    And hey, if you want, you could actually try it...
    I calculated it, and it would take over 4 days of nonstop cubing for even one of the fastest cubers to do this many solves and scrambles. Hahah... I wonder if anyone would ever actually attempt?
    Cubes, yeah, they're cube-shaped.

    joke aside
    you wouldn't improve because you would get tired after 1000 solves and you would start to hate the cube :P
    avg of 50-100 a day is sufficient to improve!

    Good luck to all participants! Gaining enough spare time would have to be the most difficult challenge. Whoever completes all the scrambles within a week deserves a clap.

    One with a 10.58 solving average and a 4.79 scrambling average, for example, would spend 47.900 seconds scrambling the cube 10.000 times, and spend 105.800 seconds solving the cube.

    That's a total of 153.700 seconds to scramble and solve the cube 10.000 times. That is 2.561 minutes and 40 seconds, or 42 hours, 41 minutes and 40 seconds. That means one should solve approximately 6 hours and 6 minutes a day, so it is certainly not impossible.

    One could split the 6 hours in an attempt to make it less boring. One could cube 2 hours and 2 minutes from 8 am till 10:02 am, from 2 pm till 4:02 pm, and from 8 pm till 10:02 pm, for an entire week, and solve 10.000 cubes.

    Piece of cake.

    That's just for one who has a 10.58 average... *sigh*
