People tattoo, pierce, and otherwise display their bellybuttons. But what if it served a purpose beyond its original biological one?

Reddit user Pretigee asked for people to contemplate their navels and answer:

If your belly button was a real working button, when you touched it, what would it do?

Here are some of the most creative responses.

Netflix & Chill

Turn on free WiFi.  Eulerich

Queen for A Day

It would play the chorus from 'Living On My Own' by Freddie Mercury on every device within a four mile radius.  magicbullets

Restat

Increase my immune system and reset me to an athletic build. Macular_Patdown

Forced Stop

It would open a task manager for everything that is going on in your body right now. If you wanted to, you could shut down your digestive system.  PyroPunk

Ting-a-Ling

Ring a bell, cause you know, Bell-y-Button.

I'll show myself out.  Huomenna

Cheater

Used for cheat codes - press it the right number of times with the right timing and you can fly or run super fast etc.... or you're the idiot poking his belly button while everyone else has superhero powers.  turbanator26

Dr. Whee

Make my bow tie spin.  HacksawJimDGN

Mute

Disable sound. Touch again = re-enable sound. Great when you want to focus on studying or when someone's being annoying and you wanna mute them.  The_Godlike_Zeus

Dysfunction

An on/off button for your erection (we'll call it a hard-on/off button) would be extremely useful. No more embarrassing moments when you're sitting in the hot tub with your family on vacation!  way_fairer

Disposal

I think it'd be a digestion aid. Like, you'd be really full, then you press your belly button and it digests everything immediately. Kinda like that thing inside of sinks which eats all the waste food and stuff.  samaroni1

It's a Gas

It would be a fart blocker. When you feel the urge and discomfort of a fart coming along, you push the button and it magically releases the built up air. No smell either!  mr_bendetti

Ranma 1/2

Switch genders: boy-girl-boy-girl-boy-girl...  NESoteric

Roll the Dice

+10 to all stats for 2 minutes. Cooldown is 24 hours.  kjoro

Party Favor

First, a radio voice in my stomach would count down from 10, and once the countdown hits 0, confetti pops out of my mouth.  [deleted]

It May Not Grow on Trees...

Every time I press it, a dollar bill, legal tender for all goods and services, slides out of my backside. If I ever need money, I can press my belly button a few times and pull money out of my ass like my mom always said she can't.  Nutella_Bacon

Keep a Bucket Handy

Automatic projectile vomiting, useful if I drink or eat something I shouldn't have.  Nutella_Bacon

Who Needs a Cloak

Turn me invisible!  jack9lemmon

No More Nytol

Make me fall asleep, whenever I wanted.  marfalump

Hoover

It would suck in the object in front of me and store it until I press my belly button twice, immediately releasing the object.  pgwolvpack

I don't see the appeal of these rooms.

Why would one enjoy being trapped in a room?

When you watch people trapped in a movie you cheer for their release.

But this activity has gotten super popular.

And people have gotten real creative in their escapes.

Redditor CaptainCatButt wanted to hear confessions from the great escapes. They asked:

"Escape Room employees, what's the weirdest way you've seen customers try and solve an escape room?"

Much of the nation continues to reel from the news that a leaked draft opinion indicated the Supreme Court's ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization will move to strike down Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision that protects a person's right to choose reproductive healthcare without excessive government restriction.

Many people remember what it was like in the days before women could seek an abortion; many innocent women died in the absence of proper medical care or were forced to birth children they could not afford, trapping them in poverty.

But could a ruling overturning Roe v. Wade signal the loss of other rights in the future, especially those decided on the right to privacy, on which Roe was hinged?

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor thisiscubes asked the online community,

"Americans of Reddit, what are your thoughts on Roe v. Wade being overturned by SCOTUS as per draft reports?"
