    Few people know that the real reason St. Michael managed to slay the dragon is that he secretly switched his jinxed d20 with the dragon’s lucky d20.

    I always though St. George was the one with the dragon.

    I give one vote for St George and not this St Michael dude you speak of.

    My bad also…I thought that St. Micheal smoked cigs and drank alot and chased women??? (John Travolta).

    I’d like to live in a world where the dragon slayed the saint.

    Now wait… so if a dude is a saint for killing dragons, does that mean that the Catholic faith allows for the belief of dragons? I’m converting back…

    It is in the Storkyrkan or the Great Church in Stockholm Sweden.

    It’s even cooler in person.

    @swedishdest: Thanx. I really need to get out of the states again. There’s so much I want to see across the pond.

    @nyokki: Me too. Huge history buff here. I would get giddy simply walking on a Roman Road or likewise.

    @Puulaahi: I totally agree with you. Being a european living in the US I miss the vibe of history you get when you walk these old streets and have the Colosseum emerge in front of you (or whatever old building you might be at). So yeah, hop on a plane ang get over there again. I susually try to do it at least once a year.

    @velador: I’ve never been to Europe. So many places I want to go. Been to Hawaii, Mexico and Fiji though. So it’s not like I haven’t left the USA.

    @nyokki: So many more tropical places I want to go to: Marquesas Islands, Caribbean, Tahiti… You’d love it nyokki. Just lay out at the beach and do nothing if you would like or hiking/scuba/surfing. Tis the life.

    @Puulaahi: That sounds perfect right now. We’re back down in the 20s again.

    as good as that all sounds (and it really does), I am more of a cold weather guy. But hey, I would go anywhere right now as long as my cell doesn’t work and can get some lazy relax time.

    This is a lie… Those dragons could have killed any one of those pitiful humans at will… It funny how you go extinct and suddenly the stories all change…

    @Phyreblade: Apparently they couldn’t, otherwise we’d be the extinct ones.

    @nyokki: No, no, no, you got it all wrong. It is a myth that dragons intended the destruction of mankind. They were very intelligent creatures, very sporting, love riddles, etc. perhaps a little mischievous, but there were really very few truly bad ones, and I’m willing to bet some stupid humans crying “Kill the dragon! Kill the dragon!” for no reason other than they were scared probably was the determining factor in their sour disposition toward humans. If you look back in history, you will see there are many cultures that had great mutually beneficial relationships with dragons. It is… Read more »

    @phyreblade: Dragon bones were put into the soil to test our faith in Science Fiction Authors.
    Or something like that.

    @velador: Ah yes, but then where did the dragons come from… ?
