    I've only got into them recently, and they rock!

    My personal record so far is two minutes...i only learnt how to complete them last week.


    i don't know why i didnt start earlier.


    anyone up for Rubik's?

    I first picked one up a couple months ago. I can solve a regular cube in about a minute and a half. It can be pretty addictive.

    The first time I completed it was on Dec. 31, 1982 or 83. Around one and a half minute was my personal record, but just because I bought a "How-to" manual. I know I'd never be able to do it just by myself.

    You might. I've long forgotten all the patterns I've remembered since then.

    Back in high school you had to be able to solve one to pass 9th grade math class.

    That was 25 something years ago.

    The problem with the bigger ones is that they tend to break easy.

    I figured out how to solve them a year and a half ago, and with multiple daily practice I can solve it in about 35 seconds. Thats not nearly as fast as a lot of people I know either...
     
  15. I was one of the fastest at school for completing the Rubik's cube and snake...
    but I did use the manual!

    I bet you my computer programme I write on the Commodore Vic 20 is better then yours :p

    Now where are my skinny jeans, leg warmers and pixie boots?!

    Do this instead.

    To play, click the blue circle to start.

    The following rules apply:

    • Only 2 persons on the raft at a time.
    • The father cannot stay with any of the daughters, without their mother's presence.
    • The mother cannot stay with any of the sons, without their father's presence.
    • The thief (striped shirt) cannot stay with any family member, if the Policeman is not there.
    • Only the Father, the Mother and the Policeman know how to operate the raft.

    To move the people, click on them. To move the raft, click on the pole on the opposite side of the river. The solution is possible! THIS IS NOT A TRICK!
