30 Times People’s Parents Were Much Cooler Than Them (New Pics)

Published 2 months ago

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that our parents were once young too. And just because these days they’re not up to date with the latest memes and social media trends, doesn’t mean they weren’t cool in their youth. In fact, browsing old family albums made some kids realize that their parents were much cooler back in the day that they could ever dream to be.

People over at the r/OldSchoolCool subreddit are sharing vintage photos of their parents, and they’re really making us wish we were as cool as they were back in the day. Check out the photos in the gallery below, and if you want more, see our previous post here!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
