Rubik's Cube, anyone?

Here's a truly fun question!
Or a few!
How many of you have ever tried to solve the damn thing?
How many of you have solved the damn thing?
How many got pissed and threw it at the wall, or out the window, or somewhere else?
I have never had the patience to figure the damn thing out, either. But it's a great way to pass the time at work in between calls, lol. The down times are so BORING!
I got part of it solved and the funniest part is, I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW I DID IT!!! I just looked at it, and realized, holy crap!!! I did it!
And how many don't know what this is?

  • I attempted....I failed...I threw it at the floor...I kicked it...I picked it back up and tried again...I failed...again...I threw it...again...then I took off the damn stickers and "solved" it that way! Then I watched my uncle solve it in 2 minutes flat. I simply walked away from him before I shoved that freaking cube down his throat!

  • You forget to ask what my brother and I did because we were about to throw it out the window.
    How many of you have taken a scredriver, popped it apart and put it back together solved?

    How many of you painstakingly removed all the stickers and super glued them back on only to find out that you could have popped it apart with a screwdriver?
    lol

  • LMAO! I wasn't going to admit to ripping the stickers off and gluing them back on until I read Gigi's post! I actually did that once. My husband was so mad because I finished mine and he didn't! And no, I never told him. The sooner he figures out that I am superior in all ways, the better.

  • Back in my HS Days I was lucky to solve it a few times. The fastest I was able to solve 2-3 times took me an hour and like I said that was a lucky time. Most of the time it took a few hours to solve it.


    Now you will be amaze on how fast these kids can solve it. My son who loves this hobby can do it both one-handed like in this video that is featured in the Firefox Channel

    and on a recent blindfolded event which he brought home a bronze medal

    Now they don't only have the Original Rubik's Cube which you will here cubers referring it to a 3x3 to solve but a bunch of bigger more complicated cubes.
