Did you take the money that the tooth fairy left you, to bribe someone to solve an LTPF puzzle for you?

Did the tooth fairy help you after the puzzle was posted? Or before?

Did you believe in the tooth fairy at any point in your life? If so, did you believe in the tooth fairy during your early years?

Did the idea of the tooth fairy lead you to ask questions that you would not otherwise have thought of?

Hmmm.. : ) The tooth fairy: H? A? M? or rather female? Someone you personally know?

I am trying to make a distinction here between - e.g. my friend Joe and the Associated Press

HINT or BLOOPER
"Seen in a picture?" should be YES if by "picture" Ciaobella meant 'motion picture'.

So The Rock helped you solve an LTPF puzzle, eh? Does the help he gave specifically have to do with that movie? or is it just him?

Does "Can you smell what The Rock is cooking?" have any relevance? Some characteristic of him? Something regarding his time as a wrestler?

So, his physical appearance? his muscleyness? his ethnic background? his personality? his wealth? his sense of humor? the fact that people think he looks like Vin Diesel? his appearances in other movies?

Ethnic background -- Samoan? Canadian?

What about his ethnic background helped -- knowing specifically his ethnic background? or is this where we make the lateral leap and it's some knowledge about the ethnic background (or location?) itself, rather than knowledge specifically about The Rock's ethnic background that helped you?

Did you have this piece of information because of another lateral puzzle? because you had looked up The Rock at some point? and gotten interested in Samoa? so did some research on it? because you are one of a rare breed of Scandinavian Samoans :-) ?

Did you find out this piece of knowledge through TV? movies? newspapers/magazines? the internet? Relevant?

Great round of questions! What was is that I found out about Samoa that helped me solve the LTPF puzzle?

Oh, and yes, I consider wikipedia research, especially in this context... not *scientific* research or anything, and should generally be taken with a grain of salt, but definitely a good place to find an intro to a lot of topics.

HINT: The puzzle that I solved had nothing to do with Samoa, and yet a piece of information I had about Samoa was helpful.

********SPOILER********

A while ago, The Tooth Fairy, a comedy starring The Rock, was on TV. While I was watching it, I started wondering about The Rock's ethnic background, so I looked him up on wikipedia. Out of curiosity, I also read the article about Samoa, which (at least in the German version) talks about their switch from right hand to left hand traffic some years ago.

Shortly after, Solo1 posted a puzzle "Timing is everything", and reading through the questions and answers, something rang a bell with me and I remembered the Samoa article. So I made a half-wide guess, and it turned out I was right!

Thanks, dear Tooth Fairy, for helping me!
And thanks for playing, especially to Kalira who was so patient with this one, and to Sundowner who finished it off.
