    Penn and Teller: Fool us - Rubik's Cube Magic

    Figured out the entire solution to the last part (solved cube -> "millisecond scramble" -> matching Teller's cube), based on the exact way it's done in the video, not some Cube Explorer solution. Haven't seen anyone post it yet.

    3x3 Rubik's Cube Patterns and Particle Physics

    The only "discussion" that is apparent to everyone here is you forcing everyone to acknowledge how great your discoveries are and refusing to indulge in any meaningful discussion with well-respected members of the community who actually know what they're talking about (hint: Kociemba). lol yer...

    3x3 Rubik's Cube Patterns and Particle Physics

    There's a reason no one uses this notation anymore. It's, in fact, not easy to use. Personally, I like "M2 S2 E2" better than "sR2, sF2, sT2," but that's just me. Yes, yes we must. On an unrelated note, can I try what you're smoking? It appears that you get most (all?) of your information from...

    3x3 Rubik's Cube Patterns and Particle Physics

    lolwut. Seems like you bearly know any math. No. "Symmetries of the Rubik's Cube" always refers to discrete symmetries. All the symmetries that you've given cute names to are discrete symmetries. SU(2) is a Lie group. No. SU(3) is not "distinctly more complex" than SU(2). In fact, this...

    Being sure you are done with your edges (Old Pochmann)

    Here's a solution that's both "efficient" and "mathematical." Label the n pieces by any n primes you like: p_1,\ldots,p_n. Let M=\prod_{i=1}^np_i=p_1\times p_2\times\cdots\times p_n and memorize it. When you extend your memorization string by the nth piece, redefine M to be M/p_n. When you've...

    Being sure you are done with your edges (Old Pochmann)

    There's no need to actively count pieces if you design a memo system that does it for you for free. What do I mean by this? Consider this analogy: if I told you my credit card number is 39549272037311, you'd have to count to realize that that can't be right because it only has 14 digits. Even...

    South Carolina Open 2014 - May 24th, 1014

    Yes. Unfortunately, there were issues concerning the venue that could not be resolved. So why don't you organize one? There's never going to be a competition if everyone's just waiting for someone else to organize one. Read this if you're interested.

    Carolina Speedcubing

    I realize this thread's been dead for a while, but I'll say a little something in an attempt to revive the cubing community in the Carolinas. I'll start with a little blurb about myself (presumably most cubers today don't know who I am). The KOII (Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois) cubers are...
