    Today I chanced upon a fellow cuber on the London Underground

    Haha! You're too kind! Yeah, a story about two guys basically just sitting next to each other is pretty boring! I should have thrown an action scene or something in the middle...

    Today I chanced upon a fellow cuber on the London Underground

    A tall guy in a beanie sat next to me and pulled out a cube. Of course, it caught my eye immediately, but my excitement was short lived as in the next second I clocked the make of the puzzle - Rubik's brand. Ok, so this guy was unlikely to be a pro, but still, it's not every day that you...

    Accidentally finding speedcubers

    When I was studying at UCL, I once walked down a flight of stairs with my 3x3 to see a girl walking the other way solving a 4x4. She was pretty involved and I don't think she saw me and I was too stunned to say anything. Having said that, number of female cubers is pretty small and I didn't...

    I lived in Cyprus for 3.5 years. (Greek half.) Very fun place.

    One Piece Discussion Thread

    <3 one piece! I watched the first few hundred eps, but I've had too much on recently and haven't watched any =( need to catch up. Btw, I don't think I'll check this thread again, for spoiler reasons. Zoro is don. Also, Naruto is rad.

    Non-Permuting OLL Algorithms, Improving PLL look ahead

    Ah, good find! Fair, but I still thought it was an interesting idea. Ideas don't always have to have a practical application...that would be boring!

    Non-Permuting OLL Algorithms, Improving PLL look ahead

    Didn't Kir do something like this at one point and call it "Pure OLL"? I can't for the life of me find it...

    London and Birmingham Riots

    Yups, looks like Manchester got the worst of it this evening. London seems to have taken the night off. Even so, still hearing sirens all the time. I saw this today...really uncool. Edit: This was the Sony warehouse, it was burning all day and probably still is now.

    London and Birmingham Riots

    We can add to our list Liverpool, Nottingham and Bristol. All of which also saw riots last night. I believe we have a couple of cubers in Bristol, Charlie Cooper and Toad at least, right? My flatmate and I stayed up pretty late last night watching the news roll in. At one point we could see...

    London and Birmingham Riots

    My flatmate did his Masters in Birmingham, this seems to be what we're hearing from some of his friends too. Hahahaha! Cheers, mate! I'll do exactly that! The riots were closer to me earlier today, but I don't think any of the nasty stuff has come close to where I live yet... Yeah, you...

    London and Birmingham Riots

    So, there are some pretty heavy riots going on in London at the moment. Fires and looting and the like. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-14435251 ... I can see the smoke from Croydon from my flat. How are my fellow London cubers? Anyone in Birmingham?

    One-Answer Blindsolving Question Thread

    Sure thing. I'll be aiming for move optimal. Mike, Thanks for the link. I did come across this in my searches, but I didn't give too much time to it as I didn't want to 'just' learn a handful of algs. At present, when I solve with BH corners (sighted for now) I work the cases out...

    One-Answer Blindsolving Question Thread

    Absolutely, it's very good. I'm just looking for a anything else out there which I can read/watch to help me pick up BH corners. Learning everything from one source isn't really good practice.
