A recent Mythbusters episode shows someone solving a cube briefly. It was the pain tolerance/propane tank boom episode.
Aww, in the episode they showed us in class they had a flashback to that episode. I want to see it now.


Also, why was it showing that? Was it the pain in your fingers after using a storebought for a couple of hours?

I fail to understand what you just said... my store bought is almost as good as my F-II.

To be completely the honest the only reason a DIY is better than a storebought is because you can adjust the centercaps on a DIY...

There was a 3x3x3 image in a presentation by our charmain / CEO last Tuesday.
What made it more fun is that I had been cubing in the bus that brought us to the hotel where the presentation was. Some some collegues spotted the cube too and mentioned to me on the way back.

Today, my parents were watching a Chinese TV show and told me to come watch. The show invited Haiyan Zhuang, Shenjia Zhang, Yumu Tabuchi, and another Chinese guy and girl.
Shenjia, Yumu, and the other guy had some solves around 10-13 seconds. The girl solved it in 51 seconds. Yumu had a 1:20 foot solve and 18s OH solve.
Haiyan had a 51s DNF and a 27.88 BLD solve.
Then they showed off various other puzzles including the megaminx and sq-1 variations. Overall, it was well done and quite entertaining, but probably would not bring me back to cubing any time soon.
