+Dragon on Google
What happens when the activity stream moves too fast? Google+ has so
many users that many popular topics of interest appear to move at
the speed of light. We need a pause button to slow the activity
stream on occasion when it is moving to fast. The Dragon Scales have
been designed with this issue in mind. Rather then being caught down
stream with an overly active topic, Dragon Scales will allow you to
take your time and navigate at your own pace to the subject of
interest. From there, you can simply join in the conversation.
This is one of the many benefits of our Dragon Scale system.
Welcome to the Dragon Scale Directory
by Dragon Plus. Just incase you are wondering the meaning of a
"dragon scale directory", below you will find an explanation of
both dragon scales and the Dragon Scale Directory™.
What are Plus
Dragon Scales are the building block of our social networking
directory. Our scales are the individual units of information that
make up our unique data centric system. The Plus Dragon Scales are
formulated to provide information, tools, tips, and resources about
companies, brands, as well as abstract ideas.
thought to be a mythical creature, a dragon is actually real
creature not unlike an enormous reptile with large razor sharp
claws, a tail similar to a serpent, wings with the span of a
pterodactyl, and scaly skin (some species have the ability to
produce fire from their third lung). The
is essentially made up of numerous armor plated "dragon scales".
scales are normally
impenetrable, depending on a few variable factors (dragons age,
number of fierce battles, etc.) The dragons scales are the
primary building blocks of the dragons
The human body has several systems that make up its anatomy. The
dragon actually has much of the same systems. However, the
dragon has at least one additional system of the anatomy which
is called the "protective system". In summary, a dragon has a
skeletal, digestive, muscular, lymphatic, endocrine, nervous,
cardiovascular, male reproductive, female reproductive, urinary
and protective system. The scale of a dragon, is a portion of
the protective system.
In regard to most
reptiles with scales, the scales are made of keratin and are
formed from the epidermis. They may be ossified or tubercular,
as in the case of lizards, or modified elaborately, as in the
case of snakes. In regard to dragons (which are not actually
proven to be reptiles), we are still uncertain as to the
technical structure, elements, DNA, in the scales.
Known Attributes of
a dragon scale:
: Although it is marginal growth after a particular age, dragons
grow throughout their life. The protective system is structured
to take this continuous growth into account and the scales
continue to grow along with the other features of the dragons
Strength : A
dragon scale has unrivaled strength. The molecular structure is
so dense and impenetrable, scientist have been unable to
adequately study the true make up of the scales. Testing can
only be done on the extreme outer core because scientists have
been unable to breach the scale to conduct proper testing.
Diamond drill bits, burn testing, nuclear fusion, capillary
cryogenics testing, etc., has all failed.
Although it sounds unusual, each individual dragon scale
actually moves independently. They move at lightning fast speed
to contour to the dragons body position when the dragon is under
attack or in harms way. Similar to when a human sneezes and our
eyes shut automatically to avoid our eye balls from leaving our
scull. The dragons scale movement is a natural and very agile
reaction of the dragons overall protective system.
Similar to some lizards, a dragon may experience Autotomy (auto
means self; tomos means cut). In other words,
experience self-induced releasing of a specific body part. In
this case, I am referring to the self-induced release of an
individual or multiple number of scales. In regard to some
lizards, the tail can be pulled off by a predator. In regard to
a "dragon", the scales can NOT be pulled off by a predator.
However, the dragon has an internal mechanism to allow its body
to intentionally release a scale. Although the dragon is capable
of releasing scales as often as they wish, it is rarely done due
to the length of time for the new fully armored scale to
re-grow. During this time, the dragons protective system is
vulnerable. During the re-growth phase, the scale is of slightly
different color then the fully armored scales. Although the time
period of re-generation has some risk, the Autotomy ability of
the dragon is also beneficial. When a dragon scale re-generates,
it re-grows even stronger then the original.
Color & Misc. Properties: Scales
protect the body, aid it in locomotion, and allow moisture and
oxygen to be retained within. They also give simple or complex
coloration patterns which help in camouflage and anti-predator
display. The shape and number of scales on the head, back and
belly are characteristic to family, genus and species. Scales
typically but not always have a nomenclature analogous to the
position on the body. Scales vary in form from tubercular to
platelike, or imbricate (overlapping). Plus Dragon believes,
that some scales on the surface are composed of horny
(keratinized) epidermis which may have bony plates underlying
them; such plates would be called osteoderms. However, this
aspect has not yet been proven by science.
The scales have
several other attributes, and you can learn more about dragon
scale attributes at the
page on Google+.
Again, the scale
of a dragon is the building block of the dragons protective
system. In regard to
the scales are the
building blocks of our social networking directory.
Each Plus Dragon Scale™
is an the individual unit of information that make up our unique
data centric system. The Plus Dragon Scales are formulated to
provide information, tools, tips, and resources about companies,
brands, as well as abstract ideas. As part of the Plus Dragon
service, we have placed our Plus Dragon Scales into a directory
to guide our viewers with their research. Similar to actual
dragon scales, our system has the attributes of continuous
growth, strength, agility, and the re-generation of data.
The Dragon Scales
Directory is arranged by category of interest.
information about our services will follow shortly.
The Plus Dragon is working to break free. We will
keep you advised when the Dragon Scales are complete.
We hope that you
find our system beneficial. And yes, we do believe that dragons
exist. Don't you?
The Dragon Scales Directory is under development.
When it is launched to Beta we will let you know at
