141 Old People Who Don’t Let Their Age Define Their Personality

Posted by admin on

Age is just a number, they say. Yet the vast majority of humanity is hooked on anti-aging skincare, anti-aging lifestyles, anti-aging everything. In fact, a survey has previously shown that a whopping 87% have a fear of getting old, also known as FOGO. Feeling anxious about wearing out before the warranty is something not entirely new to most people, but for many, the reservations revolve more around the outside rather than the inside.

But what if we told you that some seniors go way up the cool-ometer, leaving us, the self-obsessed millennials, far behind? You gotta see it to believe it, so ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Bored Panda’s compilation of the coolest elders.

From a smashing sense of humor to incredible skills, enviable physical shape, and the most youthful mindset, there’s a lot to learn from these badasses who may not have turned back time, but figured out how to get the most out of it. Psst! Our previous post with 90 Grandmas Who Are More Badass Than You awaits right here.
