Mind Whack: Definitions

Mind Whack: anything that makes you think from a different perspective.

Something about the term UFO amuses me- namely, the connotations it's picked up. UFO, is, literally, Unidentified Flying Object. Nothing in that states that it has to be extraterrestrial.

So what's with all the arguments over whether something's a UFO or not? If it's flying and you can't identify it, then it is, by definition, a UFO. Whether it's some alien spacecraft or not remains to be seen, but it's an unidentified flying object if it's been through the air and you can't identify it. I can launch a chicken out of a slingshot and as long as the neighbors can't tell what it is, then to everybody but me, it really was a UFO.

It amuses me how the definition has been modified to imply extraterrestrial origin.

Ping Pong Pain...

Ouch. My dad got a splinter of our ping-pong table up under his fingernail.

We were only doing warm-ups; he didn't even need to make that diving catch...

ouch. Just... ouch.

Changing Codes

...Due to a few interesting "flashes" and odd dreams, my dragon code's C tag has changed to C~ (chameleonic). Just a note.

And an apology to

And an apology to <lj-user="layra"> for not having really the right information for me to be drawn really correctly. On the flip side, that <i>is</i> the color scheme I prefer, so it's mostly accurate...
