We had a cubing comp at school, and the teachers didn't even know what they were doing. They didn't trust us to scrambles the cubes ourselves so they took turns scrambling the cubes for like 100 moves. Then they made us solve them in front of the entire year and while STANDING UP. We couldn't even sit down a solve it. And they didn't get stackmat timers or something they used stopwatches and timed us themselves. They also only gave us one try only to solve the cubes which is really unfair because one of us could get lucky and win. But worst of all, to start the solve, they said ''3, 2, 1, Rubik!'' replacing the word ''go'' with ''rubik''. I bet the audience found that funny, but us cubers found it extremely cringy.

The 4-cube! Everyone says that they can solve it... cut they can't.

Actually, one of my friends worked out how to solve the 'triangle cube' within a few days with only a few prompts from me. It is pretty easy though.


When you take your cube apart to lube it: you broke it!

I remember a time when quite a lot of those comments were said by me, while I was still unknowing in how to solve a cube, and content to watch my brother solve it, and going ‘WOW’. Insert nostalgia comment here.

My friend asked me "What if someone gets a rigged cube at a competition?" As you might imagine I was thinking to myself, "what does that even mean?" So she clarified saying what if someone got a cube with 10 stickers of one color and first of all you bring your own puzzles to competitions, second of all I don't think anyone in the observable universe will be sitting at a scrambling table and thinking "hmm, what if I were to put some different stickers on this cube"

Once, this guy told me he did a 3x3 in thirty seconds. But, actually what he did was he did U R a bunch of times and undid it. Hey, you can't blame him. It's still technically solving the 3x3, but not a legitimate solve.
U R?
I once did that for 5 minutes and it didn't go back to a solved state.

anyway, them non-cubers always say that the pyriminx is way harder than the 3x3.
