Younger generations these days are constantly taking photo’s of absolutely anything to post on social media and garner as much electronic praise as possible until they post their next photo.
However, the problem with this culture that the current generation has developed is that they spend so long trying to look as perfect as possible that the photo isn’t a reflection of who they actually are, but what they think everyone should want them to be.
Well, it’s time to start taking notes millennials, ’cause here are 20 photos (taken with none of the filters or effects that you have nowadays!) that prove your parents were actually miles cooler than you may ever be!
1.) Tank Instructor Mother
Reddit user danabre posted this photo of their mother as a tank commander in 1984 and it might just be the coolest thing I’ve seen since I last checked my yearbook photo. People would spend a fortune nowadays trying to make a photo of themselves looking as cool as this, but the fact that this is authentic is just priceless. You go girl!!
2.) Dad Pinning Chuck Norris

Yep, this photo shows Reddit user LanaDelRayQuaza’s dad pinning the veritable meme factory and martial artist Chuck Norris… if that were me, I’d be leaving copies of that photo literally everywhere I went.
