RUNNING VS WALKING IN THE RAIN
It has been said that a person would be less wet if they ran in the rain versus if they walked that same distance. Fact of the matter is that itís the opposite. A person who runs will be wetter than if they walked that same distance. It seems counterintuitive, but the MythBusters TV show put this to the test. Here is a link to that experiment. From now on, Iíll be strolling in the rain while others will think me crazy, but Iíll be drier than them. http://www.discovery.com/tv-shows/mythbusters/videos/running-in-the-rain-minimyth.htm
