> When kids see flashing pictures on cereal boxes we don't expect them to just ask for the product, but to say, "I want it"

It doesn't need to have flashing pictures to make kids say, "I want it". Kids will say "I want it" if it so much as combines three bright colors or has an anthropomorphic animal. Heck, lots of kids will say "I want it" just because it exists.

Numeric stability is probably not all that important when you're guessing.
