I prefer just throwing to the next tee pad and dropping my stuff off.

A true veteran move, but not always the most helpful in scoring.

I am all for being polite. My parents called it "the way". As in there is a right way and wrong way to do everything...

What I meant in my statement was people that prioritize political correctness over logic and/or look for ways to demonize an otherwise ambiguous statement, much like your reply...

I didn't demonize your statement nor was it ambiguous when you used "GD political correctness".

My issue is that logic and being polite (politically correct) are not mutually exclusive, as you seem to think.

I'm just trying to keep those snot-nosed 40-year old punks off my lawn.

But yes, I started playing object Frisbee golf with 165 Whammo Frisbees because disc golf didn't exist yet. And remember when the Aviar came out and seemed like a crazy fast and super-overstable high-speed driver.

If you can't see the gaping hole between "language that is not offensive" and people getting offended, you have much bigger problems than anything we're discussing...

Just because I'm on lunch and bored, I'll give you a perfect example:

There is so much stupid in this article that I don't even know where to start...

Archaic Signs: If you are such a delicate snowflake that you've never considered a career in the construction industry because the signs only indicate "men" working, then I'm not really sure you can handle a career in construction...

High Level Thinking: The whole point of the signs is to raise awareness in work zones for safety. If this world were grounded in logic, the new signs would shorten the text or use infographics to illustrate "People at Work" or "Workers Present".

Unfortunately, we live in a politically correct world where people are looking for any reason to be offended. So, as a society, we'll spend time on sh!t like this instead of dealing with real problems like our education system, welfare reform, crime, education, etc., etc., etc.

For me it's the laziness of the forehand crowd. They refuse to learn how to throw back hand and rely on crazy overstable discs to hide their terrible form. They insist on some glideless dumpy forehand when it's clear a backhand turnover is the right way to attack the hole.

BH turnover is the weakest part of my game. That is due, in part, because I have a good FH game. FH has come a bit easier for me due to a lengthy baseball history. I'll admit that a BH turnover is occasionally a better way to attack a hole but most times a FH will suffice and is sometimes superior.

I don't rely on OS discs for FH, I can throw every disc in my bag both BH and FH. Can't tell you the last time I threw a Comet FH, but I know I can do an anny flick with it in a pinch. Generally I throw my JB Roach for those shots though.

Oh, and I'm not f'n lazy. I continue to work on BH turnover shots and even throw them when it counts occasionally.... with mixed results.
