Default Happy frisbee birthday

I stumbled across this trivia tidbit this morning: on this day in 1957, toy company Wham-O produced the first batch of aerodynamic plastic discs, known as the "Pluto Platter" which was later changed to frisbee, in honor of William Frisbie's pie company

I found a Pluto Platter at a garage sale for $0.25 a few years ago. It was not in good shape, but still a real one!

I should throw either my Ultimate Frisbee lid or my old Touchline golf discs today. But they're all antiques and its already raining today, so I'll probably just fondle them for awhile.
