    I was scrambling and two little kids were watching. I usually scramble at a higher tps than when I'm solving so the kids were like, "Your fingers are crazy fast". I look up to see who was my worshipper and then he said, " He's not even looking at it."... I still can't do BLD.

    We should probably talk about this somewhere else.

    People told me, when I was describing methods to a non-cuber, "why u no use best method?"

    *Asks if they can "mix up" my cube* *I solve it* *They scramble it again but say I can't look because I'll just reverse it*

    When people say they are scrambling when really they are turning the same side back and forth. And holding the cube as if it is REALLY HARD TO TURN O_O

    I'm sub 40, on a very good day. Someone saw me solving, and told me his cousin competes in speed competitions and does really, REALLY good at them. I said he must be a lot better than me. He said that I was WAY faster than his cousin.

    Once on a train I was just doing some timed solves:

    Guy next to me: How the hell did you do that!?
    Me: Well-(interrupted)
    GNTM: (to the nearest person) Did you see that, he just solved the Rubiks cube! I could never do that. (looks at the time on my timer) I'm out... (25 sec solve)

    I was suprised by this just because he didn't say the usual things apart from how do you do it but I was expecting just a barrage of stereotypical non-cuber comments.

    Also what do you think when people see Feliks solving in public?

    somebody saw my scrambled 3x3 on a table (I was practicing pyraminx at the time and someone scrambled it) and told me that he thinks he can solve all 3 sides.
