Those little bastard cubes that you have to be a genius to solve? Not so. Just takes a little practice. I mean, if I can do it, anyone should be able to.

This is me solving a cube, from a while back:


This is where I learned how. There are faster ways, such as the Petrus method, but this method (the layer by layer way) is by far the easiest.
Part 1:

Part 2:


Have fun.

It took me about a week of practicing a few hours each day to get it. So in total, probably between 10 and 15 hours.

Also, I just noticed that I misspelled Petrus as Petro in my original post. I will fix that.

Depends on the chick. It impresses some, turns off others. You gotta know the crowd you're trying to please.

It does seem to always impress kids, though. Not that such a thing is hard to do. Kids are stupid.
