Is it better to walk or run in the rain?

Just like Alice, I’m wildly curious. A simple question or cooking conundrum or news report can send me deep into that rabbit hole of endless facts and fallacy — the internet. Just the other day, it was raining cats and dogs. The kind of rain that fills the streets up in seconds and sends poor cyclists and pedestrians for cover. My son and I were watching these wet passerbys from our living room window and I wondered, Is it better to walk or run in the rain? Is there a better choice when trying to stay as dry as possible?

And the internet answered with this wonderful discovery: Minute Physics videos on Youtube. Short bursts of educational and enthusiastic answers to basic science-related questions. Like, the down-low on parallel universes, Is there poop on the moon?, Why it’s dark at night, and the difference between immovable objects and unstoppable forces.

I also found the answer on my rain conundrum. If you’re trying to get somewhere, run as fast as you can. : )
