One of the Mercedes F1 team members was playing with a Rubik's Cube while champion Lewis Hamilton was getting his seat fitted for 2019.
One of the world's best blind solvers demonstrating that this is basically going to be approached similarly to a blind solve, which someone mentioned earlier. Interesting that she split the corners and edges into two steps. I wonder how much time the shorter memorization chunks (2 looks) save in...
At what age does someone qualify for this this thread? I'm 29 and have been into cubing since around 2003. I'd rather solve than learn, so I have yet to learn full CFOP (still on two-look OLL), but average around 18seconds on 3x3. I don't feel like I am too far from the 15s barrier, I just...
I like NASCAR! In recent years my racing interest has been more towards IndyCar, but now and then I'll check in and see how the NASCAR season is going. I'd say Harvick is my favorite driver, but this year I'm hoping Truex will carry his success all the way to the title.
My turn to chime in :) (also, similarly to RedJack, I've never been to a competition. But I've lurked since 2003).
I've long thought that the commercial and entertainment aspects of cubing have huge potential and have been largely untapped. One idea that I've contemplated, more seriously since...
What amazes me is that cubing is growing largely by word of mouth. I think the "story telling" aspect of cubing is a largely untapped area, and one that I am really interested to be a part of. Keaton's comments in Chris Olson's recent world championship video were relevant to this, how cubing...
Although, oddly enough (to me, anyway), the Rubik's/Gan 3x3 is the cheapest 3x3 on the Gan website. I am curious to see how much it will cost when it is available in retail stores.
I am curious, though, to see how a non 3x3 Gan puzzle will turn out.
Hi all, it's been a while so I decided I should post a time. Not a great one for me, so I know future progress is very likely =). I am starting to do a massive overhaul of F2L but haven't been wanting to bite the bullet for the temporary drop in times.

Hi all, it's my first time in the sub-15 thread. I took a break after graduating from sub-20 and now I'm ready to get back on it. I'm almost 30 years old and I don't practice consistently, so my goal (perhaps lofty) is to get to sub-15 by the end of the year. Really solidifying my PLL and...
Cube: Aolong V2
(24.95), 20.21, 22.35, 18.21, 20.99, 21.48, 20.77, (15.93), 19.04, 17.04, 18.24, 20.76
Yay!!!! 3/3. I haven't been practicing much lately, so I am very happy to have crossed the barrier. I had a poor start but I didn't panic and my solves came...
Cube: Aolong V2
23.11: Corner twist
I didn't make it =(. I didn't feel fully warmed up and gave it a shot. It started off pretty well, but I had several mistakes. I messed up an F2L pair on...
Cube: Aolong V2
17.71, 18.90, (26.33), 21.74, 18.17, 18.24, 15.68, 21.39, 22.27, 20.16, 19.48, (15.27)
Some slow solves, but my solves below 20s were fast enough to balance things out. I forgot when the deadline was and missed last week's round. That's ok...
