The most-widely recognized acronym in the world is: USA.


The second most-widely recognized acronym in the world: UFO.


What does that tell you?


For the basics on UFOs:

en.wikipedia.org...



This probably the best UFO-related website in the world:

www.mufon.com...



If you have seen a UFO, here's where you go to report it:

www.nwlink.com...



Here's a good site with lots of vids of UFOs:

www.ufosightingsvideo.com...



Here's an interesting site where you can find where the UFO sightings are happening on maps:

www.ufomaps.com...



Right now I'm looking for global UFO maps... so, if you have a good url on this, please post it.



This is a nice UFO site that focuses on the evidence of UFOs:

www.ufoevidence.org...

I was gonna say UFO and then when I saw what forum it was in I knew it had to be that..lol

It doesnt need to be in say Sapnish for people to know what it is. Everyone pretty much knows what that means no matter what language you speak....

As far as the first one I am not gonna even say why people recognize that the most

*grin* Actually I did search, but I searched from the main page Google Custom Search box... with the terms "second most popular acronym" and came up with nothing, so I went ahead and posted.


Does the search box limit itself to each specific forum if you search in the specific forum? I figured that I'd search from the "board" page search box in order to broaden my search in an effort to avoid duplicate postings.

Sorry, it was meant has a joke. As far as I know though, the search feature searches all threads from all forum topic boards. However, if you want to conduct a more detailed search you can choose to run an advanced search.

Hi ArMaP,

I got the info from one of the documents that I was editing for Project Camelot -- one of the Zurich Conferences, I think, but I can't recall which. It was one of the scholars who had spoken that.


When -- if -- I find out which doc that reference is in and that it's been posted on Project Camelot (as of this post, PC is backlogged with some 6 or so edited docs that have not yet been posted; and I'm backlogged with 8 docs that I'm editing right now.), I'll post the url here.

Thanks.


The problem with things like that is that anyone can say whatever they want, I may say that the second most popular acronym is ATS, for example.

Honestly.

Here something I found.

www.all-acronyms.com...

UFO, nor USA are even in the top 100.

Not saying thats a nationally recognized list or anything. Just a site who ranks acronyms based on websearch's it seems.

Thanks for that url -- got it bookmarked. It does seem to be internet-centric, rather than based on whole world. I'm still looking for supporting evidence to back up what I posted, which, in turn was based on what I had read of some scholar said speaking at a conference in Zurich, I think.


I found this one...

www.acronymfinder.com...

...for those of you who may find it useful.

I'm sure they would know what you mean but mosts folks around Spain,Portugal,France,Italy etc.. call them OVNIs :


OVNI Objeto Volador No Identificado (Spanish: Unidentified Flying Object)
OVNI Objet Volant Non-Identifié (French: Unidentified Flying Object)
OVNI Oggetto Volante Non Identificato (Italian: Unidentified Flying Object)
OVNI Objecto Voador Não Identificado (Portuguese: Unidentified Flying Object)


Theres quite a good French OVNI video here exploring some very interesting cases:
www.dailymotion.com...
Cheers.

Just a small point but USA is not an acronym, it's an abbreviation you pronounce it as U S A, not YuSa!
UFO can be an acronym if its pronounced as yu-fo, but not if you pronounce it as U F O

An acronym is a word created by the initials of the word its made up of, like NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration), RADAR (Radio Direction and Ranging), SCUBA (Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus)
