Anal cancer is cancer of the anus.
So oft in theologic wars,
The disputants, I ween,
Rail on in utter ignorance
Of what each other mean,
And prate about an Elephant
Not one of them has seen!
More often than not people will talk and dispute subjects about which they have absolutely no knowledge.
Orwell shoots the elephant when it is in heat because he is destroying property and also took someones life. Orwell didnt really want to kill it but the people following him made him feel pushed forward to do it.
The elephant death scene
In Orwell's "Shooting an Elephant" (1936) he displays the imperial administration's ambivalence concerning his action of destroying an elephant.
On the one hand, it was his legal responsibility because the elephant had murdered a local "Coolie." On the other hand, killing the elephant is tantamount to destroying the 'means of production,' which from a capitalist, or utilitarian, point of view is a great crime.
Orwell exposes the late-Victorian uncertainty over their true purpose as rulers in Burma. Are they upholding a moral truth, embedded in the colonial state, or simply maintaining the utility of their dominion?
This opposition between radical morality and utilitarian justification can be related to the contemporary collapse of metaphysical truth within postmodern linguistic philosophy. Orwell was concerned with both the social and political impacts of Victorian colonialism, in addition to his inquiries into the problem of language: i.e. "Politics and the English Language" (1946). The realm of absolute truth is replaced with the utility of language for communication. For examples, consider Wittgenstein and Derrida.
The difference between hunting deer and hunting elephants is overall
1) elephants are poached more and there are fewer of them
2) elephants are a keystone species and thus are more important to their own ecosystem then deer; meaning that if their population decreases it will create a greater impact than a decrease in deer population.
There are also other reason like for instance they are two different species, but basically that's it.

Well a huge guy definitely needs a huge amount of food,
Here is a quote from Mariusz' of his diet,
Breakfast is 10 eggs and 2-3 pounds of bacon. Between meals, I eat lots of candy. I need it for energy. Lunch, at 1 or 2 p.m., is a double meal of a Polish pork chop, sauerkraut and potatoes. An hour later, I work out, then take lots of supplements: magnesium, creatine, amino acids, all that stuff, and more chocolate. Dinner is whatever meat I can get: steaks, pork chops, bacon, plus more sauerkraut and potatoes. After I work out I have a protein shake and more chocolate.
He eats everything and anything he wants, I guess you have to if you are 273 lbs and one of the worlds' strongest men.
In 1901 Connie Mack and his Philadelphia Athletics became one of the original founders of the American League. In 1902 New York Giants Manager John McGraw dismissed the A's with contempt, by calling them "The White Elephants." He meant to imply that Mack shouldn't be allowed to spend money without supervision. Well, Connie Mack took up the gauntlet and defiantly adopted the White Elephant as the team insignia. That year, 1902, the A's won the American League pennant -- much to the unvoiced chagrin of John McGraw. This is from the A's history page.... To be simple... It's the Oakland Athletics' oldest logo.
The lion attacks the elephant first by jumping on the back, making the elephant angry and disturbed. The lion starts biting the elephant on the back before the elephant can shake it off. When the tiger starts attacking the elephant, the elephant starts crushing with its foot, which makes the tiger run off. The tiger bites the elephant's foot and the elephant kicks it with full power, leading the tiger to its death. The elephant violently shakes the lion off its back, killing the lion. Elephant is winner.
The origin of the Alabama Crimson Tide's elephant mascot dates back to the 1930s. A sports reporter was writing about the game between Alabama and Ole Miss that was played on October 8. The journalist wrote how a fan yelled "Here come the elephants" when he heard the Crimson Tide's first team coming on the field. Because of this the elephant became the mascot for the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Elephants have very thick skin, so feeling the pulse through the skin isn't an option. However, a simple ultrasound can detect the blood flowing in an artery and the heart rate (pulse) can be checked that way.
No, ruminants are those animals like cows which regurgitate their food and chew it, then swallow it again for further digestion. Elephants don't do this, their food passes straight through the alimentary canal as ours does.

Yes. Lions, like all vertebrates, have bilateral symmetry. This means they have symmetry across one plane (known as the sagittal plane, and directly down the centre of their body), which means one side of their body approximately mirrors the other side.
About 80 percent of single babies (that is, babies who aren't one half of a set of a twins) born to women in the U.S. between 1995 to 1997 weighed between 6 pounds and 9.25 pounds. The median birthweight for a U.S. baby carried to term was 7 pounds, 11 ounces during that time span.
The elephant brain is denser than the human's, and the temporal lobes, associated to memory, are more developed than in humans. Elephant's lobes also have more foldings, so that they can store more information. That's why elephants have excellent memory.
