Yes and sometimes a belly button smells bad but that's because it is a hole in the body.

There was a girl I knew in High School who didn't have one. Incredibly odd!

That's impossible. Her pants were up too high.

Sad.
It doesn't just happen to the experienced.

It often happens with the very inexperienced too.

Well, you probably can't not have a belly button if nothing has ever happened in that area, but some surgeries can remove the skin in that area, or an injury could scar over it, etc.

Test tube babies are still grown in a uterus like any other fetus.

And yes, people can have no belly buttons, it happens when the cord is just left to fall off naturally.

Everyones umbilical cord falls off naturally, the last inch or two which they leave on anyway.

If you had an umbilical cord, as humans to date have had, then you have some kind of belly button. Unless it was surgically removed. Or god performed a miracle on your belly button.

for me, hi-fi publications exist to inform us of new products and entertain. they're an assest in that they bring new products to light that an individual may not know about - nothing more.

why does a reviewer need to prove anything, and why would you trust someone else's opinion without listening for youself? trying to prove subjectivity is a worthless/pointless endeavor. individuals have their own preferances in marketing, asthestics, music reproduction and musical tastes, not to mention the fact different rooms (ears/headshape) have different acoustic properities from one another. it's no different than try to ask someone to prove why they feel that a particular Beethoven symphony is better than another. perception is reality - it just is.

the Objectivists get their undies in a bundle for no reason. leave use Subjectivists to enjoy our music reproduction in peace.

btw, i prefered my Stereovox digital IC ($150) over the Benchmark recommended IC ($30), and kept it as i felt it was a good value in terms of sonic gain. does this make me delusional?

Excellent point. I see it the same way. Just info and an opinion. You need the context of that reviewers past reviews to make it relevant.

A reviewer should be an independent source that verifies or disproves the claims of the manufacturer. He works for the readers, not the magazine or its advertisers. Back in the day, reviewers fiercely protected their independence from the advertising side of the publications they wrote for.

It's a sign of our times that independent voices have been chopped down to mere entertainment. I was reading in the paper about Dan Rather's lawsuit against CBS. Rather is a dirty clown compared to real journalists like Edward R. Murrow. Things like this make me ashamed of our culture. I demand more of the people whose job it is to bring us facts.
