The thread for ̶e̶a̶s̶y̶ ̶s̶a̶d̶ ̶f̶a̶c̶e̶ ̶r̶e̶a̶c̶t̶i̶o̶n̶ ̶p̶o̶i̶n̶t̶s̶ fails including singles, averages, pops and anything else.

I've ruined 3 sub-10s with bad last layers

2 move cross+1, good lookahead in F2L into A DOT CASE (I don't know full OLL), then a PLL skip. 10.xx (can't remember exactly what it was)

3 move planned eocross, insane lookahead and tps during f2l, sune, into... an E perm, which I recognised straight away. Luckily, I was training my PLL's early and had been practicing my E perm! But... during the second-last move, I had a pop. I fixed it quickly but still a 17.

4 move planned eocross, 3 free pairs, sune, in 8 seconds:

Omae wa mou shindeiru

Na perm, one of the only 3 PLLs I can't sub-2:

A red-green-white corner piece of your first cube
4x4 PB fail

I was in the middle of oll and I had to do parity but I messed it up so I had to do edge pairing again. Then when I did f2l I realized I didn't do the last 2 edges so I did the alg, failed yet again.
Then I had to do edge pairing AGAIN, did parity correctly this time but got a v perm.

Ended up 2:40 or something.

This one time, I ate a cake, but then realized that it hadn't been baked in the oven yet. It looked pretty UNSUSPECTING, but I guess this CAKE gave me FOOD POISONING. Moral of the Story: Always check to be sure that your cake is COOKED before you EAT it.

I got a good FMC PB 2 years ago (35 moves), and it seemed fine, but when I checked the solution a few months later, I found that I had written the wrong moves and it didn't end up solved. Then I had to change my PB to a verified solution. :(

EDIT: In case you were wondering, the cake is a lie.
