Yet another important chapter of life is made of small things that we, sometimes, ignore.

Hint: This is not an optical illusion. If you print out the puzzle, cut out the pieces and rearrange them, you get the exact same dilemma. Answer: The gradient of the teal hypotenuse is different than the gradient of the red hypotenuse.
2. Four Gallons You have a three gallon and a five gallon measuring device. You wish to measure out four gallons.


Answer: Fill the five gallon container. Pour all but two gallons into the three gallon container. Empty the three gallon container.

Pour one gallon from the five gallon container by filling the three gallon container. Now the five gallon container contains four gallons. 3. The Islanders There are two beautiful yet remote islands in the south pac…
