..sealed up?

As seen,,
I don't know about Alfred Hitchcock, but it is entirely possible not to have been born with a belly button. The umbilical cord is attached to the fetus internally, not externally. The abdominal wall then forms around the umbilicus.

More
However, if the abdominal wall fails to close around the umbilical cord, it is entirely possible to be born without a belly button. I was born with a hole in my abdomen and my external organs on the outside of my body. The surgeons put the organs back inside and stitched me up. I assure you, I have no belly button and never have!

A little protein is good when drinking alcohol. It's the reason Pubs sell hard boiled eggs.

I thought it was true that you eat 3 to 8 spiders a year,

now I found out that it's actually false.

Snopes eating spiders.

Claim: The average person swallows eight spiders per year.

From Snopes..
Origins: It's hard enough to avoid those horrible wriggly things while we're awake, and now we have to worry that they're crawling into our mouths while we sleep? Little Miss Muffett was a piker.

Fear not. This "statistic" average the average person swallowing eight spiders per year was not only made up out of whole cloth, it was invented as an example of the absurd things people will believe simply because they come across them on the Internet.

Note....The True or False -#16. Most of us have eaten a spider in our sleep.
Key word or letter......'a' spider. No indication of 3 to 8.
