20+ Photos Showing That Some Things Never Change

There’s a theory called Eternal Return which means that everything in this world repeats itself and it can happen an infinite number of times. So, if you’re attentive enough you can always find similarities and repetitions right as you’re flipping through your family album. Users from all over the world share their unexpected findings, which prove that there are things that never change.

We at the Bright Side have collected the most impressive photos which tell us the story of eternal return, each in its own way.

#5 made me kinda sad... why did we stop reading books in the metro? When I take the bus or the metro, I always like to read a book no matter how long the ride :)


The cowlick on number 4 is just to die for haha. I love hairs that do that ?


Number five makes me want to live in the old days when technology was a thing ?


I love the facts that the dog´s owners of number 9 thought about the future when buying his bed haha.
