Okay. I'll follow you to a comp. And I'll leave everyone else alone. But when YOU go to do a solve, I'll bring in a industrial fan and blast it in your face starting when inspection starts. I think that might change your mind.I disagree. He did not use the raft to help him solve the cube, it just changed his environment. That would be like listening to music while at a comp; it is not directly helping you solve, but it modified your environment so that you can concentrate. As well as whether you stand or sit while solving at a comp.Yea, I'd have to agree.I'll post it here instead so I don't hijack the other thread.
Sorry. As a cuber who has solved a cube in freefall, I don't consider your solve as beating Dan Knights. As you said, you were sitting in a boat which cut out a lot of wind resistance. It's easy to tell how much easier it was for you to solve the cube than it was for either me, Jimmy or Dan. In order to hold the UWR I would require that you freefall (solo or tandem) with just a parachute and the reserve and no tools can be used to assist you with your solve (in your case, the boat). But that's just me.
Dan Knights, Jimmy Coll and I did true free fall solves without any outside assistance. So far, I would say that we are the only three cubers eligible for the UWR.
Either way, congratulations on your solve. It looks like you had fun.
He was in freefall while the cube was solved, and that is what the record is for.
