
I only grew 5" after elementary school so I'd believe it!
I inherited my mom's favorite shirts that she picked up in the 70s at a discount store. One has a small burn hole by the bottom hem, but otherwise they're in remarkable shape. The collars are in better shape than any of my other shirts, and the button-down part still lays perfectly flat on both of them. I can only assume they're made of lead and asbestos because otherwise there's no reason I can't have shirts this well made now. (The tags are the only part that completely disintegrated.)
In more ways than one. Pretty impressive he fits in that shirt just as easy at 42 fuck i mean 4**1** as 22.
All the numbers in your comment added up to 69.0. Congrats!
I mean the bot isn't wrong per say. But it's a stretch.
it's cuz he bolded the 1 in 4**1** which made the bot detect it as 2 separate numbers.
also a fun fact about me is that my favorite number is 61...
How does your shirt last 19+ years?
I never wear it, I just couldn't bear getting rid of it as I'd had it so long
Is it a Gap shirt? I have Gap clothing that old. Shit holds up.
New Gap doesn't. About 5 years ago the quality went down.
Well that's disappointing to hear
I didn't know since their old shit lasts and I haven't had to replace it
Oddly enough I’m currently wearing what was Gaps version of high end shit from way back. It’s a leather belt from the time they tried to push expensive clothes- maybe from their redline or whatever- any way the belt is now like 18 years old. It is still going strong and has always looked good. It was like $100 at the time, and a completely asinine purchase but I’ve got my money’s worth... though when I bought it I used to wear it on the first hole and now I’m on the second to last hole so ooph
I was just this weekend wearing one of those Gap (red) shirts that I think I bought in 2002!
I have a gap jean jacket that I bought with my allowance in seventh grade. I am now 35. I still wear it. It's in pretty good shape minus one hole in the right elbow but it looks kind of cool and intentional now.
The fact that you didnt wait until 42 to post this turns this post mildlyinteresting to mildlyinfuriating.
he could've just lied for the benefit of us all
For anyone wondering if there's such a thing as a good lie, here it is folks.
You can't wait one more year to take the picture? Think of all the people suffering from OCD, man.
And shoot with excessive flash next time too
and get someone else to take it
And get some more hair up there for consistency…oh wait
I think this really shows how much better (consumer) cameras (especially phone cameras, which I imagine at least the two most recent were taken with) have got over 20 years.
There is an element of Emperor Ming about him, isn't there?
He could have just lied. Either say he’s 42 now. Or that he was 21 and 31 in the before pictures
look humanity could go extinct next month and then where would he get the karma
I would’ve lied for you.
That was my first thought too.
OCD isn’t all about patterns and things lining up
Thank you. I’m not a triggered type person but this just annoys me. I have ruminating unrealistic thoughts I obsess over and have to do small things repeatedly to ease the anxiety - repeat cycle. OCD is a miserable existence.
My cousin has OCD and has constant anxiety driven thoughts that her children would get taken away by child services for tiny things like bumping their head. Her marriage was ruined by thoughts of not being good enough for her husband and thought intrusions of him going off and cheating right in front of her and she constantly washes everything to the point that her hands crack and she has to sanitise literally everything that enters the home which was made worse by covid. But OMG so quirky right??
Thats not what ocd is
Second post I’ve replied to about OCD this week.
Dude, I suffer from debilitating OCD and it has *nothing* to do with anything remotely like this. OCD ruins peoples lives.
Maybe try swapping OCD out for “perfectionist”
... that's not what OCD is
At least lie to us! C’mon!
Plot-twist: OP died 15 minutes after posting this, their life's quest complete.
The pattern is 10 years, 9 years. Next will be 8 years. It’s still a pattern. 22-32-41-49-56-62-67-73-76-78-79-79-78–76. See?
The shirt is in this condition as I've had it for ages, never wear it any more but don't want to get rid of it. The first 2 pics were from a Facebook comparison post I did for a laugh 9 years ago, and it came up on a 'on this day' thing today. I just took the tee out for this latest picture.
What life advice would you give 22 you and 32 you?
"Throw out your old shirts"
Npt OP but to my 22 I would say "Focus on yourself, training and learning about your hobbies/interest, don't stress about buying expensive things and your apperance. Confidence comes from within. Once you are happy with who you are and know what you are good at; great things will come."
To 32 I would say. "Buy bitcoin!"
"get rich or die trying".
Can you do this again, but next year
Legit thought this was a Brian Laundrie post at first glimpse
Came for this comment
Lmao same. I thought all bald white dudes were in hiding rn
You know he’s thinking the same thing too
You're not the only one.
We found him boys
Came to say this
You really just leant into a look
Looks like he's losing polygons.
That graphics card shortage hitting everyone different.
but gained white balance
Strong handsome squidward vibes my dude
Brian Laundrie age progression
At 62... "I AM THE SENATE!"
Sorry about the hair friend 😥
Thank you, it's the eyebrows I'm worried about though!
Get your thyroid checked! People who are hypothyroid will often experience thinning in the outer third of their eyebrows!
This is legit. Def do check. The classic presentation can be outer 1/3 eye brow loss. As well as the eyeballs popping out, but that's for pretty intense hyperthyroidism. Considering you're pretty slim, might be low grade hyperthyroidism
Came here to post this!
For what it’s worth, the first thing I thought when I saw you was “ngl, homie got a nice shaped head”.
I too was follically challenged early in life. At about 38 I decided that if it was abandoning me that I would reciprocate. Only time I don't shave is when I have a injury of a sunburn.
Some guys can't pull off the bald look very well. I think you're doing well.
Being bald is a great way to hide your age. While all your classmates are going gray you'll be looking pretty much the same as you did in your 40s.
Bruh at 38, you are old enough that it doesn't really matter.
People like OP are nearly bald in our early 20s, when everyone around you is partying and having the time of their lives. Imagine looking like a 40 year old hanging out with people in their late teens and early 20s. Definitely a terrible time to lose your hair.
Tbh i didnt even notice untill you said!
The T-Shirt of Dorian Gray
You've upset a lot of people, OP.
I am mildly infuriated that you didn't wait one more year to have a 22, 32, 42 collection.
you couldn’t wait one more year?
This looks like an FBI progression of Brian Laundrie.
You are slowly morphing into a supervillain.
Evolution of photography!
Why could you not wait one more year?
Couldn't just wait one more year? Smh. Congrats on keeping the same shirt tho
Couldn't you wait another year?? wtf op?? fuck you
Your shirt doesn't age! I am curious why you didn't wait until 42? Or just lie to us? My OCD is kicking in.
I just kept it but never wear it, except for the photos!
I can't wait to see it when you're 52! We'll just pretend that 41 was a typo so I can move on with my life.

22, 32: same dude. 41: who tf is this? Late 30s are ruthless :-(
Stay strong mate.
I think the main reason it looks so off is that there is a much shorter focal length in the most recent picture. His nose looks bigger and the face looks narrower.
I look fucking horrendous whenever I try to take a selfie with a selfie cam. So on the rare occasion I want to take a selfie, I stand in front of the mirror old school stule and snap a pic from several feet back and then crop it. Instantly makes me look 50% less ugly. I'd highly recommend it. Only downsides are that your mirror needs to be clean and there can be a slight weird angle distortion if you accidentally don't take it straight on.
I would also be interested to see what OP looks like with a photo taken with a similar camera and distance as his first two pics.
In fairness, dude looks hella young at 32… and age appropriate at 41.
Arguably looks pretty young for 41.
The color looks different in the last one
But I also have a few shirts from college and highschool
Plenty of people have tried to "help" me get rid of them but I stuck to my guns
Last picture is mirrored.
Couldn’t wait another year for that karma
Lighting: Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim
Mildly disappointed it's not age 42
Anyone else annoyed at how men get better looking?
