There is one other set of conditions whereby elephants will rear on

eaten. These elephants also get incredibly drunk too. Ken

imagine the amount of alcohol required to get something with the body mass of
an elephant drunk...
Doesn't it also depend on how much alcohol dehydrongenase you have ?
(and I'd like to take this opportunity to quash the ridiculous and
unwarranted suggestion that we of Celtic ancestry have any more than our
fair share of this. Cheers....)
