If you ask any grown-ups if they would like to go back in time, most would say yes. Today's adults would gladly exchange their daily life full of tasks and problems with the much more carefree one of yesterday. Yet when they were children they seemed to be looking forward to growing up and becoming adults. Are we never happy? Probably, that's right! Anyone who would like to turn back the years, however, has probably forgotten the looks they were sporting in their "best years", during those overwhelming and difficult adolescence. Looking back at those photos now, some people would definitely want to hide! Also, it looks like some people were trying to look an entirely different age as teenagers - or is it just a coincidence? In this list we have collected for you some of the most hilarious photos on the web, in which some people felt no shame in showing their photos from when they were young. Too bad they looked 20 years older!
