Hello, world! I've been cubing on and off for a while now and lurking without an account, so I decided I might as well make one. So here I am... But why should you care? Allow me to explain...

First off, I'm no amazing speedcuber, and I have no illusions that I am. My PB on 3x3 is 22.3s and I average around 35.9s, 2x2 PB is 4.4 and I average 8.3, and magic PBB is 1.8 and 2.4 average. As far as big cubes go, I can solve them, but my times are monstrous and probably will explode some heads if I post them, so I won't.

I have a lot of patience when it comes to tedious tasks like putting together a 6x6 or stickering big cubes, I can memorize algorithms easily if I happen to not be too lazy to actually take the time to do it, and I hope to one day learn how to solve cuboids and get a whole bunch to rule the world with.

I also want to get into cube-modding, though I have no clue where to web start with that, and am eager to learn new and interesting things about the world of cubes.

As far as not-speedcubin goes, I'm learning guitar, can pretend to play the piano, and try to play chess when I can. For sports, I'm mostly into martial arts, mostly BJJ, but also don't mind soccer. When it comes to games, I prefer board games to video games, but rarely have people to play with, and when I do, there usually isn't enough time. When I do play video games, though, I prefer RPGs (including MMOs) and, of course, Minecraft (but who doesn't like Minecraft?). I enjoy reading books, mostly in the sci-fi / fantasy genre, but if a book is written well, I will probably enjoy it regardless. When it comes to music, Classic and Hard Rock and Metal are my Genres of choice with classical music close on the preference-o-meter.

I'm an amateur video game designer and write short songs to practice guitar, but those usually die out of memory shortly after an hour of not playing it.

In conclusion, I am a rat named Monkey who likes all the best things in the world, and you should care because if you don't, ninja zombies will eat your brain

I know it's only been an hour, but I'm surprised that I haven't seen more responses on this. Seriously, this is an epic introduction. Welcome to the forums!

Coolio! Welcome! Nice intro. For 3x3 and 2x2, what method do you use?

6. ### monkeytheratMember

For 3x3, I use CFOP with 4LLL and I use Ortega for 2x2, but if I ever get around to it, I plan on learning OFOTA fr 2x2 and CFL for 3x3

Mostly older stuff like Megadeth, Ozzy, Metallica, Iron Maiden, etc; but also some newer bands like A7x.

Why, thank you, fellow cuber! And thanks a second time for your second thank-deserving comment

By way of quite an extraordinary coincidence, I have chanced to meander about the wiki, but I suppose I will continue to do so for quite some time to come.
