  • I think its because they are smart enough to hide well or dig into the root of another so it makes it hard to get them out LOL.

  • Because when you need them taken out, you have gained the wisdom of why you wish you didn't have them!

  • Because you would be wise to have them taken out before they caused you sever problems. ;)

  • I think it's because they generally come in when you are older, and hopefully wiser?
