...let me make it simple for ya:

A leader has benefits only and only if he has SOMETHING TO OFFER to the pack !


Wrong. In virtually every animal society the leader is the one who has whupped the sorry ass of anyone who tries to challenge him.

@Fil Albuquerque,
Btw, I didn't see anything in that elephant video that isn't common to most all species of herd animals.

And I didn't hear the elephants say a single word--just the narrator reading a script which said the same thing over and over again. Say it often enough and it MUST be true, eh? I guess only he can read elephant minds, and see the "wisdom in their eyes."

The video doesn't ever show the elephants doing anything remarkable, they're just walking around with the cameras on. All the laudable traits imputed to them are simply announced by the narrator, without substantiating facts or graphic displays. And of course, quotes from famous people are frequently sprinkled in--almost as if the elephants were the ones saying them.

Kinda odd that not a single one of those quotes said a single thing about elephants, ya know?

@layman,
I believe you to the core when you say you didn't saw anything special in the video...see, we agree that much.
