Default Rubiks cubes

My friend taught me how to solve a cube with the basic method and its pretty addictive. I have nearly optimized my performance with that method. I can solve a cube in like a minute and 40 seconds. I have been cubing for about a week.

I know theres gotta be mad awesome cubers on this website.

Lets talk about rubiks cubes.

We have a person in FFR that can solve a rubik's cube in 1 minute, blindfolded
We all refer to him as "the rubix guy"

My fastest solve was using the Petrus method (about 32 seconds)...this was in high school and I forgot how to do it. Fridrich method was what I first learned...I'm slow now because I don't practice it...Probably can only solve in about 40-50 seconds on average.

I use a half-assed Friedrick method for timed things. Never managed to break a 25 second average. Just messing around I like the roux method because I like watching M slice moves.

I find solving twisty puzzles relaxing especially ones that just take some time to place the pieces like the face turning octohadron, pyraminx crystal and flower rex.

Timed myself 10 runs about a year ago using layer-by-layer (beginner) method and averaged about 50 seconds. Was always too lazy to sit down and actually learn Fredreich.

Used to be pretty fast (personal best for a single solve I think was like 15-16s sighted), but it was like over a decade ago -- I probably suck now.

Haven't had the slightest inkling to get back into it. I feel like once you get past certain barriers, getting faster requires exponentially more memorization -- which is time that I'd rather devote to other hobbies.

Actually I remember having a lot of fun with the Mirror Cube, if anyone's ever tried one. It's like a cube with no colors -- each piece is a different size. I remember leonid solving one I think.

edit: Yeah, this one -- I guess it's called Mirror Blocks, my bad:

2-look OLL/PLL is a tasty way to get faster without having to memorize 157 algorithms.
