I've seen a lot of post by people worried about what seem to me to be really minor issues.

For instance:
"My breasts are too small!"
"My penis is tiny!"

You know what really matters to me? The part that really concerns me?

All you mutants out there with detached earlobes and chins with no cleft!

Forget your boobs or your penis! There is something larger at stake! (Pardon the pun)

How can you be concerned about your penis being a half inch shorter than average when your chin doesn't have a cute little cleft in it?

How can you worry about your breasts being too small when you have to hide those hideous detached earlobes whenever you go out in public?

For Heavens sakes! If you're going to obsess over an imperfection, make it something that really matters!

detached earlobes are a DOMINANT trait, and they are the generally accepted wild type. so thisguy, it seems that you are a mutant.

time to do a punnett square...

oh, and in eastern cultures, long DETACHED earlobes are a sign of luck and prosperity. me and my auspicious ears...

Detatched earlobes make you a mutant? Woohoo! Maybe now I have a chance with the dude that played Cyclops in X-Men...

Seriously though, it's weird, in my immediate family of 7, my son and I are the only ones with detatched earlobes. So sometimes it feels like we are. No cleft chins though...

Mutants unite!

I am no mutant!

I am of the One True People. Those with attached earlobes and cute cleft chins! ;p

I just felt like pointing out the fallacy inherent in obsessing over the size of your boobs, or whether you need a third leg in your pants. Or whether you were too fat, etc.

Prepare for the Cleansing, oh ye unholy ones of the detached earlobes! The time of reckoning is upon ye! I am the Angel of Death, yadda yadda yadda...*yawn*

I wonder what's on TV?

bettie, assuming that cleft chin and detached earlobes are genetically linked traits, that must make you a recombinant genotype and phenotype.

You laugh, but as a graduating senior in college I was made fun of by my entire biology class, including the professor, for not having detached earlobes. Some people pointed at me and some wanted to move my hair so that they could see my "abnormal" earlobes better. I kid you not. Before that, I loved my cute little ears, but for several months afterwards I looked at my ears and wanted to magically be able to change them. Fortunately, I got over it.

forget about detached earlobes and cleft chins.... what about all those freaks out there with their second toe longer than their big toe???!!!

my sociology teacher brought this topic up in class one day. he said people with longer second toes have not completely evolved from their ancestors, the tree hangers!

of course, he was making the same point that this entire thread is about.

he also included a little story about the birth of his daughter. he said he was so worried she would have longer second toes like his wife. but when she was born, she actually had longer THIRD toes. but he said this was okay because it signified the evolution into creatures with FOUR HANDS. LOL.

anyway, i just thought i would throw that in. by the way, i have attached earlobes, so whoever posted last and said you were subject to scrutiny from your classmates, don't feel bad.

Since posting doesn't always convey tone, I thought I'd clarify my last post. I didn't mean to complain about how I felt inadequate. I just wanted to point out how all of us here are enlightened enough to laugh about discriminating on the basis of earlobes, whereas some people will use any ammunition they can against people who are not like them.

Boy, do I always have long sentences. Anyway, I hope I made myself clearer.

My second toe is longer then my big toe. But they say it's a sign of a sprinter or someone that's good at athletics!....hmmm, hey I did win age champion this year at out athletics carnival...maybe my athletic abilities are evolving...or...maybe not..but ah well, I like my feet, and my toes!

If I could be a mutant, I'd be like Storm from X-Men..she was mad! Wish I could control the weather, it's bloody freezing here atm! brrr...

funny, i was gonna post a thread about toes and feet, but Annzy beat me to it!

now that it's sandal season out here, i'm noticing that more people have feet shaped differently from me than ppl whose feet look similar to mine.

are there more ppl whose big toes are the longest, or are there more ppl whose second toes extend past their big toes?

My second and third toes stretch past my big toe. whenever I mention this, ppl tell me, "Your shoes must fit really well!" I never thought about this, but yeah, shoes usually are comfy for me.

It all goes along with different body types, and clothes being made for only one body type. Shoes are made for ppl like Anzzy and me, but what about everyone else? Are they to suffer bunions and ingrown nails???

I have teeny tiny toes. My big toes, is the biggest. None of my other toes are longer. I have short toes, and i can wear a size 4 in shoes.

My second toe is slightly longer than my big toe, and my middle toe is about the same as my big toe. I have fairly wide, flat feet, so it can sometimes be difficult to find shoes that fit properly. However, when I do find shoes that fit, I'm generally fairly comfy in them, and as I'm not much of a shoe person anyway, it doesn't bother me.

I can't really curl my tongue, in fact, i can't do much with my tongue. It's unusually short. My tongue web(sorry, dont know medical terms) is almost at the end of my tongue, so if i stick it out much past an inch to inch.5(heh) it starts to get cut on my teeth.

Am i the only mutant with a short tongue?

Attached earlobes and no cleft chin. What does that make me?

Plus, two oof my toes are webbed, the tops of my ears are malformed and my sinus tracks on my neck were open when I was born(I now have two pretty cool scars).


I do actually think I'm a mutant.

Tongue curling is a dominant trait, too...

A cool little scientific example ensued when I found out my mum couldn't, but my dad could; so my brother and I have one curling gene and one non curling gene, heheh.

In one of his university textbooks, my father has a picture of a kid who could put three curls in his tongue, all next to each other. I always wished I could do that.

My whole family can curl their tongues, I think, and I can make this weird little dent in the left side of my tongue, but not the right.

wow! Some people here really are mutants! Just kidding! But I have no cleft chin, and detached earlobes, and as for my toes....my second toe is the same length as my pinky finger . as for my tounge, well, I can do some pretty amazing things with it, but I can't twist it 360 degrees....That's more talent than what I have!
