I am the kind of guy that ponders why evolution or God has shaped us they way it has.

For example, the things that make a woman beautiful can generally be explained in evolutionary terms, they are all traits that would be helpful to survival for mother and/or child. Clear skin indicates good health, good teeth are obvious, wide hips for child bearing, wide set eyes improve depth perception, etc.

On a related note I have noticed that as men age their ears, nose and eyebrows and back become extremely furry while at the same time the head looses hair. I have often joked it is just gravity at work pulling the hair downhill but seriously, what evolutionary purpose could these traits possibly have?

It a question I have pondered in the background during spare cycles for quite a while now and have never had a good explanation for. Today I had an epiphany though!

At the office two younger female coworkers were standing in the hall chatting and an older guy walked by them. After he passed I could hear them giggling and whispering “OMG, did you see his ear hair? Gross!”
“Ewwwww, Totally!”

Ah ha! The light bulb flashed! I got it! All that hair is nature’s way of making sure men don’t have sex after they have reached an age where sexual activity could harm or even kill them! All that excess hair makes sure that no matter how much Viagra they take they just ‘aint getting any!

Well, I’m glad I finally figured that one out.

Did that realization also make you go check your ears for any hair?

They should make a combination viagra/Rogaine pill. Not saying that I would have to take either, but they should...
