    LOL,well I guess I'm lucky then.Most of my friends from school do know the difference between good and bad cubes and brands.I just say like: This is Dayan,Alpha-V,F-II,...it turns fast,has great corner cutting,way better than Rubik's and stuff like that and my friends seem to get it all.

    Same here nearly everyone in my class can solve the cube. I once started it and now loads of people of my school are walking around with a cube xD (not only in my class) But i'm still the fastest
    I love this forum :3 3x3 PBs: [7.13 single] [12.677 oh single] stats and PBs

    Since it's showing up around the web, a whole host of kind folks on various non-cubing websites have been nice enough to explain that Marcell Endrey's 28.80 blindfold record is actually stupid, because there's an algorithm you can do that solves the cube no matter what its initial state is, so the blindfold doesn't even matter. Thanks for clearing that one up, guys!

    Totally. You'd still have to know when to stop though.

    Yes.

    I was talking with some kids about cubing in school today. The topic of learning how to solve the cube came up, and people said they didn't have the patience or time to learn. I told them that it really only takes a few hours to get a beginner's method down. Then this one kid says:
    "I once looked up how to solve a cube, but there's like a ton of logarithms that you have to learn!"
    —No wonder why people think it takes math to solve a cube

    Wow, logarithms. There is quite a lot of math behind the Rubik's cube but non-cubers don't understand that you do not need any of that math to actually solve the cube.

    One of my friends was messing around with my cube, and asked if I could solve it from where it was. I told him that I can solve it from every position. His quote, "How many positions can you peel the stickers off from?"
