Rubik's Cubes!!!!

Boys and girls, I'm a geek, and you should know this by now.

And what kind of geek would I be without being able to solve a Rubik's Cube? This puzzle was created in 1979 by some German Guy (Russian?) and it has frustrated millions. However, all it takes is some quick thinking and few patterns to solve this badboy.

Now, I'm not going to teach you how to solve a Rubik's Cube. If you want to do that, go to youtube. I am merely hear today asking if any of my viewers can do it and how fast they can. Now, many critics say, "Oh you just follow a few magic patterns and you can solve it, it's easy." And to those I say, "shut the hell up." Yes, yes it is true that just a few patterns will yeild a solved about 10-15 minutes. If you want to be talented, you truly need to think and move your hands fast to get to something below 3:00.

My personal record is 1:36.4, and it's only been about 3 weeks since I started solving the cube. In fact, the time I just told you was recorded about an hour ago. Since I'm still improving, I can solve faster and faster. However, in a few more records, it will be near impossible to solve any faster. To do so, requires even harder thinking.

So anyway, comment on this article, exclaiming your views, your times, your age, anyting.

Oh and PS - That pic was taken with my new LG Dare, pretty sharp camera, huh?
