    In 1698, I didn’t know they had color film let alone cameras.

    Very advanced, while the rest of the world was living in 1698, your parents were living in 1968! Regardless of year, smooth AF is spot on, awesome picture.

    I don’t think so! Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce wasn’t a thing until the 1830s.

    I have those exact glasses. My mother worked at a Italian restaurant in the 80’s that was already really old and we still have a few of them. When it closed down she was able to get a few.They are very resilient

    His name is u/virak_john, the Highlander. Born in the highlands of Scotland in the year 1682 and he is still alive. He is immortal. For three hundred years, he’s been a warrior… a lover… a wanderer, constantly facing other Immortals in combat to the death. The winner takes his enemy’s head, and with it, his power… In the end, there can be only one. May it be u/virak_john, the Highlander.

    Just guessing, I would assume 1968 is more appropriate!

    There’s something about late 60’s women’s make up that often seems to give them a scowl. Something about the mascara and eyeliner.
