# Thread: Random Cubing Discussion

1. Yes, the whole idea is that faster cubers don't have an advantage. Most cubers never have a hope in hells chance I winning anything, but something like this would be fun for everyone. Kinda like the Magic, makes people think they are good at something. Yes finishing too soon would be a DNF, but that's the risk you have to take.

2. It also wouldn't have to be ao5, it could be a head to head competition.

In what way would this be different from any of the move-optimal solvers that already exist? It is really not that difficult to find optimal solutions in regular inspection.

4. Justin Bieber gets a 55 sec average: PB!!!
I get a 55 sec average: what is wrong with me?!?!?!
Feliks Zemdegs gets a 55 sec average: *sighs with relief* just a nightmare.

my lingyun popped today, now i cant find the edge!!!

5. Hm... What kind of cube-pranks do you know? For example, I just found a way how to play a trick on a non-cuber (or not-so-experienced cuber):

Perform this on a solved 4x4: u2 M2 Uw2 M2 U2 M
Cuber: "If you can solve this for me in a few seconds, I pay you a beer!"
Non-cuber: "Yeah, free beer!" (Get the cube) "Wait, what?" (Doing R L R' L2 R etc.)

Another prank (whick I actually use... occasionally... sorry) is the next one:

Cuber: "If I scramble the cube with only ONE move, can you undo it?"
Non-cuber: "Sure!"
Cuber: (Execute R'UR' or a similar fingertrick - it is one move after all... even in its sound) "Your turn."
Cuber: (Do the inverse with the same speed)

Swap two adjacent faces.

Assemble a ball core 4x4 without the sphere on the inside. Leave it on a table at work/school. Make the first person who touches it feel really guilty as you walk in and pretend to be furious.

Also, you can do the same thing with 3x3, with one turn from solved. This even makes noncubers tempted...

8. Do R'U2RUR'zR2UR'DR (J perm without the last move)

Put your thumb over the FDR sticker and cover the BRD and BR stickers with your fingers to hide the J perm
I now looks like it needs only one move to be solved lol

I do this all the time lol

9. Twist a corner then scramble, watch a sexy method user mess up at the very end...

10. 1. Scramble a sq-1 with / 6,6 / 2,-2.
2. Hand it to them so they see F and R faces (or B and L).
3. Enjoy.
