The rat being larger is usually an advantage in an attack - except where the rat cannot escape through a tiny mouse hole!

A rat is a corrupt member of the CCP.

A mouse excuses their corruption out of nationalism.

Q5. one recent term for fule in the English sphere is that you have been "owned" by someone.
It means that they have trumped you or beaten you in some way.
A recent modification to this is an interesting story, you may have seen it and wondered what could it mean. "pwned", this came to be because of a game (I don't know which game). The games creator made a typo, instead of hitting the "o" button, pressed the "p" button, then when someone was beaten, the message "You have been pwned" appeared. This was seen as a very amusing error and is now a meme.

The day I stop learning will be the day I die. Maybe.

These are all very recent, and probably very ephemeral, computer slang things.
