    qwr's road to nowhere

    I had a good 2x2 session today, practicing optimizing turning for the ortega first face, remembering first layer bar, and starting to practice OLL prediction (mostly on easy first face) If you are wondering, this is what my spreadsheet looks like. I also save every cstimer time I've ever done...

    Nice idea and good way to connect to the community. (I could only do Chinese -> English translations but I can tell you if something sounds natural in English or not)

    The rise of Chinese cubers? (Yiheng Wang (王艺衡) / Ruihang Xu (许瑞航) / Yezhen Han (韩业臻))

    Practice helps but most young people even highschoolers can find 2 hours to practice something they are really into. I think I said this already but there is also the factor that nowadays cubes are much better and there is much more widespread knowledge about good algs and techniques with...

    The cubing argument thread

    both your points are very true. sound is heavily dependent on the recording setup, but also lube setup (which I think qiyi did beforehand) and turning speed also I noticed beyond complex color space issues which I'm not going to criticize SCS over, SCS videos have a weird saturated color...

    Cube Collectors Club

    maybe it'll be a fun endurance challenge to do a 10x10 in one sitting (as @Nmile7300 suggests in his non-wca puzzles video) 3x3 is like the 100m dash and a 10x10 is like a whole marathon

    Cube Collectors Club

    Kids learn skills faster is the best explanation I have. And cubing is taught in preschools apparently while most other countries kids have to look it up themselves. Combined with a huge population, we're bound to see prodigies popping up.

    The Cubicle vs Speedcubeshop Debate

    In contrast to what I said in the previous post, I appreciate Cameron showing more of his personality and stories on SCS. Phil has some personality but a lot of his personal thoughts are on his personal channel.
