November marks the 25th anniversary of the puzzle that drives many people mad. Yes, I’m talking about the cube with all those pretty colours. The object of the puzzle is to get all six sides of the cube the same colour. So if you’ve been working on this since the day it came out and you still have solved it, you can try your luck at randomly solving it by blind folding yourself and rotating a random side.
I’ve been playing around with the cube since I was in highschool. I found it fascinating that there are 43,252,003,274,489,856,000 possible combinations and yet only one of that combination is the right one. You’ll have better odds at winning the lottery before randomly solving this by chance. A lot of people are amazed when they see this thing solved because they’ve never seen it in person. I was amazed when I first saw my friend solve it. Although I can solve the cube, I never get bored with it. I keep solving it over and over again, juss for fun. Goes to show how much of an exciting life I’m living eh?
For your entertainment, here’s a little video I made to show you that it doesn’t take a lot to solve the cube, featuring Bare Naked Ladies in the background. Mind you, I’m not that fast. The video was compressed to save on download time. I can usually solve the cube within five minutes. I think my fastest time was juss over two minutes.
Edit: Lost the video…
