Question and answer
HOW MIGHT A PERSON SITTING AT A REST ON A HORIZONTAL FRICTIONLESS SURFACE GET AL TOGETHER OFF IT?
One approach would be to throw something away, which by Newton's third law (or conservation of momentum) would propel you in the opposite direction. [ To give yourself the maximum reaction velocity, pick the heaviest item you have on your person and throw it away with as much speed as possible. When you eventually reach the edge, walk around and retrieve your thrown object. source: yahoo ]
