@sbeelz: There are some (possibly African) tribes where people hang weights from their ears to stretch the lobes out as part of an enlightenment/wisdom ritual. Maybe most 'Westerners` who do such a thing don`t feel it is for enlightenment, but traditionally, yes it is.

What makes you think this is fake? I've seen dozens of people with their ears stretched big enough to do this.
Also, I don`t know anyone who stretches their ears because they think it`s "enlightening." Everyone I know who has stretched lobes- including myself- stretched their ears for the same reason anyone gets their ears pierced, or any other part of their body for that matter- they like the way it looks. But it seems f_vanmeter already made that point.
