Dinki: The ones that should have been put down were the idiots in the car that thought it was OK to drive right up to an elephant.
bongmiester: and why did they not drive away? well it's said their brains shrunk 10 sizes that day
sheep snorter: Humans are only on top of the food chain because of their bang-bang sticks.
Bathia_Mapes: Reminds me of the T-Rex vs car scene in Jurassic Park, but in this case you don't have to worry about the elephant eating you.
skinink: For heaven's sake, edit that farking shiatty video or hold that phone steady and on the shot. Like watching a video on that shiatty hip hop site that shows all the violent videos.And as for the elephant: "Clever girl."
August11: So we're on this planet full of more wide expanse than the mind can comprehend. And a little car visits the back yard of an aggressive pachyderm? I am starting to think that the human species' primary goal was to evolve to a point where it might record its own stupidity.
mooseyfate: And the elephant has to die. Humans farking suck.
JohnnyC: We've only had "bang-bang" sticks of any kind for roughly 800 years and they really weren't any good until about 400-500 years ago. We (the human species) have been rocking the top of the food chain for a lot longer than that. The real weapon that put us there is our big ass brains
Toriko: You guys are talking like the person filming is a master cinematographer who knew what was going to happen, how to frame a shot, had a steadycam, and wasn't in a moving vehicle on a dirt road while something frightening was happening.Reality check, its just some person with a cell phone who happened to be filming this. They don't really deserved to be punched because their crappy camera filming under crappy circumstances makes a crappy video.

We (the human species) have been rocking the top of the food chain for a lot longer than that. The real weapon that put us there is our big ass brainsActually, it probably started when we figured out how to throw a rock.Man is the only animal that can throw things really far and accurate. That is a crazy ridiculous advantage. We kill at a distance. Evolutionarily speaking, having a monopoly of that that ability is fricken' god mode.After we learned how to throw pointy things at animals, we stopped fearing them.
SuperNinjaToad: This is why you want to bring a minimum of at least an AR-15 when you go to the African safari so when animals go on a rampage you stand a chance from a distance.
Lsherm: Tools. The minute we figured out we could carry a pointy stick with our opposable thumbs and then stick them into something to kill it, we were gold. Throwing things probably happened concurrently, surely someone noticed if you threw a rock at someone it hurt.
Ishkur: We're the only animal that does that.
SearchN: Apparently they forgot to bring the greatest protection from Elephants...[static.tvtropes.org image 350x403]
