I see a lot of UFOs, because I don't trust myself to reliably identify things that are flying far away.

Can't tell whether the guy in that helicopter is Bob or his identical cousin Robert? He's a UFO now!

@pnathan
No, I have pretty good vision. I just know too much about the human perceptual system to believe my eyes.

@enkiv2 I'm at least open to the idea that "UFO" is a term that's evolving away from it's originally stipulated meaning. The same way that "bigot" originally used to mean intolerance broadly construed (whereas now it tends to be used to mean intolerance toward disempowered groups), or how people use the phrase "beg the question" when they are 'supposed' to say "raise the question.'"
