The elephant was later put down and was discovered to have been in musth, a condition that usually affects male elephants once a year when testosterone levels, aggression and sexual activity increase.

You know what you do if an elephant comes in your car window?

Swim for your life.

Ishkur: 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.

There is a big chicken and egg question in anthropology about which came first: opposable thumbs which necessitated a big brain to do creative things with them, or a big brain which wanted free appendages to work all sorts of mischief. I'm liable to think that that the two evolved together and pushed each other: The more we used one necessitated advancement in the other.

But tool use isn't that special. Lots of animals use tools. Just look at what crows can do with them. Otters, beavers, primates, octopus, dolphins... they all use tools in one form or another. But none of them can throw. I can't stress enough how much of a ecological game changer that is. We kill at a distance! Think about that.

We're the only animal that does that.

No, we already had opposable digits because of our primate ancestry before we ever came down from the trees and started farking with tools.

Our big brains were probably the result of many different evolutionary pressures and population bottlenecks over time, one after another. Climate changes may have led to us coming down from the trees, which put us in danger from predators (like big cats) that we hadn't needed to worry about before, which led to us developing a bipedal stance to keep a better eye out for predators (which also freed our forelimbs up for eventual tool use) as well as more complex communication. Our ever increasing mental capabilities were only further enhanced by extinctions and habitat pressures resulting in population bottlenecks where only the most capable proto humans survived.

Sort of a Rube Goldberg machine of death and mating resulting in an animal which could eventually invent Gucci jeans.

Talk about wild mood swings. I was going to  yell at them for taking vertical video. Then they rectify that. Then suddenly the whole screen is just black and various unfocused interior of car. Then they got a good shot again. Suddenly everything gets shaky and I get pissed until I realized they were moving the car to get a better shot. Or maybe to get ready to drive away.

Oh...never mind driving up to the elephant, what about driving away when confronted?
