I know this was awhile ago, but coming across it again with 10 million views makes me so annoyed.Fake but cool I guess
I don't necessarily think it's a bad thing, as in, what bad is it doing?I know this was awhile ago, but coming across it again with 10 million views makes me so annoyed.
He does T-perms over and over to show off his fake TPS skills!!! (He used CFOP if you haven't realised)
That doesn't require skill to memorise a sequence of moves that he pre-scrambled and in the middle spam a bunch of t-perms that do nothing to the cube.
Even the dumbest of non-cubers could do that.
He doesn't deserve all that fame
Yeah, I guess that's true.I don't necessarily think it's a bad thing, as in, what bad is it doing?
The thing is, knowing how to solve a Rubik's cube on its own is an amazing feat, blindfolded or not, if you can do it, you should be commended.
Besides, this is all about drawing attention to the cubing community as a whole, and for that, he has done a stunning job. If someone joins the cubing community and finds out it's fake, no harm done.
Yeah, but there's where he could've done something different, like a 3 cube relay or one cube blindfolded or an OH relay. He didn't really need to lie to the audience about what he was doing.It is completely unfeasible to a legitimate 3 cube MBLD on stage, it would take way too long. You'll even notice one of the judges say "I don't know how you memorised all those moves" which shows even though it might not be legitimate, it is still impressive.
Anyone without some serious problem can solve a rubik's cube, it's not something you should win a participation medal for.The thing is, knowing how to solve a Rubik's cube on its own is an amazing feat, blindfolded or not, if you can do it, you should be commended.
I fully support this idea. I expect my cake at Slow N Steady Fall to be vanilla cake with Peanut Butter frostingAnyone without some serious problem can solve a rubik's cube, it's not something you should win a participation medal for.
Suggestion: Maybe we should give this out at every competition to everyone who doesn't win
Very true, but just remember, to the 90% of society that can't solve it, it is one of the most difficult puzzles they've ever come across. I'm sure the first time you picked up a cube without looking at anything you didn't start doing perfect layer-by-layer and call it "easy". It's only "easy" because somebody else with the time helped you to learn how to solve it, unless you worked it out on your own, in which case, goddam that should be commended...Anyone without some serious problem can solve a rubik's cube, it's not something you should win a participation medal for.
“I still don’t get it. I’ve only ever solved one by pulling off the stickers,” Mr Pelham said.http://www.themercury.com.au/lifestyle/youtube-tutes-help-hobart-speedcubing-champ-george-pelham-master-rubiks-method/news-story/5b76cbcad432fc3697d69e0e2a1a7394

Lol, they tie with us."I am especially pleased that Chinese Cubers are among the most dedicated and successful in this global community."
Maybe as far as manufacturing goes...
World records in x events which is an idiotic way to rank countries since the Chinese community hasn't been around nearly as long as most of the countries in that list.Lol, they tie with us.
Also, what are those statistics specifically for? Cos they wouldn't just be "dedicated and successful countries"
