"Five guys take same photo for 30 years."

Here. Via Metafilter, where one commenter says:
Holy crap, I know one of these guys. He was the founder and CTO of a company I worked for for 7 years. Knowing him, this is exactly the kind of thing he'd do.
Another says:
Holy shit. I'm going to get old and die.

Nicholas Nixon did it better.

Amazing they stayed together.

2012 to 2017 will be even less kind. The final yearscare brutal.

'Another says:

I wonder if they diet every 5 years.

Lem said...

Maybe I'll go tomorrow.

Si Dios quiere.

I bet they would have if they'd known they'd be on CNN.

Wait a minute, Five Guys hasn't even been around for 30 years!

It's so weird that those guys didn't look like their 19 years old every time they took that picture over 30 years. Unlike everyone else.

It's a tontine. The last one alive gets the damn jar.

Okay, John Molony, puff your chest out like you did the first six times, you twat, that's it *click* see ya boys.

I know a guy who does that every time someone takes his picture.

Cool idea. I intended to take a photo of my kids every year next to a tree we planted. Another cool idea, but it didn't happen.

Most impressive thing about this: these guys still know each other after 30 years. I couldn't put four friends of mine form 30 years ago together if my life depended in it. Also, they made the right call putting on shirts at the key year.

"None of the men have children"

I grew up in a neighborhood with 12 boys (the girls were older). Only a couple of us have kids.

It's been a lot of work, but the BEST idea I ever had was children.

Joe said...

Oh gee - the 6 "kids" in my family have been doing this every 15 years since 1966.

The joke is we need to put the youngest of us in those same diapers and take that shot again...

You didn't do that. Somebody else made that happen.
