Sweet, but that kid in the first shot looks far too old for kindergarten.
…my little brother is black. When he was 5, people would ask him if he was excited for 2nd grade. Not completely sure if race is the defining factor here, but uh… Yeah.
I dunno, I was tall for my age as a kid and most people though I was a grade or two ahead of what I was actually in. Its probably just from being tall.
Not because you were more intelligent than others in your grade? …………. 😛
No, because I was a slacker.
He wasn’t just tall, though. Plenty of kids look their age even if they’re taller. He was overall proportionally bigger than the other kids. That’s really what made him look so much older
I’m sure there’s a white dude somewhere who’s been head and shoulders taller than his classmates since age 4, and stopped getting ID’d at bars by 15.
Still. Y’know. Just sayin’.
I don’t get it. You were implying that kids can’t look older than their grade level… and now you’re saying it’s probably common? I wasn’t saying white people are incapable of looking older. I was going off the common feature between my brother and the kid in the photo.
And height isn’t the only thing that goes into looking older. It’s all about proportions.
Proportions are a factor too. I think its a combination of both. I know stocky short kids who were built like tanks, but were thought to be the same age or younger. I personally think it takes a taller more heavy built to pass as older. Or just give them a beard at like 14. Then they can pass as anything.
My older brother pretty much had a full mustache by the time he was 12, it added ten years to his face, but none to his body. Those were strange times lol
I loved having a full beard. The gas station near my home never ID’d me because of it. It was a fun, simpler time. I still rarely get ID’d even now, although I am well over the legal age to buy booze now.
I’m saying shit man it was a passing remark, it’s no big deal.
And I’m not saying it’s probably common, I’m saying that yeah dude you’re right it’s not exclusive to black people– in fact you know what it’s probably got nothing to do with it.
…And fuck me drunk do you want me to say ‘I’m sure there’s some kid around who is tall, has very large hands and feet and hairy legs and therefore looks older than his 7 years?
Jesus fucking Christ.
Calm, inside voices only. This is a place for lols, not anger. Now then, let’s just pack a bowl and continue with the lulz.
You. I like you.
I apologize. I think my comment sounded much more confrontational than intended. I was just trying to address each point that was made in your comment (though I think I perceived some that weren’t actually there).
Again, I apologize.
anyone concerned as to why the first photo is such good quality, seeing as it was likely taken close to 20 years ago?
actual camera vs phone ?
I guess….dont remember cameras still having that quality in the 90s
Maybe shot on film?
Yeah, what Videoguy said. Lots of people still had regular film cameras then.
I agree, hate to be a spoil sport on something liek this, but that car on left is not 20 years old, or it sure doesn’t look it.. Maybe, as I cant tell what it is.. ehh. good thought if its true.
Considering the person is probably 18-19 ish now and kindergarteners are usually around around 5, that would put the left pic at around 04, that is definitely an 04 van. At least from what I can tell.
you could be right, i was thinking it was a SUV with the extra bumper guard on hte bumper, most vans try to look like cars and have smooth bumpers, the SUV’s have that “extra” rubber stuff. Like the ideaan and hope its true, so I will go with your assessment.
I like how the only way the dad changed was his hair got a little longer haha
respect, for both
