Trading places; Mexico and Greenland swap place in the Mercator Projection.
This is fucked up
Map to illustrate the true size of countries

Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
AHEM THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO NEED THIS YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE
Tell your daughters that coming home from a failed marriage is better than living an unhappy life.

2) Put two of the potential pills on each side of the scale. The heavier side has the poison pill.

1) Weigh 6 of them, 3 on each side
2a) If both sides are equal, weigh the 2 you didn’t use before.
2b) If one side was heavier, pick 2 of the 3 and weigh them. Heavier one is poisoned. If they’re even, it’s the 3rd.

Fun fact, an Arc Flash burns hot enough and bright enough that without proper protection you will not only catch fire but the fat under your skin will begin to burn similar to a grease fire. The initial burn torches your nerve endings meaning you won’t feel as much pain as you think you would while your skin burns off.
That is not a fun fact
