3352. When nobody knows how high the numbers are because they're so scattered.
3353. When someone (*cough*sputter*me*sputter*cough) goes out to change it for the sake of this thread

Part IV: A New Hope--- I mean, 601-800


601. when you do an ao12 on 4x4x4 and get 3 PLL skips except you get the annoying PLL parity on it each time (the adjacent kind)

602. when you notice that the post above happened to you

603. when you buy a gas air because it is the most expensive of the popular cubes

604. when someone tells you that the valk is better so you buy a valk

605. when you are the person who told him the valk is better.

606. when you want to snipe no.624

607. when you ask people to guess what for


608. when you ask the question above about a previous post

609. when you reply to that question;

610. when you say that PLL parity would be a PLL skip on a 3x3x3 therefore it could be considered a PLL skip with PLL parity

611. when2. When you have never tried a gear cube and see one at a comp, you ask the person who has it to let you solve it and you get it in under a min.

543.When you say that if you had the tps of Lucas etter and the ability to figure out a 150 move solution like a computer it might just be possible

544. When you get pretty release for the yuxin 17*17*17

545. When you realise you can solve it in less than an hour

546. When you can solve puzzles that a majority of people haven't heard of... blindfolded.

547. When you remember that time period when Feliks, Mats, and Alex were the only people with a sub-6.

548. When you instantly notice a Rubik's Cube when you go to someone's house.

549. When you forget that "cubing" isn't a word to some people.

550. When you can't remember any of your PBs because you've had too many.

551. When you remember when MMAP was respected.

552. When you remember when MMAP uploaded consistently.

553. When you remember showing random non-cubers MMAP's videos because you thought they'd you think you know that the odds of getting this in an ao12 on 4x4x4 are: 1 in 72( correct me if I'm wrong)

612. when you decide to put the maths for this on here:

chances of PLL skip: 1 in 72

chances of PLL parity: 1 in 2

chances of the adjacent PLL parity: 1 in 4

72x4= 288

however in an average of 12 with three solves getting that it puts the chances at 1 in 72

613. when you do the working out when the end of line1 of the working out is the same as the end of line5 of it

614. 01:17.76 is your 4x4x4 truncated average for that exact AO12

615. when you have to use fancy terminology like truncated

616. you get really annoyed when people call it a rubiks cube(surprised this has not come up yet)

617. when you don't tell them its not any more because you are so bored of it (Mats Valk)

618. when you write long posts on this thread with 11 signs


okay, here we go:

you're looking for the chance of an adjacent swap PLL parity happening at least 3 times in a 4x4 average of 12.


There are four ways for this to happen, out of a total of 144 PLL cases (we have to count asymmetrical ones like G-perm 4 times, ones with two symmetries like E-perm twice, and ones with 4 symmetries like H-perm once).

Therefore, the chance of this happening on one specific solve is 4/144=1/36.


the chance of an event occurring at least 3 times is equal to the chance it occurs exactly 3 times plus the chance it occurs exactly 4 times, etc. up to the chance it occurs every time.


For each of those, we use the formula

(n choose k) (p^k) (1-p)^(n-k)

for n=12, p=1/36, k from 3 to 12 inclusive


(12 choose k) (1/36^k) (35/36)^(12-k)


and use wolfram alpha!


Your probability is:

18506816456382521/4738381338321616896

or about 0.39%

or eighteen quadrillion, five hundred six trillion, eight hundred sixteen billion, four hundred fifty-six million, three hundred eighty-two thousand, five hundred twenty-one-four quintillion, seven hundred thirty-eight quadrillion, three hundred eighty-one trillion, three hundred thirty-eight billion, three hundred twenty-one million, six hundred sixteen thousand, eight hundred ninety-sixths.


However, if you mean EXACTLY 3 times, then you get a different result:

4334860126953125/1184595334580404224

or about 0.37%


619: You waste 10 minutes of your day solving a pointless cube-related math problem.



620. Everybody you know knows you're a cuber.

621. The first thing you tell anyone about yourself is that you're a cuber.

622. People bring scrambled cubes to you so they can be solved.

623. You're hoping to get into college solely on the fact that you're a speedcuber.


624. Your PB is sub-Mitch... on 4x4.


625. You smile to yourself whenever you see certain numbers in your day-to-day life.


626: when you're angry at someone else getting 624.

628.You're so excited that you fail to see that I skipped 627.

627.This time you caught my mistake of writing(typing) 629 as 627.

629.You think 627 and 628 have no connection to cubing.

630.You get annoyed by me.

633. You have to replace the stickers on your main cubes every other month

634. You don't realize how stupid this thread has become.

Really.............


635. Really


636. You don't get nervous at comps

637. You podium in an event without practicing

638. When you get a counting 4

642. and when you can do it in under 2 seconds

643. When you speedsolve 9x9

644. When you've competed in magic or master magic

645. When you remember cubing before Feliks


638: "counting x" usually means a solve time of x in (usually an avg5, sometimes an avg12) that is neither the best nor the worst, like for instance when I got the official times 13.07, 11.19, 8.75, 8.74, 11.87; I could say I got a counting 8.

645: It means you started cubing before circa 2010 when Feliks became God.

646: When your Moyu stickers chip off completely in a day

647. You own more cubes than thecubicle.us

648. You remember when there were less official 5s than there are official 4s now.

The last date that was true (counting Antonie's NR today) was December 12, 2014. The sub-6 times were:

Mats Valk, 5.55, Zonhoven Open 2013

Feliks Zemdegs, 5.66, Melbourne Summer 2014

Jiayu Wang, 5.81, Cube Elite Union Cafe 2014

Alexander Lau, 5.96, Cambridge Open 2013

Drew Brads, 5.97, US Nationals 2014

649. When you can be bothered to look at world records and almost world records from 2014

650. When you realise that cubing has gone 5 years and Feliks still hasn't managed to knock a single second off his official PB


651. You recognize permutations by sense of smell.

652. You predict permutations by sense of smell.

653: When you no longer need a cube to practice cubing, but can just close your eyes and practice in your mind.

654: 1 whole wall in your room is full of podiums from competitions (true story)

655. when you realize it was a waste of time

3359. (3350-3358 in SUPER-LONG 1000 Reasons Posts) When you get 49.14 sec. on Mirror Cube PB and beat LC Cuber (or JR Cuber, I don't know which is which, other than their faces)(might have been me)
3360. When you can't determine the difference between LC and JR Cuber, other than their faces
3361. When you realize that only you, Cuber314159, and FireCuber are still posting.
3362. When you finally realize that Cuber314159 knows some pi.
3363. When you memorize 100+ digits of pi, just to improve your solves

3371. When your stackmat's screen can be used as the monitor, itself can be used as the keyboard, and your main can be used as computer mouse.

3372. When you realize you haven't posted for about a year now
3373. When you have to buy a new cube for every solve because your cube breaks and the cube happens to be the GAN X, so you end up being in debt by $millions of dollars so you move to India and use rupees instead and become the poorest peron in the world, and your times start becoming as long as 5 years per solve because you decided to digitize every single cube and it catches a lot so it pulls up a page saying "Undo turn?" every time you turn it a tiny bit off from what it was, but then see Reason 3374...
3374. You actually try slow solves and get the WR avg in comp and realize all you needed was a cheap dollar store cube because you like the feel of it and you're just sitting there wondering why you bought so many GAN cubes that they sold out. :p
