Fascinating stuff - in a previous post at:

http://www.virtuallystrange.net/ufo/updates/2005/feb/m09-007.shtml

I found an article reporting that in some instances, older
people's visual perception was more accurate than younger
people's.

If this is so, then older people see things better, but just
can't remember doing so!


Cheers,

Joe
