How to make somebody agree

A: “2 + 2 = 5, therefore you should brush your teeth.”

B: “Two plus two doesn't equal five.”

A: “Why you don't want to brush your teeth?”

B: “I do, but not because two plus two equals five, since it doesn't!”

A: “You have to brush your teeth because two plus two equals five!”

B: “I won't!”

A: “You won't brush your teeth?”

B: “I will, but not because 2 + 2 = 5.”

(B brushes her teeth)

A: Hah! You brushed your teeth! So you agree that 2 + 2 = 5!

Inspired by discussions with my boss.
