Tooth Fairy

Imagine an 8 year old genius tracked how much money the tooth fairy gave them and their friends by sequence of tooth loss, tooth type, quality of tooth etc. And they take all this data and create a guide to predicting what the tooth fairy will pay. Even if they’re accurate they’re vastly incorrect because when an actual, real variable, changes the system falls apart.

It doesn’t matter if the child goes on CNN and is paid to endorse tooth paste commercials, they still are clueless of reality. Any answer they give you to why the tooth fairy prefers teeth brushed with mint flavoured toothpaste to strawberry is BS. Even if they believe it whole heartedly.

(See why this isn’t always true here).
