Did you know it's an actual sport? It comes in different varieties, the most popular among which are The Ultimate (teams) and Disc Golf (individuals), along with Freestyle, Double Disc Court, Discathon, Guts and Field Events.

See for example http://www.bdga.org.uk/:

Quote:
The BDGA exists to look after the interests of disc golfers in Britain and to promote the growth of the sport. One of its primary tasks is the collection and dissemination of information.


or http://www.ukultimate.com/:

Quote:
The UK Ultimate Association (UKUA) is the National Governing Body for the sport of Ultimate. The UKUA is responsible for the growth, development and promotion of Ultimate in this country.

Ultimate is an exciting, non-contact team sport, played by thousands the world over. It mixes the best features of sports such as football, basketball, american football and netball into an elegantly simple yet fascinating and demanding game - played with a flying disc.


Can't help giggling a bit...

Frisbee Golf makes me think of Gonniss - The glorious mix of Tennis and Golf. Ah Look Around You, such joy.

Walter Frederick Morrison was held in Stalag 13 during WWII ..

Q: Who invented the modern frisbee
K: Frisbie Pie company, Walter Morrison (solely)
A: Walter Morrison & Warren Franscioni - click here and the usual Wiki Article

I think its time QI gave Warren Franscioni his due!

from the first link

Quote:
They sold them for $1 through outlets like Woolworth and Disneyland. ... A Disneyland employee demonstrating the Flyin' Saucer accidentally overshot a fence and hit a woman in the head. She sued, and Disney halted its demonstrations.


is this where the litigation culture started ?

Q: Where would you find the "Rings of Headrick"
K: name of any planet - name of any body part
A: On a modern frisbee - they are named after Ed Headrick a designer/inventor at Wham-O. The Rings of Headrick stablize the flight of the frisbee as opposed to the wobbly flight of the earlier "Pluto Platter".

Sorry about the poor grammar in the first post, but I wrote this two minutes before the bell for another lesson.

I think you're looking for different things: Austin is suggesting that he did indeed mistype 'student' as 'studnet'; and Tas is searching for toy-based, drug-fuelled ponrongraphy.
