This is ridiculous. Another way for the wrong people to breach our privacy and security. 😯
Read it. Call me paranoid. If you want. (Does the Google Glass earpiece have a sniffer?)
Just beware of the next person offering to whisper a secret in your ear. Especially if he puts his nose up to your ear…
“Our previous research has shown that underarm odors can convey a great deal of information about an individual, including personal identity, gender, sexual orientation and health status,” study author George Preti, an organic chemist at Monell, said in a press release. “We think it possible that earwax may contain similar information.”
The article continues with a(n unintentional) good, old-fashioned math story problem. I present it here as a service to school teachers needing supplemental material for struggling students:
For their study, Preti and his colleagues identified odor-producing compounds contained in earwax obtained from 16 healthy men. Eight of the men were Caucasian while the remainder of the men were of East Asian descent.
How many men were of East Asian descent?
Well, let me stick one more thought in your ear:
“Earwax is a neglected body secretion whose potential as an information source has yet to be explored.”
Please, Fox. Aren’t we spied on enough already? 🙄
In addition to keeping others’ noses out of your ears, clean that tattle-tale wax out of your ears. Protect your personal information with The Elephant Ear Washer (by Doctor Easy). 😆
OK, enough foolishness. 😳 Here’s something inspirational: Did You Missing Seeing Jesus?
