A sociological experiment

Have you ever tried to walk down a fairly crowded sidewalk, or maybe right outside of a ballpark after the game just ended, without doing any maneuvers to get out of other people's way as they're walking in the opposite direction? If not, try it some time. Just maintain a straight line in the direction you're headed. No turning or ducking to the side to avoid hitting someone. I promise you'll run into a bunch of people who are already doing that very thing subconsciously. Do it as a sociological experiment. Try to figure out who's doing the ducking and who's doing the straight beeline walk. Then when you hit someone, tell that person to quit being so selfish.
