My kids’ ugly 20th birthday

A photo of my daughter during her first year of life smiling inset into a computer-generated interpretation of what she will look like in 20 years. It's not pretty.

A photo of my son during his first year of life smiling inset into a computer-generated interpretation of what he will look like in 20 years. It's not pretty.

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.

    Holy Old Man Baby! I uploaded a picture of my 1-year old. He looked eerily similar to yours. I hope for his sake he doesn’t have that many wrinkles at 21.
