This seemed very odd to me but it didn't seem any reason for alarm. Once back in the states we used our ear scoop on my friend's wife and our video was put on youtube resulting in a considerable number of views. Odd, huh? Anyway, someone pointed it out and after researching it is completely true.
There are two distinct genetically determined types of earwax: the wet type, which is dominant, and the dry type, which is recessive. While Asians and Native Americans are more likely to have the dry type of cerumen (gray and flaky), white and black peoples are more likely to have the wet type (honey-brown to dark-brown and moist). (Wikipedia)
I never realized that something like ear wax could actually be different in Asians but here I am, standing next to my wife laughing about our differences. These are the little joys of a bi-racial relationship--every day a discovery!
