single: 6.74

Time List:
1. 6.74 F2 R U2 R2 D2 F2 U2 B2 L B2 R2 D' F D L2 D' L F R2

Finally, I can lay to rest the internal conflict of whether my 7.11 counts as a PB because it was a hand scramble. Also, first sub 7!

y2 x2 // inspection
R D y R' F2 R U' l U' l' // xcross
R' U R U2 R' U R // F2L-2
U L' U2 L y' L' U L // F2L-3
R U' R' U' R U R' U2 R U R' // F2L-3
R U R' U R U2 R' // OLL (PLL skip)

It's kind of bittersweet though because looking back, this solve is kind of... pretty bad. Like, why did I start the cross with R D y' when I could just do R u? Why didn't I just do R u R' F2 U' R B'? Saves two moves (though is admittedly less finger trick friendly.) I don't understand how I didn't see the orange/green pair for F2L-3, but I'm not convinced that leads to a better F2L-4 case, last layer notwithstanding. And of course, most tragically, if I'd inserted the final pair with U' R U2 R' instead of U2 R U' R, I would have gotten an AUFless last layer skip and probably gotten a 5, skipping 6 entirely. But I don't think there's ever a world where I see that, because that was in the middle of the algorithm for that corner flip F2L case is burned into my muscle memory and I can do it very fast.

Not exactly an accomplishment, but I thought it was a silly average:
8.75, 10.08, 8.14, 10.00, 8.24, 10.63, 8.70, 10.44, 8.06

Just 8s and 10s, back and forth
I laugh at the 8.70 because I had a free block for x-cross and figured the pattern would continue. :p
Then I finally got 8.52, 854, and to finish the avg12 I got a...

9.07.

;p

I was just the luckiest person in existence...

Was grinding for a sub-25 ao5 race with a bunch of people then did this:

In these solves I got a pb mo3 (28.70), and ao5 (28.97), and ao12 (31.93), AND ao25 (33.39) AND ao50 (34.32) AND ao100 (35.15).

And a crazy 22.62 single with a free pair and pll skip!!!!!!
Which I think now qualifies me as insane
