Awarded to Lianne Parkin and her team at the University of Otago in New Zealand for demonstrating that people are less likely to slip over on icy footpaths if they wear their socks outside their shoes instead of inside.

The green slime is so slippery that it's very difficult to ride over without falling, especially in times of swift water conditions. If you take your shoes off but leave your socks on, you have plenty of traction. Bizarre.
