LA-based illustrator Ian Higginbotham has put together a few comics that show the similarities between young students and their (much) older counterparts, and it turns out they go even deeper than museum ticket discounts. After reading these, you might find that you relate to the old folks - or youngins - in your life a little bit more.

Vote for the comics that sum up your life the most below, and share them with anyone who might benefit from a new perspective on the supposed 'age gap.'
