What did you look like back in the day?

Recommended Posts

So Scott (Hatch92) and I were talking about highschool photos and the horrors of what we looked like back then. So that got me wondering... what did everyone here look like back in the day?

 

Post your embarrassing photos up!

 

sometime during freshman year

Well, Sony's digital camera was the size of a styrofoam McDonalds container when I was in high school, so most of my pictures (well, all) are non-digital. Now if you remember that camera, AND styrofoam McDonalds containers, we should be around the same age.

 

So instead, here are some college days to be compared with the recent stuff.

 

Me performing a titration:

Me driving to Titusville to catch a shuttle launch with the kids.

Me graduating with a degree in Chemistry and a Minor in Mathematics.

Now some more recent stuff.

 

This is me 90lbs. lighter coming out of the Atlantic Ocean (1/4 mile swim) into T1 (Transition 1) during my first Triathlon.

Here I am shaving 9 minutes of my previous year's time at the Rita run here in Jax, FL.

You can tell I was still green at that point (running with an iPod). I was a newbie.

Performing a titration..or METH LAB.. :o

I was performing the Iodine Clock experiment in Physical Chemistry. As the Iodide Ion complexes with a starch alpha-helix, the solution reduces in pH and creates an optical rotation that we measure over time. The complex is sensitive to temperature, so we perform multiple runs in several isotherms.

I remember McDonald's styrofoam containers. My brother had this awesome book on how to make various planes out of those things...lol. Back when fries were fried in animal fats and apple pies weren't baked.

 

I too have very limited photos of my youth since digital cameras didn't come into play until about college also. Lets see if i can dig up anything good.

Phenolphthalein is a mild diaretic, and as such, was (and may still be found) used as a laxative; in low concentrations of course.

 

Adding alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, and phenolphthalein in a specific order (and not in the order I gave), creates a solution that can detect blood. Like on CSI, when the q-tip turns pink, and they say ah-hah. Well the pink is phenolphthalein.

 

I originally considered a degree in Chemical Engineering, but chose not to relocate the family in search of an ABET certified program.

he liked it.... and i messed his knee up in the process. when you work with the same people all the time you learn who has knee and back problems and you try to mess with them to make it worse.

yeah it is. and my [step]dad. that photo was taken a few months after they got married.

everyone says that even though mom & i don't look so much the same anymore though. I'm starting to look a lot more like my biological dad these days (which, if i can find my photos of him, i'll scan in and post so you can see) and she looks almost identical to her father.

at xmas- you can still tell she's my mother, but we don't look quite so much the same anymore. we have the same forehead and nose but that's about it now. I don't even have the same body structure as her.

nice pics everyone :)

 

I was digging and found them but they are not digital...scanner has issues right now...so I took pics of the pics with my digital camera hehe :D

 

can't see so well but:

1) high school...jumped in the water fountains at city walk and hopped around with ballet moves to dodge water but got wet anyway...and was crazy on the escalator

2) all my friends in the car partying hehe

3) college, before a party probably
