Grandpa,why are your ears so big?

He told me one day that as you grow older, your ears grow bigger. Today, i was waiting in queue in DBS bank and i saw many old men with humongous ears. At the same time, they were giving off a sour smell too. I wonder if it's an "old people's" smell, because they don't look dirty.

I quickly glanced around for old women, and i realised their ears are still proportionately shaped (thankfully!)

I did a Google and found that there is research done on the correlation of men in particular, their age and the size of their ears. As research found out, the cartilage in the ear continues to grow as one ages (probably accelerates too), thus the large ears at old age!

However, large ears according to Chinese superstitions, are associated to longevity. And it seems to be proven that  old men with smaller ears are linked to more heart diseases.

Men, watch your ears. Oh well, even if they grow to be as big as Mickey Mouse's, there's not much you can do to prevent it from happening anyway. Marry someone not because of looks, because looks fade.
