    Usually when I think about playing with a Rubik's Cube I end up saying "screw this noise" and read a book or something.

    When I play with one, it either ends with an all red cube, said cube in a million pieces or thru a neighbours window.

    EVIIL POS they are.

    I can solve Rubik's Cubes, but I have no idea how fast I can do it, or even if I can remember how to do it anymore. I did use the same video series as the one the OP posted, though. Very good set of videos.

    my 4x4 is probably 10 minutes

    cubers are actually aliens from a distant world called Cube World. They impress unsuspecting people with their cubing skills and use the cube as a symbolic dressware, which hides the eyeballs on their finger tips. They use the cubes to coordinate their planet wide take over of Sphere World >8D

    I've got a friend who's obsessed with Rubiks cubes. He had an app on his I-phone of a Rubiks cube even.

    My co-worker and I have various competitions. I can cube in about 1 minute 30 seconds, to his 2 minutes. I also usually beat him in UT3 with a kdr of 2. We're about even with AutoCAD. However, he's way better at Photoshop and 3ds Max.

    Guess which of these we get paid for.
