Have you ever wondered why we have earlobes. Now don't tell me that we have them so that there is a good place to hang earrings!! I have earlobes but they have never had ear rings hanging from them. Doesn't most all the parts of the body have some particular use? Over time the body parts that have no use anymore seem to disappear. So why do we have earlobes? They must be important or genetics would have changed them or removed them. They are not the part of the ear that collects and funnels the sound waves into the ear canal. So, what are they for? I have no idea. I sure would like to hear from you all on what you think their purpose is.
I don't believe anyone knows. Some speculation is that maybe we used to run around on all fours and they would hang down over the ear canal protecting it. Now that doesn't make much sense to me. They would have to walk upside down on their hands for that to work. All those great minds can't say they don't know, they just have to come up with some reason no matter how far fetched it is. Now that starts me to wondering; what is the origin of the term "far fetched"? Now, you all have a great day and walk upright but let your ear lobes hang down. In other words, just be your natural self and have a very great day, you hear?
