I guess Is rather see filler than idiots who use spacers to make their earlobes huge...

But in either case, stop wearing such heavy, large earrings.

"As we get older, our collagen starts to deteriorate. When that happens, the ears start to deflate, sag, and become floppy."

Well anyway it can't be as stupid as the guys who get giant holes in their earlobes.

Well, there's also the fact that in certain Asian cultures, lobes can be seen as a sign of luck. I have dangly bottom lobes, and having lucky ears was something Aunties would coo over. Or at least comment on before shoving more food at me...

Well that's a little simplistic:

Earlobes as a character
Classroom exercises on earlobe genetics say that there are two distinct categories, free (F) and attached (A). However, many of the papers on earlobe genetics have pointed out that there are many people with intermediate earlobes (Quelprud 1934, Wiener 1937, Dutta and Ganguly 1965). El Kollali (2009) classified earlobes into three types, based on whether the attachment angle was acute, right, or obtuse. To make the picture above, I searched for pictures of professional bicyclists (because they have short hair), found 12 with their ears showing, and arranged them from free to attached. It doesn't look to me as if there are just two categories; instead, there is continuous variation in the height of the attachment point (the "otobasion inferius") relative to the lowest point on the earlobe (the "subaurale"). My own earlobes are exactly halfway in between the two extremes; I couldn't tell you whether my earlobes should be considered free or attached.

I have this weird hard nodule in my left earlobe about the size of a large BB that just kind of appeared out of nowhere.  I want it surgically removed (alien tracking device!) but I'll live with it.

Silicone fillers have a tendency towards not staying where you inject them.

Also, there is the whole problem of them entering the blood stream and causing strokes.

I'd just be happy to remove the hair. Seriously, between shaving, plucking, trimming, and so on, I'm about ready to go Van Gogh on my goddamned head. I've got to find a hard wax kit for ears...
