    I wonder what Feliks would do on that.

    I wonder if feliks would even attempt that pointless wrist-destroying stuff :D
     
  4. The most ridiculous part of the whole video to me is that he still did the compulsive pick-up-the-3x3-and-fiddle-with-it after finishing the solve. That's the last thing I'd want to do

    ~2:40 on the centres, wow.

    Should this be a DNF because he used his phone a couple of times during the solve? lol

    He also does this in the middle of the solve! E: It also looks like he's checking his parity L2E algs with a 5×5×5, heh.

    I wonder if we'll ever have a thread about Kevin without someone mentioning Feliks.

    As is often the case, I contest that my punchline was less accurate but more humorous.

    Perhaps I'm the only one but I find it incredibly annoying when people do that. I can't explain why, it just does.

    That'd be a fun challenge. 384 magnets. About 1.5 days glueing and 2 more to reassemble. You supply the puzzle and I'll do it for $200 (presuming it's possible without modifying the pieces, and uses a normal split-piece design). ;-)

    Not entirely. I'd be surprised if anybody took me up on it, but if you want to pay me for it I'll be happy to give it a shot.

    As an archaeologist I dug holes for many years. Towards the end I could feel the affects it was having on my back and I got out just before I had issues which would have likely remained forever. It makes me wonder if it's similar for speedcubers. By doing a solve like this is he putting his future solving at risk?
