More competitors = more success and dedication?
I make no claims about success and dedication, only about the number of country-related stats on the WCA site.

Oh gosh.... Someone needs to start a series where they find everything wrong with cubing articles from non-cubing sites and sources.
*cue announcer voice* Well then you should check out the Dlsone Podcast for your monthly fix of cubing failures in the news!

But yeah, that last sentence is amazing. Such copy-pasting, lol.

Found in an article covering Felik's WR.

"If Zemdeg’s mind-blowing performance has got you wondering how exactly do you go about solving the puzzle, scientists have created an algorithm that will help you do it – n²/log n, where n represents the length of any of the cube’s sides. The equation represents the maximum number of moves from every possible starting configuration."

Who needs the Sune and T-perm when simply subbing your cube dimensions into n²/log n will solve all your cubing woes .

To be fair though, after some brief research this equation does seem to be related to finding the upper/lower bounds for God's Number, so that likely led to the misunderstanding on their part.

Can't knock a PB under pressure. What's a punter BTW?

In American football, you have 4 attempts (called downs) to reach a certain position on the field, and repeat until you score if you keep reaching that field position. That position advances everytime you reach it, by 10 yards. If by the 4th attempt you have not reached that field position, most often it is advantageous to kick (punt) the ball far down field to the other team, as opposed to trying and failing, so that when the other team gets the ball, they will have to advance through more field to score. The person who kicks it is the punter.

Is that all he does? No wonder he has time to cube

It's the cushiest job in football. Not to mention that if a defensive player touches the punter (unless they try a fake to get the first down) it's a penalty 9/10 times. Punters (and kickers, which are slightly different, and sometimes the same person) are not the slam against each other till someone falls down that most non-fans think of when they see american football. It is much more than that though.

I was really confused when I saw this title in the recent posts
Until I saw the pic lol.

A really clickbait video that is pretty popular
