In general, modern humans don't finish their skeletal development until late 20's, so I would guess there are other things maturing as well.

Gentle hugs, Mel! Tell GEB to watch out on mortal mallets from here forward.  >:D

Ah, yes, the going from AA to D cups after 30...

If my butt hadn't gone to a G "cup", I'd be perfectly happy with finally having cleavage!  ;) >:D

*clears throat* Uh, I went A to E. :P And yes, I really like the difference. >:D

...well too late now to hold out this hope, so I'll just have to continue telling myself that not having to buy or wear bras is a plus.  I had never heard of that, but my mom's ummm, lack of padding, would have likely put paid to that thought even if I had.

I always thought I was weird for finishing puberty in my 30's. Are you all saying it's normal?

Although I grew an inch in height between the ages of 25 and 30, sadly the "developing" (in my case) was entirely due to increased weight/girth.  I went from bottom end of the normal BMI range to top end [and over, but I'm back to "normal" now (thankfully)]...

That was the moment when I finally believed that most breast tissue is fat (unless one is nursing).  I wanted cleavage, and finally when I got it, I also had belly/bum, and no longer fancied fitted tops.  :(

Health can also play a fair role in how early or late one quits growing and developing. Before I got my health straightened out I swore I was done - then I got better and grew two inches, gained about thirty pounds (a good thing) and developed somewhat more of a shape. At 26.

That bruise is very impressive, Mel!

Yes, there are many factors in play with growth, such as nutrition, hormones, stress, etc.

I popped a very painful zit on my jawline. It wasn't gross as far as what came out of it, but because of the sound it made. It was SUPER crunchy.

I don't think I have posted this one before.  A long time ago, I had a huge black head in my nose, right inside, where, if my nose were pierced for a hoop, would be. I couldn't just pop it, it was too painful to touch, well to painful period. I put hot water on a washcloth and held it there for a while, and repeated a couple times to soften it up. I finally got it out, it was thicker than a pencil lead, and a 1/4 inch long.

I have never had it come back, thankfully.

I had what looked like a pimple in my arm pit.  BF tried to squeeze it for me but had no luck. So I went at it myself.  And found an ingrown hair a good half inch long.  Once I plucked that out?  I was able to squeeze out some gunk and it is healing nicely.
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

DH has several permanent black heads on his back. It's a challenge to DS and I and the last time, DS used a piece of hollow rod with rounded edges and got out a 1/3" core that looked exactly like a grain of rice with a black end. Ick and cool all at the same time.

VorGuy has a couple or more or less permanent black heads on his back...he resists strongly all "touching" that feels like it is going to turn into a "cleanup" because his back seems to be super sensitive to pressure.  He's insisting that it hurts...and it might, but he's had to have a sebaceous cyst removed (and they did a biopsy of it to make sure that it was "only" a cyst) because it was over fifteen years old & pressing on his spine.  He spent a week healing from the surgery and has a scar from the two or three stitches...

That said, I got a "small grain of rice with one black end" out earlier this week and he was insisting that it wasn't a true black head because it was still white...usually the "stuff" has aged & dried in place until it is some shade of light brown...

I find the bulbous end of a larger bobby pin works great for this sort of thing.

I have a pimple behind my ear, right at the crease where my ear and head meet.  It was quite large and popped fairly easily with a q-tip pressed against the side of it.  I sleep on that side and every morning since I've woken to the entire area coated in a crust of dried pus.  No amount of manipulating it seems to be able to clear it completely, but laying on it has it oozing like mad.

We even bought the blemish tool sold in the hygiene tool section, but this piece of rod works best! It gets the whole core out, without making a big area irritated.
