    I think Myth Busters also did an experiment to determine which would get you less wet while in the rain, running or walking. I don’t remember which episode, and don’t remember the results, but I remembered that when I saw that minutephysics video you posted here.

    @criticaldragon1177: I remember that episode. I can’t be sure, but I seem to remember something about the amount of water you kick up and spalt on yourself while running had a negative impact on the whole “running keeps you drier” thing.

    @Brian G

    I seem to remember that too, now that you mention it.
