With these Earth changes, imagine how tough it would be for us if we were actually getting older, too.

It's become the fashion, at least around here, to take a selfie with the disc and basket after hitting an ace, and post it on social media. Probably causes lots of eye-rolling from non-discing friends, as well as a few discing ones, but at least it doesn't damage the baskets.

I once hit a doubles ace. Partner was more excited than I. He had his phone out ready to take my picture and was surprised when I didn't pose.

I put the date, course and hole # on mine. One thing I don't like is a bunch of signatures all over my disc. I got talked into that once, and I regretted it later. It's just not necessary to me. The disc goes back in the bag like any other disc.

I don't get many aces, but I get more excited when I see someone else get one than when I get one. I think when I get one I'm in a small state of shock.

I just put the date somewhere neatly inside the rim and let a witness sign it if around. I don't retire it, I keep throwing it as long as it's doing what I want it to do.

I don't do the signature thing, either. Never really appealed to me.

But it's all in the category of To each their own. As long as people aren't tagging baskets, it's all good.

The disc and the moment are yours. Document your feat however you want.

The tee sign and the basket belong to everyone. If they could speak, they'd tell you that wasn't their first rodeo and won't be their last, so any documenting of the feat that involves them should be relegated to your camera.

The first one I was super pumped, because I called the line including it skipping...not calling the ace but that if I threw that shot right it will ace run on the skip and stay in the circle. Hit it right, and it stuck in. Signed and dated it...but kept throwing it and eventually lost it.

My perspective is you threw the ace, the disc didn't do it for you. So I keep throwing them, and have lost a few ace discs. Sucks just like losing any other disc that I've thrown for a while.

I get more excited now if I throw the exact line I wanted and get it in or hit metal. I've had a couple of goofy shots stick and I more laugh at it and am amused by the situation that those are the ones that work, but it also sucks when I splash out on the perfect line that I thought was going to be in the whole time.

It depends on what region you are in.... but in most areas you are supposed to dry hump the basket after an ace. If you don't do this it is bad luck and most people believe you will not get another ace for 7 years!!!
