    Rubiks cube

    I was just wondering how many of you people can actually solve one, and if you can what is you best time.

    Yeah it is pretty fun once you know how. I just got 1 minute 9 seconds, but I really want to be under a minute.
    So far 2 people can do it.

    you can learn how on youtube. The hardest part is memerising the algorithms, you'll find out what they are if you learn how to do one.

    Well so would I, but you can't exactly drive your car when ever, plus they are two completely different things. Plus nitro is loud. If you could solve one, you would think different about rubiks cubes. They are addicting.

    Nah, electrics are not much fun. I like to just keep running and running while you guys with electrics have to charge your batteries. Haha

    I have a question for all of you Rubiks Cube people out there. Once you solve it, what do you do? Since you said there is an algorithm, that probably means that all cubes must start at the same place.

    You know you can actually make an unsolvable cube like that. Certain sides have to be across from each other in order for the cube to be solved. I learned that while I was researching how to solve the cube in under 100 moves.

    It can be done, every time too.

    It takes me about 3 minutes to solve one, less than 1 for the 2x2, instead of taking all that time peeling stickers, you should just take it apart, and while it's apart lube it up so it moves smoothly, and for the question about what I do after it is solved, I usually make a checker board pattern
    My sig is way extra more better than yours!

    I have never tried to solve a rubiks cube and have no interest in trying. I like to get away from math and physics when I am not at work.

    I saw today that they have a 5x5 cube. I can only do one side on the 3x3. My braind would explode and ooze out of my ears with the 5x5.

    What is the trick to solving one?

    you can go on youtube there are tutorial things that explain it. all my friends were obsessed with them for a while. they would do them in every class... ugh it got so annoying i never even tried one.

    They make 8 by 8s just to let you guys know who think that 3 by 3 is a lot. When you are solving a 3 by 3 it can be set up in any order, it is just you have to change the order before solving sides. Look it up and see what I mean. You solve it the same way each time, it is just sometimes you will have to do an algorithm a couple of times to get it right.

    My best is 1:40. I bring it on trips and solve it while the auto-pilot flies the plane. Thats minutes not hours.

    Hey EmotiV if you want to learn how to solve one click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsQIoPyfQzM

    There is another part two of it right here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IW_BB...eature=channel

    It helps to write down the algorithms so you don't have to constantly look at the video. Try it. It will be very rewarding the first time you solve it and it is not that hard.

    Oh. I got a new best 1 minute and 4 seconds

    Whoopie, more sticker to pull off and re-arrange for me!!!! j/k

    No offense, but I solve problems for a living (Network Administrator)..... Like I'm going to enjoy solving another problem involving logic....

    my record is 53 seconds
    and i build the cube from there diy kit you can ajust the "tightness" thatway and you gota lube it right its not so hard getting below the 50 second thing gets hard because now i use a 7 algorythm solve but beyond that i need like 50-100

    My shortest solve wasin about 30 seconds, but I average right around a minut. If you want a challange, get a 4x4

    3 minutes for me. I actually memorized the hundreds of moves to slove it one layer at a time.

    What do you mean by actually solving it one layer at a time and the 7 algorithm solve.
