I bet most of you will recall Chris Wallaces brave effort to attempt a presidential debate, wherein things quickly devolved into petty squabbling and Donald Trump threatened to ignore the concept of democracy completely. For those of us who missed it for whatever reason, youre about to see the craziest thing: a dragon. Something you thought youd never see outside of Game of Thrones or perhaps a viewing of Shrek.
Were all pretty familiar with the idea of a dragon: fire breathing, giant flying lizards. Its likes: eating humans and its dislikes being humans in any other capacity. The idea of a dragon in Western culture is drastically different to that in China, where theyre revered and as mythical creatures, and even celebrated in New Years festivities. Its from China where this video originates, as it appears to show a dragon flying through the air, maybe on its way to meet the Khaleesi or to grant Goku a wish.
In this video by YouTuber ApexTV, it appears to show a dragon flying in plain sight, and with more than a million views already, its gained popularity pretty quickly:
Apparently taken by a man on the border of Laos, this unidentified flying object was originally mistaken for a bird, but upon closer view appeared to resemble a pterodactyl or a dragon (apparently, theres more than one way to pronounce that word). Partway through the video, we get some unedited (always a good sign) footage of the dragon flying over the hills before flying behind another hill out of sight in a straight line. Like the existence of aliens, some people are hard to convince and others are hard to convince otherwise, and opinion is certainly
split over this video.
The first thing to note here, is that the flying object has two legs, whereas a dragon would have four. People were very quick to point this out.
Some people, though, were pretty convinced, and some enthusiasts gave us their views on why dragons could exist
A couple, though, chose to ignore the video and zero in on the narrators pronunciation of dragon.
Never change, internet. This is the kind of conversation, full of mystery, intrigue and colourful characters, that you just dont see in real life. Personally? Since Im a massive fan of Skyrim, I hope this video is true so I can hope that I am the Dovahkiin, but on the other hand, it feels like a live dragon would be pretty devastating to humanity. I would also hope I could do a better video editing job, as its pretty obviously fake.
