Cups a.k.a. Fricket or disc cricket is a disc game generally played by two teams of two players each, though it is possible to play one-on-one. The game is roughly derived from cricket, and played with flying discs. Fricket is played throughout the US, and depending on the region you're from can also be called drunken snatch, catchy-throwy, cups,crispy wickets, or stickupski. The name "fricket" is derived from a portmanteau of the words "Frisbee" and "cricket". The more colloquial term "drunken snatch" refers to the inebriated players snatching the flying cups out of the air.

  3. CUPS: The Carnegie Mellon University Usable Privacy and Security Laboratory was established in the Spring of 2004 to bring together Carnegie Mellon University researchers working on a diverse set of projects related to understanding and improving the usability of privacy and security software and systems. The privacy and security research community has become increasingly aware that usability problems severely impact the effectiveness of mechanisms designed to provide security and privacy in software systems. Indeed, one of the four grand research challenges in information security and assurance identified by the Computing Research Association in 2003 is: "Give end-users security controls they can understand and privacy they can control for the dynamic, pervasive computing environments of the future." This is the challenge that CUPS strives to address. CUPS is affiliated with Carnegie Mellon CyLab and has members from the Engineering and Public Policy Department, the School of Computer Science, the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, the Heinz College, and the Department of Social and Decision Sciences.
