A Reddit user posed the following question to teens of Reddit: “What’s cool nowadays?” And the teens of Reddit certainly did not disappoint. The surprising thing, though, is that despite the fact that we like to consider teenagers to be The Worst and get off my lawn — if you take away modern technology, teens today really aren’t that much different than they were when most of us were growing up. So basically, spoiler alert! Kids still like having sex, getting wasted, converse sneakers and identifying with decades that they don’t live in. Time really is a flat circle. For some of the more insightful responses, keep reading below!

Kids are also really into grunge today. The 70’s to us = the 90’s to them. Kind of a terrifying thought.

GRUNGE-2

GRUNGE

Again with the eyebrows, in London this time. Also kids still like to get away with wearing the least amount of clothing possible. No surprise there.
