I mean, obviously we're proud of cracking sub 10, sub 15, sub 20, nailing a BLD, winning a comp, and the like. But, what about the related achievements? For example, how many people have you taught or tutored to solve? How much free crap have you gotten from cubing? What's the most bizarre/hilarious form of multitasking you've been able to achieve while speedsolving? So on, so forth.

I remember when I had trouble solving the 2x2 while holding my breath... Now I can solve the 3x3 fairly easily while holding my breath. Not 4x4 yet though

also, so far I have taught 6 people how to solve the cube, and 3 of them know 4LLL

Hmm, I don't think I've actually achieved anything good in cubing apart from 2x2 and 3x3 unofficial PBs -.-

Oh wait, I think I discovered this f2l alg: F' R U R' U' R' F R. That's it.

I got free breakfast once from a bet with a manager at a Waffle House, saved 8 dollars.


Oh, and I learned a few algorithms here and there.

I learned how to make a dragon, christmas star and a turtle with the art of origami.

I also finished my cross stitiching project :D

Thread title?
Ah, sorry I read it wrong. :eek:

I would have to say when I was cubing in a restaurant and people gave me compliments which made me feel good inside. Mmm. shallow.

But still, my origami dragon is pretty impressive.
