Staying dry in the rain
Today, when I started driving to church, it began to rain. Just a light sprinkle here and there.
After parking the car, I figured, we could make it in without getting really wet. No need for an umbrella.
Unfortunately, it started to really rain. Harder and harder. Quickly, it became a downpour.
People were frantically running to get away from the rain.
As I was about to run, my friend stopped me. He said the funny thing is, people think the faster they run, the dryer they’ll stay. When the opposite is true.
If you run in the rain, fewer raindrops hit your head, so the top of your head stays drier. This is true.
However, if you run in the rain, more raindrops will hit your entire body. Your entire body will get soaked.
Though this seems counter-intuitive, it’s true as well.
What other conventions are counter-intuitive but true?
The answer just might be the key to keeping you dry and comfy.
Thanks for caring!
