Can you imagine the power of a position where you could literally press a button and nuke things out of existence? That is a horrifying level of power.  There have been tons of social experiments about pushing a button…  Just having the thing there in front of you, I mean, it’s practically begging to be pushed.  Reddit recently did one and you can read about it here:  http://www.vox.com/2015/4/10/8383165/reddit-button-explained

It’s pretty fascinating stuff.  The moral of the story, don’t put truly horrible things at the end of a button push.  It WILL get pushed.

That said, go push the buttons for liking Peppermint Helmet on Facebook and voting at Topwebcomics.  Or maybe the Patreon button because it’s so big and orange!  Just check the sidebar.
