One of the most seminal moments of our lives is when we step in front of the camera for our high school yearbook photo. You may shake your head at that concept, but it’s true! Yearbook photos are our chance to cement ourselves as the coolest person in our grade, irrespective of what the rest of the world thinks. As you’ll see below, some of these high schoolers may have tried just a little too hard.
A Boy And His Cat
When you are in high school, you are told to pursue what you love. Who wants to bet that this kid is judging cat shows somewhere? We dig the retro-laser filter and the supreme close-up of Mr. Meow’s mouth and snout, well, who doesn’t love HD pictures of cute cats? Well, the cat might not — he’s looking pretty annoyed.
Eden Is Every Inner Child
Have you ever stared at something so long that it began to morph into something weird? Try saying the word ‘pineapple’ for a minute straight. That word sounds weird now, doesn’t it? Apparently, Eden was inspired by a similar process, only she stared at her bowl of Cheerios for far too long. Donut seeds? Get Eden a job writing for ‘The Simpsons’ immediately.
High School Rebellion Summed Up
Every high school kid has gone through their rebellious phase. Whether it was trying out your first sip of beer or completely disregarding curfew, we’ve all been there. This unnamed high school senior had a, well, completely different approach to rebelling. After all, nothing quite screams counterculture like dressing up for graduation before throwing on your fake Anarchy forehead tattoo.
A Link To The Past
Suzanne is a simple woman, she knows what she likes and she isn’t afraid to tell everyone. With that being said, your senior quote should really speak to your future self in some kind of way, right? We wonder what ‘Hyaaahh!!’ means to Suzanne now. Does she still love the Legend of Zelda? Or did the writing just speak to her?
Class Up Front, Part In The Back
High school is all about being as obnoxiously loud about who you are as possible. With that being said, we can’t help but wonder if this gentleman regrets the party mullet look. Are we being unfair by judging this hairstyle so harshly? Probably. After all, undercuts are currently a thing. Do you think your hairstyle is going to age gracefully? If so, we have bad news for you.
Know Your Priorities
An alternative headline for this picture is, “Know your friends.” We can’t fault this fellas logic but we sure as heck can be skeptical about his loyalty. Would you be willing to take a bullet for your best friend? Would you be willing to take a bullet for your best friend if you thought you had a shot with their significant other? Ah, nothing like a high school moral quandary.
Brother & Sister Or Mortal Enemies
We all had a rival in highschool, right? That one person that you always wanted to get the one-up on? Here we have Sean throwing haymakers right at Stephanie’s yearbook photo. The biggest mystery in this picture is this: are these two related and is this just a fun sibling rivalry? Or is this romantic tension? Or are they just two good old fashioned mortal enemies?
Team Work Makes The Dream Work
We all have dreams in life. Some of us want to be astronauts. Others want to be on the forefront of the next big technological breakthrough. For Jack, Joshua and Kimberly, their dreams were a little more grounded: they just wanted the best yearbook photo of all time. Did they succeed? Is this ‘too cool for school’?
Shoulda Mentioned That Four Years Ago
Having a slightly unusual name can go one of two ways when you are in high school. You might become celebrated for your name (Whoa, look at how cool highschool QB Johnny Blaze is!) or you could be ridiculed for it. For Pareekshit Ravi, we feel like he probably could have cleared the air a little sooner, thus saving him some real trouble. Oh well, you live and you learn Pareekshit.
The Next Mitch Hedberg
If you don’t know who Mitch Hedberg is, go straight to YouTube and find out — we’ll wait. Alright, you’re back. Now that you have a frame of reference, is Bradley not the next Mitch Hedberg? He’s gotta write up a few jokes about lemons and limes and we’re all in on the ‘born again’ theory.
The Most Agreeable Man Around
We are all Connor in some way, shape or form. When we care so little about something, we just let the other party handle it. Maybe Connor should have cared a bit more? Or maybe the Yearbook team is just great at being snarky. Either way, we dig it.
Dwayne Is Flying At A 
We would never say that someone is on drugs based off of a single photo from high school. We will say that we wouldn’t be surprised if Dwayne Carter knew what weed was and liked to partake in it. Aw, heck. Alright, we’ll say it. Dwayne’s yearbook photo is something straight out of a Seth Rogen movie.
Meet Your Next Great CEO
There are two ways to succeed in life, really. You can accel based on your own talent and hard work. Or, you can succeed based on your own talent and hard work while simultaneously cutting down all of your competition. We are betting that Chang fits pretty neatly into the second category. If he isn’t the next great American CEO then we don’t know who will be.
Scott Still Has The Munchies
We know that Scott is rocking a tobacco pipe. Still, whatever is mounded on top of that pipe sure isn’t your regular tobacco. Legend has it that Scott Myers is still wrecking the snack aisle of grocery stores in his home town to this day. The sunglasses are starting to make more sense…
Someone Call Goku
We will never argue against the fact that people can love what they want to love. We will say that maybe, just maybe, you should skip out on your passion during your yearbook photo. Unless that really is Frieza, in which case — call Goku, immediately.
Wrestling Is A Serious Sport
…but the school magazine sure did a poor job at showcasing it. Wrestling can get you into shape while teaching you amazing self-defense maneuvers. Unfortunately, all anyone sees in this picture is a steamy and inappropriate Passion Show. Come on you guys, who let this through?
We Found Scott’s Supply
Candid photos can make for some of the best yearbook photos of all time. Of course, you should probably make sure that you aren’t photographing two of your fellow students while they deal drugs. We’re sure the principal just loved this.
Wise Words Jon Wane
Of course we know it is spelled ‘John Wayne’, but how else could we show appreciation for this amazing Yearbook photo? Wise beyond his years, we bet this fellow still has it together.
Peter Dinklage is a fantastic actor that has made a huge name for himself, here we see him with a huge hair style, trying to look serious and edgy. He is still completely rugged and we can kind of see what he was going for, but he is certainly not coming off as intimidating in any way.
We all love funny man Owen Wilson. Here we see him in his high school honor guard uniform. His trademark nose and wide smile are still present even though he looks a bit terrified. He looks like he may be trying to take a serious photo but he’s just too cute.
She was always known for her hair, but here we see the start of the signature Farrah flip in this vintage photo of Farrah Fawcett. She is a vision but she also shows us just how hilarious hair styles used to be in her day and age.
Here we see a photo of a young man that seems to be happy and go lucky but we also see that he has a quirky little bow tie and a pair of glasses that must be heavy.
Here we see a young man that has been caught mid blink and with his smile a bit off kilter. There may have been better photos in the roll but this is the one that finally made the cut and it seems a bit strange that the photographer chose it.
This photo is one that is sure to go down in history. We see a young man in his band uniform sporting the quintessential 90s pose of looking off calmly into the distance while the photographer snaps a picture.
We aren’t sure if it the hair cut, the blank stare, or the band uniform that makes this photo truly terrible but we are sure he will remember it forever and his family has a great time laughing at it.
We love a good side swept bang but this is a bit much. We are sure his mother was not happy with the photo when she got them back. Someone is due for a hair cut.
Poodle hair was popular back in the day, here we see a young man that has unfortunately been caught in the perm box. At least he looks happy though. This is a funny photo and we are sure he stopped perming his hair in his older age, but for this photo at least, he made everyone with a perm proud.
This photo looks like he may have made this face on purpose, or he was caught mid sneeze, or maybe he just hates having his photo taken. Whatever it was, this is a photo that will be funny for his family for years to come.
This looks like a joke, it also looks like it has undergone some serious photo shop, who knows, maybe this kid was part of the yearbook staff and was able to sneak in this photo of himself in this strange white costume without anyone noticing.
This face looks entirely intentional. He looks like he was fed up with taking the photo and simply wanted to get it over with. There is no doubt that this photo got this kid in trouble with his parents when they finally saw what the photo looked like.
This face was completely on purpose. So was the staged hand under the chin pose. This is a photo that is certainly worthy of an outtake reel and that is great comedic relief for anyone that looks at it. Hopefully he didn’t get into too much trouble with his mother when he got home and she saw the final photo.
This photo is one where the haircut certainly steals the show. His face is pleasant and he looks like he isn’t unhappy about taking the photo, but this hair cut is certainly something that no one should ever force on their kids.
This photo of a kid named Drew Forsyth is punctuated with a terrible hair cut and a terrible bow tie. He looks happy enough but this outfit and hair cut combo is certainly one that is going to go down in the books.
This kid was caught mid blink and it has resulted in a photo that is funny to say the least. This photo is one that is going to haunt him for the rest of his life, it doesn’t even seem like he was able to do a retake.
This little girl looks like she wants to punch the photographer. Even though she is absolutely adorable, she also looks like she wants to beat them up and go back to playing.
This hair is completely unfortunate. Mullets are a craze that thankfully has died out but there are plenty of photos left to commemorate them and to keep them in the memories of everyone that rocked one during their childhood or teenage years.
Here is another mullet that is majestic and out there to say the least. It even looks like he curled the bottom and blow dried the top to make it extra large. His mustache is a bit much as well. At least he thinks he looks good.
We hope this was a photo for the drama club or at the very least a photo that was taken as a joke. His helm and weapon are just too funny not to be a joke but to each his own.

40 Unforgivable Movie Bloopers
With that goes with making a movie, especially one for the big cinema screen, it’s not surprising when mistakes occur or edits are need. That’s what the editing room is for to go through the draft film and tighten up all the problems or loose spots in the film as well as to get it within the acceptable viewing time allowed. However, once in a while even the best of movies, including Oscar-winning films, have bloopers in them that just can’t be forgiven. They are such clear violations of quality film-making, people wonder how the blooper got through to the public viewing, and yet it does anyways. Here are 25 examples of film bloopers that never should have been allowed or the detail missed, but in the fictional world of movies they occur regardless.
Homeless Man Who Helped a Woman Turned Out to be a Hoax
The story of the homeless man who helped out a woman needing gas for her car by donating his few dollars went viral on the Internet and had hundreds of people wanting to reach out and help. They did so through a GoFundMe site that ended up generating a sizable amount of charity and gifts. For those who gave money, it made them feel better instantly. There was only one problem. The story was made up. The man was not homeless, and the woman had never run out of gas.
Instead, the two were involved in an online scam that ended up defrauding folks out of approximately $400,000 in online money gifts. It was not only enough to trigger a serious crime, the pair got themselves charged with a federal conspiracy case and ultimately pled guilty in a New Jersey federal court. Johnny Bobbitt and Katelyn McClure both separately admitted their crime of wire fraud. Given their involvement and degree of actions, Bobbitt is looking at a potential 10 years in federal prison and $250,000 in fines. McClure for her part faces a bigger sentence of 20 years and a similar financial penalty. Both will find out for sure when they are sentenced. In addition to the federal charges, the pair also have a second round of trials to go through with state charges as well. It was a blunt, cold ending to a story and scam that started in 2017 and took off like wildfire, far better than Hobbitt and McClure thought it would.
The story was plausible and reasonable enough. A couple told their story online about how they wanted to help a homeless man who helped them. McClure and her partner posted that Bobbitt realized McClure was in trouble, stuck in Philadelphia without gas. She needed to get home, and Bobbitt, who was nearby, realized the problem. He then gave her his only $20 to buy gas so she could travel again. To show their gratitude, McClure and her boyfriend were trying to raise $10,000 to help Bobbitt out as a thank you. The story took off.
Unfortunately, the media got involved. Loving a story out of the norm with a good newsworthy ending, they showcased the story on TV, and it got big attention. All of a sudden, what was supposed to be a little scam turned into a big one, raising some $402,706 with the added attention in a short three weeks. While Bobbitt did get $25,000 set aside by McClure and her partner, the rest of it was burned like kerosene on fire via clothing, trips, a car, vacations, gambling and more. However, Bobbitt didn’t appreciate the small share, and sued the pair for more, arguing he should have gotten $75,000 at least. GoFundMe got involved by trying to avoid bad press and making sure Bobbitt, the alleged homeless person, got his fair shake.
All of the financial attention caught the eye of the Feds who started investigating McClure. They seized well over 60,000 digital messages between the couple, which included admissions that the whole story was made up – a smoking gun text in the fraud conspiracy. Interestingly, McClure’s partner, although he enjoyed the spending of the money with McClure, was not charged or seen as involved in the conspiracy. The Feds went after McClure and the alleged homeless partner, Bobbitt, for the fraud. And GoFundMe yet again found itself in the middle of a crazy criminal scheme gone public and bad, stealing money from people who wanted to help others online. It turned out to be an odd, miserable ending to what many had hoped would have been a story of human charity done right.
Drones, COVID-19, and Girl Scout Cookies: How One Virginia Troop Made It All Work
Nestled in the heart of Montgomery County is Christiansburg, VA. A small town with just over 20,000 within its city limits, Christiansburg was first founded in 1671. Hundreds of years later, the city continues to thrive despite the COVID-19 pandemic that has been wrecking so much of our day-to-day life.
One particular group of Christiansburg locals made it their goal to deliver Girl Scout Cookies no matter what during the pandemic and Google’s parental company, Alphabet Inc., decided to help them out.
Cookies From the Sky
During the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, it seemed unlikely that there would ever be a time when the pandemic would end. As economies shuttered and businesses quarantined, people had to get creative to continue working their trade. A team of Girl Scouts in Virginia was determined to deliver their famous cookies this past year, but due to COVID restrictions, they knew that this would bed difficult.
Lia Reich is a global communications lead at Wing, a subsidiary of the company Alphabet Inc.. Wing develops drones for Google, and it was through their futuristic work that Thin Mints would rain down from the sky. Lia says of COVID restrictions impacting the Scouts, “Selling cookies outside (grocery stores or shops) is difficult this year.”
According to Lia, sales within the Girl Scouts have dropped more than 50%. Lia would go on to tell the team at USA TODAY during an interview, “It was a natural fit to partner with the Girl Scouts.”
Despite soaring vaccination rates and loosening COVID restrictions, the drone program would get launched through the Wing App and its corresponding website. According to Reich, the plan at Wing is to help deliver more than 3,000 total boxes of cookies via its drone delivery service, if not even more.
For the Girl Scouts, cookie season typically begins in January though flavor availability and onset will vary based upon the region. For the longest time, Girl Scouts have prioritized selling their goods in residential neighborhoods, outside of grocery stores, and even through company programs at local businesses.
Unfortunately for the Girl Scouts, the COVID-19 pandemic would put an end to convention. In March 2020, the Scouts would suspend all of their traditional cookie booths and door-to-door sales campaigns. To make up for this loss in action, the Girl Scouts of Virginia would prepare virtual cookie booths through their online social media campaigns to partner with their drone-delivery methods.
Considered one of the largest girl-led programs for entrepreneurs on the planet, the Girl Scout Cookie drive is immensely important for multiple reasons. Not just an important institution, the Girl Scouts are a defining one.
Take Flight With Wing
While the Girl Scouts of Virginia will enjoy drone flying assistance with their cookie deliveries, they won’t have to worry about running the controls themselves. As the first drone delivery company in the country to earn Air Operators Certification from the FAA in 2019, Wing has used the Scouts delivery service as a way to showcase just how far drone flights have come.
According to Reich, “COVID gave people who might not have a reason to try drone delivery, and we saw deliveries increase by more than 500% in 2020.”
Reich’s assertion was backed by a local survey released by Virginia Tech. The survey found that Christiansburg locals enjoyed the idea of a residential drone delivery company with support coming in at 87% in favor of the idea.
Are you ready to start ordering your Girl Scout Cookies through drone delivery services? How about your next grocery order? As it turns out, the sky might be the limit!
