Black Ice - Why So Slippery?

I'm just a little crazy. No wonder I developed a Science site I call QuirkyScience.

Well one of my original ideas (presuming there is no one else out there quite so loony) has to do with the slipperiness of ice. Of course black ice is just the worst! So what makes it so slippery? Scientists (get ready for this - drum roll)... well they just don't know! They have ideas. But they once had this idea that the world was flat...

Well I cover a few of those in my brief article, then I give my own crazy idea, which just may not be all that crazy. Please check it out and see what you think? What is your verdict? Have I hit the nail on the head?
