LOL LOL..It seems we had this discussion in another thread some time back Kind Sir.. but I can't remember which one!
I've heard numerous times that our ears and noses continue to grow throughout our lives because the cartilage continues to grow. Recently though I read that while that's true in some fish and in sharks, cartilage in humans does not continue to grow (I'll have to try an find where I read that). The explanation (in this article) for the larger ears and noses was that as we age our nasal and ear cartilage becomes thinner and loses it's elasticity causing the tip of nose to lengthen and droop and the same for our ears.
