I wanted to make this because I just got into FMC a little bit which dragged me towards Petrus even more. I would really like to see some examples and I'm pretty sure a lot of other people would too. You have to admit... When someone gets a 28 move solution it kind of blows your mind. And the examples won't be long at all because you are going for fewest moves. Oh and I kind of want to see some of irontwig's examples.
I'll start but I'm not that good.

U2 R U B2 D L2 R' B2 D' L2 D2 U' B2 F2 D' F' D2 U2 L2 D R B' R' D' F
Inspection:y z
2x2: U' r2 U' r' R' U2 u' l (8)
2x2x3: B2 U2 L' U L U' y' L U' L (18)
EO: R U' R' U L F L' (25)
F2L: y' U2 R' U2 R U R' u R' U R2 U2 R' U2 R U' R' (42)
OLL: U' R U2 R' U' R U' R' y2 (51)
PLL: U' R' U R U' R2 F' U' F U R F R' F' R2 (66)

Wow, I suck. If I understood commutators and conjugates I would do Heise.
NEXT: F L B' L2 D' U' R B' U' L B F' U F' R F' B R' U D2 F D2 R F' D

PS: If this thread already exist than excuse this thread because I couldn't find it.

I have a bit mixed feelings about this thread idea...
Although I love FMC I think the current example solve thread already does a nice job.

To get the maximum out of a given FMC scramble you should check out the weekly comp results.
There you get multiple solutions for the same scramble with proper explanation which I think is much more valuable than a single scramble / solution.

Anyway, if this thread does take off I'll throw in some solves too :)

I don't think this is a good idea at all, and here's why:
- the FMC thread is already really good for discussing FM solutions and techniques, and already has many dozens (if not hundreds) of solutions;
- there are hundreds of solutions (both slow and fast) in the Fewest Moves Contest archives, not to mention the Weekly Contest threads;
- trying to quickly solve a scramble before the next person posts doesn't represent good FMC technique; and
- it doesn't make sense to talk about an example solve of someone's FM method, because any good solver will use different techniques and ideas depending on what they see.
