The Return Of Rubik's Cube
from the too-dorky-to-describe dept
When I was a kid, I was one of millions who had a Rubik’s cube, though, I never got all that good at it. I could solve it, but it would take a lot of time and a lot of trial and error. I thought that the fad had died, but apparently Rubik’s cubes are making a comeback. They’re even having a “speedcubing” contest for the first time in 21 years, and speedcubers from around the globe are gearing up – including buying up special Rubik’s cubes and lubricating them (no, seriously) to make them faster. The reporter treats the subject respectfully for the most part, but can’t help cracking a few jokes in the middle of the article, describing videos of speedcubers as “almost too dorky to describe” and then admitting: “A world-class speedcuber’s skills are a wonder to behold, if you can suppress the urge to chuck an eraser at his head.”

I could do it in three minutes. And that was after I lubricated my ‘cube with vasaline.
Re: Three Minutes.
don’t lubricate it with vasaline..
if you want to make it faster and improve your time then use silicone spray (the non-oil based ones)..
take apart all the pieces then spray 2 times on each cube (make sure you line them up so you just spray back and forth)..
i’ve tried vasaline before and it got faster but then i used silicone spray and it was really fast..
PS: don’t use too much spray or it’ll get worse.
