Post a Really Unflattering Picture of Yourself

Yep. Do it. Everyone loves posting pictures of themselves taken at myspace angles, with dim lighting, with your best flirty smirk and bedroom eyes. Well, I want to see some unflattering pictures. Pictures taken while you're mid-bite/chew/word/blink with your eyes closed, while you're making a ridiculous face, possibly taken from a really awkward angle. They're the best.

Keep it kid-friendly. No unflattering nudes, thanks.

One of mine:
28th birthday (St. Pat's), wasted at an Irish bar, my friend who took the picture said I was watching something. We're still not sure what.

I know I'm gonna regret this. Here I was trying out Jon's bike to feel the difference between carbon and Ti. This bike is huge at a size 58. I ride a 50 compact or 49 regular.

Happy early birthday! From your avatar I was going to guess 32, until you said that pic was from 1980... I wasn't even born yet :X

Oh, and you didn't miss a hell of a lot being born before 1980.

You asked for it!

This was taken at the beginning of the summer, at my fattest, and my most sunburnt. The day of Mary's graduation (the one on the left). The previous two days were drunkenly spent on a boat with little-to-no sunscreen. We made the bet that if Mary could stay in her high heels all afternoon, she got to toss me in the lake - if not, we got to toss her in. She lost, so we all suited up in the only swim suits we could find (the one I'm wearing was from my uncle when he was 18 and much thinner than me, back in 1983)...This happened.



Told you you'd go blind...

I think the video of me wobbling around on the rollers is actually more unflattering, but the thread asks for a picture so here it is:

I've got lots of unflattering pics. Here's one where someone was foolish enough to trust their boat's safety with me as the Helmsman.
