Here's a little  brain exercise for you.  Enjoy!!  Please read instruction 
before  you begin.  
This is a tough  one. This is an IQ tester. The object of the game is to
get everyone across  the river. This is a test some Japanese
applicants have to take when applying  for a job in Japan. The odd
thing to me is, once you begin taking people  across the river, you can't
remember how you got them there when you have to  start again. Someone
sent this to me, and she crossed the river after trying  so many times.
Once you begin this test, it's hard to stop. You feel so  determined to
get these people across. The instructions are listed  below. After
reading, click on the link. Enjoy!

Click on link, and  then click on the big blue circle. Use the rules below.

To start click on the big blue circle on the  right.

be unemployable in  Japan! lol!
