Redditor Trai-harder posted a picture of a birthday card drawn by an 11-year-old that basically nails the general timeline of any person's time on Earth. Look at how the baby's expression of wonder changes to the typical adult countenance of anguish. That's one sad stick figure. Oh, and happy birthday! You're almost dead!

The text reads, "Life is a waterslide where you die at the end…" while the artwork depicts a baby becoming a man, and then becoming an old man with a cane. The artist has added a helpful "You are here" arrow to indicate that the lucky recipient of the card is very near the end of the waterslide. This kid is too young to be this aware of the trajectory of human life.
