3BLD PB again :D

3:21.13

Corner memo: I Visit Denmark Because My Keys Do :D
Edge memo is audio, so i can't remember that

Scramble: U F' U' F2 R' D' L' U' D F' D F2 U' B' D R2 D2 L D2 L' F' L B' L B
I wish I could do as much BLD as you... I can barely do 5 attempts a day :\
The corners were IVDBMKD? if they were, I really suggest you use 2 letters per word instead of 1 letter per word, can make your memo much shorter.

8 february 1993-2013 ! 20 years ago! The day that I solved a rubik's cube on tv. The gifts and prizes received I was happy but first I wanted to know at all costs if I was the first in the world to solve a cube BLD. I built a single method I desire to learn without any help. I was alone, the Internet didn't exist. Today with the knowledge sharing and collaboration, youth you become the best in the world. In this sense I can be considered for my time.

Among those of my generation I am loved by one half and the other hated. To some I am a cheater or more politely a magician. I had the passion dominated, I tried to go further on paper and unbeatable on stage and I think I succeeded. The cube is a symbol of frustration of thinking and patience. On the ground I think I was the ideal candidate for the return of the cube.

2003 Tel Aviv student joins Rubik's Cube tournament

Dror Vomberg has been an avid cubist since he was a child, but it wasn't until he was 15 that he learned how to solve the cube blindfolded.
He once saw a man doing the puzzle behind his back and was inspired to try it himself.
"I thought this guy has to have extraordinary vision or something," he said. "I thought I'd try it."

My first 4BLD attempt ever:

All centers correct, I forgot corner memo, 2 corners correct anyway, 9 Wedges correct (if that's what they're called) and a succesful wedge parity fix

I am happy, even though it was quite a fail. didn't know if i should post this in accomplishments or failures, so i posted in both :D

Time: 32.43.xx

1. Good job not being intimidated by 4BLD so soon after leaning 3BLD!
2. Just call them wings.
3. You gotta choose one.

I decided to do a couple of 2 cube Multi Attempts:
First Attempt: 2/2 in 6:11.30
Second Attempt: 2/2 in 5:38.86
Third Attempt: 2/2 in 5:06.39
Mean of 3 5:38.85

I'm pretty happy with this, I'll start doing bigger attempts every few day, maybe 5/5 in like a week.

Edit: 3BLD in 1:02.94[26.79]. Hopefully I'll get a sub 1 soon.
