    I just watched a video of a hippo biting a rhino's neck and drowning it in the river. It might've been different if the rhino opened with some kind of charge.

    Like most fights I would say it comes down to who strikes first and if the target is ready for it. Fights usually end within the first three moves. That's because attacking is easy, and defending is hard. Whoever lands the first blow pretty much wins.

    So in other words, to be safe in life you should always be attacking everyone you meet? Thanks Devor! ;)

    Hippo, cause in my house, I am the rhino, and the woman is the hippo, and I never win.

    Welcome to American sociopolitical philosophy!

    I think that the idea of attacking first or attacking everyone you meet could be found in the sociopolitical philosophies of many nations. But aren't we getting a bit off topic here? How did a thread about hippos versus rhinos devolve into sociopolitical philosophies?

    It was just a fairly innocuous non-partisan joke. But you're right, I'll refrain.

    The study of hippos and rhinos requires multi-disciplinary approaches. It is a very difficult field to be sure.

    I agree that to me your post is indeed as you describe it. However, to some it could be
    construed in the opposite direction.
    Not to put too fine a point on it but I was just covering our collective asses so to speak.
