There one was a guy name Unflux. He was carrying three three pound balls when ha came to a bridge. The bridge had a sign that clearly stated:
Weight limit: 190 pounds.

Unflux sighed, it was necissary for him to cross the bridge and because he weighed 183 pounds it seemed impossible. The three pound balls were rigged with an explosive charge that would go off when they touch the ground. However Unflux, being a brilliant web designer comes up with a plan, and makes it safely accross the bridge, with all three balls. How did he do it?

Well if he weighs 183, and he has three, 3 pound balls, that would put the total weight to 189, so he isn't over limit.

Okay this is how he did it. He took a running start and threw one of the balls really high up in the air so that it would land on the other side of the bridge. He then sprinted with the other two balls and arrived to the other end and caught the ball once he was over the bridge.

If you did that the one you left behind would have blown up as soon as you set it down.
