You Learn Something New Every Day

In oriental art, you can tell which country a dragon figure is from by counting the number of toes. A dragon with five toes is Chinese, four toes is Korean and three is Japanese. All three countries have similar legends explaining why this is so and thus why dragons originated in their country.

1 Wow, like counting a tree's rings almost...except with dragons...and their toesies.

2 Neat! At some point I'm going to inappropriately impress someone by saying "no no, that's Korean."
