Ever notice older people tend to have big ears? Like, Yoda big?
It's not your imagination. Our ears really do get bigger with age.
Studies show that our ears get around a fifth of a millimeter longer every year on average. That isn't much, but it does start to add up after a while. And those who start with bigger ears may see the most growth. Sorry, Will. Sorry, Michael. Sorry, Mr. President.
