Hmm...I'm surprised no one said: take off a large article of clothing (such
as a jacket, shirt etc.), place it on the surface, walk on it for a step or
two, pick it back up and do it again until you are free. (Of course, no
one knows if there *is* an end to the frictionless may just be
an exercise in futility...)
