Main > Growing Up

My original plan was to create this Flash-based interactive family tree. Instead, I developed a life, and realized I don't really want to spend months of my life trying to figure out how to make this work.

Not that this is any type of complete collection, but this will show us chronologically growing up into our present-day evil forms. Yes, that's right. Evil.

Hey, you lookin' at us?
