Actually, crossing at an intersection with the light is nuts. There are
cars coming at you from too many different directions. What you always
want to do to survive as a pedestrian is to jaywalk in the middle of the
block where cars are only trying to kill you in one direction at a time.
The heck with legality, survival is the rule here!

Now if I could only figure out how to make this analogy extend to
firewalls :-).
