I don't remember when I first learned I had both, but I thought it was cool. Sure enough, in 9th grade science we were filling out dominant/recessive charts and I asked about marking both; of course my teacher and classmates didn't believe me at first until I showed them. My teacher didn't know what caused it to happen, but guessed it might have been a unique mutation. Most days I totally forget I even have both - I don't really notice it at all. My ears aren't pierced either, and I don't want them pierced :)

I have right attached, left unattached. Really confused the Biology teacher in genetics class - in fact she decided to ignore me completely :( Maybe we should have an 'ear ear' meeting preferably somewhere exotic.

Wow there is an army of us I sort of felt left out until I found out that my cousin has the same ear lobe.. Whatever and I felt sort of normal.

I have this too!!!!!!!!!! I'm so proud, because who wants to b normal like every one else. This was a problem for me when I got my ears pierced though. But I'm still happy though!!!!!!!!!!

i also have it. My right earlobe is unattached and left one is attached. But at the same time my head is not in a normal structure. It seems like my head is combined into two heads. That is my right side of head is having different kind of ears, eyes, brows, mouths, chin etc as from the left side of my face. Its complitely different. You wont feel assymmetrical at the first time, but when you compare both sides you can find it. It seems like editing of two man's face into one. Not only my face, the whole side of my head is also very much assymmetrical. Because of this im feeling a lot of problems.

I have this too. I'd never noticed until we were filling out forms in biology, and I couldn't answer the yes or no question. I asked my teacher, and she first said I was lying because it wasn't possible, and then told me I was a freak! Not a great teacher, but i've always thought it was kind of fun.

In Bulgaria - They rounded up the "Multi-ors" (That's what your people are called) and sent them to work camps and government research facilities.

This was during the Communist era, but they whipped out literal village-fulls of your kind.

I heard a similar thing happened in Whales- Where they rounded up a big group of you guys and started doing tests on them.

I have this as well and recently I in science and my class was learning about genes and we discussed the tongue curl thing and the ear thing and I showed my science teacher my ears and he said it was impossible and pretty much ignored me the rest of the lesson haha :p i also showed my maths teacher and she was slightly confused but she thought it was cool

Talking of the shape of ears, which I have recently taken an interest in the subject. The shape of the ear is quite unique to an individual, and can be used as a identification tool.

This is awesome !! I also have two different ear lobes and a crooked smile and different feet, when I was younger I was ashamed but as I grew older I was more proud on being unique! Seeing Everyone's comments has me even more proud!

That scholarship idea would be nice too hahaha

I never bothered investigating it but recently my interest has been piked.
What does it mean? Am I some future evolution of human and likely to develop super powers momentarily?
If anyone doesn't believe me or wants to see I can provide photos.
Dude I have those too
