We didn't like today's solar eclipse and tried to find a scientific way to hurry it up. All we could think of was the old Chinese method of banging drums and gongs to scare away the evil dragon that was consuming the sun. And believe it or not, it worked! We stood in the street bashing frying-pans and saucepans for only about half an hour, when the beast slowly began to let the sun go! Those old astronomers knew a few tricks that we've lost in modern times. :fsm_rock:

In Chinese mythology dragons do lust after celestial bodies. The moon is especially important owing to its perceived involvement in the creation of precious pearls (hence the representation of the dragon clutching a pearl is common). It was considered impossible for the dragon to capture the sun so a depiction of the attempt became the motif of the Judge, the implication being the likelihood of the Judge ever being bribed was as remote as the dragon catching the sun. [That's pretty much what David just said.]
