Happy New Year! Apparently a fun new year activity for many Gawker readers is uploading pictures of famous people from their yearbooks or Google Images. Therefore, we have compiled yet another compendium of all-star yearbook photos for you to peruse. Look at all these shining little faces before they made it big. Some of them look the same because they only graduated high school two years ago. Lol.

He was betting I wanted an A more than he did, so he had no incentive to work on the project. So I did all the work and "we" got the A. Sound familiar? Last time I pick a project partner based on looks. I was friends with a few of the Delta Tau Delta brothers so I'd see him on occasion."

Only real memory I have of him is that he and his girlfriend were like...inseparable. Lots of awkward PDA going on at the locker in between classes."
