38 People Discovered Their Grandparents Were Way Cooler Than Them

Wow, it’s truly impressive!


Grandparents are usually seen as an old school who knows nothing much about the present world. This is, however, a big myth. If you check closely, some of these grandparents are way cooler in their youthful age than yours presently.

Just recently, Waterballoon, decided to write up something uniquely different and we requested for pictures of grandparents who had acted cool in their younger days, so far the outcome has been hilarious.

Now we have a collection of grandparents that are super duper while in their heydays. Ranging from the grandmas that are catching fun in the Ernest Hemingway to the modeling session-1950s in Volvos to grandpas pulling off a motorbike stunt as well as sledding through Antarctica – our compilation will certainly make you adjust your social life.

While we have a collection of grandpas who had also played with their pets polar bears, our list will make you question if you have been doing the right activities in your leisure time.
