40 Photos Proving That Sometimes Genes Like To Hit Copy-Paste

Published 4 years ago

If you ever wondered why you look nothing like your parents, you might want to check out some pics of your grandparents – you might be surprised. Genetics are a pretty funny thing – sometimes they just like to skip a whole generation only to appear in full bloom in the next one. Just ask Twitter user Shelby Contra – the woman recently shared side-by-side pictures of herself and her grandmother, and the two look practically identical! Her tweet quickly went viral, receiving almost 555k likes, and soon enough more people responded with their own comparison photos – check them out in the gallery below!

I have a hereditary gap in my eyebrow. It’s a portrait of my great great grandfather on the left, my dad also has the gap as well. It doesn’t always show, I guess because my eyebrows are kinda unruly and curly so sometimes the gap is covered, I also sometimes fill them especially because I’ve had people ask if I shaved the gap to be “cool”.

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?



copy-pasted genes, kids resemble parents, offspring resemble parents, people resemble grandparents, Shelby Contra, uncanny resemblance
