# Rubik's Cube

I'm a big Rubik's cube fan. I made my own solution but is only in Slovene language:

Wow, that's really good. It usually takes me about an hour just for one side! I've seen those speed videos before and it's absolutely amazing.

83 Seconds, good job! Seems like a cool trick to show off to people

wow 89 seconds?
That's amazing.

I had never successed in completing even one cube...

I always cheated and ripped the stickers off and moved them around.....

I remember when Rubik's Cube was a big fad, and they always showed people who "solved" the puzzle in very short times.

The thing that I would like to know, however, is what is the actual record for SOLVING Rubik's cube, not just for completing the puzzle when you already know the solution. Those people they used to show were not SOLVING the puzzle: they had already learned the method for completing it (either by truly solving it on their own or finding out from another source), and were only performing what amounts to a number of mechanical actions.

Sure, it was still impressive that they were able to do so in so short a time, but the person who would receive my genuine respect is the one who had NEVER seen the Cube before, was told the object of the puzzle, then received a scrambled Cube and solved and completed it in record time.

I have a friend who does it in under 1 minute, but he has a technique which he studied ... I think you can find it on the internet... You just have to be patient !

Is it me or did the rubiks cube come back?
Yeah but My calculus teacher made us buy rubiks cubes to solve for a class assignment. I got to finishing the cube just under 5 mins. Yeah Its pretty fun to solve when you got the formulas down but it gets really frustrating when you start

I can do the cube in under 5 minutes everytime. I use a technique I learned from a friend. It's definitely no speed cubing...those guys are ridiculous! It's amazing how many different pieces they're thinking about and moving at once. There are a lot of good videos on the internet that show speed cubers. They're all doing it in like 20 seconds! I can't believe it sometimes.

I remember the Cube from when I was a kid. I haven't seen one in a while, but it's still popular I believe. It took me a while to solve it the first time. I remember that one of my friends came to school and solved it in a few minutes which amazed everyone.

There were even some books out which taught you to solve it, so from then on people could really learn how to do it. With the Internet you don't even need a book anymore.

After reading this I'd like to give it a bash again, especially when I'm travelling or waiting in the car.

Is there not a general solution? I didnt know that there were different "problems" with the cubes, just thought that it was a lot of different combinations, but generally working in the same way. Please explain a bit more as to how these different ways of scrambling the cube work?

Thats a really great record! I've never in my life solved one. My best was getting three sides but that was the best I could get. I hope I can solve it oneday!

Thats a really cool record!
