’So, on big cubes, is it like, the same algorithm to solve the cube as on the normal one?’
1. We don’t use a single algorithm to solve the cube
2. One same algorithm won’t solve all 43 quintillion possibilities
3. Do you really have to ask that question?

Cubing at lunchtime in the library, these three people came up to me. One of them asked to mix up my cube, and after like 30 seconds, he promptly dropped it, the blue centre cap and one of the blue edge caps falling off. The rest were like ‘OMG you broke it dude, say sorry to him’. He didn’t, and watched me put the caps back on again. ‘Guys it didn’t even break, what did I do wrong?’ And then they were like ‘Wow you’re so good at fixing things like that.‘ :fp

While he was scrambling, one of the other guys said his brother was the ‘Rubik’s Cube World Champion’. I asked him what his brother’s name was. He said the ‘The Rubik’s Cube World Champion’ :fp. I searched it up on the WCA website, and it came up with no IDs. I asked him if his brother had been to a competition. He said yes, he won a thousand quid last week.

Then I proceeded to tell him:
1. Your brother‘s name is obviously fake
2. If you were telling the truth about your brother’s name, he hasn’t been to a competion
3. The WCA doesn’t hand out £1000 prizes to the ‘champion’ as far as I know

His reply - It wasn’t a WCA thingy unofficial competition, it was organised by the Rubik’s company.

:mad:

I have had three different people tell me that they have solved 'all except the last side' I know that they aren't smart enough to solve a cube because they aren't smart enough to know that solving five sides isn't possible.

"If you turn this side clockwise and this one counterclockwise [R U'] won't all four sides eventuality clear out?"

There are so many thing wrong with this sentence. It took my, like, an entire minute to figure out what they tried to say.
