    i once took my yuxin 3x3 to school , my friend told me he can solve it in under 30 seconds (at that time my average was 1 minute 20 seconds) so i told him to teach me , i asked him what method he used he said he did not know ,he said he saw it on a youtube video
    he explained his "method" to me but after many weeks i realized he was making a chekerboard pattern

    So I was ordering some backup mains for the WC this year (x-man bell and GouGuan 2x2).

    I explained that I can't warm up on my main, because it has to go to the officials at the scrambling table so they can scramble it. And then my Mom asks: "Why can't you warm up on your main?"

    Thats when I smack my forehead and tell her that I just told her why.

    This happens to me a couple of years ago, When I solved a Rubik's cube in front of my Church friends.

    Me: *Solved the cube*
    Them: Wow, you must have a middle brain!
    Me: ...... *wtf*

    Non-cuber: "I used to be able to solve that in like 15 seconds"
    He then proceeded to solve my cube LBL

    Seems legit
     
  10. Someone was watching me solve and he asked if I could see the matrix... There is no cube.

    Not technically a non cuber thing but it's still in that category.

    *I scramble my cube*
    Girl: Can I play your Rubik's Cube?
    Me: *play?* Sure
    *Girl solves F2L using LBL, and inserts several corners into the wrong slots before correcting it*
    Girl: How do you get the next part?
    *demonstrates now to get EO*
    *Girl takes cube back and completely solves it from there*

    I'm so confused

    A couple weeks ago, I was cubing for a bunch of people at my school during a summer camp I was helping out at. We were talking about scrambles and another helper (not a cuber) told me that to get really good scrambles you need to use the Google virtual cube... lol.
