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.

YES!! Thank you! I've been trying to tell people this for a long time, and no one seems to understand! Finally, someone who does actually understand what a UFO is.

..Is that you in that picture? ^__^

Me at my most nerdy and human-shaped. Actually, the pic is about two years out-of-date, but it's still the best I have for nerdiness.

BTW... could you go back a day or two on my LJ to where I posted about the journal filters I have, and let me know if you want to be on them? I've placed you on my closed filter ("Dragons"), but not the other two.

I'd like to be on all of them! *chuckles* I'd even want to hear all about all of the wierd things that happen to you that you say are too weird. Maybe you can email them to me? *grins* Trust me.. I'm sure it can't be that wierd. My human is trying to get his mate, and her mother changed back into their true forms, so.. *lauhgs*

If I post the weird parts, it will be under a fourth filter.

...hmm...

Anyway, you're now on my proofreading team, since you're on the Essay filter; please help, I've got fewer than 11 days to get my college application in! And on the Metaphysical section, a logical choice.
