    A very clever man who knows all about navel fluff speaks up.

    But Why is It Always Blue?

    It has been observed that belly-button fluff tends to be of a blueish tint.

    Sometimes it looks a little grey, sometimes purple, but generally it's a pale blue
    colour.

    Most clothing has elements of blue or white. The dyes in black clothing,
    for example, are often not actually black but a very dark blue.

    So there.

    And the next time you see a picture of Kasparov you can think to yourself.

    "The fluff in his belly button is blue just like mine."
