Popular Science reports that at least one expert believes that in a million years, humans may be able to grow endless sets of teeth beyond baby teeth and adult teeth.
3 Questions That Arise From This Story
1. Is the tooth fairy industry really prepared for this? A million years may seem like a long time, but just like social security, we worry that the tooth fairy program will not be able to continue to provide for future generations. Especially future kids of hockey moms, who are more likely than other kids to lose a tooth to a hockey puck.
2. You got anything more current to predict, Popular Science? We’re happy to hear that in this anti-bullying era, science is popular, but you might be even more popular if you predict something more current, like what the Kardashians will fight about on tonight’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
3. Is it fair to say that scientists can predict anything will happen in a million years without having to worry about being called out on the accuracy of their theories? We’d ask Professor Ice from a million years ago, but he has probably melted.
