Random Thought of the Day

If you have one bucket that holds 2 gallons, and you have another bucket that holds 5 gallons, how many buckets do you have?

When you talk about anything I always refer to Bruce Willis. I have a Bracelet that has "WWBD" What Would Bruce Do. Here is the Bucket problem Bruce and Sam Jackson had.

On the fountain's edge there was an empty 3 gallon bucket and an empty 5 gallon bucket.

The message on the bomb said that the only way to diffuse it was to place EXACTLY 4 gallons of water on the pressure sensitive pad attached to the bomb's arming mechanism. They only had 2 minutes to figure out how to do this or the bomb would explode.

Can you figure out in two minutes how they did it with just the two buckets?
