My friend Chris just passed this sad information on to me. Richard Knerr, a co-founder of the company that turned the Hula Hoop and Frisbee into beloved toys, has died. He also was the reason why we have the slip n slide and super frisbee. This man deserves a moment of science for helping children, hippies, and drunk college students with inventions that have stayed relevant for decades. You sir, are a true American hero.
