What is this? A beer for ANTS!?

he and I are about the same age , I remember those mini Bud bottles too...

It's lucky your gigantic dad and his gigantic friends were able to find such a gigantic boat to have fun in. I feel like life must be kind of hard for such huge people but he seems really happy.

Those old 7 oz bottles, doubt they even make those anymore. Back in college, my roommate did a favor for a friend who promised him a six pack of beer as payment - he gave him a six pack of 7 oz bottles, my roommate was not pleased.

Is it just me, or do they each have their own light source?

Ray Charles could Photoshop a better montage than this.

Looks like the light is hitting opposite sides of their face. Look at the shadows.

They are each other's light source.

Children’s motor wheel, 1927

I like how the kid is on a perfectly straight road that is really wide and still manages to ride it straight into a pile of horse shit.

"Timmy, look out for that horse shit. Timmy turn a little, there's some horse shit. Timmy, you need to turn a little there, Timmy. Timmy, that's horse shit. Turn, Timmy. Timmy you're driving through horse shit Timmy. Good turning there, Timmy."

GENERAL KENOBI!!!!

Beats dealing with the airline companies!

Lyndon B. Johnson yelling at the pilots of a nearby plane to cut their engines so that John F. Kennedy could speak as JFK is trying to calm him down during the 1960 presidential campaign in Texas.

"Dude, chill"

-John F. Kennedy

Johnson always had a notorious attitude.

I'll bet after JFK calmed him down he casually walked over to one of the planes and shit in the cockpit.

What a beautiful pic of Kennedy.

Harrison Ford on the set of Star Wars, 1979

Harrison Ford on the set of Star Wars, 1979

He’s passing gas here, true story.

The whole series is called Star Wars.

This is clearly from Empire, since this is the scene where he's trying to get the hyperdrive working, right before the Falcon flies into the asteroid field.

Looks like they had a terrible time filming ...

Yup. Looks to be from Empire.

The Comet, 1935

☑ Not someone's attractive parent/relative ☑ Not a movie star ☑ Not a famous person ☑ Is clearly old and cool

Upvote.

NO WAY! Thanks for this post!

This train was epic! It was revolutionary because it was electric.

It think the comet was in service around the 40's.

I have a sudden urge to rewatch Snowpiercer.

The future seemed so much closer back then than it does now.

Alcohol smuggling lumber Truck, 1926.

Alcohol smuggling lumber Truck, 1926.

Reminds me of a joke:

'Hello, is this the Sheriff's Office?'

'Yes What can I do for you?'

'I'm calling to report 'bout my neighbor Virgil Smith... he's hidin' marijuana inside his firewood! Don't quite know how he gets it inside them logs, but he's hidin' it there.'

'Thank you very much for the call, sir.'

The next day, the Sheriff's Deputies descend on Virgil's house. They search the shed where the firewood is kept. Using axes, they bust open every piece of wood, but find no marijuana.

They sneer at Virgil and leave.

Shortly, the phone rings at Virgil's house.

'Hey, Virgil! This here's Floyd... did the Sheriff come?'

'Yeah!'

'Did they chop your firewood?'

'Yep!'

'Happy Birthday, buddy!'

This was such a creative time in American history. This one is great; though obviously, it looks like they got caught.

Hmm.. Maybe if I can get my neighbor to say I'm hiding cocaine in my weed, the cops will come and trim it for me

Is that a black cop?

Wouldn't think you'd see something like that. Maybe my views of American history are distorted.

Harold Lloyd getting distracted while driving in 1920.

Hard to blame him, the woman was showing her entire calf.

That harlot!

That jumping out of the car for the bag gag was awesome!

I can almost hear the chewing and the attitude.

Waste of time. Computers will never catch on.

In a computer class, from the looks of it!

Your mom is so edgy
