well, I put yes because you never stated that it might be a strip mall you didn't specify if it was an indoor mall. If it was a strip mall like i stated you could leave without doors :)

you said no firearms, you didnt say anything about fire/flammable stuff.
i would delight at roasting the lions in a mixture of motor oil and gasoline.
and putting a huge burning ring around me.
i would then eat some of the lions and pare out thier fvcking skulls for victory punch bowls the next day

I would say hell no.

But actually, if i could pick the mall, then sure.

I live in Edmonton, where we have West Edmonton Mall, & i think it's still the world's largest mall. Or close to that anyway.

It's huge enough the change of a random spawn nearby is quite unlikely.

And there's a lot of water in the mall, so i would just need to get there to the stuff in the water (on top), & i'd be fine.

At the same time though, if i couldn't make it to the water stuff...i'm dead :(

Yes. I've been in a mall late at night. I'd be quite a climber with lions on the prowl, and the million bucks would give me extra motivation.

The mall got a bunch of place you can climb up. At one super mall, it got fake rock face where you can do "mountain climbing". Just climb up there and stay there for 8 hrs. Hell, with all the beding/furnitures I could easily barricake myself in a small room for 8 hrs. And you see all those propane tanks in the hardware stores? A small fire blocking any entrances and I can collect my 1 mil. after 8 hrs. :D

Go into the liquir store, pour booze all over the entry way, and light it on fire.......and hope the entire store doesn't catch fire.

You dont think you have ot worry about the lions attacking you while you go, find the ladders, set it up, and climb up it?

Edit: and random spawn means there is a good chance of a lion being stuck in the ventilation and pissed :)

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.
Ummm, most malls have tile/slippery floors... you think a lion is going to come flying at you? i would imagine it would burn rubber and get no where fast.

Yes, but I'd take out a good health plan / life insurance plan and get in shape before that

and make my peace with God

whoever said that 10 lions in a mall = 75% chance that there will be a lion within 50yards of you is a moron.

how many stores does the average size mall have? How big is an average size mall.

Account for the number of stores, levels, additional walls/floors, and line of sight is a low chance...

But to the people saying use the elevator or escalator.. almost every average mall Ive been to only has one floor...

Most malls have a music store somewhere near the center of the mall. So, easy solution: run into the music store, grab a Celine Dion or Michael Bolton CD, and play it over the intercoms at full blast while I watch the lions writhe in pain. :D

Of course... if I don't find some way to quickly plug my own ears, I don't think I'll last the eight hours. :confused:

Another strategy of mine would be to hide out in the "Yankee Candle" store. The powerful scents from the Housewarmer Jars, votives, and tarts would mask your aroma, and the lions couldn't locate you.
lol i love it !!!!! i am with saulbadguy
