    New "(official)" WR for the oldest couple to solve the Rubik´s cube: Mr. and Mrs. Micheelsen from Denmark have solved the cube at a common age of 166 years, 7 months and 2 days, such beating the former record holders, Mr. and Mrs. Tomoyori from Japan by some 20 years!

    Well, depends on how you define the length. These are all with five or fewer characters (space counting):

    Ba Le
    Ke Di
    Le Le
    Yi Su
    Yu Du
    Yu Lu
    Yu Xu
    Endah
    Jufry

    If you like X, there's also Xixi Xu

    Though... I'd say these are "arbitrary extreme names", not "odd stats" (what this thread was intended to be about).

    And, arguably more impressively, Egon's the oldest solver ever at 90 years old! Wow!

    Unofficial solves don't count, though. Oh well.

    I find it rather amusing that the oldest 3x3 solver is nearly 30 years older than the oldest Magic solver. And if I got my dad to solve, he'd be something like 2nd. Rune, do you have any plans to learn some other events (Magics, clock, 2x2, pyraminx) just to be the oldest person to solve them?

    "You can´t learn old dogs new tricks". The mere idea of trying could lead to a stroke in brain or heart. Let me have only one aim; be the oldest to get an average on the 3x3! And hopfully, this will happen within the coming two years.

    Any good competition should have this guy handy.

    Oh, and the BLD results were pretty close too (1:52, 1:55, 1:59) although nowhere near as close as the 3x3 ones.
