The Die Hard Water Riddle Explained by a Unicorn by PixelKitties The Die Hard Water Riddle Explained by a Unicorn by PixelKitties
Tonight we'll be watching Die Hard With A Vengeance, aka Die Hard 3 in the stream. In honor of the occasion, here's a quick synopsis of the water jug test that villain Simon forces our heroes to solve under threat of exploding.

When I was a kid and I first saw Die Hard 3, I was frustrated by my pea-brains inability to suss out how exactly this things worked. Only as a grown up with a velociraptor sized brain did the answer finally sink in.

Thanks a million to :iconevilbob0: for the chalkboard vector!

Shouldn't you just pour one gallon out of the five gallon jug?

Meanwhile the bomb goes off while you're dicking around with the jugs and dozens of ponies are killed.  Several more are injured, and the mangled corpses and severed limbs leave an entire city horrifically traumatized, ultimately culminated in one pony going completely insane, taking up drinking blood and summoning the Wendigos again, ending in the Equan's extinction.  All because you didn't just telekinetically pull the green wire.

Raven: Which would've set off the bomb anyways, and you should've cut the red wire instead.

There's an alternative solution to this problem:
-Fill the 3 gallon jar and pour it into the 5 gallon jar.
-Fill the 3 gallon jar again and pour 2 gallons into the remaining 5 gallon jar space.
-You have one gallon in the 3 gallon jar now. Empty the 5 gallon jar.
-Pour that one gallon into the 5 gallon jar. Refill the 3 gallon jar.
-Pour all three gallons from the 3 gallon jar into the 5 gallon jar, adding them to the one gallon that's already there.
-You have 4 gallons in the 5 gallon jar.

I keep trying to remember the answer. I figure it out every time, but I forget how to do it every time... But now, with Twilight Sparkle's demonstration, I will never forget! Thank you science!

I feel inadequate as a student in Calculus III not being able to solve this.
