Simple addition ... irrelevant to cubing me thinks

3. i solve the second block by making an edge then two pairs (f2l)

helps

not really. in fact it doesn't help. it prevents you from learning new and efficient ways of doing blocks.

5. my time splits: 14-3-5

what should I improve? LOLOL

first block feels kinda awkward to me, dunno why exactly, and my 2nd block look-ahead, simply, it exist does not.

Btw, I picked naming-cubes-thngy from waffle and now I play with my Fedora all the time.

EDIT: I hate when bottom color of one corner from second block faces up, it reminds me so much on cfop, which I hate. :P

EDIT2:

Average of 5: 19.50
1. (15.36)
2. 17.47
3. 21.70
4. 19.34
5. (22.17)

6. Blocks need work

I do the same but only because 6 people at College all have ZhanChis ... and as you could guess, they are all exactly the same so as a group we named them all, they are Fred, Alex, Joey, Matty, Jolene and 1 other that I can't remember

When anyone wants a cube it's easier to say a name than try to describe the cube in terms of how chipped stickers are, whether or not it has anchors or which cap has tipex under

F2L pair at the bottom (RDB+RD), M pair the middle edge (RD) then finish with the last F2L pair (RDF+RF) ... I don't do this at the moment but I should probably start doing so
