    It's been a while, but I'm sure I can still do

    it. Maybe even faster now. As I recall, you turn the top face a quarter turn , then using a flat screwdriver, pop out anyone of the 4 center squares along the edge , prying against the dead center one below it. The rest can be taken apart by hand. Before putting it back together...

    My cousin, who's 13, brought one over when we had a family reunion thing. Second time of meeting him. We spent all evening looking over this article on Wikipedia, trying to figure out what all the weird letters meant! Without any success, by the way. Being slightly autistic, and...

    It's Actually Really Easy...

    I can solve a rubik's cube in about 40 seconds or so. People think it's amazing but to be honest as soon as you know how to do it, it's one the easiest things ever, as soon as you learn you'll be like "how the hell was that complicated?"

    In About 2 Minutes

    I learned the absolute bare minimum of moves to do it, so it's not fast but always works...I can also do the 4x4x4 (revenge) and 5x5x5 (professor's cube) too, although they take a bit longer.

    I solve when I'm particularly stressed. It has a way of bringing a calm over me. It focuses my attention and slows troubling thoughts. By the time I solve it, my stress is just a memory.

    Just a recent interest I have developed.

    I solved the 3x3 and it just wasn't enough so I had to solve bigger cubes. I ordered cubes of different sized all the way from 2x2 till 10x10... solved them all. :)

    Not Hard

    I got my first Rubik's Cube my freshman year of high school. Some might say I am addicted to them (I've worn out 2, almost 3 from solving them so much). My record solve is 30.94 seconds, set one day in pre-calc during my junior year.
