My Great-Grandmother, born in 1899, never met her, but definitely a legend.

Almost, lived to be 100.

I bet she was pissed.

Did she live past year 2000?

Given the picture, it's safe to say she was

Quite possibly somebody's grandparent(s), rocking out at a Stones concert, 1978

I love the little hats. :)

I just sent this to my Danish friend and said "You were a cute kid." He may never speak to me again.

I am sitting with my Norwegian grandparents when I saw this they said "så fint!" Which means "so nice"

Those are some dapper dudes!!

Your grandad looks like Oscar the Brazilian football player

Your grandmum looks like a cuter, less butch version of Michelle Rodriguez.

Your grandad has Dan Akroyds smirk.

His grandad looks nothing like Katie Holmes.

Haven't got a recent one of them together, I'm afraid, but here's one of my grandmother (she's 78), and here's one of my grandfather (he's 79).

Edit: Linked to the correct image.

"I love my wife. I love my wife. I love my wife."

Carrie is putting it all out there but he's too busy thinking what a pivotal role Jar Jar Binks will have

"But we're in a galaxy far, far away,"

Heard her interviewed on the radio talking about this scene and the costume. She said the bottom part wasn't a great fit, and there was an actor standing near her during the scene who as a result could see "all the way to Africa". Nice turn of phrase.

God the future was so much closer back then than it is now.

I think...That might actually makes sense.

My father used to rebuild corvettes and sell them in auction. One of my formative childhood memories is pulling telephone pole pieces out of the front end of a stingray before replacing the fiberglass.

Serious machines, sold to anyone with a drivers license.

I did not understand it at the time, he said all corvettes are red, the rest are mistakes.

Nice car.

I had to check.. but yes the 3rd generation Buick Riviera got it's styling from the '63 Stingray.

Can you even get that close to LAX anymore to recreate a shot like that?

Princess Diana meeting Mr. Bean [1980s].

I think you mean meeting sir Edmund, The Black Adder, in 1984.

Mr Bean was conceived in 1990.

He wasn't conceived. He just appeared out of nowhere, likely from outer space.

This picture was taken right before he headbutted the queen.

Thank god for that duffle bag, eh?

Goofy looking boy who hasn't grown into himself yet? Check.

Cute girl with bangs? Check.

Summer time fun clothes complete with Hawaiian lays? Check.

Social activities, akin to a summer camp, evident? check.

Some mysterious totem in the boys hand to use as a plot device? Check.

Yup. It looks like you've got all the pieces for a 80s summertime coming of age flick, OP. Nice work.

120% sprouting wood

Ah the old "hide my boner behind the duffle bag" trick. A classic

I love that there is absolutely no context given for this.

So many questions...

Somewhere in Europe.

Renaissance Wedding.

Two people providing comedy dressed as wrestlers.

The one in the wedding dress.

Was this at a renaissance festival? Also, this needs to be submitted to /sub/photoshopbattles.

Pierre Curie, Marie Curie and their daughter Irene Joliot-Curie in 1906. Everyone in this picture was a Nobel laureate in science.

Pierre Curie, Marie Curie and their daughter Irene Joliot-Curie in 1906. Everyone in this picture was a Nobel laureate in science.

And it represents four prizes in total. Marie won the 1903 prize in physics and the 1911 prize in chemistry. This makes her the only women to win twice and the only scientist to win in two different disciplines. Her husband shared the 1903 prize with her, and Irene won the 1935 chemistry prize. So that picture symbolizes 4 freaking Nobel prizes. Wow.

You can barely notice the radiation poisoning

It should. Impressive either way, the societal climate at the time made her accomplishments that much more impressive.

Edit: While I disagree with OP, don't downvote them! Their view here isn't wrong, just different.

Did you know - Pierre died after being run over by a horse and cart? I think that's preferable tbh.
