What if a man fought a mature gorilla? It’s a question that people on social media keep asking, and it pisses me off how wrong they get it.

How many times do I have to explain this to you? A silverback gorilla weighs up to 500 pounds. It can lift ten times its body weight. It has a stronger bite than a great white shark. I’ve studied over 25,000 online gorilla videos, and I will educate a fool!
