    It actually happens a lot when things are bigger than you initially perceive. For example, when you're in the california desert and you see a mountain in the distance, it might appear to be two miles when it's 8.

    I have a bunch of forward observers who work for me, and it's one of the illusions we teach them when it comes to estimating distance.
