    The ones above are made with only straight line segments; the ones below have at least one curved segment.

    I got that, but l also want to point out that the ones above the line are above the ones that are below the line.

    pretty sure its impossible...only tried it twice though...but if you add all their speeds together, you get thirty, which is the amount, you can only bring 2 people across each time, and each time one guy has to come back...i might be wrong though...i only tried it a few times....and by the way what site is this?

    It _is_ possible. Keep trying (if you can put up with using the awful interface...)

    Tried and got it as well. You have to start with the 1 and 3 minute guys (27), let the 1 go back (26),

    then make the 12 and 8 go (14), the 3 go back (11),

    make the 6 and 1 go (5), the 1 go back (4)

    and then 3 and 1 go again (1 minute of lamplight left)


    Maybe there's more possibilities but it's how I did it.
