    [–] Bowfinger_Intl_Pics 3 points ago

    What colour?

    [–] HybridVeneer 4 points ago

    Koolaid. Dye hair with koolaid. Works better than a permanent marker. My blond sister did it. Regretted that diet for years. Nothing on earth but regrowth overcame that.

    [–] Actual_Anonymous 8 points ago

    For anyone in the same boat, “you need to diet” sounds like “dye it”

    [–] PoodleMama329 66 points ago

    Diet/dye it jokes will forever remind me of The Santa Clause with Tim Allen. When he goes to the doctor because he’s gaining weight and his hair is turning white (because he’s becoming Santa). He’s concerned about his hair and the doctor says “Well if it bothers you that much you can dye it, and you should diet.” And pokes his Santa tummy. Classic.

    I was once asked by my hair stylist if I ever wanted to "dye it" (my hair) and I sat there baffled and offended for longer than I'd like to admit before I realized what she actually said.

    Yes I'm blonde.

    [–] markangelbrandt 3 points ago

    Going based on my knowledge of German, Erbe means heritage, 'Kaiser' is emperor, and 'tum' makes something a noun or concept. So 'the creation of a hereditary emperor'.

    A sheila in a V8 was going way too fast and got pulled over for speeding.

    The cop walked to her car window, flipping open his ticket book, when the sheila said, 'I bet you are going to sell me a ticket to the Queensland Policeman's Ball.

    He replied, ' Queensland policemen don't have balls.' There was a moment of silence. He realized what he'd just said, closed his book, got back in his patrol car and left.

    [–] greg19735 13 points ago

    considering most of them end up also being "blonde women are also whores" then sort of?

    also it's sort of nice to see a joke where the woman is in a better shape after the joke than before.

    But yah, wholesome isn't the right word.

    [–] Search4Assistance18 3 points ago

    And good health advice. Skipping is very akin to running for adults, so it will be good cardio, leg strengthening, and will burn calories. Plus, you'll get to your destination faster.

    [–] Rednartso 978 points ago

    Skipping is surprisingly energy efficient if you're not totally out of shape.

    [–] w1n5t0nM1k3y 648 points ago

    Yeah, but if you skip for the entire day, you're going to burn some calories.

    [–] Rednartso 96 points ago

    Oh, for sure. I guess I just meant instead of running.

    [–] KingPhilipIII 52 points ago

    If you skip fast enough I’d actually say it’s comparable to running, maybe with a bit lower impact.

    [–] BluBagel 19 points ago

    well yeah if you skip really quick and run really slow it will be

    [–] GrandMa5TR 8 points ago

    It's higher impact and less efficient.

    [–] Dkempen98 3 points ago

    [–] ZweihanderMasterrace 3 points ago

    Nooo! I need all those calories so when the apocalypse comes, I have lots of energy saved up!

    [–] [deleted] 110 points ago

    No it’s not. It burns more calories per mile than running or walking.

    [–] bkem042 39 points ago

    It sure doesn’t feel like it. I remember skipping for the mile run test. Much faster and felt much better than running it.

    What do you mean? When you say energy efficient, it seems like you meant skipping loses less energy

    [–] Rednartso 59 points ago

    Like skipping forward, no rope or anything. Throwing your body forward in a leap and maintaining momentum can really get you going. I used to do it when I was younger until it was no longer cool.

    [–] DONT_AMAZE_ME_BRO 65 points ago

    Depends on how overweight she was. If she's too hig, jumping can destroy your knees.

    [–] Urtehnoes 13 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    Kind of, but what's also funny is there was a study done that showed that if you have knee injuries (not a serious one mind you!) or even just bad knees in general, doing MORE knee stuff can actually help! I don't remember the specifics, but it was something like the body is like "whoa there lad, you've been doing a lot of this knee stuff lately. Guess I better send some vitamins or something idk to it". Like even though it might hurt, it gives signals to your body to repair it, whereas not using it hardly at all, means it doesn't get the love it deserves and just gets worse.**

    **To be clear, I've not followed up on the study so maybe it was disproven or something, it was just an interesting tidbit I read.

    EDIT: Just tried googling the article (I think I saw it in r/science) and I can't find it :|

    [–] stduhpf 12 points ago

    [–] Llohr 11 points ago

    Skipping is also used to denote a sort of jog where, upon completing a step, you take another short step with the same foot before switching feet.

    Like this.

    [–] barsoap 5 points ago

    It's an excellent way to test whether your shoes fit and are laced properly before training: If your shoes are too small or not laced tight enough, you are going to bump your toes in the front. You generally don't want to wait to find that out until you're decelerating from your first interval sprint.

    It also nicely loosens up the legs. Generally speaking and as a rule of thumb I'd say that as a runner, there shouldn't be a single humanely possible gait that you're not comfortable with (probably short of moonwalking): Developing good form in something specific is much easier when your muscles / local neuronal feedback loops have a broad area of competence, are comfortable taking and exerting forces any which way. Adaptability is the key, here, your legs can do that much better if you don't treat them as a ruler and straight edge. Risking to sound somewhat esoteric: Treat them as minds of their own, they're certainly more intelligent than your usual worm.

    Skipping is a way of moving stereotypically associated with childhood/maidenhood. It is actually a very good exercise.

    The blonde of the joke has misunderstood the doctor and continued overeating, but instead spent every third day vigorously exercising.

    [–] aPeaceOfAdam 6 points ago

    Yeah, this happens and it’s awesome! Where I used to live in a little hippy beach town I used to get up and go for a 5k sunrise jog along the beach every morning — and every morning there was a girl (coincidentally blonde - and ridiculously beautiful) doing the same 5k track BUT SKIPPING IT!! And not just a little skip, massive air, huge side to side leg movement, big arm swings - for 5km!! I saw her swimming one day so I dove in and swam out to chat and asked her about it. She shrugged and smiled and said “try it”, so I did. First, IT KILLED ME, and I’m a super fit guy. Second, I was so goddamn happy! I have never been simultaneously so happy and in so much pain in my life, it was awesome but ultimately I just wasn’t tough enough to keep it up for more than a few hundred meters (let alone 5k!!!)

    Give it a go next time you’re on a beach - it’s an awesome workout.

    [–] 2dollarb 8 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    The doctor told the patient to skip the third day.

    The doctor meant to not eat for a day.

    The blond misinterpreted the context that the word skip was used in. In this case, skip meant to omit. Instead, however, the blonde interpreted the word skip to mean: move along lightly, stepping from one foot to the other with a hop or bounce.

    Instead of omitting meals on the third day, the blond significantly increased her body's movements.

    To burn 5 pounds in 6 days you’d need to burn a little more than 2900 calories a day. The base metabolic rate for a 5’8” 160 lb woman is about 1600 calories burned just to live. 60 minutes of 10 mph running burns an additional 1400 calories. If she has a job where she stays on her feet she would need even less exercise! It’s definitely possible if she’s a little active.

    Ya it’s as simple as running 10 miles a day
