    That scramble is a dud indeed...

    Solar Eclipse - 20th March 2015

    We're only getting to 83% here in Belgium... I'll be at my daugters's school with my telescope to allow all the kids to get a close, safe look.

    The FMC thread

    Hmmm... A 2E2c swap like N or T perm can solve the edges and a corner, leaving a corner cycle. Should be sub 30

    Favorite Solving Method?

    Human Thistlethwaite and a bit of FMC

    I just noticed I'm already ninja'd but I cannot keep this nice solution from you: Human Thistlethwaite on inverse U R F - EO U L D U' R U2 R - Corner orientation L2 D R2 U B2 - corner separation U2 B2 U B2 U2 R2 U R2 - pair up corners F2 U' R2 L2 U' L2 F2 L2 F2 L2 F2 D2 R2 - edges 36...

    Belgium cube meet up

    Brussels or Gent (as I'm located somewhat in between)

    The FMC thread

    How about finishing a bit more FMC-like after your FL2-1? B2 D' B' D B' D' B . D B2 - leaves 3 corners in 26 HTM This part also looks very interesting for insertions. At . insert B U B' D B U' B D' to cancel 4 moves = 40 HTM

    What is the easiest Megaminx method?

    Solve "F2L" until there is one slot left. Use the slot to orient and place all edges. Solve the remaining 6 corners with commutators.

    A way to solve Rubik's Cube 3x3 without memorization?

    Heise "as such" is too complicated for a beginner because of the pseudo blocks. A simplified Heise could be considered as: Building an F2L-1 in the traditional CFOP way or keyhole (no algs needed) Then use the open slot to orient and permute the edges. Solve the last 5 corners via commutators...

    Best memorization claim

    Simple, the best memory claim is the Pi Matrix Memorization Some cut n paste: The Pi Matrix Memorization record requires the memorizer not only to know the actual order of the first 10,000 digits of pi, but also to know the digits in the correct order from anywhere in the sequence. It has...
