Wink Interesting little tidbit

Did you know that altho we stop growing at some point, our ears and nose keep on growing?

Maybe it's all the little lies we tell, lol! :HF2:

Not sure it's true or not but some say & think we shrink in height little bit with age. Become slightly shorter. (Some become more belly round with age......LOL!) If we do shrink a small amount, maybe that includes the head? Which will make the ears and nose seem larger???...

We shrink because some of our joints lose material. For instance, there are 23 discs in the average spine and they lose moisture content with age and a little bit of height in the process. Each one loses just a sixteenth of and inch and you lose well over an inch in height.

I know that to be a fact I have a bad back and I'm now 1.25" shorter than I used to be.
Don't know if my nose or ear size has changed any but neither of them work as good as they used to
