    What happens when you lose your teeth? I think we need a parabola.

  2. I thought so, too… but then I got it. ;)

    As you age, you move along the x-axis until you get to the end of the curve. At that point, you begin to regress back up the curve.

    As you start to lose your teeth, you’re also more likely to start needing diapers again.

    What about when infants dont have teeth ?? Wouldn’t a steep bump at small x be more accurate ??

  5. Laminar says:

    @Siddharth

    Infant: No teeth, lots of diapers.

    What’s not to understand?

  6. Tim says:

    what about during like the loss of baby teeth stage lol. How does that fit into the graph? there would have to be 2 instantaneous cases for teeth… maybe a flipping of dependent variables is in order?

  7. Addison says:

    This is saying as we get more teeth we use less diapers? Shouldn’t it be a little different considering we start with no teeth and use diapers, then we top out with all of our teeth and no diapers, and finish with less teeth and we go back to diapers.

  8. Andrew says:

    That’s pretty good. Prettayyyyy prettayyyyy prettayyyyy pretty good.

  9. Ari says:

    No no no. You people got it all wrong. Of course, we finish with less teeth and more diapers, but this isn’t a timeline, so like what Travis said, you go back left and up the curve as time goes on.

    If it was a parabola, then it would mean we never lost teeth and are in fact, growing more!

    Should have been a PARABOLA :)

    How many people have helped a relative out who has just suffered a stroke or alzheimer’s?

    There is a reason supermarkets sell diapers for adults.

    It is simple.
    Baby with no teeth – Lots of diapers.
    Adult with all teeth – very few diapers.
    Elderly with few teeth – Lots of diapers.

    If it was age to diapers it would be a parabola…

    sry, i wanted to mean old age and the argument for the parabola and got it all mixed up… u are right as always.
