How can Stan survive?

+1 vote
637 views

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.

You die and the devil says he'll let you go to heaven if you beat him in a game. The devil sits you down at a perfectly round table. He gives himself and you an infinite pile of quarters. He says, "OK, we'll take turns putting one quarter down, no overlapping allowed, and the quarters must rest flat on the table surface. The first guy who can't put a quarter down loses." You guys are about to start playing, and the devil says that he'll go first. However, at this point you immediately interject, and ask if you can go first instead. You make this interjection because you are very smart and can place quarters perfectly, and you know that if you go first, you can guarantee victory.
Explain how you can guarantee victory.
