28 Photos “Proving” That People Aged Much Faster In The Past

Published 4 years ago

Looking at your grandparents’ pictures, it seems like they somehow went from toddlers to young adults, completely skipping the teenage phase. Someone even proposed a theory that people aged much faster in the past – and they just might be onto something.

People are sharing photos of their grandparents to the Old School Cool subreddit, and you’ll quickly realize why someone came up with this crazy-sounding theory – see them in the gallery below! And don’t forget to check out 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?



comparing photos of people back then, humans looked more mature in the past, old photos, Old School Cool subreddit, people age at different rates, people in the past aged faster, stess and sunlight make you age faster, young people looking more mature, young people looking older, younger people looked older in the past
