    OK my friend told me this random question and it was very interesting:

    If you were being chase by dogs and you were running to your car and the window was open.

    would you: Jump in head first or Jump in legs first???

    and Why????

    I would think this is a no brainer (but you never know)... Given the two options, I would jump in head first of course. As you are approaching the vehicle you could dive through the open window whereas a 'Dukes of Hazard' move would slow you down. Also, you could kick at the dogs as opposed to your exposed head being kibble.

    Yes, having dogs bite at your feet will not be as bad as them biting your face off. Head first definitely.

    Neither. I would yell "Sit !" very loudly to make them all
    sit and then I would casually get into my car and drive off.

    Usain Bolt would probably outrun them, get a big lead and then
    showboat the last 20 yards to his car.

    Well the smart choice would be head first, but the easier thing to do is feet first.

    I would go head first, but would probably hurt my knees in the process depending on how deep into the car I get.

    Depending on the size of the dogs, they might be able to jump on your car too and bite your face off. If they are that big, remember, even Batman is scared of them!

    That could happen too if you don't run fast enough and then you'd be stuck with a bunch of angry dogs that.

    If I was jumping into a car at full speed, personally I'd go head first. The one thing I don't happening is jumping feet first then getting my "you know what" smashed between my legs by the gear shift. That certainly wouldn't make my day.

    Well...
    If the window is open large enough for an adult to fit through, chances are that the door is unlocked.
    That being the case, I would open the door and get in the car, which would get me into the car more quickly than would jumping through the window either way.

    Even if the car door is locked (which is not likely if the window is wide open), I would unlock it and get in through the door - and still get in faster than through the window.

    Head first preferably. But if a human can jump through the window, what's preventing the dog from following?

    I actually LOLed when I read that comment, I can picture that. He'd thump his chest a few times and take off.

    Ah, the voice of reason ;) You're spoiling our game, Deuce. In real life I think i'd do the same...


    This was my thought. If i had to choose one or the other, I'd go legs first so I'm not completely clueless as to what is going on with the dogs, especially if I'd need to fnd them off. I'm a pretty small dude, though, so I don't think I'd be completely disoriented when jumping in, either. If it's a big enough dog to be afraid of, I think it would be able to jump in after me (and mess up my back side in the process). I would prefer to have the ability to fight it off.

    No scratch that, I would not jump into the car thru the window because I would miss. Cmon, I'm not a Duke of Hazzard.

    Make like Arnold in True Lies, and turn around when the dogs are chasing you, and as they jump at you, smash their heads together, knocking them out.

    I would go feet. One, because of the cool factor of the dukes of hazard effect. And most importantly I would go feet first because its easier to gain your bearing and get situated to drive off or roll the window up faster that a head first move.

    If you dive head first you gotta turn your body around to get situated on the seat giving the pursuers extra time to jump in the vehicle as well.

    i'd jump leg first so i can drive outta there quick. if i jump head first the dogs could just get up after i kick them and jump through the window. leg first is faster in the long run.
