    Impossible puzzle

    My friend showed me a puzzle and im pretty sure its impossible. Here it is.

    There are 3 things, heat(H), water(W), and electricity(E).
    There are also three houses, and the pipes/wires must get to each one w/o crossing paths. Draw a line for the pipe/wire.

    ....... H..........W...........E

    Easy peasy. Just draw some of the lines outside the "box".

    EDIT: This puzzle looked a lot easier in my head.

    Yep, it's impossible. I've just seen mathematical proof this puzzle is impossible in 2D space (apart from a cheating way to send the wires through other people's houses):

    I remember seeing a similar puzzle in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. I am not sure if it follows the same principle here, but I am sure that it is possible.
