My kids’ ugly 20th birthday
Step 1. Upload a forward-facing eyes-open photo of yourself to In20Years.com
Step 2. Get shown what you will look like in 20 years. The submission form also lets you see 30 years into the future, acquire a drug dependency and undergo gender modification surgery.
Suffice to say, the website merely gives you big wonky eyebrows and accentuates your existing wrinkles in such a way that you never look good. So, of course…
Step 3. Upload baby photos to In20Years.com just for fun. I’m saddened to learn that my kids’ hair will never grow.
Note how, if you study the original baby photos, you can’t discern gender. I told the website the gender and it modified facial features in a manner that is consistent (at least for me) with gender expectations in the aged photos, although they couldn’t do anything about my son’s long eyelashes.
