Kid Proves The Tooth Fairy Isn't Real With Some Very Clever Detective Work

Do you remember when you figured out the Tooth Fairy wasn’t real? I’m sorry if it just happened when you read that opening sentence. It’s true, the Tooth Fairy isn’t real. It’s just a fun way for adults to buy children’s teeth. Being a parent is hard, you gotta get your kicks where you can.

Twitter user @RogueDadMD announced to his followers that his 9-year-old son had ruined his fun by figuring out the lie through some incredible deductive reasoning:

This kid is a little Sherlock Holmes, but for dentistry.

Some people wanted to know why they didn’t cover their lie with more lies, but they cracked under pressure:

And a few people had questions about how the kid got away with this tooth hiding:

There’s other tests ahead for our detective. For example, can he keep a secret?

Naturally, the kid has already made some mental leaps with this discovery:

Whoa, this is getting deep. And an interesting study into “ruining stuff” traditions:

There were a few people who disagreed with the kid’s scientific methods. They didn’t go far enough:

Then someone pointed out this is exactly what scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson encouraged his kid to do to uncover the mystery of the Tooth Fairy—test your subjects.

A deduction worthy of a world-renowned scientist. But you forgot one thing kid.

Now that you know there’s no Tooth Fairy, you don’t get the $ $ $ .

A real genius would have kept milking his parents for cash until all their baby teeth were good and gone.

People Used This Clever Code Word To Order Marijuana At Burger King

I love marijuana. I’m not going to lie about it. One of my favorite things in the world at the end of a productive month where I felt like I got a lot accomplished is taking an evening to myself after working out extra hard that day, queuing up two movies I’ve really wanted to see, getting a bunch of munchies together, toking up, and just eating and watching TV.

Now I have a decent amount of self-control most times, but when I’m high, it’s like a foodapocalypse. I will eat anything and everything in sight. It’s probably the number one reason why I blaze so infrequently.

But when I do, the food I get is extra junky, there’s something about fast food and pot that go so well together.

Something these Burger King employees knew all too well and used their fast food jobs as the perfect cover up for selling weed.

Seacoast Online reported that two workers at the Epping Burger King, Meagan Dearborn and Garrett Norris would distribute marijuana through the drive-through. People would drive up and ask if “Nasty Boy” was working, which was Garrett’s awesome nickname.

If “Nasty Boy” was indeed, working, people would place an order for “extra crispy” french fries and get a separate coffee cup with weed in it with their order.

Norris was arrested and charged with sale of a controlled drug and possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute. Assistant shift manager Dearborn was also arrested after being charged with conspiracy to distribute drugs and illegal possession of alcohol (she’s 19).

They were both released on $ 2,500 bail and have arraignments scheduled on February 22nd.

Hopefully they get a cool ass judge who recognized clever business tactics when he sees them. Oh, and it’s not like they were selling heroin, it’s not like anyone’s ever overdosed on pot. Besides, how else are you going to enjoy BK’s gross food? (h/t seacoast online)

This Clever 6-Year-Old Ordered $200 Worth Of Christmas Presents While Her Mom Slept

Thanks to all the glories of modern technology, we can order holiday gifts with the touch of a button. The simplicity is beautiful — all the phone needs to bring you holiday joy is a fingerprint. Security and efficiency; what more could you want?

As it turns out, even a touch ID can’t protect you from the conniving mind of a 6-year-old. 

6-year-old Ashlyn Howell from Little Rock, Arkansas surprised her parents this Christmas — by racking up a huge Amazon bill on their account. 

Ashlyn’s mother, Bethany Howell, knew trouble was afoot when she received 13 confirmation notices from Amazon about recent Pokémon-themed purchases. At first, she and her husband believed their account had been hacked, but their daughter made sure to clear things up for them: while Bethany slept on the couch, Ashlyn gently took her mother’s thumb and used it to unlock the Amazon app on her phone. The 6-year-old preceded to order $ 250 worth of Pokemon paraphernalia. 

This seems particularly enterprising for a young child — perhaps she’d ordered it by mistake? “No, Mommy, I was shopping,” Ashlyn confirmed.

Ashlyn’s little shopping spree is indicative of a larger problem.

A 6-year-old’s ability to break into her mother’s account emphasizes just how simple it is for people to hack these online retailer apps. 

Luckily, the Federal Trade Commission is trying to crack down on companies like Google, Apple, and Amazon to put in place a more secure system to avoid these kinds of hacks. In the meantime, the commission suggests wearing gloves while you nap. 

…You never know when an enterprising toddler will try to steal from you. 

So, what happened to all the Pokémon gear?

The Howells were only able to return four of the items (and returning too many items will get you banned from Amazon, FYI) so it looks like those toys aren’t going anywhere. Ashlyn’s mother, however, informed the future hacker that Santa would not be delivering all those presents this year. (h/t KENS5)
