    Place 6 glasses of water in a row.
    Fill the 3 glasses on the left with water
    The 3 glasses on the right remain empty
    By touching just 1 glass, change the sequence of glasses from 3 full and 3 empty to alternate between full and empty, so that glasses 1,3 and 5 are full and glasses 2, 4 and 6 are empty.
    Remember, you cannot touch more than 1 glass!

      Edit: Oh, haha. It's a different thread. I thought it was the same thread and my answer had been removed.

      Pour the water from the middle left glass into the middle right glass.
      That was hard.
