used a block comm in a 5BLD solve:
5:55.04
D' Fw Rw' Dw Uw' F' U2 B R D' Lw2 U' L2 R2 Uw F' L D2 Fw2 B2 F Dw Rw' Dw2 B2 F2 U' Rw2 F D2 Lw' B' L Fw Lw2 U' Fw2 Lw R B' Lw U' D' B2 Uw2 Lw' Uw2 Fw2 Uw2 F' Bw' Lw2 Fw2 R2 Uw2 Fw D' F' D' L2

first pair of midges is WE (DR LU) and the 3rd pair of wings is WE, so you can solve both of these with [3Rw R' U' 3Rw' R, D'] after the first 2 wing comms, and then skip the first pair of midges

This sort of thing impresses me so much. I remember years ago when Daniel Beyer talked about doing this on a regular basis in his solves. I generally don't have enough awareness to even notice the opportunity.

so.. after not practicing for a while, earlier this week I DNF'ed 3/3 of my 5BLD attempts(none of which were under 15:00). I felt sad that it seemed my 5BLD skills were fading. Today I decided to do 5BLD for the weekly comp not expecting much, but then this happened:

12:36.07 [5:27.27] ; 5BLD single PB by almost 1:30

I honestly cannot believe this just happened and my hands are still shaking. Having a sub-ChrisHardwick 5BLD really means a lot to me because he was breaking world records when I first started cubing. I can't believe I actually got it. This is probably my greatest cubing accomplishment to date. (or at least my favorite)

28.13 official 3bld single, finally got a sub 30 after chasing it for so long. Could've been a 25-ish without mistakes but oh well. Too bad sub 30s aren't special anymore

In the buffet car queue on the Eurostar coming back from the World Championships a couple of young women saw me cubing. One of them asked for the cube to mix up and told me that I was to look at it once and then solve it with my eyes closed as she'd seen it done on some program about geniuses. I'm not normally comfortable doing blind on command but something about their good looks and the beer I'd had made me say OK. The solve was pretty quick for me and I opened my eyes to an ovation from dozen or so people. Absolutely made up for my 3 DNFs in comp.

7:21.10, 7:09.09, 8:05.88 = 7:32.02 5BLD mean of 3
First mo3 since my first one ever which was 14:55 lol. Really really proud of this accuracy. Oh and the 7:09.09 is PB single also.

Edit:

Edit #2:
Just a nice thing I noticed, after that mo3 my last 10 5bld attempts make a 5/10 session with a 7:31.96 overall mean

Edit #3 lolololol:
Did another solve the next day, 7:03.20 PB single which rolled the mo3 to 7:26.06 and gave me a 7:32.02 ao5
