Do we ever stop growing?
When you die, your hair and finger nails keep growing (apparently) so I guess we don’t stop growing when were alive.
Your body shrinks when you’re dead because you usually stop drinking water, so your existing hair just looks longer.
I’m sure this is correct, but I’ll just pop down the cellar and check.Posted 4 years agosomafunkSubscriber

Nope, an ex was a pathologist and she debunked this theory by showing me her “project”, the surrounding tissue shrinks back exposing more Keratin which does not shrink thus giving the appearance of continual growth after death.
When i was 20 i wore a 42″ trainer
Now i’m 40 i still do
When i was 20 i had a 32″ waist,
Now i’m 40 i still do
When i was 20 i could ride 100 miles a day, every day and not feel like death
Now i’m 40 the thought of riding 100 miles a day, every day makes me feel like death
When i was 20 i could fall off at speed and bounce back up with no injuries,
Now i’m 40 i fall off and hit the ground with a sickening expulsion of air whilst squealing like a stuck pig thrown down a flight of stairs and i hobble to my feet flailing for any support whilst wondering how much this is gonna cost to put right at the osteopath.

Had to photograph a grave once, loads of (ironically given the ginger thread)ginger hair growing out of it.
FFS, you can’t just leave it at that!
Get on with it…..
Good start with ‘Had to’ btw.

Your ears continue to grow in to old age to compensate for the degradation in your hearing. This is way all old people have big ears.Posted 4 years ago
So why does your scrotum keep growing too?
Don’t think that affects your hearing.aaMember
In my 20’s i wore a size 43 trainer.Posted 4 years ago
Then, shoes were made smaller and I needed a 44, which is what i’ve been wearing for donkeys years.
Now, my toes are touching the end of my cycling shoes (i have cut my toe nails….).
I also refuse to accept i’m a 35” waist!
Do we continue to grow into the grave?
