    HA HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHA! That cracked me up. No you chump! And I wondered what the heck norester was going on about! Although I do skip like a little girl in a meadow, when no one else is looking and I am wearing flat shoes.

    I was trying very hard to imagine boxers with gruff faces skipping across a gym, back and forth getting a workout.
    The remainder is an unjustifiable, egotistical power struggle
    At the expense of the American dream, American dream
    Of the American

    With all your global profits
    And all your jeweled pearls
    We don`t give a damn about your world

    That is so funny! I think your sort of skipping would be great as an alternative to walking. I think I may try it.

    Sounds like a great exercise to me. It can have the intensity of a sprint if you're skilled at it, plus it has the added bonus of being a bit difficult so you're exercising some different muscles, as well as exercising your brain!

    Skipping with a rope, or skipping like a sprinter warming up... both good I reckon.

    Skipping through a meadow with birds and chipmunks following you is probably best left to Disney characters...
