What would be a good speed for my PLLs? Currently they're almost all consistently sub-2

Edit: The only one's not sub-2 consistently are Gc, Na, and Nb. Also V is around 1.9 on average and Rb is around that time as well. Everything else is closer to 1.5 or 1.75(with the fastest ones being low 1)

Yeah as a fellow "person who sucks at PLL" I can relate, the norm is to be able to at least get 1.2 for each PLL (something I achieved only a little while before Sub 10

PB was high 1:03, then this happened

2. 1:15.32
3. 1:02.16
4. (1:15.68)
5. (1:01.30)

5 should've been first sub-1, didn't predict PLL parity. This is 4x4 btw
Aha! Finally something I’m better at than you (by two seconds)

I swear you're a part of a large team that finds the perfect meme for every situation on every forum/social media.
Nah, I have just spent my fair share of time on reddit, I used to be on there a lot but I find speedsolving.com to be a much better community in terms of good interactions then r/cubers and basically all of reddit since people are much friendlier here and are willing to make real conversation. The only thing I still go on reddit for is r/bikinibottomtwitter and a few other communities. I used to be really active on r/cubers but I switched to speedsolving and never looked back. Also on a more serious note, I am not a member of one of those teams and I find the ones that don't credit the content creators or give them compensation for their work are manipulative and evil. I were a part of those teams, in my eyes, that's basically selling my soul by stealing content and plastering it somewhere else. At this point, the memes punchline is the post I'm quoting and I make sure to only use templates and not memes other people made, and If I did I would put their reddit user in the post. I made a bunch of crappy memes for r/cubers that seemed funny to someone that is brand new to cubing with rediculous situations or overused jokes (the jay cube drop was still amazing though). But it still works that I made and I find it very frustrating when people take memes from anyone, especially r/dankmemes. I personally have not had any content stolen from my profile (as I know of) but it would make me very upset if someone took my content without permission, especially if they made money off it like a lot of Instagram pages do. Ah, I did it again, made a long post over a one-liner joke but hey, that's the Sub1Hour way. anyway, meme stealing bad, especially if you make money off it


Thanks for coming to my ted talk

When you see a wall of text lacking with my profile on it just assume that's what's happening. It's almost a given at this point unless I'm talking about methods or hardware or something and even then its at least a little rant-ish. Just accept the fact that my brain will turn literally anything into something I'm mad about. I dare you to try me.

Same here, except I don't like all the typing, especially on my phone.
