If given two pictures of the same celebrity that were taken 10+ years apart, would you be able to guess which picture was taken when they were younger? Take the quiz and find out!

It might seem odd that the Chilean flag emoji (??) would find itself the target of a political debate in Texas, of all places, but that’s exactly what happened. Texas doesn’t have an emoji for its own state flag, leading many people to use the visibly similar Chilean flag when sending messages about Texas. For Texans, this improper use of the emoji (??) has been a source of irritation for quite a while. Now, a Texas lawmaker has filed a resolution asking fellow Texans to stop using the Chilean flag emoji as a Texas flag.
Texans aren’t afraid to voice their anger over the Chilean flag ?? emoji usage.
Biggest Emoji pet peeve – CHILE flag is not the Texas flag. It's not "close enough"
For Chile, the white represents the snow on the Andes mountains, and the red represents the blood spilled fighting for freedom. The blue represents the sky and the star is a “guide to progress and honor.”
In the resolution, Oliverson urges “Texans not to use the flag emoji of the Republic of Chile when referring to the Texas flag.” Oliverson told Reuters, “I designed [the resolution] to be educational, kind of like a public service announcement.”
The resolution, which is not a law, makes several distinctions between the flags of Texas and Chile.
That the 85th Legislature of the State of Texas hereby reject the notion that the Chilean flag, although it is a nice flag, can in any way compare to or be substituted for the official state flag of Texas and urge all Texans not to use the Republic of Chile flag emoji in digital forums when referring to the Lone Star Flag of the great State of Texas.
Of course some people clapped back, saying the real problem is poor education.
There is a need for a better education in the US if there are people who believe that the emoji from Chile's flag is actually the Texas flag
