Wanna spice up your commute? Try Parkour

What's the most efficient way to get around an urban area without a car? If you said Segway, it turns out you're wrong. (On a side note: if you participate in a Segway polo league, you should be sterilized)

If you believe the French...and who really can these days..It's Parkour.
What's Parkour you ask? Why, it's a recreational pursuit in which participants traverse urban structures by running, jumping, vaulting, rolling, etc. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about efficiency, but I don't see how vaulting and/or rolling over urban structures can make your trip more efficient. It's pretty cool, though, and you've probably seen Parkour in several commercials and movies.

Since every thing seems to be fair game for jumping off of or vaulting over, if you want to keep Parkour out of your neighborhood I would reccomend greasing up your car and building immediately.
