Do rich people have to show driving aptitude to buy Ferraris and other supercars that are way too much car for them? If it makes someone happy to throw warp speed drivers, does it impact anyone really?

No. They can learn the hard way, just like everybody else. Plus when they abandon their high speed drivers, I can pick them up for cheap in the used disc bin.

Yeah, I was hoping a special graphic license plate like you can get for many other interests. I have a bicycling "share the road" plate, for instance.

I wouldn't be surprised if they are outlawed in the near future(RELAX. I am not saying they should be). Somebody posted a link to a news article a couple months ago, where the victim(or maybe the victim's wife, I cant recall) of an accidental head strike, made a point to single out the Boss as a dangerous disc due to its designed edge shape. If these incidents continue to happen, it could have a damaging effect, including laws restricting the design of high speed/sharp rims.

And yet, it's not. Although, giving small kids soft toys to play with can keep them from hurting others.

Learning to throw the comet well completely changed my game. BUT if someone would of handed me the comet as a first disc I would of quit before I started.

People need to fall in love with Dg before they need to get better at Dg.

What would be the most horrible/best disc to learn with?

I have a floppy dog disc lid that I think has actually improved my game a little. It's so hard to throw and it doesn't like to be strong armed.

Worst?... Nuke OS, Energy, Rask... Basically anything stupid OS.

A used but not abused dx Valk or Tbird, would be the best, IMO, for a random beginner who isn't taking it seriously.
