You got your genes from your ancestors, and although most animals never
manage to get their genes into the next generation without exception every
single one of your ancestors did; you come from a long, very long, line of
winners. There may have been animals that found it pleasant to get hit hard
in the head, there probably were, but none of them were your ancestors
because none of them were winners.
