What Does *This* Belly Button Say??
Aki Sinkonnen from the University of Helsinki in Finland has proposed the belly button of a woman is a “sign of vigor” and is used to predict the reproductive abilities of a woman. Sinkonnen says that this can be judged by the shape, symmetry, and placement of the navel.
Humans are one of the few animals that actually have a visible umbilical scar and with no apparent function. Furthermore, this scar is judged by other humans aesthetically. Some are beautiful, some not so much… Some are innies and some outties. What’s your preference? According to other studies most people prefer innies that are not too deep. More precisely, “t-shaped or oval and vertical, with a little hooding, and which don’t portrude”. Sinkonnen believes that many problems can be visible in the scar tissue left behind to what later becomes the belly button.
So I wonder what my belly button says… Perhaps that this baby-making factory is out of business! I’d rather just adorn my navel and call it a day. Actually, some would say that my navel indicates I’m crazy. They’re probably right. ;op
