*The Method Of Inversive Geometry:*

We place a spherical cage in the desert and enter it. We then perform

an inverse operation with respect to the cage. The lion is then inside

the cage and we are outside.

*The Set Theoretic Method:*

We observe that the desert is a separable space. It therefore contains

an enumerable dense set of points from which can be extracted a sequence

having the lion as the limit. We then approach the lion stealthily along

this sequence bearing with us suitable equipment.

*Topological Method:*

We observe that the lion has at least the connectivity of the torus.

We transport the desert into four-space. It is then possible to carry

out such a deformation that the lion can be returned to 3-space in a

knotted condition. He is then helpless.

*The Dirac Method:*

We observe that wild lions are ipso facto not observable in the Sahara

desert. Consequently, if there are any lions in Sahara, then they are

tame. The capture of a tame lion is left as an exercise for the reader.

*The Thermodynamic Method:*

We construct a semi-permeable membrane which is permeable to everything

except lions and sweep it across the desert.

*The Schrodinger Method:*

At any given moment there is a positive probability that there is a

lion in the cage. Sit down and wait.

*Heisenberg Method:*

You will disturb the Lion when you observe it before capturing. So Keep

your eyes closed.

*Einstein Method:*

Run in the direction opposite to that of the lion. The relative velocity

makes the lion run faster and hence it feels heavier and gets tired.
