    This is what I like with wired. They actually have a proper look into how cubing works, and doesn’t just look at the first result on Google like mainstream media. Great vid ☺️

    I’m happy to see such a well put together video about cubing in mainstream media. I feel like this video really covered all the important points pertaining to speed cubing in an easy to understand fashion. well done

  23. Pranshu y

    May 24, 2019 at 4:54 pm

    Honestly its just some algorithms and moves, it isn’t as hard as people think it is. One year of practising and i was able to solve it in under a minute.

  24. KITRONIX111

    May 24, 2019 at 4:55 pm

    My record is 10 seconds (Super lucky scramble) but average 18 seconds. When I saw the 5 second record I though that was it but now it’s a 3.4 seconds?!?! Madness ?

  25. Mindlesscargo

    May 24, 2019 at 4:55 pm

    Any Rubik’s cube is solvable within 10 moves. But it will almost certainly never be possible to do it

  26. Trawgic

    May 25, 2019 at 4:05 pm

    When I learned to solve my cube I never thought it was about so many algorithms

  27. GD Tim

    May 25, 2019 at 4:38 pm

    Solving a rubicks cube is as simple as memorizing a few moves. Solving it fast means spending more and more on a new and faster cube. I had a room mate once that would spend hundreds of dollars on different cubes so he could shave a couple seconds off his times. Ridiculous. Lol

    • jordan secrist

      May 25, 2019 at 4:40 pm

      I think my fastest time ever was 7 seconds. But that was a fluke. Usually it would take me a 30-60 seconds.

    Anonymous is for the purpose of facilitating human trafficking by confusing people about who to trust, and whether or not they should be disguising themselves.

    Don’t call it hacktivism anymore. Positive phonetic association that’s it.

    Opera was right. Wasn’t a prank. Just a symbol to confuse people and it’s worked. Most people wouldn’t know human trafficking isn’t a hobby. Just tell them to throw the mask out. No one needs to kill themselves with criticism.

    You shouldn’t believe there’s a reason to display things that are misleading and potentially harmful on tv. The authorities seriously don’t have every single corner covered.

    Not all methods use algorithms. Many use commutators and conjugates- that’s how non-wca puzzlers come up with original solutions to puzzles they’ve never seen before, and how blind solvers do their thing (although blind solving with algs is much faster.)

    Except that it’s bollocks and you need to modify your statement to a much weaker position. It is perfectly possible to solve it in under 3 seconds. If you set a CPU to randomly scramble the cube – there will be multiple instances (i.e. a handful of the billion possibilities) which are so simple to solve, it will take but a moment. It’s fair because a computer randomly scrambled it, you just have to be on that lucky streak…
