So I've recently learned how to solve a Rubik's Cube, and i wondered how many Pitmonkeys would have learnt how to do the same thing? Also, answer the poll with your best time, if you can do it.

Edit: my best time is between two and three minutes, timing with a computer clock.

I've been wanting to learn how to do these mo'fo's for ages. Can someone explain how you do it please?

i dont quite know what it is, but i assume it involves plenty of harpsichord solos and medieval chanting.

I can solve 'em, they aren't as hard as they look

No, I agree. One you get the method, it's really simple.

It would take too long in text, just look it up on youtube or something.

Around a minute-ish for me.

I think my best was 54 seconds.

A few years a ago, I played with it a lot and got my time down to 42 secs. Right now, I'm probably around a 55 sec average.
grok it.

Wow, I haven't played with one in a while but it was like a huge fad at high school couple years ago. My best was about 56 seconds.

It probably is. I'd imagine someone who devotes most of their time to practicing solving rubik's cubes doesn't have much time for wanking.

it takes like a half hour to learn, and about an hour to memorize all the algorithms and solve it.

It really doesn't take long, unless you have the mental capacity of a sheep, or need extra time for masturbating due to using your feet.

I assumed if he is great with rubix cubes he would rarely get sex.

Unless some ladies now like guys who can complete rubix cubes in under a minute?

I haven't solved one in a while, but I could pick it up again.

I also have the 4X4X4 model (that I can solve) and the 5X5X5 model that I haven't the guts to try and even mess up, let alone learn how to solve...

I used to get in the 40-seconds. I haven't done it in a while though and I'm sure my time has dropped.

I only solved it by moving the stickers. I graduated high school with a D in maths.

My fastest time that I've recorded is 1:45, however I'm sure I've done it much faster when I wasn't timing myself.
#35
I can, and my fastest was about 2 minutes.

I forgot how to do the last layer down to switching the edges though..
For real.
#36
I can't, and wouldn't want to learn, because I know what it is. It's just memorizing a bunch of algorithms for getting a specific piece to a specific place, and I dislike memorizing.

I know a guy who can finish one in about a minute though. Scary to see him do it, he just uses the tips of his fingers to quickly snap the pieces around. Pretty sure he can do it with one hand too, though it takes him longer.
#37
Points to sig

I could go faster but I lost my cube and dont feel like buying another. I was addicted to the thing. I played with it at least 1.5 hours EVERYDAY
#38
I can do it in about 10 minutes after just getting one for Christmas.
A kid in my school does it in 30 seconds, and my best friend does it in 3 minutes
#39
I can do 2/3 of the cube in under 2 minutes. The last layer I still need a cheat-sheet for, and it still takes a while. I voted under 30 min.
#40
What's the point of looking up the algorithm?

I figured out how to do the top and I can almost get the second row.
