WV alg for gun (sides(idk of this is common knowledge))
(U) F’ R U2 R’ U2 R’ F R
The other alg on jperms site is trash compared to this. It’s just insert * pi

I was casually solving a 3x3. At the end of the solve, I got the N perm. I proceeded to immediately scramble the cube. At the end of my second solve, I again got an the N perm. I scrambled the cube right away like in the previous solve. On my 3rd solve, I once again got the N perm. At this point I was really scared that I will need to buy a new cube to get rid of this issue. I scrambled the cube to see how high my streak of bugged N perms will continue. I was not surprised during the fourth solve, which obviously ended with the N perm, that I once again refused to solve. Unfortunately I couldn't pull of a whole average of 5 as the last solve resulted in the R perm.

Do you also have any mysterious stories related to cubing?

cool

for me...
I started cubing in 2010, and never got LL skip when timing
only when casual solving like 5 or 6 times

I had 6 CMLL skips in one session of approx. 60 solves the other day - 4 of them in a row and 1 about 3 solves after I go through some streaks of getting the same CMLL multiple times in a row too - just the way it goes sometimes

My last-5 PB ao5's were all full-step solves. I'm incapable of getting lucky.

The probability of 4 N perms in a row is (2/72)^4 or 0.00006%. Very impressive.

One time I got 5 v-perms in a row! Lol

One time I got 3 pll skips in a row. But I was not timing myself...

I once got 5 U Perms in a row.

But different COLL cases, 3 different cases.

I also think that I get the same PLL in a row quite more often than mathematics would tell.
I never had 6 but 3 or 4 in a row.

Maybe one explanation is that you don't count the first one if you don't wait for a specific pll. So 3 in a row is more like 2 if you don't wait for a specific pll. But with 5 or 6 this effect is not so big anymore.

One strange thing for me: all my PB are foll step.
Every time i get a skip, I've made some mistakes or a very bad F2L earlier in the solve and already lost the time that I save from the skip

I think this is pretty normal - whenever I get step skips (I'm using Roux - generally CMLL skip) it totally screws with me and it often takes 2 or 3 seconds to realize why I can't recognise the case Looking at my spreadsheet, of my 20 best times only two (PB3 and PB5) have a CMLL skip, the rest are all full step.

If you are doing COLL, then it is not lucky.

Getting U perms in a row has more odds.

throughout the month of May I was absolutely on fire for LL skips. Normally I get around1/300 but for that month it damn near cut in half to about 1/145.

I handscrambled the same scramble 3 times in a row

That is not very uncommon, since your hand will get used to a certain pattern, so you get the same scramble multiple times.
