The face of evil, 2012

While browsing Reddit, I came across this well done photoshopped picture of what Hitler would look like as a contemporary male:

 I found it striking how much I, and I imagine others, have been socialized to see the left as the personification of evil while the right is normal.  Naturally, people looking at him in the 1920s did not see the same thing we see today.

Of course, we now have this handy chart to know how trustworthy people are based on their facial hair and tells us the right hand picture above is entirely trustworthy.
