Depends on how mixed up it is.

Good answer! Say, I can't believe you still don't have a single, solitary, lonely rec. yet. Here you go!

EDIT: Hey, what ever happened to that book full of puzzles that you were braggin' up?

I can solve the cube under 2 mins, no matter how mixed up it is.

there is an official amount of "mixed". I think it's 9 or 12 or something from the starting position. I don't have time to look it up. They use that standard for competition. I've never learned to do it, but a friend would sit in class and show off all the time, solving it in as little as 45 seconds.

I told him I'd really be impressed if he could juggle 3 while solving each one.

The world record is 11.36 or something like that. Usually a little over a minute for me.

Maybe if he threw each one very high (calculated this to be 493 mph straight up before it comes back down 45 seconds later, not taking into account wind resistance or changes in gravity with altitude, reaching a height of approx 2480 metres).

Then he would have time to solve each rubik's cube. ðŸ™‚

depends on how fast I can cleanly peel the stickers off and restick them

Thank you so much, I about fell out of my chair here as my number hopped form 0 to 2...I'm in, I'm popular now, thank you.

Believe it or not, I have actually been watching daily for something to post just for you, it has become a little side challenge for me, a bug in my head, (or pain in my *ss, don't know,) but I will find something for you. I figure if I can solve it, it won't do for posting.

In short, have not forgotten, and am still working on.

Thanks again LS, for the recs.

obviously he would have to do each one a little at a time until all three were solved.

Took me about 2 months of practice and reading about the techniques before I could get below 2 minutes most of the time. After that it became boring and I haven't touched one in a few years.
