I don't think you guys realize how ferocious, lightning fast and vicious full-blown female lions are capable of.

10 of them set loose in a mall... You're dead even if you have firearm. You probably can't aim to shoot it right when it starts to rush towards you at 50mph.

:laugh: 10/10

Hell yeah I'd do it, its like Battlefield 2 without the bugs, but with lions.

1. Cover self in nasty perfume/cologne.
2. Make awesome explosives out of car batteries and other assorted sh!t I'd be able to find at Sears. Fvcked up CRT + lots of electricity = satisfying KABOOM.
3. Put face paint on, for the sake of it.
4. ? Possibly whack off to porn on the PCs in Sears.
5. Profit. $1,000,000 to be exact.

1. This assumes you're gonna get to the perfume place safely
2. And just what would explosives do? They're not even firearms. You're gonna detonate just perfectly the moment lions get to you while you stay uninjured from the blast?
3. Lions can take care of the face paint, with your own blod.
4. They'll be eating off your penis in no time.
6. Profit for the lions!

I'd do it. First off, the lions aren't instantly going to start stalking you...chances are they'll be disoriented and won't even think about food for a while. Then, there are plenty of places in a mall that are easy for humans to get to, but not lions...just climb a sculpture or something with a baseball bat to keep them away.

"capable of" != "always that way 100% of the time"

What if lions are already adjusted to their surroundings and you're their prime target?

I'd be curious where the Lion Training Mall Center was located..

Hah, a Dremel in one hand and a lawn trimmer in the other, both from Sears, with a 50 ft. extension cord on both FTW!:thumbsup:
Meh, I think the lions would be more interested in the Chick-a-Fil and Empire Szechaun leftovers than me.:laugh:

yes, if it was a normal mall and I got a baseball bat then I'd do it every night for a week.

Hell no. The central areas of malls are usually large open areas, and the chance of them all spawning into small rooms or ducts is very small.

I wonder if the effort you put into that 8 hours to surive will equate to someone working hard for say 10 years to become a millionaire?

Everybody saying that nobody could fend off a lion with a chainsaw or whatever should read "Death In The Long Grass". In one of the stories, and they're all true, the guy kills a lion with a broken spear that's like 2 feet long. If the lions can randomly spawn *anywhere* there's a good chance a few of them will spawn halfway through walls or other structural members, instantly killing them.

Well, the Masai have been killing lions for years and years as a rite of passage, so obviously it's possible.

Whether us soft, weak Westerners could do it is another matter.:)

With just that info no way. If I knew the exact layout of the mall, maybe. Depends if there was a safe spot I could find. If not no way.

Hell ya I would. There has to be a food court, just go grab one of the chairs and be a lion tamer for 8 hours.

Stop it in between floors, so long as the lions weren't already chasing you or it was moving before it gets on, you can stop it and they wont have access to you at say on the 1.5th floor.

Edit- As far as the question goes, I would not do it even though it sounds like a fun adventure. Like someone said, it would be a fun game, but in reality I would not risk my life on it.

i wonder if you just stood still the entire 8 hours, if they would even bother you? the mostly hunt by sight, anyway. if you didn't move, you might not be too interesting.
