rip zz users on the bonus scramble
I mean, I got like a 9.3 on it with ZZ, 2 seconds under my average...

Also, don't feel the need to PM us. I'm really curious about this, but I don't need to know right now and there's no need to introduce uncertainty into your experiment by not being sure if someone told their friend before they got them to do the solves.

I just figured out what exactly what he's testing, and it took me only five seconds, not kidding.

Although, I do not want to spoil his experiment by telling everyone what it is, so if you want to know, finish your solves and message me and I'll tell you if you're curious.

Also, I knew before I even started, so if you would like, you can throw out my data point entirely from the experiment, your choice, just know I will solve to the best of my ability each solve regardless of what I know.

Attached below is a survey (link) that I am trying to use to find out more about how different types of scrambles work on the 3x3 puzzle. By participating, you will be contributing to cubing by helping me to find an answer to my question. Sadly, in order to make sure you aren’t trying to solve differently, I cannot tell you what is happening behind the scenes of this experiment, at least not now. The result of this research project will be released eventually, just not today. If you would like, there is also a chance to win $20 to anyone who participates. Please consider helping me out, I would greatly appreciate it, and you might just help advance times in cubing even farther.

The link is here: https://forms.gle/yTzsiCTvk3ZREsPU8

Thank you.
Mr. Roux can tell us because it might bias our solves.
