"Look At All The People Here Tonight"

Did you ever notice when there are demonstrations or rallies, the pro rally people always estimate the crowd's size to be much larger than the numbers given by those opposed to the rally?

For my mom, they're all huge crowds. Whether it's hundred in the studio audiences seen on the Dr. Phil or Oprah Winfrey shows, or tens of thousands of spectators at major league sports stadiums, it's all the same to her. "Wow, look at all the people," a phrase she says all the time with equal levels of amazement. This lack of judgment extends to perception of distance and speed, too.
