I curious as to when we all started cubing. I'd guess most people started in the 2000s, but I'm sure there are some older and newer folks too.

I learned how to solve a rubik's cube at 99' (I was 10), then I forgot how to do it, re-learned it again at 08', but I'm speedcubing since this year, january.

I'd guess that the first cuber is Larry Nichols who has been solving 2x2 since the 1950s! Wow!

I played a lot with it when it was out in the eighties, but didn't start to speedcube until last year, as there is no "speed" in the question, I just answered 1980s :)

First learned how to do it back in the 80's where I set the "school record" of 58secs back in grade 6.

Only about 3 years ago did I pick up a cube again with the intention of beating that old pb. Now I'm averaging around 21secs.

My parents brought me a 3x3x3 Rubik's brand cube in 1981 and two solution books to solve it.

Remember that there was no internet (at least to us civilian users) back then.

But it took me until May 2009 to actually solve one. I brought one of the two book I was given in 1981 on Ebay and used that to solve it.
