Way too much information…about belly button fluff

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.

Dr Steinhauser made his discovery after studying 503 pieces of fluff from his own belly button in a three year study. 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. “Abdominal hair often seems to grow in concentric circles around the navel.”

I didn’t know camouflage clothes worked so well…

A 56-year-old man was slightly injured after being hit by a car…

Police said they responded to the scene…to find the pedestrian in the road, and the driver of the car that hit him standing by.

According to witnesses, the man, who was wearing camouflage clothing, was not in a crosswalk and walking against the light when he tried to cross South Winooski Avenue.
