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

People Describe How They Survived Near Death Experiences
Mick Haupt/Reddit

As morbid as it is, death is the inevitable yin to life's yang.

The inevitable end of our mortality looms ahead for all of us, but hopefully it's not for a long time.

That doesn't mean there are close calls along the way.

Not everyone is fortunate, but there are the lucky few who somehow managed to cheat death and lived to talk about their close calls.

A "fun fact" refers to a piece of information that might not be widely known.

Though, the "fun" in "fun fact" is often widely debatable.

Indeed, more often than not, people find or are told a "fun fact" about anything from an animal species to a famous celebrity which might make them want to cry or even throw up.

We've all heard some conspiracy theories about certain businesses, most of which are outrageously false.

That laundromats are simply a facade for shadier practices (including, not so ironically, money laundering) or that the Coca-Cola company invented "New Coke" with the express purpose of improving sales on original Coke.

But every now and then, we can't help but wonder what really goes on behind closed doors in certain professions.

And are eager to hear all the juicy tidbits from people working in that industry.

Finding a healthy work/life balance is extremely difficult.

Depending on their jobs, some people are barely home in time to spend any quality time with their loved ones, and weekends are hardly relaxing, as they are often devoted to chores and errands.

These are only a few reasons many people have pushed to adopt four day work weeks.

And while there seem to be multiple advantages to one's mental health and self-esteem, could eliminating 8 hours of work possibly have any downsides to it?
