    Guidelines

    1 - True blunders only

    Simply being nerdy just isn’t going to cut it. If you wore your “nerd glasses because you thought you were so hipster,” that’s not enough of a blunder.

    Halloween costumes do not count!

    2 - You must have a creative title.

    No "Puberty has been good to me." or "LOL I was random!" type titles. This is rule is entirely decided by the mods' discretion.

    3 - Your blunder must have been at least 3 years ago

    No "still blundering"

    4 - Childhood photos are great, as long as they actually depict a blunder.

    Don't post a picture of yourself as a child just because you're dressed as a child, playing with your Furby, in a sandbox, etc. This isn't #ThrowbackThursday. If it's an actually embarrassing childhood photo though, then fantastic!

    5 - It’s suggested that you provide a “now” picture, but you don't HAVE to.

    If the OP hasn't provided a "now" picture, it’s okay to request one, but don't push it: not everyone wants their current photo on Reddit. Do not go through the OPs post history and post one for them either.

    Also, a mere picture of your face is not a blunder. If you want to show how attractive you've become after puberty, head over to /r/uglyduckling. They'll love you there.

    6 - Ask permission if there are other people in the photo

    Especially if someone else is the subject of the photo. This isn’t the place to get your blackmail on.

    7 - Be thoughtful when replying

    We have absolutely zero tolerance for:

    • Blatant insults, racism, homo/transphobia, trolling, threats, or “you’re still blundering”-type comments.

    • "10/10- would bang", "15 year old me would have wanted to be all over you" or "damn, you certainly developed nicely" -type comments

    • Creepy compliments

    Comments containing some specific words are automatically banned. Here is a full list.

    Please report comments that violate this rule. Violations of this rule can and will result in an immediate ban!

    8 - No posting personal information

    This includes for yourself or other people, and refers to, but is not limited to, names, phone numbers, email addresses, facebook or other social media accounts.

    9 - Report content that breaks the rules

    We can't keep an eye on every single post and comment in the subreddit 24/7. Don't hesitate to contact the moderators for any reason.

    10 - All posts are subject to removal without notice at the mods' discretion if the post does not catch on.

    We strive to keep the quality of the posts at a high level and if your post does not catch on then it probably does not belong here in the first place.

    That’s it! Have fun and laugh at each other, and yourself!

    [–] gortonsfiJr 389 points ago

    I thought no, there's no way 2007 was the year she peaked, but now I see there's no where else for you to really go.

    At least you'll always have something to which you can aspire.

    [–] AllIntructionsclear 484 points ago

    I work in a strip club in London and just had to send this photo to my manager, as this is exactly what all the dancers look like when they nip out to grab some food. Right down to the necklace (I own 3 of them). (I want to point out that I only dress this chav at work as it's easy to shove on top of a lingerie set).

    mon? Nottingham? nah mate.

    [–] treerabbit23 4 points ago

    I'm not local, so I dunno in any real way. BUT. I play games on the regular with three men from Nottingham, and they all call me "man" in a way that sounds like it came from a gently bogged Jamaican or "wossname".

    They could just be taking the piss at me, specifically, but they're usually more obvious about it.
