djseanmac: Why didn't they put it on the center of the page, where the swipes wouldn't get caught up with the address bar? I guess if you memorized the dozen keyboard shortcuts, this might be more enjoyable. This is one of their lesser interactive doodles, for sure.
uttertosh: The girl I'm with happily gives me a sparkling political debate, absentmindedly solving rubics cubes the whole time, asking me to mess up the one she just solved while she solves the one I just messed up. She says it helps her keep focused on the debate. It turns me on so farking much. Totally was the hottest thing she could have done on our first 'date'.
MindStalkerYeah, this the controls were truly terrible. I was hoping for something fun. :(

tbaughm: Nope. Still can't do it.
Honest Bender: AbiNormal: [i.chzbgr.com image 463x494]You may be interested to know that such a formation is impossible.You'd have to crack open the cube to get it to look like that.*adjusts nerd hat*
tripleseven: To get it to look like that it would require re-applying some stickers.
Honest Bender: tripleseven: To get it to look like that it would require re-applying some stickers.Oh, ha!I didn't notice the yellow face was still solved.I thought the corner piece was just twisted. :-)
timharrod: *collapses under crushing weight of nerd hat*
sendtodave: I solved a Rubik's cube once when I was a kid.I figure it was dumb luck.Then I try to imagine the odds of solving a Rubik's cube by dumb luck.

Mateorocks: Preferred the Rubik's Magic, though I don't recall the specific goal. Wish I hadn't lost it all those years ago.[upload.wikimedia.org image 600x327]
Cobere: I used to be able to solve it in sub-minute time, regularly. 24 seconds was my best. I played around with the google app and couldn't remember the mid patterns, the ones to orient and align the bottom corners. If I had it in my hand, might be able to do it, but not this klugey app.
moike: Back in the 80's I had a friend that had one of these...[2.bp.blogspot.com image 400x400]And I remember fiddling with it at random while we were watchingTV, not even really paying attention. He said, "Hey, you got it!"and I looked down, sure enough I'd solved the damn thing with randomtwists and turns. I had to turn it over and look at all the sides afew times before I'd convinced myself I'd actually solved it.I think it's the only rubik puzzle I solved that didn't require cheatingwith hand tools.
