Congratz Collin, I hope you keep it for an year atleast :) :tu
I still remember reading your thread regarding being nervous on going to your first competition! I had started cubing that year in 2010 :D
Got the FMC NR, finally a sub 30 official solve. The funny thing is that I am now tied with two other Indians with a 29 move solution.
Done at NCRO '14
Scramble : D L2 B2 F2 U' F2 D B2 L2 U2 L B L2 U' B' R' U2 B' R' F2
Solution : On Inverse scramble
B D F U' // 2X2
L U B D2 B' //...
I'm taking nothing away from Kunaal, the solve was pure brilliance.
But What would be the case if there was no video, I guess the solve would have stayed and it would have been an NR. Not only this solve, but there must be so many solves in which minute moves go unnoticed by judges...

2. In how many ways can 5 different rings be worn on the four particular fingers of the right hand?
3. In how...
Yeah, true that
Maybe a survey can be done to be sure on that. Something like asking all the top cubers of different events about their favorite subjects or interests, I am sure they all will have difference in their preferences
