So there is someone who's job it is to press the button?! Is his name Desmond and is he living in a bunker with a hatch on a mysterious island?

No, Jack took over. We're just going to have to hope he isn't convinced by a certain bald headed man that he doesn't need to push the button.

Oh wait, that's the wrong way round isn't it.

Oh I see! I was a bit confused then and for a second thought that perhaps I don't actually have to get up at 5.55.

Desmond not pushing it caused the plane to crash, when the losties didn't push it the numbers went to hieroglyphics and electromagnetic shit happened, then baldie pushed it and it resettled.

Anyway, I don't think we've got to worry about that here.
