1. The Origins of Dragonglass
Of all the Game of Thrones theories, this one is the funniest, which is why we had to include it as number one.
Let’s see if we can explain this without being too graphic: dragonglass is the very thing that kills the White Walkers. It’s commonly accepted in Westeros that dragonglass is made out of obsidian. However, if we recall, some doubted the existence of dragonglass in the first place, because they figured it went the way of the dragons.
That brings us to the dragons.
Dragons eat. A lot.
Eating causes the process of digestion to happen, no matter what your species.
The end result of the digestion process is the generation of energy.
And whatever isn’t used in the generation of energy, through the process of metabolism, needs to be excreted out.
So in this Game of Thrones theory, it turns out that dragonglass is, quite simply, dragon poop.
Yes, it’s a little Beavis and Butt-head. But admit it: you laughed.
And this isn’t something that we expect to be proposed in the upcoming season. However, if you need a little levity – because Game of Thrones tends to get intense – think of all the dragonglass as hardened dragon crap.
What do you think of these Game of Thrones theories?
