Looks like touch2solution.gif shows 7 matchsticks (pencils). Pretty impressive.
If you look closely at the Touch2Solution you will see that the "RED" and the "LIGHT BLUE" match are "NOT TOUCHING"! The Thickness or mass of the "DARK BLUE" match is seperating them from touching. It may Appear that they are in contact from an ariel view, however it is obvious that anything with mass is going to seperate 2 objects if it is between them.
Tell me what you think about my findings. I'm open for debate!
it is touching... u just need 2 look at it closly
