Rubik’s

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could switch out your brain periodically, to see what it’s like to think differently?

Check out this kid, for example. Solving a Rubik’s cube while blindfolded.

What kind of mad genius sh*t is this?  And here are others who can do the same thing.

I don’t mind lacking a physics/engineering/programming/math/techie/spatial relations sort of brain, but it’d be neat to understand it all just once.

  1. see? im a geek, and all of that is hot to me. if u can solve the above equation or the cube , ur hot.

  2. Kurlykolly, I am probably the most unattractive person in the world to you. I got a 2 on my AP Calculus exam, cheated my way through Physics (twice), and once spent an hour unpeeling and re-sticking the stickers on a Rubik’s Cube in order to “solve” it. My apologies . . .

    This is your girl:

  3. God doesn’t give from both hands, and this kid doesn’t look like a cartoon geek, so there has to be a catch. I’m guessing this kid can’t tie his shoes, has no taste buds, or is growing a twin from his hip. Something….

  4. You can’t see it, but under the table he has 8 tentacles, like an octopus. I did think that was a little strange, but found the blindfolded Rubik’s Cube solving more interesting.

  5. @Emmie…

    My “cheat” only took maybe 2mins. You pry a cube out & then re-assemble. Done.

    I was only able to do 3 sides the legit way. Apparently, there are “patterns” and algorithms that can be used to solve.

    YMMV.
    Good Luck!! 8-D

  6. Dude, Bond, you’re assuming that I’m able to put the cube back together. Please refer to Comment 2.

    Thanks very much for the suggestion, though.
