My 2nd attempt at 3BLD was off by 2 flipped edges... I memo'd RM KC BG XL HU - DQ CN OL EM KP AH SH, but I should have had UG at the end :(

Oh well... maybe I'll get it next time.

Just had the saddest 5BLD DNF ever at UKC today. Not a nice scramble - had to go into 2 rooms for X centres which never happens, 4 cycle breaks in wings, and 3 twisted corners with 3/4 parities. I jokingly said to my judge before the solve that I couldn't remember how to execute parity - at the end of corner parity I went to execute U R U' R' U2 and instead executed U2 R U' R'. DNF, everything else was solved.

DNFed a 3:32 5BLD by 2 xcenters which, if successful, would have given me a 3:40 mo3 and 3:50 ao5 :(
(could have potentially rolled the ao5 as well)

I did a 12 corner scramble for megaminx BLD just to remember how it works without investing the 20m that would be required to memo all of the corners.

7m execution because I'm bad at blind, off by 3 corners.

But, now I have the hang of it and can push for a success next month.

47.87 PB mo3 fail. The 48 was off by 2 flipped edges. Would've been PB by 6 seconds :/

The 38 is PB2 (post in success thread) and was 7 algs lol
