The best I can tell, it seems to be a lint accumulation. Women don't seem to get it (it fascinates us that men do), and all belly button lint seems to be blue for some reason. It's a true mystery of the universe. :tongue2:

At the moment I have no belly button fluff. However, in the past I have had belly button fluff, though I couldn't tell you what color it was. It might have been blue. Maybe it has something to do with stomach hair channeling fiber-rich sweat into the belly button, which could explain why women do not get it so much.

The lint is actually white, but it appears to be blue due to the fact that it accumulates under pressure.

I am about to start an experiment, and need volunteers to help, i propose a
50 ,50 test where 50% of subjects swath their belly buttons in a bandage,
and 50% wear red tee shirts, if the BF is still found to be blue then it
must be some mysterious agent at work.
Please sign up below.

Do you have the maths to prove this? :biggrin:

Speak for yourself, Ivan. I'm pretty sure that the rest of us guys here don't wear girdles. :tongue:

I'll do it, as long as I'm not the only one.

Incidentally, I had a shower this morning (cleared out my belly button), and have been wearing a red t-shirt all day long. No fluff yet, but I'll wear the same top tomorrow and post my results.

well I figure I'm high up in the field of Button Fluff - I love the magical stuff (oh boy my third poem of the day).
I have to excavate buttons daily in search of this mystical fluff.
So far I have come across white, blue AND redish-orange fluff (he wore a blue shirt that day so don't ask) :bugeye:

I have never had the fortune to produce fluff myself what with being a girlie and all that.

But I will certainly volunteer himself for the Fluff Formation Feory

Day 2.

Having worn the same red t-shirt for two hot, sweaty days in a row has provided me with a number of conclusions:

- The study needs to be run for a longer period of time. I have produced absolutely NO fluff since I started the experiment yesterday morning.

- Wearing the same t-shirt for two days in a row in this weather (with no interim shower or bath) is a sure way to make a young, active male smell absolutely rancid.

A miniscule amount, and the bandage chafes, i have a red middle.

Never fear, it doesn't seem that bathing eliminates belly button lint anyway. See if you acquire any from the towel. I know my towels leave fuzz all over the bathroom (if I put out red towels, I have red "dust" on all the fixtures, and if I put out blue towels, it's blue "dust" etc.) This still isn't explaining why men acquire belly button fuzz and women don't. This still mystifies me.

This requires close inspection of the female belly button, maybe they are not
as deep as mens, i need data, please send belly button dimesions, sticky outs
need not apply.

Maybe the hair surrounding your belly buttons acts as a lint trap?

Ok in the interest of science i am going to shave around my belly button,
henceforth BB, i will start with a BB centric metric of 10mm, as BHs are prone
to the posited hawking radiation, henceforth HR, i will have to monitor for HR induced re foliation, in tandem with this test, i will run a monte carlow stimulation
I predict a 90% +5%- 3% drop in lint production.
If my predictions are outside error bars, a new science is indicated.
