Objects vs Other

I object (pun intended) to arbitrary 'other' objects being designated 'objects'. Everything on the list is an object.

ob·ject noun

 1.    a material thing that can be seen and touched.
 2.    a person or thing to which a specified action or feeling is directed.

I am changing them back to 'other objects'. I also created some new categories where there is enough of a subset to warrant a new category.

Please, if you wish to make finer distinctions than other/object, come up with a more descriptive category. Having both 'other' and 'objects' is just creating two separate misc categories. If you feel some of the items that are left as 'other' are not what you think of as objects, perhaps create a category for them that clarifies the distinction.
