Skipping is the most underrated form of travel, and I will use the authority of experience, and the magic of truth to formulate and justify my argument.
You shouldn't even try to change my view because what I speak is a truth manifested by the movement of all mankind throughout history.
That said, it ain't easy defending skipping as the most underutilized, underappreciated, and underrated form of human travel due to it's ostracization throughout history.
One quick example is noted in JRR Tolkien historic novella, "Lord of the Rings," as the orcs, the bad guys, NEVER skip (no citations needed). Not once.
That's why they're so angry: because they never experienced the magic of skipping. And that's why we went to war: lack of skipping.
If they had skipped into battle then they would've canceled the war altogether and ate lembas bread and watch Gandalf shoot fireworks. The middle ages would've be a better place.
Therefore, skipping is more than just an efficient form of travel: it's an opportunity to change ones lifestyle.
The first lifestyle change lies in the efficiency of skipping,
because you're using the power of science to momentum yourself around from Point A to Point B through Z (Z because you saved so much energy from not running that you can actually go
all places you couldn't go before).
Dan Carlin of Hardcore History notes in his lesson on Alexander the Great that the armies would often times march at a constant pace,
and eventually his men were bitter because they were so far from home.
If they had skipped, they would've traveled THRICE as far and actually circled the globe and would've been back home already.
Additionally, skipping helps the heart. It's more functional than other natural movements.
Walking is lumberous, crawling hurts on sidewalk, moonwalking is too slow,
and running makes you elitist and then you spend money on shoes and heartrate monitors and eventually you leave for some triathlete.
But skipping would never do that, because skipping doesn't cheat. Skipping doesn't lie. Skipping doesn't hurt. Skipping is an opportunity to feel again.
It lets you feel the wind upon your face after nights alone in the dark. Skipping let's you feel like you're going places and not stuck in second gear all the time.
It let's you feel like there's more to life than just... being left behind. Skipping makes you feel alive, again.
Next in line for the True Facts Report on this vehicle of the human body is that skipping fills your body with joy.
It's what the Grinch should've done to originally make his heart grow three sizes bigger, because it makes even the most curmudgeonly of folk feel better about life.
A man once said, "motion changes **e**motion." The body can't help but release chemicals whilst skipping, causing us to feel elation, euphoria, excitement, and excitement, and other e-words.
Lastly, it's contagious.
You throw in a bit of whistling and some arm back-and-forth and you got yourself a regular ole ballyhoo that others will see as an opportunity to shed their blanket bitterness against life
and actually do something to curb their frustrations. It's a physical activity that others can't help but join in, like a Conga Line or a spontaneous riot.
Imagine the streets filled with skipping whistlers, with men who dream, with folks who actually care again.
Men, women, and elderly locked arms and skipping, whistling show tunes and making life a better place to be.
Not only is skipping the most underutilized and unappreciated form of human travel, but it's opportunity to be happy again, and that's why it's the most underrated form of travel.
