Let this stock footage penguin show you how it's done.

Are your sidewalks coated over with ice? Sure, falling can be very comical to both the tumbler and the spectator—it's one of life's greatest gags—but let's say you don't want to fall. After all, approximately 60 people a year die from falling on ice in the U.S. So before you take another step, check out this helpful visual, which instructs you to walk like a penguin: "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'll be alright."
