A lot can change in 10 years. The omnipresence of iPhones. Everyone talking to robots in their homes, telling them when to play music. Streaming The Office now on Netflix when, ten years ago, you were either watching it when it aired, torrenting it, or borrowing seasons from friends or coworkers. Man, technology has changed.

But so have people. Folks are sharing photos on Twitter comparing their 2009 selves with their current 2019 selves to prove that fact.
