Heart and ears... truth, taboo or bullshit?!?

Earlobe crease (ELC), i.e., a line running diagonally from the bottom of the ear opening to the ear's lower tip. I first discussed this in 1997 (The Straight Dope: Why do older men have hair growing in their noses and ears?), observing that, based on research then available, if you had hairy ears with creased lobes, you were basically a heart attack waiting to happen. The jury's still out on the hairy part, but ELC's status as portent of doom has been abundantly confirmed... read the following... and other (ears related) weirdos, including hairy ears and earwax... weirdos?!?!
