and when they say they solved 5 sides........
I thought everyone knew 5solved sides=6!!!
I mean thats how I tried to solve it!!!
I have one that may not have been mentioned thus far.
I was cubing in mcdonalds, a guy came over to me upon noticing. Evidently he also noticed my university top and invited me to join his club.
His club was a troupe of circus performers.
If people understood a little more about cubing then perhaps cubers wouldn't get treated like something absurd.
I agree with BOS. It's a thread where you can have a few laughs. Sure, the same things pop up frequently, but everybody is different and will react differently to a given situation. There's no harm in leaving it open IMO.
But then again, a lot of long running "fun" threads were closed last year. Nothing against the mods shutting this one down if enough people complain. I'm still pretty amazed that my competition thread has been allowed to stay open for as long as it has. I can imagine that it's a thorn in many peoples eyes.

I think it's nice when people try to talk to me about the cube, even if they know nothing
They usually find it amazing around here, and most often they say stuff like "OMG how is that even possible?! Your hands are moving so fast!"
Or the usual
"I could do that too" *takes cube and randomly moves sides or takes cube and spends whole class period trying, but doesn't finish* Or they take it for a moment and say they did it :P
A kind thing I do is give them a pattern
(like when it's a checker pattern, since that's easier for a mind not familiar with the cube to grasp than the, "just different centers" pattern)
and have them try and solve it, it's so funny, and sorta nice to see how happy they get just when they undo that; one girl after undo-ing the pattern even screamed and class was about to start xD

Its hard to explain the difference of a Rubiks and a Dayan to a non-cuber.
