Imagine Dragons Parking: probably VTOL.

There was a tweet out there, featuring a photo of one of those big programmable road signs clearly set up for a concert:

IMAGINE
DRAGONS
PARKING

and commentary:




This came up when on the phone, and extensive silliness ensued.

[personal profile] silveradept pointed out that dragons can bend, and would have their wings folded up and probably their necks raised and tails curled.

I asked how that affected take-off.

[personal profile] silveradept said that they'd always thought of dragons as VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing).

And I was like: No, you've got to have enough SIDE room, so like:
Imagine you have a wide dragon in a compact space...
... and two other dragons crammed in, in the spaces next to it...

(at this point we have both dissolved in giggles)

At which point I speculate that in order to achieve VTOL, the dragon is beating its wings like a hummingbird...

[personal profile] silveradept provides helicopter-like sound effects.

Me: Now imagine the noise from a SQUADRON of these...

Me: *crying laughing*

Yup.
