    The uncanny world of genetics. I wonder if their father-son similarities go beyond appearances.

    • Definitely weiners

      You're talking about their weiners, right? I'll bet she's talking about their weiners.

        ahahahaha touche sir

      • Leigh

        lol no that would still be physical appearances =P lol but you can think what you would like!

      • Funny

        Bahahahaha! That was one of the funnier comments I've seen here

    • Master_Rahl

      I think there is more to it than looks. I have a few mannerisms that have been said to be identical to some of my father's. I grew up without him, so it wasn't a learned thing either. Kind of weird.

      • Leigh

        at least someones mind is on the same track!

        nature vs nurture =)

      Seems we have some proof of that right here. Both have the same poor taste in clothes and wear cheap, black, tee shirts all the time.

    my stomach hurts, and i dont know if i have to poo or fart.

    • Craigery

      I woke up in the middle of the night last night with terrible gas pains. Sat on the toilet expecting an explosion of diarrhea, but instead just let a big fart. Felt better afterward, went back to bed.

      Why not both?

    #3 Sure hope his daughter doesn't look like that.

  • Jinn

    It's easy when you cut your hair and shave your face exactly the same. Most people look one of their parents.

  • Drew

    Yeah… not the greatest post …

  • back2worknow

    This does not pass the smell test…

    Was there some project that used the same backdrops for all the sets of photos from the same time. All the 1976 ones are identical and all the 2012 ones are identical. If this is legit, I would like to see some proof.

    Oh and one final thought… Where is the funny shit and the half-naked women?

      "Oh and one final thought… Where is the funny shit and the half-naked women?" . . .

      Every other post, dipshit.

      • back2worknow

        Thank you Truth Bomb for answering my rhetorical question. I feel better at night now knowing that some one out in ChiveLand can put my mind at ease. Although I do not understand the involvement of "dipshit" into the reply. Was that meant to attack my fragile sensibilities? I am saddened that there are people on theChive that feel the need to berate another anonymous person. What is this world coming to when people can't post anonymous replies to random posts without fear of name calling and belittling? *I cried a little at your hurtful remark… not a lot, just a single tear rolling down my cheek.

        Oh well back2worknow before someone really important berates me!

          Welcome to the internet. It's unclear if you're going to like it here.

          • back2worknow

            I thought that theChivers were different. I am learning that is not so. The fact that we all love boobs and butts doesn't overcome all differences. There will always be some pissed off poster that resorts to name calling. It's ok… I still enjoy it here. At least there are not nearly as many douchebags and pedophiles as 4chan. Thank god!

    • Gun_guy

      Do you not realize they are all of the same father and son? All on the left are are the same and all on the right are the same

    • mittens

      Here's a radical theory for your consideration, b2wn; maybe it looks like all the photos were taken in the same place, because they were taken in the same place. Maybe, and I know this is going to require a huge leap of faith, just maybe, the dad still lives in the same house, and they took the photos there.

      • back2worknow

        Hmmm. Interesting point. What I find more interesting is that they haven't replaced the curtains. Well maybe replaced, but with the same style? I guess that would be possible if Mom were out of the picture to tell them to get better looking curtains. Even more interesting is that they look like a dark haired Chad Kroger and that is FAIL no matter the circumstance.

        • Fap

          Someone comes up with a plausible response to back2work's question and he becomes a hypocrite, belittling the people in the photos. Youre a little prick stfu.

          • back2worknow

            Thank you for your interesting and thoughtful feedback. You are entitled to your opinion as is everyone here. Do you think that calling me a little prick should possibly offend me? I cried a single tear in the above post when someone called me a name so I am all out of tears today. So I am sorry that I have none for you. How 'bout a *sniff?

              The 1976 photos are in the same day, in different stages of shaving, from full beard to clean, looks like the dad was taking pictures with different stages/styles of facial hair as he shaved his beard. The son just replicated that. Curtains look like a different color and texture, hard to tell since photos are in black and white, not hard at all for the son/anyone to replicate that backdrop.

              • back2worknow

                Faith in Chivers restored!

                Great explanation. I can see your point and you wrote a clear and concise response. You are a great asset to this site.

                Thank you for your reply and leaving out any name calling.

                +1 thumbs up to your post!

        • Andy Valentine

          On the left, the curtains are obviously wool, whereas on the right they're obviously a nylon / polyester blend. I thought that was obvious. Obviously.

          • back2worknow

            That would explain everything! 😮 I should have known from the lack of sheen on the 1976 curtains. Your powers of perception are impressive sir. *I take my hat off. 😉

  • bobby buchae

    I look like the the guy that delivers our water, mom said she doesn't see it and to stop asking so many damn questions.

  • Suck me dry

    #3 at the bottom looks like he's been sucked dry

  • KeepinCalm

    #3 second row. I loaded it up in photoshop, made a copy of dad, place on top of son, and then made dad's pic transparent by 50% – *nearly* the exact same picture. From the neck up everything aligns perfectly, from the neck down..not so much. smells like bullshit… o.O

  • Soldasd
  • Lucky

    Looks like Marky Ramone's retarded brother

  • Danno Maurer

    I have the same issue…look exactly like my dad did when he was my age

  • Penal_Colony

    Holy shit, a guy who looks like his dad!!! STOP THE WORLD

    It's that hippie-hipster connection!

    Maybe it's all the weed.

  • Brent

    Its a little creepy that his mom knows what its like to have sex with him.

  • Luke

    Great story Chive you should tell it at partys……………….If your invited.

  • waitaminnit

    The father looks an awful lot like Donovan (If you don't know who that is, ask your grandparents).

  • John Richard Scott

    And that's why Back To The Future is feasible.
