2x2 Scramble: R U R2 F R' F2 R' U R' U'

Was practicing one handed and knew how to solve the entire cube before even turning it.

z //Inspection
R U2 R2 U' R2 U' R2 U2 R U2 //OLL

Time was 2.44. PB for 1 handed. Probably would have been a PB for 2 handed.

Skewb... two consecutive scrambles that should've been PB.

3. (5.37) U R U' L R' B' R U
4. (DNF(7.22)) U' B L R' B' U' R' U' L'
First solve is white layer, skip everything else. Timer stop fail.
Second solve I did blue layer, was supposed to hedge to skip L4C, did a sledge by accident, then failed trying to fix it.

Cool solve, but meh OH time because I only planned the Xcross and paused when I saw the pair before realizing inserting the edge would not disturb the pair.

Might have been a PB if I didn't lock up and my OH T perm didn't suck, but IDRK. At least there were no silly mistakes.
