The inventor of the Frisbee was cremated and turned into a Frisbee. I personally can’t think of any reason why, if you were cremated, you wouldn’t want your remains to go somewhere that you love or enjoy.

The invention of a flying disc type object has been around for thousands of years. The Greeks used a very similar item as a weapon of war, the discus, which is used today in Olympic events. While basic flying discs have been in use for a very long time, it wasn’t really until Walter Morrison came along before the Second World War that the device started to find a niche as a toy.
