I'm asymptotically approaching 30s average (math humor). I know full OLL and PLL (many PLLs from multiple orientations), I also know a crap load of ZBLS, about 1/3 of MGLS and several dozen special cases for last slot and open slot F2Ls. My look ahead sucks and my finger tricks are crap, I also lose a lot of time transitioning from my cross to F2L. All these things I suck at are more important than memorizing algorithms.
Agreed...I boned up on all the algs early and I don't actually have the skill to recognize or execute anything without these long pauses and such. I totally suck. What is missing is that "year of practice" which I do not have.
