Its not just you.I’ve thought the same. Seems like every year they look younger and younger
First, youre getting older... ;) But mainly its because they WERE more mature and harder - had to be. Life was tougher then and you had to 'grow up' and get tough earlier.
Also, there wasn't a 'youth culture' , so they dressed and acted more adult. But mostly it was because they were tougher.
Years ago, I went to the 'school department' offices in the little town where I graduated high school, doing a small bit of research for an article. Whilst there, i saw stacks of annuals, so i perused them... I noticed the same thing; my 'class' - 78 - looked older and more mature than 88, and 98 looked like second graders. 48 made 'us' look like little kids. Im sure - even as young as you are Mr Cheapsunglasses, that you would notice the same thing. Give it a few years and the trend will reverse given the way things are going...
