That human ears continue to grow as people age?

-- Maria (maria947@hotmail.com), November 15, 2000


ROTFLMAO....where the hell did THAT come from?

No, actually, I hadn't noticed.....I know people's feet get larger, but hadn't noticed the ears.

You realize of course, that that's all I'm going to be seeing now..... :-)

How does this observation jibe with the proverbial saying that "litle pitchers have big ears"?

-- Brian McLaughlin (brianm@ims.com), November 15, 2000.

Maria: I read that somewhere also. But, IMHO, the nose grows just as much than the ears.

*sigh* here's wishing other parts grew, um, the 'good' parts anyway.

double *sigh*

And why does the hair thin on the head but get thicker in the ears? Does seem rather cruel.

Why does the nose hair grow longer than beard hair, providing you let it?

Some of lifes most trying questions.

And why does the hair thin on the head

I've heard that all bodily hair thins and grows more sparse.

(Are we all using our real names and e-mails now?)...LOL

'tis true about nose and feet, as well. I oftentimes look at my 87- year old mother and wonder what her nose looked like in her youth. Right now, I'm convinced she simply had nostrils, 'cause she still has a cute little number for a nose.

The ears get larger as you grow older???? Say it ain't so!!

I may very well be able to fly, unassisted, in the next few years then. And will definitely have to be weary of strong headwinds....

People, people, not to despair. Unwanted body hair, shrinking noses, enlarging ears, senior moments, etc are a thing of the past. Please send $25.00 for a 3 month supply of Dr Lars Excellent Elixir.

LARS...you are quite the witty one..LMAO!

um, put me down for a bottle of the Brucie (does it come in a plain brown wrapper?)

-- Peg (pegmcleod@mediaone.net), November 15, 2000.

Can I get a combination #2 and #3, option one? Or does the #3, option one already...well...

For crying out loud bingo, stop acting like a floridian and make up your mind.

*sheesh :-)

thanks for the laughs!

"You realize of course, that that's all I'm going to be seeing now" Of course, ever since I read it, I've been looking in the mirror, carefully examining my parents, siblings and children. It's driving me nuts... And now I've finally passed it along. :)

Lars, Can I have a Tom Cruise?

-- Maria (anon@ymous.com), November 15, 2000.


Certainly, but it only comes in a short bottle.

-- Lars (lars@indy.net), November 15, 2000.

Your ears,nose etc don't get larger as you age..your head shrinks... Just the same as you are taller in the morning than at night
