An Austrian scientist claims to have solved the mystery of belly button fluff.
Georg Steinhauser, a chemist, has discovered a type of body hair that traps stray pieces of lint and draws them into the navel.
His observations showed that ‘small pieces of fluff first form in the hair and then end up in the navel at the end of the day’.
“The hair’s scales act like a kind of barbed hooks,” he said.
My Lord and my God! Is it just possible that, given infinite time, all matter would wind up inside of our navels?
