Photo: What Did David Bowie Do At Your Age?

The Internet is chock-full of David Bowie memories today, as it should be. We remember the first time we heard "Oh! You Pretty Things" in our childhood basement. We remember his turn as the Goblin King in Labyrinth. We remember his beautiful mugshot. And, thanks to "What Did David Bowie Do At Your Age?” , you can remember other landmarks from his life (and compare them unfavorably to your own; alas, we can't all be rock royalty).

Since most of you are over 15, here are some amusing youthful accomplishments:

I hate hot beverages too! Too risky! Room temp is fine! Bowie got it.

Some childhood photos are more miraculous than others.

There are almost no photos of me at 15 because everything about me was unfortunate. This is not the case for dear Bowie. Take a few moments to worship at the altar of his hair. And does it get cooler than leaning your elbow on a sax? A hard nope!

He will be missed.
