Sounds more like FIIK LO SAAH to me.

If you know a better joke then post it. Originally, I was going to title this 'Here be idiots' but we all knew that.
Despite knowing about indoctrination I thought it was a good idea to put a human Reaper near my office. Now I am a sentient husk :(.

Why are dragons so common throughout cultures around the globe?  My guess would be because the term 'dragon' has become a broad term that labels many creatures that have many differing characteristics from each other.

OR IT COULD BE PREDAKING'S FAULT. Yeah, that little incident...Forget that I ever said that I once unleashed a killer robot dragon into earth's prehistoric past,creating a stable time loop. Ok? Good.

Ibby? Magus? I think it's time to end some motherfuckers.  I'll get my sword.
There is light and darkness in the world, to be sure.  However, there's no harm to be had in walking in the shade or shadows.

Lol. Is that from Beast Hunters?
I'd be more sympathetic if people here didn't act like they knew what they were saying when they were saying something very much wrong.

I always thought that the answer was related to the likely discovery of dinosaur bones by those different cultures. Hence they each created these giant creatures and attributed magical and natural phenomena to them. Across the cultures the different dragons all have different physical features. The only thing similar in them is they are all large and scaled.

People also tend to forget that the people's of Europe and Asia have had contact with eachother since pretty much forever, what with it being a single landmass and all.  That might account for any minor similarities you might see in certain myths and legends.

Most likely. Also, can't wait for Friday's episode.

I wanted to hug the poor, smart, lonely predacon. It needs to squish Starscream.

This is the most likely reason why dragons exist all over the place.  People found fossils of dinos, made up their own stories.  Only reason everything is so similar is because of cultural contamination.

Ironbite-which is not a bad thing.
