One ultra-lucky single is reasonable, but getting three sub-6 singles while averaging above 20 seconds is extremely strong evidence of bullshitting.

It's not impossible, of course. Maybe they really average like 8 seconds and deliberately wait 15 seconds to stop the timer after finishing the solve, most of the time. There it would stand to reason that they might legitimately get some sub-6 singles. But is this even remotely plausible? Of course not.

Don't lie, kids. At least not to people who can instantly pick your lies apart.
Additionally, if you still use 'Ri' and 'Ui' to denote counterclockwise turns, your credibility is pretty much instantly shot.

The scramble is literally the solution in reverse, just with an optimal T-perm
Lol when I averaged 23 I could barely sub 2 tperm and even though f21 was just 3 move insertions, I still think it would have taken me a second or two to recognize the next pair. I don't understand what the point in faking solves is but whatever the reason is please don't do it. It wastes your time and other people's time.

14.95 3x3 single
down from my previous pb of 16.17
i cant reconstruct but my f2l flowed really nicely (i often get f2l that flows really good,my worst stuff is on last layer)
OLL was F U R U' R' F' so it was 1 look when i normally do 2 look
i think PLL was Gc perm??? not sure though

For the first time, sub15 single at 3x3!

My PB was 15.93, and now i got 14.35.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SCRAMBLE: D2 B2 L F2 L' U2 R' F2 D2 R2 F R' B2 L' B L D' L2 B R2

z2 y'
R' F L D L // Cross on white
U y' R U R' U' R U R' U' R U R' // Pair 1 (Blue/Red)

R U' R' // Pair 3 (Green/Red)
L U L' U2 L U' L' // Pair 4 (Orange/Blue)

U' f R U R' U' f' // OLL (luck, because i use 2look OLL, so that is "skip")

14.35

Started cubing in July and got my first sub 40 with a Meilong right out the box with a ao12 .45.xxx. Magnetized it and a Little Magic and there even more incredible can't decide which one I like best.

555 ao50: 1:28.82 → 1:27.49

(with the YLM 5 + extra magnets)

Haven't done any "serious" 555 practice in a few months, so this was unexpected. Meanwhile, my megaminx times have gotten much, much worse…
