In conclusion (just so we can get back on topic), most 12 year olds have the same maturity level as a 13 year old, and most teenage cubers, regardless of age, have an extremely high maturity level, such as myself (I am 13). I'd say thats pretty accurate.

So, now that I know Java, which should I learn next:
C++ or Python?
C++ is very similar to Java, so I'd say learn C++ first.

There is literally a comp on by birthday (Berkeley Summer 2016, but I can't go because I'm busy:(
I can't go either. :(

BTW does anybody know why there hasn't been a Stanford comp in a while? BASC is done and I can't go to Berkeley comps even though they are pretty near.

That's weird. What is weirder is there are currently no nearby competitions anytime soon in Southern California. Usually theres one every month or even two, but nope, there's none.

I would also like to know that. I have a speedcubing club in school and I could probably get a venue somewhere on campus.

How do you organize a competition?
I haven't organised one (yet!), but I think the 2 most important things are having a venue that is preferably free to use and large enough to house all the competitors and their families, and having enough volunteers to help with registration, judging, scrambling, running, etc.

David isn't really interested in traveling for competitions anymore. You can ask, and he might do ST. Louis, but don't count on it. Shaden and or Walker will come down (bringing the equipment you need) if you provide lodging, money for wear and tear on the equipment, and travel reimbursement. I'm also going to be buying a large amount of equipment soon that I can bring.
