Reply PJ Grogan on March 26, 2010 at 2:06 am There's a weight off my shoulders. I was thinking about integrating skipping into my everyday activity for 2010. If People magazine says it's OK…. Reply Someone on March 26, 2010 at 3:20 am The Mongols…well, I always have liked the Mongols, even if I don't have any direct relation lines to them. And who doesn't wave sparklers when they skip? Reply Hubcaps on March 26, 2010 at 5:05 am I think I'll skip skipping… Reply stillbourne on March 30, 2010 at 6:36 am Walk without rhythm and it won't attract the worm.

Seriously, thank you for pointing that out to me.

When I was in high school, walking down a long hall with nobody around, I'd skip so that if somebody appeared, I couldn't get busted for running. Reply Kimi on December 10, 2010 at 3:22 pm Yup, did the same thing. It worked too! Reply swgeek on January 5, 2011 at 3:05 pm until you run into the blind old bat that turns you in for running anyway just because they couldn’t tell the difference, or want you to be viewed as a troublemaker. Reply Handgunman on March 10, 2011 at 5:32 pm What I do I just run fast enough that they can't stop me, or identify me Reply Eric P on January 12, 2011 at 5:54 pm Sure I'll skip, through details. 😀 Reply Chucc on January 30, 2011 at 6:52 pm Why does Genghis Kahn only have one arm?

Reply Ed Casey on February 9, 2012 at 8:05 am Thank you. I just went and read that paper, thoroughly enjoying it. Reply topherdude on November 2, 2011 at 1:06 pm This is awesome. Reply Axel on April 9, 2014 at 5:48 pm I actually kinda enjoy skipping it’s faster than walking and less tiring than jogging Reply GuesssWho on October 12, 2014 at 8:29 am I’m not sure why people use ‘gay’ to mean ‘wimpy.’ I mean, the Spartans were all gay and they were fucking scary. Reply Adam on October 12, 2014 at 9:30 pm Easy on the F-bombs. Reply Katsuni on January 19, 2015 at 9:23 pm Skipping does look dumb, but it’s terrifyingly efficient and fast when going downhill. It takes virtually no energy and you can go about as fast as you would while running on a flat surface. As such, people who don’t skip downhill are just crazy. =P People who try to skip uphill are probably more crazy, though.
