I cannot think anywhere...Especially when on the road! Can you afford to think when you got a car coming for you?
I drive 50 miles nearly everyday to go to school or to work and that's when I think the most out of my day. Either there or in my bed. I like to let my mind wander and think about the most random things.
When I listen to music, something in my brain clicks and all of these creative ideas for music videos or movies start coming in.
Are you serious? You really can't think of ANYTHING else besides the movement in your legs while going for a jog of sorts, if so your full of it or something is wrong with you. It's not like your meditating during the run. I've been going for 6 km runs daily for last 5 plus years I think I know what I'm talking about.

I was not aware that one had to think about walking or running. Unless your legs suddenly change length, it's not something you need to think about. Indeed, the entire coordination of walking is something so complex that the human mind couldn't possibly work it out consciously.
My point, however, was that while in deep thought you don't necessarily pay attention to what's going on around you--time seems to pass without you knowing, people come and go without you noticing, etc...
