Interesting. On the other hand, in my very own case, I think that if 
it's a tiger, then I'm dead anyway: I'm not a warior able to win against 
a tiger with bare hand, and I'm not sure on this but isn't the average 
tiger a better sprinter than the world biggest human champion in this 

It may me think of the quotation, which I red, may be on this list, 
(attributed to the Dalai Lama in the document where I found it): "I 
there's a solution there's no need to worry, and if there is no 
solution, there's no need to worry".
