think you're pretty smart, do you?

try this on for size. this puzzle is something my daughter found and initially it drove me nuts - wasted a bunch of time trying to figure it out.

warning: don't even start trying to work this puzzle if you don't have some free time - it's addictive until you resolve it.

tip: tori has posted some tips here if you need a kickstart.

japanese i.q. test (once you're at the puzzle page, click on the big blue circle to start it)

now how smart do you feel?

The IT nazis here have blocked tons of sites for "security" reasons and apparently this game must be a threat to that "security"...lol...so unfortunately I can't waste any time giving it a shot ;)

close, ryan. missed by 3. the real answer is 3,376,228.

no, wait - that's what you put. i guess you are right! dang!

brad - i had no doubt you'd be all over this one. it's not much different than what you do every day on the job.

Brad transports groups of people (that are paranoid of each other) across bodies of water 2 at a time? Wow...HPC is an intense place to work.
