10% Of Blokes Believe They Can Beat A Lion In A Fist Fight
A new survey reveals close to 10% of men actually believe they could beat a living, breathing lion in a fist fight - find out more here.
Ask any man walking on God’s green Earth if they have a mate who severely overestimates their own ability in unarmed combat. They’ll reply by naming a “street-tough” operator before you can even finish the question. Overinflated confidence in this regard is by no means an unexplored phenomenon, especially when it comes to the male species. Although it has just reached all-time highs as a new survey reveals close to 10% of men actually believe they could beat a living, breathing lion in a fist fight.
The YouGov survey conducted in America posed a simple question with 34 different animals alongside humans: if it ever came down to a rumble in the jungle – random match-up, no holds barred, zero weapons involved – who would win? To absolutely no one’s surprise, elephants and rhinoceros’ ranked first with a 74% success rate, following by grizzly bears at 73%, tiger at 70%, hippopotamus’ at 69%, lions at 68%, crocodiles at 67%, alligators at 65% – which is also hilarious given how the crocs and gators are virtually identical killers – then gorillas and polar bears rounding out the top ten with 64% each.
That‘s fucking funny.
