The benefits of an arthritic hip

On a recent trip to London and Paris, I discovered that there is an unexpected benefit to an arthritic hip. Being wheeled through airports in a wheelchair gets you where you're going much faster (and with a lot less pain), and allows you to jump lines at security, passport control, and customs.

I would not, however, recommend that you make an effort to develop the arthritic hip.
