I had always vacillated between being a mesomorph and an ectomorph. Now that I no longer
have the muscles even in places which are no longer there, I've got hair growing, out of
my ears while the hair on my chest is getting longer --along with the eyebrows.

Getting uglier, but smarter I guess --at least audible and visual-wise.

My older brother (one year), though, always vacillated between being a mesomorph and an
endomorph, but he's got hair lengthening and sprouting hair too while, to the contrary,
developing places he had never even had muscles for.

How do you figure that? Do you think he's getting smarter, and just uglier --or just me?
