Some things are just cool and they always have been.
Bruce Springsteen. The Ramones. Martin Scorsese. Converse All-Stars. Also a whole lot of little things in life, too!
It’s just the way it is!
So let’s learn about some more eternally cool stuff.
AskReddit users talked about what was, is, and always shall be cool.
1. Nice and wholesome.
“Being the guy out of the group that waits for you when you have to stop and tie your shoe.
I LOVE that guy!”
“Being the type of person who is kind without trying to get recognized for it.
My whole family tries to be this way. As a kid, there were always strange people by the house……I asked my parents when I got a little older why they had a bunch of whacky friends.
They were nice to everyone unless you gave them a reason not to be. That lead to all the strangers and outcasts that were always dumped on by *ssholes feeling like they had a home and a friend.
I try to live by the same code because “normal” is nothing more than a setting on the dryer.”
3. That’s right.
“Sticking up for people in need.
I went to school with a mentally challenged girl from preschool through high school. She always said hi to me and I would ask her how she was, almost every single day.
One day in middle school she started walking across the street without looking and got hit by a car. She wasnt badly injured, just a few scrapes and bruises. Well a couple weeks after that she was trying to cross the street to get to school but the traffic was bad and she was scared to try to cross.
I had just parked my car and started walking to the school. I heard her yell my name from across the street and start waving. I yelled back and asked if she was ok. She asked if I would help her cross the street. I didn’t think anything of it and just kinda started walking across the street and stopped traffic.
I got to the side she was on and took her hand and I helped her across the street. She said thank you many times and we went about our day. I never thought it was a big deal but it must have been to her because throughout the rest of our school years she would randomly tell me thank you for helping her across the street.”
4. The best.
I’m not even into skateboarding and I think he’s cool.”
5. I agree.
On the ground, in a pair of pants.
Doesn’t matter. Finding money is always cool.”
6. All ages.
“For me it’d be LEGO.
It sparks a joy in most/all people, no matter the age.”
7. Better with age.
“Bob Ross and Mister Rogers get cooler with age.
Both MUCH cooler now than when I was a kid.
They are never going to hit maximum coolness.
They’ll just keep expanding.”
8. Be gentle about it.
“A gentle but witty comeback.”
9. The good stuff.
“A cold beer after a long day of work.
Pizza and beer after helping someone move.
Makes an average beer, average pizza, taste Godly.”
10. Lookin’ sharp.
I wouldn’t mind having one if I could pull it off.”
11. A classic look.
“Jeans, a white t-shirt and some black boots.”
12. Darn right!
“Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, and Dolly Parton.”
13. American icon.
“Converse will be cool until the end of time.
This is the hill I will die on.”
14. Skate or die!
It’s still absolutely awesome to watch and super fun to practice.”
15. Pretty awesome.
The Les Paul is like 60 years old and still cool.”
What do you think has never gone out of style and will always be cool?
