World explorer Stan the Man is on a dangerous adventure in the jungle. Suddenly an extremely poisonous snake bites him. Luckily, he has his medicines with him against this deadly snake poison: two bottles, labeled A and B, containing three pills each. Exactly three times, with an interval of 2 hours, he needs to swallow simultaneously both a pill A and a pill B. In a rush, he takes a pill from bottle A and then shakes a pill from bottle B with it... However, unfortunately two pills B fall from the bottle and they look completely identical to pill A. He cannot tell which pill was A and which two are B pills... Stan is desperate: if he does not take the pills exactly as prescribed, it will be fatal.
