There was a tweet out there, featuring a photo of one of those big programmable road signs clearly set up for a concert:
This came up when on the phone, and extensive silliness ensued. 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. 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... silveradept
provides helicopter-like sound effects.
Me: Now imagine the noise from a SQUADRON of these... silveradept

Me: *crying laughing*
