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 Are Furious Dumbledore Isn't Openly Gay In The New 'Fantastic Beasts' Movie

In 2007, during an appearance at Carnegie Hall, J.K. Rowling surprised fans by saying that Albus Dumbledore is a gay man.

“I always thought of Dumbledore as gay. Dumbledore fell in love with Grindelwald, and that added to his horror when Grindelwald showed himself to be what he was,” she said.

Some bigots mourned, but who cares about them. Many more rejoiced! Having queer representation in media really important to the LGBTQ community. Too bad there weren’t any explicit references to it in the actual text, but okay.

Ten years later, and fans are a little sick and tired of just “knowing” Dumbledore is gay; they want to see an actual love story, or something. And it’s the perfect opportunity, because his life as a young wizard out on the town is being presented on film in the Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them series. We will literally see Dumbledore chasing Grindelwald around. Something’s bound to happen, right? Nope.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the director of The Crimes of Grindelwald, David Yates, responded to a question of whether or not Dumbledore will be seen as gay by saying, “Not explicitly.”

He continued, “But I think all the fans are aware of that. He had a very intense relationship with Grindelwald when they were young men. They fell in love with each other’s ideas, and ideology and each other.”

Okay.

Fans have pretty much had it with the queer baiting:

Like, they hate it for logical fallacies as well as the hints of discrimination:

But lots of people are defending Yates and the story’s progression. Including J.K. Rowling, who is like, “Don’t @ me.”

Others are saying that the relationship between Grindelwald and Dumbledore might be addressed in the next installment. or maybe the one after that? Who knows, the future is unclear!

But the point should be made that no one has seen proof of Dumbledore’s sexuality in the actual books or movies yet, and they want the receipts.

May both Yates and Rowling discover a magical new world called 2018 extremely soon.

Tomi Lahren Photoshops A Picture Of Colin Kaepernick, And Twitter Isn't Having Any Of It

Tomi Lahren is at it again. On Thursday, the lightweight political commentator, Fox news contributor, and staunch Trump supporter tweeted a doctored photo of Colin Kaepernick. In the image, Kaepernick appears to be kneeling in a WWII landing craft, watching U.S. soldiers storm the beach at Normandy on D-Day. 

Lahren captioned the photo “Citizen of the Year” and quipped, “Food for thought”: 

Lahren may have been hoping to ruffle some feathers on Thanksgiving, but she missed the mark. By depicting Kaepernick kneeling before a military battle to criticize his protests, she overlooked the fact that protesting racial injustice in the U.S. is an act of patriotism. Kaepernick fans took a quick break from arguing with family over dry turkey and room temperature side dishes to have a little fun with Lahren’s ignorance. 

Many Twitter users called out Lahren’s hypocrisy: 

Some tried to explain how military families’ sacrifices gave us free speech:

Others defended Kaepernick’s right to protest… again:

But several people got to the heart of it all with their own “food for though” photos:

And someone illustrated what we were all thinking:

Sit ALL the way down, Ms. Lahren.

This Mom Has An Ingenious Trick For Making Sure Her Daughter Isn't Lying To Her

I’m glad that smartphones weren’t around when I was a teen. I’d probably be like Kaelyn Demmon, 18, whose mom Heather Steinkopf has figured out a brilliant way to keep tabs on her.

Steinkopf told BuzzFeed that she requests selfies only some of the time, so Demmon never knows when she’s going to get a request for one. She also requests specific poses (like thumbs up) so her daughter can’t give her an old photo.

And yes, sometimes it has resulted in Demmon being caught in a lie. “There’ve been times when I’ve said I’m at Stevie’s when I’m at a bonfire or something,” she told BuzzFeed.

I’m just surprised she never went as far as to ask her daughter to hold up a copy of the day’s newspaper or something.

In just a few months, however, Demmon is going to college—and her mother won’t be able to keep tabs on her so easily anymore. “She’s awesome, so I’m not worried about her,” her mom said. If my mom is any guide, I don’t believe it for a second.
