Well, at least very possibly not age appropriate! To explain, when at school, in the 6th form, I became enmeshed in the whole Rubiks Cube thing that was then kicking off. And recently found an old cube and started noodling around again. I seem to recall being able to average just over a minute in my hey day - and after a bit of practice, I'm surprised to find I'm already close to that again. But things have moved on in the cubing world, in those intervening few decades - the world record is now 5.55 seconds, and the top people can even average under ten seconds. The dexterous finger work is something to behold. So, obviously having too much time on my hands, I have set myself a goal of getting so I can consistently solve the thing in under a minute. To which end, I have just ordered a special new Shengshou Aurora speed cube (I kid you not - there is a whole world of different cube models, specially designed for speed-solving, mind you, only 5.99 + p&p ] and am embarking on learning the favoured "Friedrich Method" which involves learning a whole load of algorithms (sequences of moves) to shorten the number of moves needed. Here, for your possible amusement, is the current world record average run of 5 cube solves (I believe they take the middle 3 times, and discard the fastest and slowest): And so, having blown any remaining credibility, I leave you with that, except to ask if anyone else might care to admit to an embarrassing (keep it clean!) hobby?
