n.— «Before classes started one recent morning, sixth-graders circled around an object dominated by neon-colored feathers. Cheers intensified as groups stretched their limbs to keep the small object from hitting the floor. The game is a modified version of jianzi, also known as Chinese hacky sack in the United States.» —“Game travels from China” by Erin Hemme-Froslie In-Forum (Fargo, North Dakota) Jan. 15, 2007.
