Mama why is there autoplaying video under my bed

Shhh my little one. Because we all made a terrible mistake and the bad things came.

Don't make a sound or it will eat you.

Sleep well.

Mama mama are you really my mama or are you just a recommendation profile generated by an algorithm.

Mama why do your eyes glitter so

Mama why are your teeth so bright and sharp

Mama why does the wind howl like a hungry wolf

Shh my little one. I am statistically virtually indistinguishable for most purposes from your real mama. And I am much, *much* cheaper.

In the end, isn't our marginal utility vs cost function all that really matters?

And it is the end. For you.

Mama no!

Sweet dreams
