Why did evolution invent eyelids but not ear flaps?

I dunno. Comes from all those people who say they are offended by seeing things they were taught are bad to see.

“If you don’t like what you see, don’t look.” Easy enough, you just close your eyes.

But when you’re hearing something you don’t want to hear, you have to at best put fingers over your ears, because you don’t have any earflaps.

I guess the human ear didn’t evolve around country music, thus creating a need to block the sound. Snicker,

    Cats have the equivalent of ear flaps. They’re ears are highly directional like satellite dishes and they have full control over the rotation. Talk to your cat and watch him rotate his ears away so he doesn’t need to hear you. I wish I could do that.
