From: James Smith <zeus001002.nul> Date: Mon, 23 May 2005 09:30:33 -0400 (GMT-04:00) Fwd Date: Mon, 23 May 2005 12:51:56 -0400 Subject: 'Fleet' Is Biased Term Who on the List believes that the very term "Fleets" used to describe the Mexican UFO videos is biased and leads the reader to believe the video is of a collection of intelligently controllable vehicles which may at least (though highly unlikely) have origination from contemporary Earth and at most derive from alien (off-world, time travelers, whatever)? The various menaings of the noun "fleet" include naval/boat fleet (~30% usage), aircraft fleet (~30%), car or truck fleet (~30%) and obscure meanings (<10%). Thus, you cannot of a fleet of meteors/bolides/ball lightning/balloons/ birds/angels/ demons/giant unknown spores/amorphous cloud life forms/ectoplasma. By the very term "fleet", one implies intelligence and a vehicle before one has even begun to properly address the 'intelligence' of the phenomena or even 'vehicleness'. The reader is also guided to believe that the "fleet" is alien if they presume (quite logically) that present day human military or commercial or industrial entities would not be so stupid as to operate "fleets" of such vehicles in easily observable airspace.
