How to walk on ice

Normally when we walk, our legs' ability to support our weight is split mid-stride. Walking this way on ice forces each leg to support the weight of the body at an angle that is not perpendicular to the surface of the ice, resulting in a nasty fail.

To walk on ice, keep your center of gravity over your front leg. One animal that has figured this out is a penguin. Think of yourself as a penguin and you will be all right.
