Put your thinking caps on and try to solve this puzzle:

On a piece of paper draw a 3x4 grid. 3 being the number of rows and 4 being the number of columns. Blacken out the four corners so the resulting grid has from left to right: 1 box, 3 boxes, 3 boxes, 1 box.

Similar to this:

---- ----
* * *
---- ---- ---- ----
* * * * *
---- ---- ---- ----
* * *
---- ----

Now put the number 1-8 in the boxes, using each number only once, and do so in a way that no consecutive numbers are touching each other horizontally, verically or diagonally. For example, if I put the number 5 in the far left box then the numbers 6 and 4 can not be in any of the 3 boxes in the second column. Good luck and enjoy!
