Time on Our Hands

As the World emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic, some of us have had a little more time on our hands to think, and it can be that these times present new opportunities.

Some would say that students always have time on their hands, so with such experience, it is not surprising that the students at Yale University found themselves amused by throwing pie dishes at each other! Someone saw them and filed for patents and designs under the name Flying Saucer and Pluto Platter with some success.

However, it is a corruption of the original pie dish manufacturer’s name Frisbie which persists today as the well-loved Frisbee. What is more, the average Frisbee now costs more than the average pie dish despite lower production costs!

Opportunities are all around us, the key is protecting them.
