    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

    We don`t give a damn about your world
    With all your global profits
    And all your jeweled pearls
    We don`t give a damn about your world
    Right now, right now!

    They then play patty cake to improve their hand-eye co-ordination

    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...
