1. ### Is 2LPLL actually any good?

I use a 2LOLL and 2LPLL (since I took a while off from cubing). I'm re-learning my 1LPLL right now, and will be working on 1LOLL afterward. But to answer the OP, yes 2LPLL is great, I like it a lot, and if you use the right algs, it makes a perfect stepping stone to the 1L method.
2. ### Who or what got you into cubing

As I mentioned before, there was one in the clearance bin at wal*mart, but what really got me into it was a certain series of movies inspired by Clive Barker.
3. ### PLL help

right clockwise 90 deg, left 180 deg, down face (the "bottom of the cube) counter-clockwise 90 deg, back face (opposite front) 90 degrees counter-clockwise), down face 90 degrees clockwise, back face 90 degrees clockwise, left face 90 degrees clockwise, back face 90 degrees counter-clockwise...
4. ### My solutions?

I'd stick to intuitive F2L and only learn algs for crazy cases like that.
5. ### Roux method

roux can be a lot of fun honestly, but frustrating (to me) at the same time. I like the consistency of fridrich honestly.
6. ### Outline of Your Speedcubing Method, Tricks, and Techniques

My times are horrible, I'm lucky to get sub 2 minutes on a solve. For a diagonal swap I use an E-perm that does not change the edges followed by whatever I have to do to the edges.
7. ### Outline of Your Speedcubing Method, Tricks, and Techniques

I do a pretty standard Fridrich style solve, but I use a full compound LL (compound OLL and compound PLL) inspired by Mr. Garron's page on compound OLL. I also try to do an extended cross when I can.
8. ### 4D Megaminx

I'm scared... very very scared
9. ### Potential Thesis Study

for my current speed goal (sub 90 seconds) there are other things I want to focus on right now is all I meant by that.
10. ### Potential Thesis Study

I read it and decided that being opposite-side neutral is worth it, but full neutral is not (for me at least).
11. ### Roux method

I know, I'm just going by the instructions on: http://grrroux.free.fr/method/Step_4.html
12. ### Roux method

Yeah, they do all resolve to another case, but sometimes it keeps going back and forth between them for (what feels like to me) a long time.
13. ### Roux method

If both are on the F side, do a U2 and then a y2 so that the top front and back bottom are the wrong ones and then do M`U M (I learned a lot when someone told me that you have to have 2, 4, or 6 wrong edges).
14. ### Cross on bottom question.

Very interesting, thanks for the replies.
15. ### Cross on bottom question.

How many of you actually solve it on the bottom, and how many start with it on top and flip the cube as part of your last edge placement?
