Rubik's brand (2003-2005ish) -> type C -> GH -> FII -> Haiyan -> Dayan LingYun (sp?) -> Zhanchi
Something like that. I might have used one or two other cubes before FII, but I think those last four are in correct order.
On the rare occasions that it happens, it's always amusing to me when someone I've never heard of gets a WR. Congrats on the beastly solve, Fakhri! It's also fascinating to me that you did this without the stackmat. Well done, sir.
About 9 years (summer 2003). My most serious cubing phase was probably 2005-2009, and the past few years I've basically stopped caring about attending comps or improving. I still pay a lot of attention to records and what's going on in the community, but I just have no desire to take it...
=~18.5 on an average day
Something like that anyway. LL varies by at least 1 sec depending on OLL case (I know only about 30-35 cases). My cross is also a bit inconsistent and slow.
I should definitely be a lot faster considering how long ago I started teh cubing.
Yeah, I'm certain that regardless of whether Anthony beat the driver's lap time he had to agree in advance to allow VolksWagon to manipulate the results to demonstrate how amazingly fast/efficient their car is. Of course they wouldn't make a commercial and allow him to win - that would defeat...
I think it'd be epic if you solved continuously while running, and recorded the total time to run the marathon as well as total number of solves. Any way you do it will be arbitrary, so I think you should just go about it in a way that's most enjoyable, challenging, fulfilling etc. to you. Have...
A) Leave "Country" and "NR" blank, but still allow CR and WR results
B) Let "Country" and "NR" sections remain as they are if a competitor stopped competing while his/her country still existed, as is the case with Jozsef. But if someone originally from a country that no longer exists...

How long have you been cubing and how long did it take to solve your first cube?
Since summer of 2003. I spent a little over a week learning a basic LBL method, and my first solve took like 5-10 minutes.
Can you describe the setting, emotions, and thoughts at the...
Another thing I forgot to mention that has been helpful for me in the past is to simulate as closely as possible all of the events you'll be competing in while someone "judges" your solves. So get a piece of paper, write "Super Official Competition Solves that Really Matter" or something that...
