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."

but did you account for the fact that over the five years humans making trash to feed the rats would breed and change their numbers? i mean folks who lost a partner in the snap would move on, single folks would move on... the world would have moved forward in 5 years.

The Film Theorists if you’re reading this, I have to tell you I think I found a way to fix the Spider-Man: Homecoming year problem In Homecoming, it says it takes place 8 years after the first Avengers, meaning it took place in 2020. But that can’t happen because he bit the dust in 2018 and doesn’t come back until 2023. But there is one way it can work, there’s a different universe. In Endgame, the Ancient One is explaining to Bruce Banner what would happen if one of the stones were to disappear from her time. If we were to apply this same logic to living beings, then that could actually explain why Spider-Man is alive in 2020. When Iron Man snapped Thanos and his army out of existence, he made a new timeline/universe, one where their Thanos just disappears one day and is no longer a threat and where none of the Avengers bite the dust. But for now remember, that’s just a theory, A COMMENT THEORY

I don’t remember it being just 1 single button for the rat to click. During the movie the rat went over a control board I’m pretty sure clicking multiple buttons. I think strange’s prediction for the 1/140000000 was the rat hitting the correct sequence of buttons not just a single button, this makes more sense if Matt is saying that 99 percent of the outcomes Scott gets free. I don’t think that’s the case tho, the 1/14000000 is that rat hitting the correct order of buttons NOT JUST ONE

I dont even remember seeing that rat ROFL. For 5 years the rat population can increase a lot ,give them like 20% increase or more from the 50%. Doctor Strange saw the rat and said YEAH here we go i can give the time stone to Thanos now.

It's no surprise San Francisco is the rat capital of America, San Francisco is also the capital of hobos that shit in the street. It's disgusting, San Francisco use to be beautiful but now it's a liberal progressive Utopia aka a shithole. I honestly wouldn't feel bad if the entire state of California fell into the ocean, taking with it nasty Nancy pelosi, and Mrs chicom spy Diane feinstein.

You know you left out how quickly the rats can recover.

Yes half the rats were turned to dust by the snap, but they are fast reproducers. Rats can reach sexual maturity at 5 weeks, a single female rat in decent health can have 12 babies every 3 or 4 weeks so in those 5 years a female rat can make 1,020 more rats and that is just from ONE female rat that is not including the other female rats that she is producing that are reproducing themselves after they reach age 5 weeks.
And with half of the human exterminators gone rats would be doing very well. So those numbers would actually be higher.

Me explain so there’s a chance that the rat that stepped on the button could’ve never been born it could’ve been snapped out of reality it could’ve been eaten by a hawk it could’ve been stepped on someone it could’ve been shot it could’ve been eaten by a wild fox that just decided to come in the city for some reason it could’ve been eaten by someone’s dog could’ve been poisoned it could’ve been exterminated it could’ve been never even worn it could’ve been and over by a car he could’ve been eaten by a hobo on the street that’s desperate

Did you calculate how the rat got inside the van? The chances that a rat would do that and how many of those rats weigh enough to apply the force needed to get through into van and step on the button.
But don't also don't forget that within the five years, somebody sometime took that van from the parking garage and put it into a storage without taking anything or using the van for any other purposes.
Then how long can a van battery last without being started. If the button has access to the battery power that means it must being using it or was it in sleep mode? That button did a lot for a machine that took 3 humans to yeah the rat was an act of OAA.

This is the dumbest video I’ve ever seen from you.

I understand being upset with the narrative framework resting on this natural occurrence rather than the actions of one of our many heroes but it was obviously a likely possibility. They gave it five years. You didn’t even calculate the reproduction rate which would lead to a resurgence in the rat population.

I'm not really mad but- -

There’s something I noticed—I don’t know if it matters, but rats don’t live very long.
As someone who’s actually had pet rats, rats only live two to three years, three being the maximum. So would the older rats die out and the younger rats have to learn their territory? Would that influence if they found the van, because the younger rats don’t know their territory as well as the older ones, who have passed?
I honestly have no clue, I’m just throwing things out there.

The film theorist claimed Antman would be only trapped forever in 4 out of 14,000,605 futures. But I think it even looks very good for Antman in these cases. If I got the video right it just calculated his probability of being freed by a rat *within five years*. There is again a good high are that he will be freed in the sixth year. In fact, the bigger danger would be to be released early on, like after just some minutes, and then not realizing about the different time flow.

While statistically possible for the rat to walk over the button, there are several other factors that make the premise impossible, imo:
1) The sequence to release Ant-Man is set up to just need one button to be pressed
2) The rat doesn't mess everything up by hitting other keys before hitting the correct one
3) The rat does hit other keys but they have no effect
4) Rats haven't chewed through the cables in the 5 year interim
All of the above, while varying degrees of unlikely, I am willing to suspend my disbelief and accept. However, there is one point I refuse to accept:
5) The device still has power after 5 years of inactivity!
If the device is connected to the van's battery, it would've been running until it was found and either drained completely or been turned off after being moved to the storage garage. If it had a separate external power source, it would've drained completely or been disconnected to move it. Even if the power source could survive 5 years of constant draining, and nobody disconnected it or damaged the cables, the machine itself would have begun to fall apart with no maintenance. The entire premise of the device being functional after 5 years is too unrealistic for me to suspend my disbelief. I challenge you, MatPat, to prove me wrong and see if there is a way that the device could still be functional at the time the rat walked over the appropriate button.
