Walking funny

One of my daily Google Reader reads had this nugget:

Floor Tiles

Some friends and I just had a conversation about this type of thing. Sometimes (well, often) when I’m in a car and there are fences along the side, I feel the need to “jump” over the fence posts. What this means is that I lift my toes (inside my shoes) whenever one comes by. It gets difficult as the speed goes up and I stop. I’m not quite so OCD that I have to do it, but it’s rather often. Also, if I’m walking and there are patchy shadows (like that from trees), I’ll try to use those as little islands to walk up (basically like the black tiles in this case). I think the last one is that I will actually try not to not step on cracks.

So clearly it’s not just me, anyone else?

As an aside, it seems like this blog is really just becoming yet another “blog filter” of other people’s articles… guess I don’t have much to say all that much. Will try to fix that. But hopefully they are at least interesting.
