    When you get fat, your feet also get fat. Sort it out chubby. 😉

    When you die, your hair and finger nails keep growing (apparently) so I guess we don’t stop growing when were alive.

    Your feet ‘grow’ because your arches stretch and collapse over the years.
    Your waist grows due to cake.

    Urban myth.
    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.

    Ha.
    Fat I’m not as people on here who know me will testify.

    Interesting about the arches! I didn’t know that.

    Cake could be a theme for ssuk14, or the largest collection of krispy kreme donuts.

    35″ waist with size 43 feet – you’re probably a bit chubby. 😀

    I have size 46 feet and a 32″ waist – and until recently I was fat.

    Your feet getting bigger is directly proportionate to your nob getting smaller. Fact.

    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.

    Age sucks……….

    I seem to have lost two whole UK shoe sizes in last three years. Shouldn’t be possible according to doc but it’s definitely happened.

    Had to photograph a grave once, loads of (ironically given the ginger thread)ginger hair growing out of it.

    Your ears continue to grow in to old age to compensate for the degradation in your hearing. This is why all old people have big ears.

    FFS, you can’t just leave it at that!
    Get on with it…..

    Good start with ‘Had to’ btw.

    So why does your scrotum keep growing too?
    Don’t think that affects your hearing.

    …….spare elbow skin for grafts for when you fall off your bike / zimmer / barstool

    We have great capacity for spiritual growth.

    Physically.

    In my 20’s i wore a size 43 trainer.
    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?

    Not read all the postings. Just the title.

    In my opinion we or the human form stop growing in statues. But mentally no
