Africa or not, the common sense/intelligence required to not stand in the way of something 25 times your size coming at you at roughly 75mph needs to prevail, and if it doesnt, chances are you would have probably been killed walking off a cliff or tying a brick to your feet and jumping in a lake wanting to go fishing or something...
