Happy 50th Frisbee Answered

Saw this story on the midday news. Frisbee is 50 years old now. My how time flies. Time flies like a Frisbee? I didn't realize Wham-o was based in Emeryville,CA. (for those not familiar with the neighborhood that is a hop, skip and jump from here.
Hoola Hoops a Frisbee and Barbie lots of new toys for my parents to spend money one.
Do you have a favorite childhood toy? Plz don't say Knex...

K'NEX! Just kidding. Probably Jarts or the infamous Atomic Lab

How many people here play Ultimate? I'm not a sport teacher, but I occasionally cover PE lessons, or take a class into the gym for a bit of fun, and dig out my competition-weight Frisbees - I've tweaked the rules to play in a gym, but the kids love it.

In my town we play every Sunday and Wednesday, about 30 of us... I don't play every time but it has to be my favorite game ever. :-)

If you mean the copyrighted Frisbee disc owned by WHAM-O, then it is indeed 50 years old. The actual frisbee predates that - I have first hand account of Frisbie Baking Company pie tin throwing by a Yale alum :) Funny though, I just created a Facebook group for my local frisbee, erm, ULTIMATE, gang. So, in short, fuck semantics and enjoy frisbee throwing :)
