• If the drops were to be hitting you horizontally, how the hell would you get water on your sides when moving forward, standing at a 90 degree angle? The drops have to be hitting youï»¿ diagonally, or you wouldn't get wet on your sides.

• It takes a physicist two minutes to quicklyï»¿ explain what is blindingly obvious to any normal person. :(

• No I'm not. You just don't get what I'm saying.ï»¿ At 1:08 the drops are hitting the stickman at around a 45 degree angle. You can clearly see that the marked "hitbox" or whatever is at a 45 degree angle. That's what I'm talking about. Now imagine that you were to rotate that guy at the same angle as that "hitbox's" angle. Then the surface area for the waterdrops hitting the stickman will be smaller and the "hitbox" will be narrower and overall have a smaller area. Now do you get what I mean?

• Read the annotation. It says Mythbusters tried this againï»¿ and proved it to be better indeed to run.

• That'sï»¿ pretty dumb, no offence.

• What I was referring to was that if you stand still,ï»¿ the water will only hit your head, but if you move, the water will hit your sides as well. And for the water to hit your sides, it has to be "travelling diagonally". Not saying that the drops themselves travel diagonally, but that they will be hitting you at an angle.

• You're confused.ï»¿

• I've walked around in the rain for a relatively long period of time and though most of my body was soaked, my ass was -ï»¿ I'm not exaggerating - entirely dry.

• remember, the world has 3 dimensions...you will never remain dry on the sides, no matter how fast you run, because you are running horizontally. The point of contact is stretched with each drop. the drop hits you, but since it must change direction suddenly, it must stop at a point, and transition to the direction of which more force is moving.ï»¿ Therefore, you will be wet on all sides. done.

• Running in the rain increasesï»¿ the risk of accident. Walking is safer.
