So yesterday, I'm at a place and some kids are throwing a Frisbee. One of them misses their mark and it lands by me, then one of them shouts to me, "Hey man, throw us the disk."

I knew what they wanted, but disk? The sport is called Ultimate Frisbee not Ultimate Disk. Frisbee golf, not Disk golf(actually i may be wrong there). What does the pit think? poll soon.

Isn't frisbee just a brand of disk? Maybe they weren't using a frisbee, just like not all tissues are kleenex.

Any one else play disk golf?

Frisbee named the Frisbee the Frisbee. There were different disks before that, but Frisbee was the original. And the point on the sport. Not ultimate disk.

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

I think its time to pack your things lets go,
To a place where we both know,
And dont worry, I'll drive real slow,
Spend some time before we go..

Maybe it was a ripoff frisbee, which would be a disk, and they weren't playing the sport.

It's still a Frisbee. A knock off yo-yo wouldn't be called a Retractable Fun Circle.

well, i dont know if frolf is the same as disc golf, but:

http://www.pdga.com/

http://www.innovadiscs.com/

the first line of this wiki page makes it sound like frisbee is the name of the game, played with discs.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultimate_Frisbee

edit:

Ultimate Frisbee (often called Ultimate in reference to the trademarked brand name)


actually sounds like it is a brand name.

Frisbee is actually a brand of flying disk. They used to make pie tins, then someone found out people were throwing their tins at each other and good things happened.
#28
So they were Hippies that called it a disk? Freedom to call it what ever they want man.

playing disc golf with a frisbee is insanely hard. theres only a few kids that I know that could throw a frisbee as far as a disc, and if wind enters the equation then the frisbee is still screwed.

I always assumed that the diffrence between a disc and a frisbee, besides obvious diffrent looks, was that discs tend to weigh over 100g (normally around 140g at the lightest from what I've found) while frisbee's have little weight to them at all.

So? It's still the brand name. All bandages aren't Band-Aids. All MP3 players aren't iPods. All foam footballs aren't Nerf. All flavored gelatin isn't Jello. All disks aren't Frisbees.

No, it wouldn't, because "yo-yo" is not a brandname. Nobody owns "yo-yo."

I say it kind of depends on the item. Stuff like band-aid and frisbee you call by the brand name. You don't call all tv's a sony.

Why not? It's the exact same principle.

#36
Let's face it, with small stuff like Frisbees and band aids there's only one big brand. Meanwhile with TV's there's several big brands and big differences between those brands.
#39
if its disc golf then they are called discs. frisbee is a brand name that does not make disc golf discs.
