Under no circumstances are any personnel to even consider proposing a method to facilitate button-pushing.
"I propose sending Able in to see what will happen when it is pushed. He is expendable afterall. And even if it does manage to destroy him… Oh wait, I forgot about the team he leads. Please ignore all of this."
