Claim to Fame: Guimond Method

Gaétan Guimond is a Canadian-French speedcuber from Montreal, Quebec. He is best known for his mysterious videos with footages from "The Good, The Bad and the Ugly," his broken English (he is a native French speaker), and his claim that "[his] name is nobody." His posts on the Speedsolving Forums are frequently followed by the reply, "I love you."

He invented the Guimond Method for 2x2.

Gaétan claims to be the first human to have solved a cube blindfolded. However, this claim is disputed.

  • "Marijuana (grass, pot, weed) is the common name for a crude drug made from the plant Cannabis sativa. The main mind-altering (psychoactive) ingredient in marijuana is THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), but more than 400 other chemicals also are in the plant. A marijuana "joint" (cigarette) is made from the dried particles of the plant. The amount of THC in the marijuana determines how strong its effects will be. The type of plant, the weather, the soil, the time of harvest, and other factors determine the strength of marijuana. The strength of today's marijuana is as much as ten times greater than the marijuana used in the early 1970s." [8]
