Many a lunch table argument has been had about a battle between unlikely foes. Who would win: a gorilla or a grizzly bear? A great white shark or a crocodile? Opponents throw their support behind one animal or another and vigorously debate the matchup—“a grizzly bear might be bigger, but a gorilla has opposable thumbs and superior intelligence!” As thrilling and engaging as these debates may be, participants recognize their theoretical nature. Part of the fun is that the question “who would win?” is often unanswerable. The hypothetical combatants simply do not encounter one another in the wild, leaving the matter perpetually open to debate.
