"Hey man can I try that Rubik's cube?"
"Sure. *gives* Don't be too rough with the cube, it cost a lot."
"How much?"
"$42." "$42?! Dude I can go to the dollar store and get a cube that's better than this!"
"No..."
"Why does it cost so much?"
"Magnets..."
"MAGNETS?! *gasps* OH MY GOD IT MAKES SO MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE!"
"It helps with overshooting."
"No no! It's so special! Because it has circle centers!"
"-.-"

Here
I can’t even turn it that fast

And then there’s also accurate noncubers, like the wr is 5 seconds, can you do it that fast?

"Don't you use an algorithm to solve that?"
"Uhhh... you use a method with algorithms in it"
"So you DO use algorithms!"
"Yup"
"So what is it?"
"There are many algori-"
"WHAT IS IT!!!"
"Uhh... R U R' U' R2-"
"WTH ARE YOU SAYING?!?!?!"

Was it?

Non-Cuber: *watching me solve* You should be in the math(s) club.
Me: Why?
Non-Cuber: You can solve the Rubik's Cube.
Me: But that doesn't involve math(s).
Non-Cuber: Algorithms are math(s) related, and you use algorithms to solve the cube.
Me: Yeah, but the algorithms aren't math(s) related.
Non-Cuber: Did you not just hear me?
Me: Not all algo-
Non-Cuber (obviously triggered): I have an A in math(s)! I know more about math(s) than Albert Eisenstein!
Me: But that still doesn't mean tha-
Non-Cuber (oh jeez): ARE YOU TRYING TO QUESTION MY KNOWLEDGE IN MATH(s)! I KNOW ALGORITHMS ARE MATH(s) RELATED! YOU USE ALGORITHMS TO SOLVE THE RUBIK'S CUBE! THEY ARE RELATED!!!
Me: Yeah, bu-
Non-Cuber: YEAH, BUT BUT BUT BUT, BUT WHAT? I'M SMARTER THAN YOU!!!
*non-cuber then proceeds to throw his food at me*

I got in trouble... for instigating...

Spanish class today.

Context: I switched from Spanish II to Spanish III on Monday. Half the class didn't really notice me on Monday or Tuesday since there was a sub who obviously didn't say anything about it.
Today, the teacher was back, and she mentioned that I was switching into that class.

Actual quotes underlined.

Teacher: Justin's in this class now, he is infected with the Rubik's Cube sickness.

Me: henlo frends

Me internally: ¿kden?

Later:
(Teacher goes off on some tangent about how people sometimes focus better if they have something to do with their hands, and she's fine with it as long as it isn't loud or something, but needs a counterexample for some reason.)

Teacher: Justin, can you manipulate your cube?

*starts spamming LL algs*
*stops briefly*
*solves LL from there in like 3 seconds, casually sets down cube*

*everyone claps wtf*

When assigning partners for projects or other stuff, my Spanish 3 teacher will describe the two people in Spanish and the class has to guess who the person is.
Whenever he describes me he always talks about rubik's cubes, making hand motions. After he found out that I have the SR for Feet, he always mimes Feet solving while standing up.

I noticed my cube was getting dusty, so I decided to wash it
Me: *Disassembles cube
Me: I'm washing it
Dad: WHY? WHEN YOU WASH IT IT MAKES IT WORSE SINCE THE METAL WILL RUST
Me: This is plastic
Dad: THEN WHY DO I SEE METAL??
Me: because that's the core, I'm not washing the core
Dad: THEN YOU HAVE TO WAIT FOR IT TO DRY OVERNIGHT!! *Picks up pieces and moves them to the heater
Me: I can just hand dry it
Dad: BUT THERES WATER VAPOR ARE YOU STUPID??? FINE!!! ITS YOUR PROBLEM!!!
