Brain Teaser, #2.

Using an empty 5-gallon jug and an empty 3-gallon jug, how can you measure exactly on gallon of fluid, without spilling, dripping, or losing any of it?

Fill the 3-gallon jug. Pour it all into the 5-gallon jug. There's now 3 gallons in the 5-gallon jug. Fill the 3-gallon jug again. Pour as much as will fit into the 5-gallon jug. There will be one gallon left in the 3-gallon jug.

Special thanks to Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson and Jeremy Irons.
