    You should save your facepalms to sell on eBay, then maybe you can afford a sarcasm detector with enough left over for a sense of humor.

    Cubefag reports in.
    I now trained this method a little and it is really effective. I sometimes manage sub 0 solves and it often happens to have a middle layer skip. Also, I optimized the algorithms a little and made them 1-gen. This really helps my TPS and obviously is the reason for the sub 0 solves.
    Amazing work, Lucas!
    This method should get a Wiki page!

    Okay, this really isn't funny any more. Seriously, it's dumb.

    Yeah, that makes it the best method. Looks like your problem is solved.

    Then an intelligent person would stop looking at the thread. Either that, or they'd grow a sense of humor and just go along with it. :rolleyes:

    WOW! This is just awesome. You just don't have to think about anything anymore to get fast. This is perfect.

    There's just one thing I would add to this method I'd maek all the algs one gen by doing cube rotations. like instead of RU I'd do RzR. They're easier to perform 'cause you just do like two Rs in a row.

    The 4LLL "Expert" LL is just too complicated for me. But I will spend a few months just practising them and getting the whole LL under one second. Sub-5 is possible. This is the future of cubing.

    Nice spelling.

    Apparently you didn't realize that this was a joke. You can tell from the spelling mistakes and noobiness of Lucas' posts in this thread. Have you read his other posts? Compare those to the posts here and maybe you'll see that he was just acting.

    If this is dumb, what do you call the person who fell for it?

    Experiment over. Hypothesis confirmed.
    This thread has significantly more replies (55) than any serious ideas I've ever posted. The only threads I've ever started that gained more replies were SF09 (61) and the 2-gen contest (71).

    Anyhow, the point wasn't so much a joke with which I wanted people to go along. It's supposed to make some of you realize that you're posting stuff which is just as stupid, with the pretense of knowing what you're doing. I wanted to capture all those minor-facepalm components I try to restrain myself from getting angry about.

    As for the method, it's actually not bad for speed LBL. It's good if you want a high-TPS solve, or maybe if you want to show off with fast moves to people who don't care so much about the time.

    Well I don't think my posts were stupid... I was just genuinely confused about this method being fast.

    Although its funny, I did notice that you made quite a few spelling errors, which is definitely not like you.

    As I read the first post I thought several times about how Lucas sounded like a random member here making a thread, I guess that means he did a good job?

    Also, this whole test in general was a great idea, and it worked.
