He should have used 'Never going to give you up' instead for the Rick Rolling win.

You don't actually "solve" a Rubik's cube. You apply an algorithm to re-set it.

I was always taught not to "geek and drive".

Can I has algorithm?

BGates: My best is 2 minutes.

I usually go about the same, but I usually have more fun trying to figure out what repeating moves will generate interesting patterns.

You mean to tell me your not supposed to peel off the stickers and put them all together again?
I could do that in under a min:P

Of course they pick a long light.

I did it at a stop sign once. I'll never forget the symphony of horns i heard that day.

Why?

I used to do this when I was first learning how to solve it, or "re-set it" as oldebayer puts it. My best time so far 01'27".

I tried to understand the Petrus and Fridrich methods but became disinterested when I learned that they're more intuitive methods than algorithm-based.

Fast-forward to about 25 seconds into this video to see some great single-finger motions and sounds:

It might take a bit to learn Fridrich and Petrus...but they are definitely the best methods for speedcubing. The guy in the video used Fridrich's.

How is this a challenge? Those things are red forever.

i hate these videos. it always feels like its a new or solved cube thats just been mixed up.

I want to see someone do this with a cube that hasen't been solved in 5 years after dozens of people have farked around with it

That would not make a difference at all. The cube can only be so "messed up."

I seem to remember that someone has calculated the maximum number of turns that it takes to "reset" a cube from any given starting point.

/i can solve using the algorithm method. I just wrote down a series of moves and wrote down what each did to the cube. I then looked at a mixed up cube and figured out which move i needed next. I then memorized the moves and could at one point solve in under a minute.

// Did it when i was 12!

So true.

It was 24 I think...maybe 27. But under 30 for sure.

Daddakamabb Can I has algorithm?

Only if you buy me dinner first.

While I was never able to solve one myself, I'd be more impressed if kids weren't solving these behind their backs while blindfolded in 30 seconds or less.

Americans have always had a propensity for electing ex-military types. If you notice, though, we've slid from electing Generals with proven leadership capability to electing lower-ranking grunts with inspiring stories of heroism which are completely unrelated to being a good elected official.

It's indicative of the overall slide into the politics of personality. It's been going on for decades, and all 3 remaining major party candidates are equally guilty of fostering and benefiting from it.

... four hours later: HAVE YOU SOLVED IT YET???

uh not quite yet honey. You just keep sucking. I'll have this thing "reset" any minute now.

A video response proving that he can solve the cube for anybody that didn't believe him.
