Hello everyone, i am here again, to ask you questions that are debatable and for some senseless and for some made sense. Questions that will refresh our minds from answering problems here in mylot. Now whose side are you in? The ELEPHANT or The Rat What do you think will happen if both of this living things met each other and fight? Who do you think will win? I really do not know who will win. Knowing the elephant is big and the rat is a small one. Size doesn't matter in a fight. The elephant can crush the rat if the elephant can catch it. But the can kill the elephant, in his own little ways. Now what do you think?

I havent a clue. One day when i was watching tv there was a program on that was testing to see if an elephant is scared of a mouse. They did it several times and everytime the elephant went out of his way to avoid the mouse. It sure appeared that the elephant didnt want to go near the mouse.

O yes, i also saw that one on a tv series, i just forget the title of the show, anyway, we also cannot tell that the elephants are really afraid of rats because not all elephants are the same, well i think we still need to wait for others. Have a nice day.

Hi RJ, The rat will surely win the fight. we can never under estimate the rat's size. the rat can make a trick in his own simple way. can i make a scenario? the contest will be --THE FIRST ONE TO CONVINCE THE OTHER TO SIT DOWN. i am telling you, the rat will be the winner. He will simply whisper on the the elephant's ear that he has small p*n*s. if the answer is yes he can remain standing and if it's not true he can have sit down. of course the elephant being so boastful about his size, sits down to prove that he has a big P***s. so the wins! what do you think. Silly me right?!!!

Hahahaha, that was a bit funny, well, if that is the scenario, you are right, and i also do agree with you that, let us not judge the book by it's cover, anyway, we still do not know the opinion of the majority. Hahahahaha, thanks and have a nice day.

Nice, critical thinking, we all know that elephants ear are very big, and the rat can go inside that ear and damage the elephant internally, very nice guess, but i guess, the rat will really have a hard time to crawl on the elephants ears cause the elephant will surely not allow that rat just go there and kick his butt, but you know i was also thinking about the same thing. Have a nice day.

Well the rat is indeed very agile, swift and fast. let alone cunning. The elephant is a slow big creature. Then again i believe the battle would be a very long one. I can picture it like this : the elephant and the rat in a 50 m2 room and the rat is running around the perimiter while the eliphant is making a 60 degree turn in the middle. I think that eventually the elephant might win, when he crushes the rat by mistake, maybe he falls on him , because the rat made him tired, but still the rat = fail. I think one can call this a dilemma. Mind bogglind indeed. :)

You are right about that, this is really a dilemma. We do not really know who will win, they both can loose or win. Addition to that, when we speak of fighting for our lives, i think, both will do anything just to survive. I think we still need to wait, what will the majority say about this topic.

I think, it is not really logical, remember that some elephants are afraid of rats, then what is the reason why they are afraid of it? We do not know. The rat can bite the elephant in my parts without getting caught specially when those two, are living on the wild or the forest. And i think most rat who lives in the forest have their own rabies, i just do not know what to call that. The elephant can also kill a rat, if he is not that afraid of rats, he step on it, and he can even pick it with his nose and throw it. Let us still wait for the majority. have a nice day.

This question bring me to think of "Kung Fu Panda". The small one is more flexible, and the big one is always clumsy. But that's not correct. Every one is different, like there are no exactly right the same two leaves in this world.

Well, you are right about that, but who will be the real winner for you? In your own opinion, if you will be ask who will be the winner and you will choose only one, then who do you think will win? Have a nice day.

If they had weapons, then the elephant would be an easy target for the rat to take out. If they do not have any weapons, then the elephant just has to step on the rat and its game over.

You also have a point there, lol, then i think we should wait for others opinion, as long as, both sides are balanced and majority, still there will be no winner. Let us wait who will be the winner on this fight, thank you so much for sharing, have a nice day.

Uhmmm...I realise the rat would be very quick compared to the elephant but its size does account for something, surely so I am inclined to think that the elephant may struggle to find the little rat but would win in the end. Besides elephants are probably a lot quicker on their large feet than we give them credit for and one big step and there you have one squashed rat! The elephant would definitely win in my humble opinion!

I am also thinking about that, but what if the rat bite the elephant's organ or what if the rat have something that can kill the elephant immediately, well we really do not know, who will win until the majority of this topic will say either of them is the winner. I can also say that elephants will win, but there is also a chance for the rat to kill the elephant. Thank you so much for this very honest opinion, let us wait what other people are thinking. Have a great day.

I suppose the rat will win because it can carry bubonic plague. Of course I am on the side of the elephant, but without some help from people who love elephants the rat will win.
