Ok so you know the memorisation technique letter pairs, and how it creates sentences so you can memorise letters, yeah? For optimisation, loads of those sentences are completely banannas, and I thought it would be fun to create a thread about it.

I'll go first, during a 6 edges practise seesion, I got LiQuefy MineCraft - Nooooo UK!!! Also, KiM TAlks to JoE (extension is-WheN TurnStile hits.)
Try using the sentences on friends and family, and then watch them go 'WHAT?' 'Oh, its just my BLD memorisation technique.' 'WHAT THE HECK ARE U TALKING ABOUT?'
Plus, you can talk about letter pairs you want a specific word for here. I recently decided to swap X on my speffz with Y, to make it easier to come up with stuff, by the way.

I don't do Bld but I would like to learn how, even without actually solving it blindfolded.

Ok, I had one that I was doing edges on (the solve wasn't a success in the end in case you're wondering :( ), and I had Q F G U F N T, so it ended up saying IP: don't be a QFGUFN'T. It works (I think) so I use it now

What do you mean by learning how to do it, without doing it? If you want to learn, just go to ruwix's page on how to solve the cube blindfolded. (Old Pochmann). And watch J Perm's videos on it as well.

My brother came up with High Voltage Dangerous Underwater Electric Ferret just now by the way :)

Unlucky :(. It's so annoying sometimes when you think you've got it, then take your blindfold off, and find out you screwed up your memo somehow, and can't work out how. (I don't use specific scrambles)

I just got FiSh's UDder's MaC can Note Records.

ikr I'm pretty new to blind only been seriously doing it for 2 days. Only have one success. I've had a lot of those where I forget one letter or I forget about a flipped edge. The good thing is I'm so close on a lot of them.

And lol nice memo.

Yeah, same with me! Although I haven't even started combining edges and corners together.

I meant learning the method, but not necessarily solving it with a blindfold. But I think that can wait till at least after full pll.

Not really a sentence but I was once trying to show my mom I could solve it blindfolded and while executing corners I said "sh*t I went to McDonald's instead of Burger King" because I had started solving the letter pair MD instead of BK

Let's just say she got confused haha
XD that is so amazing!

Reading your post just made me realise that I’m not using Speffz. My EFGH is on the front face. Whoops.
I got YaVin 4’s WD40 Assault Rifles Can LaP, auNTie.

Yeah, I learnt from speedcubereview.com and he uses EFGH on the front face too and I can't be bothered to relearn it.

I argued for EFGH on the front face when Ville first presented Speffz, but I lost that argument. :) I use EFGH on front as well; I learned it that way before Speffz existed, and couldn't be bothered to relearn it either.

Edit: Someone asked about the history on this - here's the thread where this was all decided, for historical reference. Sorry, some of the diagrams have been lost along the way (probably due to problems introduced when updating the site), so sometimes it's hard to tell what order we're referring to, but you can still make out a lot of the argument from the text:
