Most of us have old tween or teen photos we wouldn’t mind pretending didn’t exist, even from the better years. Then there’s also those photos that even our closest friends today don’t seem to recognize us in…


Whether it’s the mysteries of puberty, miracles of hair products and time at the gym or full out plastic surgery, sometimes our physical transformations invoke genuine surprise from our friends and colleagues today.
