They go to a good school
Not sure there are many kids in the second category. Kids basically want to be as fast as possible, and when they can't improve anymore, they get bored and stop. The people who keep on cubing while staying slow are mostly grown-ups who don't care much about speed (or have no time to practice really hard) and cube and go to comps mainly for the fun of it."
"Do they just get super fast or stop cubing?"
- This is a pointless question, every individual will approach this differently. Some continue and get faster, some tapper off and stay around the same speed or get slower, and some stop cubing all together.
True enough. One major disadvantage though...hardly any free time!!I guess they quit and come back at a much older age. Age does have its advantages.
Not requiring parental consent to go to competitions
More money to spend on puzzles and so you can build a puzzle collection
Much more able to attend major competitions (ie world Titles, etc)
Access to online sites by having your own debit/credit card
Your naïveté is showing! When people get older, they get jobs, families, and other responsibilities to worry about. For most people, this absorbs a lot of their daily life. As much as I hope to never stop cubing (until I get arthritis or something) I would not be surprised if I have to cut down once these other things settle in.Why would you have no free time?
Uh huh, my cube collection goes to whichever of my children is fastest. (They compete for each individual cube/puzzle... get 3 tries on it and the fastest time is the winner.) This is all going to be written down in my will...Unfortunately you even have to plan for that, when you have family
