i feel the need to ask this question because it bugs me everytime i see it done. in a movie, or on TV, when something is coming at you, or falling down, or whatever...why do people try to outrun it by going directly along the path? i mean, wouldn't it be a lot more sensical to go perpendicular to it? let me try to explain:

from a bird's eye view (x is the object/flood, o is the escaping person)

o o--->

person runs the same direction, person runs perpendicular to escape much faster
