How to stay slightly drier in the rain

Despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of Brown students are “very happy” with their decision to be here, we highly doubt many would rave about the weather.  We here at BlogDH understand that April showers are supposed to bring May flowers, but this is getting ridiculous.  Since there is little to no chance that Providence weather will ever improve, we figured we would share a few pointers from an MIT professor on how to avoid getting drenched if you don’t have an umbrella.  Bottom line — if you move faster and lean your body forward, you actually have a better chance of staying dry.  To see the physics behind this phenomenon, watch the oddly fascinating 18-minute lecture after the jump.
