2 questions if you don't mind my asking, first, what is your overall average now? Like sub 9 or sub 10? Also, do you know algs for your olls from all angles or just two? I am debating on learning more, but I fear it will hurt recognition.

I'm not sure what my overall average is, i'm normally sub 9 though.

Also, just 2 for most of them, and a few only one. With enough practice it wont hurt your recognition, but learning them from all angles is kinda pointless anyway.

How many COLLs do you know? Presumably at the least the 2GLL was on purpose.
I really like the Vperm from the y2 angle, and that Zperm is interesting; less U2ing that the more common one.

Breandan you are truly an inspiration! Watching your solves makes me feel like how a non-cuber must feel watching someone speedsolve for the first time! This average was really amazing!

Heh..sorry =P
I just did this because it's a holiday here and I have nothing to do after lunch. Also he has the scrambles so it's pretty easy to reconstruct (then again it still took me almost 2 hours for this). And no, I don't normally do reconstructions, and yours is always better anyway with more details (ETM, description of algs, etc), so keep up the awesome work!

It helps if you do it the smart way. The cross usually takes me the longest time to reconstruct, especially harder ones. F2L, OLL, and PLL, you can usually figure out the alg from your own solving experience, so you don't really have to see turn by turn. On some rare cases (like the <R,U> ZBLL) where I don't know the alg, just look for the case in the wiki.
