FACT:

The man who invented the Frisbee was cremated and made into a Frisbee when he died.

 

EXPLANATION:

The Frisbee was created by Walter Frederick Morrison in 1937 when he got the idea from throwing a popcorn lid at his girlfriend. The product did not hit stores until 1957 however because Morrison was shot down in WWII and held as prisoner of war. When he got home he took a few years to decompress then began his work with the product again. When he died in 2010 his children thought it best that he be put in the thing he loved most.
