for the rubik's cube you need to do the top level while the first frow of the sides at the same time then the second row of the sides and then the third row whil doing the bottom. i know how to do the first two rows on the siide though i can never get the third, though i finished once

hahahaha wow ive never done a rubiks cube is it everything i've dreamed of? we should start an online competition see if anyone can beat the fastest time then we can give away golden pocket protectors to the winners and maybe if they are really fast we can find a girl who will actually talk to them. hey hold on thats mean not everyone who times themselves at "cubing" are nerds, are they?

God I'm old

I remember when these came out first time round. It was invented by a Hungarian, not surprisingly called Rubic.

The way we used to solve the puzzle was complete a face, then the middle band. Next was to get a '+' on the bottom and finally fill in the 4 corners.

I've got a feeling I used to be able to complete it in around 90 - 120 seconds but I can't remember exactly.

However, the record was around 20 seconds and it was solved in a different way to the one I used. I don't know what it was and I didn't really care. I was happy that I could solve it and then make patterns.

yeah, it's not too hard if you break it down and do it the slow way. there's a lot faster ways to do it, but i don't really care to learn them. it's enough for me that i even figured it out to begin with

hey how many squares does you rubiks cube have? You can get 3x3x3 but I had a 4x4x4 one once. They are so much harder.
