    I'll only alter this to my own satisfaction, since skating is a case of
    learned cultural behavior, and say, someone may show you (or you might
    simply observe) that they can skate, but, you may have to work at it for
    a while before you can skate yourself.

    We are born with the ability to learn such.

    And perhaps, during the child development stage when we fulfill the
    ability to walk, if everyone around us were skating, we'd be skating too.
    And then, we might see someone walking, and have to try that. Like a
    second language.
