One of the two best feelings a kid can have is that immediate king of the world, I’ve got this life thing all figured out of learning how to skip a stone across a body of water (the other is the freedom of learning of how to ride a bike, I think).

I mean. What. That’s unfathomable. How is that physically possible? What type of rock is it? What’s the salinity of the water? Can this be considered a superpower? Is this legal? Is there a special grip involved? How long do you have to practice to do this?
