Dude teases a lion and quickly learns that is a terrible idea

It’s maybe not a good project to tease events that are perfectly capable of chewing you.

A man spotted an Asiatic lion in the Gir Forest National Park in India and got a little too wrapped up in watching the emperor of the jungle. In the excerpt, released in September of 2016, “the mens” drives time a few feet away from a lion sauntering alongside the road. He’s filming the whole happen, with his window down , no less.

After taunting the lion with his automobile for a little bit, the lion stops, stares at the man and lets out the tiniest, yet powerful gales. While the lion’s acts were small, it was enough to freak out “the mens”. He abruptly rolled up his window and let on a screaming that seems to say, “OMG I’m I virtually just died.”

Seriously, turn your phone up, it’s worth a listen.

While seeing a lion in the mad is punishment, stalking it with your automobile with your openings down is a terrible idea.

Justin McLeod, Hinge’s founder& CEO, told Mashable, Our Member Experience team always receives emails from members asking for a wide-range of dating app suggestion. He said it was clear that singles wanted a safe cavity to question dating app related questions and receive dependable, data-backed advice.

Its up to Molly Fedick, IRLs Editor in Chief, to give it to them.

She reflects the content will be helpful to anyone who’s looking to find the accord of their dreamings, saying, Many of the issues we’re tackling are universal to dating apps in general. Happenings like dating app communications stalling, or being unsure of how many parties your accord is talking to.

Twitter absolutely despises these clear plastic jeans

Topshop just keeps wanting to make clear plastic jeans happen.

A mere matter of weeks after Topshop brought “Clear Knee Mom Jeans” into the world complete with transparent plastic knee patches the retailer’s gone and done it again. Topshop is now selling pairs of completely see-through plastic jeans at 55 ($70) a pop. And it’s safe to say the internet is having absolutely none of it.

“Think outside the box with these out-of-the-ordinary clear plastic jeans guaranteed to get people talking,” reads a product description of the rather unconventional “jeans”. According to Topshop, the jeans are a “straight leg cut” featuring “classic pockets detailing.”

“Ideal as a statement piece for a festival or costume party, take the look to the extreme with a bikini and sequin jacket or dress down, layered under an oversized jumper or asymmetric hem dress,” suggests Topshop.

You can always rely on Twitter to call BS on strange and highly unnecessary new trends.

One concerned person asked Topshop if it was feeling OK.

While another made use of the glorious evil Kermit meme to point out that Topshop hasn’t learned its lesson after the clear knee jeans.

Of course, some people pointed out one major flaw in the jeans, which will be less than ideal as we enter the warmer months.

One person said that even quirky fashionista Carrie Bradshaw wouldn’t go near these jeans.

One person felt the jeans weren’t a positive step in the reduction of plastic consumption.

And, one person was just completely and utterly done.

Topshop didn’t immediately respond to Mashable’s request for comment.

So, the verdict’s in: jeans and plastic just don’t mix. Sorry Topshop.
