HOUSTON'S MYSTERY BUTTON

It's said that it's impossible for anyone to resist a red mystery button, but if you think you can there is one located at 515 Preston St in Houston, Texas.  It's right there on the Preston Bridge all red, round, and unassuming... just waiting.  Should I push it?  Should I not?  What will happen?

Not to be too spoilery, but the button is there for a reason... it's art and you are more than welcome to touch it!  What does it do?  You'll have to scroll down and find out.

If you work up the courage to press the button, it causes a giant bubble to burp in the river below.  As a matter of fact, the art piece is called "The Big Bubble."  It was constructed in 1998 as a curiosity, but also as a offbeat way to aerate the waterway.
