What's Wrong With This Picture?
« on: May 11, 2014, 03:27:28 PM »
This is my preschool/ kindergarten class picture from 1981-1982, Pine Hills (district in Orlando), FL. What's wrong with it?

That person in the back; either you had two teachers or someone got left behind a few times. The photo looks like something out of a horror film. I wish my kindergarten was so fun.

I'll second jetson's answer.
The cosmos is also within us. We are made of star stuff.

The only thing bigger than the universe is humanity's collective sense of self-importance.

The trick is to try and think like Nam: he wouldn't have asked the question if their wasn't something really unusual and/or funny in the photo.

Oh, and welcome to the Forum. :)

Every time I have ever told anyone that they never believe me until I show them. They had the same basic response.

Advertising cigarettes to PRESCHOOLERS!

By the way, I'm standing next to the teacher in the background third from the left. White blonde kid.

Charlie Brown's about to get a lobotomy. Or perhaps he just had one.

The 2010 world cup was ruined for me by that slippery bastard Paul.

I really don't like finding out that you're only two years older than my oldest son, Nam.

And I was having such a good day…

I had you pegged as the little Dexter Morgan in the middle of the front row in the striped shirt.  Kid has the dead eyes of Vladimir Putin.

You were never a child, Nam.
Extraordinary claims of the bible don't even have ordinary evidence.

Kids aren't paying attention most of the time in science classes so it seems silly to get worked up over ID being taught in schools.

I was actually a sweet sensitive person once--it only took 8+ years for that to be beaten out of me.
