    Funny Japanese Brainteaser

    http://freeweb.siol.net/danej/riverIQGame.swf

    LOL Im usually pretty good at these but this one frustrated the hell out of me and took me about 15 minutes to complete. Give it a try.


    Click on the big blue circle to begin. The rules are:

    1. The objective is to get everybody across the river.
    2. Only 2 persons on the raft at a time.
    3. The father can not stay with any of the daughters without their mother's
    presence.
    4. The mother can not stay with any of the sons without their father's
    presence.
    5. The criminal can't stay with any family member without the policeman's presence.
    6. Only the Father, the Mother and the Policeman know how to operate
    the raft.
    7. To move the people click on them. To move the raft click on the handle.

    That wasn't too hard and I suck at those kind of things. I like their little dance at the end.

    lol, typical Japanese randomness. Took me about 7 or 8 minutes.

    People wonder why I call myself Mr. T. One dude asked, 'does the T stand for tough?' I said no. Another dude asked if the T stands for my last name, Tureaud. No it does not. The 'T' in Mr. T stands for tuna. T loves tuna.

    yeh, the trick is leaving the prisoner by himself to allow the cop to move a kid and moving the mom and dad together some of the time.

    So what's the answer...I think that legs routine today took all the energy out of my brain...lol

    You can PM it if you'd like. Or is the answer on the site? I couldn't find it.

    dammit, took me forever to figure it out
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    I really hate you people. Once I get these things I have to figure them out. Took me about 9 min.

    This is such a niggling thing, but if the language in which the instructions are written is any indication of the brainteaser's origin, the flash is not Japanese, but Chinese. It's a small thing to bring up, I know, and I probably should not have brought it up at all, but you know how it is when a thing catches your attention and you cannot uncatch that thing that caught your attention—purge it—until you say it out loud...even if it makes you feel like a snotty-nosed know-it-all for saying it.
