Film Theory: The Rat That Beat Thanos! (Marvel Endgame)

    To everyone asking whether I calculated the rats repopulating, I did and just cut it before the final draft because it got too pedantic and lost in it's own numbers. Also, we wind back up at 50 rats anyway. Here's what got cut in case you were curious:

    "That means that at the beginning of five years, we're dealing with 50-ish rats in Scott Lang's area, which would replenish to their population carrying capacity in the course of just a few generations. Given that rat food supplies might be lower now that there are only half the people on the world, let's assume that they don’t get back to the full 100 rat population in Scott's immediate area, but that they make a good 50% surge back up to 75 rats roving all over Scott. Realistically it's almost impossible to know for our specific area exactly how many rats would be here, but we're making our best assumption right now and I'm trying to at least give Scott a fighting chance.

    So over the course of the six months after the Great Snap, rats would have pretty much bounced back, given that a new generation of rat babies is ready to go every six weeks. To get our final number, we’ll assume that an average-sized rat community would have at most around 50 rats out searching for food at any given time, since about a third of them are statistically in the nest at a given time."

      Let me help you out, first assumption being that Ant Man matters. The joke is he doesn't. Therefore, his entrance into Endgame was equally a stupid joke. Thus, the idea that him doing anything that matters is a ridiculously stupid joke. The further you dig into the meaning of this being something that would never happen, like a rat-infested shitty storage yard allowing a single rat to crawl on anything while they're more worried about staying alive after the first half of the population disappeared thus causing countless further lives to be lost depending on what they were or weren't doing at the time of the snap. Hmm, kind of like the real Ant Man not pulling retard Randy out of the teeny-verse. To put it in perspective, you're comparing a common daily occurrence to there existing a being that could and would wield all 6 infinity stones to demolish half or all known or unknown life in the universe. I'm guessing it was a slow fucking day at the office we have to thank for this video's premise.

        You forgot to incorporate rat reproduction rates over the course of that five years which would increase the probability of touching that dial.

                                  Well also need to count that it may not be half of every species exactly snapped and that rats BREED quickly. Since it was 5years later the rat population would of easily recovered by then.

                                    Way too many unknown factors to try to use stats on this one. You know not every video has to include this type of unnecessary and incorrect reasoning.

                                            I'm not too concerned about this myself. But you can now turn this on it's head. Since it's that likely that it will happen. It's less likely that it would happen at that exact moment. And that moment is relevant as it seem to be right before they catch up to Hawkeye/Rogue.
                                            But all of this is mostly irrelevant. It's like disproving evolution based on the math... but we aren't looking at the possibilities. We are looking back at what happened.
                                            If you throw a single dice 6 times in a row, you get a number sequence that has less than a 0,0000215% chance of happening, but a 100% chance of having happened.

                                                                                    I just want to say that Dr Strange predicts all of the futures and they only win in 1 out of 14 million or whatever, so this is that 1 in 14 million chance where Antman gets released by a rat. Therefore meaning they just stumbled into that one possibility through random chance.

It basically means that Dr Strange's big move was hoping the rat would step on a button and thus taking the agency from the Avengers. If the only thing they were lacking was a chance at Scott coming back then it should have been something set in motion by Dr Strange and not just a fingers crossed this works.
