So here's a question:

If you put 12 naked men and one lion in to an empty room about the size of a gymnasium (got some room to run-about). Would there be at least one man left standing next to a dead lion or would all of the men die and the lion be well fed?

No tools, the men are average sized men of even temperment, all of the men are educated to a "high-school graduate" level.

Discuss.

How big is the lion? How big are the men?

Too many factors to decide.

If they can be motivated to work as a group, the men will win. If they only think of themselves and the danger that the lion presents to them individually, the lion will win.

No, because no group of 12 would work in sync together.

They would, in fact, be brutally murdered.

No lion would randomly kill 12 people, that's a TON of food.

It might kill one if it was pretty hungry, but it'd probably at least a week before it would need to kill all of them.

Quote by thundrstruk891
you never specified the lions mood. if its a pissed off or hungry lion, hell win. if not, nobody dies, because why would you kill a perfectly calm lion?


Because it might not stay perfectly calm. Hence the mood.

The guys are probably screwed.

Lions are rather large and can move quickly if they want to. I'd wager that it'd be rather challenging to kill one with your bare hands.

I'd wager though that if it was an actualy gymnasium, and there were the sort of things that you'd find in a gymnasium in it, the guys might be able to live through it - as long as they didn't start near the lion and probably had clothes on.

lion wins.

Hey y'all!!! Me and my friend were over at her house. I we were wonder what guys think when they see a hot girl at the mall or whatever walk by. (We're both pretty as y'all would say "blonde" sometimes).

I doubt the lion would kill them all at once. So it is possible that one man is still standing if he doesn't appear as a threat to the lion. Although men with bare hands couldn't kill a lion.

I think 12 men could fairly easily corner, bring down and smother a lion. idk though, as thankfully I've never been in this scenario

i think maybe a guy can kill a lion with his bare hands.(12 guys). But think about it. Maybe theyll be smart enough to maybe hurt the animal
#19
I dunno, but I'd put the spread in favour of the lion. Anyone who has ever been on the wrong side of a house cat will probably agree.

Interesting question...
#20
How big are the men in the pants? That is a crucial factor that must be considered.
#22
No lion would be able to eat tweleve men!!! He'd probably just eat one and be satisfied. Eventually 12 humans can kill it while its sleeping.
#23
Fun fact: A lion's hunting instinct will not trigger if it's prey doesn't try to run away. Any man who doesn't try to escape will be safe.
Thus sayeth the Lord.

im betting on the lion. although if the men are trained in some sort of martial art or fighting, i would expect at least 7 men to live.

Best post on the pit. Good for you.
thats pretty epic.
So you're like a slower paced Forrest Gump...
Yup...

depending on how long it took until you came back, eventually the lion would kill everyone, but it would take time

I'm picturing 12 naked men all jumping on a lion, punching it and trying to kill it. It's hilarious thought

Well twelve guys together are bigger than a lion. A big dog pile and the lions out.
