can you solve a Rubik's cube?


just wonderin' .. might be a skill that comes in handy.

I've been able to solve a 3x3x3 for decades and learned how to solve a 4x4x4 a couple of years ago. I've worked on a 5x5x5 a little but haven't had time to really learn how to solve it.

reply

Do you think you'd be able to solve the 3x3x3 without knowing algorithms ?

reply

If you aren't using algorithms then you are basically solving it by chance.

reply

Don’t... know.

I should try one again soon.

reply

I often can (haven't played in a while, though I have one)..I've cheated by switching the "color markers" ha ha.

reply

hah! classic move

reply

You also used to be able to pop them apart into the individual small cubes and put them back together.

Kirk’s Kobyashi Maru solution! Bravo!

Hmmm: work on a Rubik’s cube, or cure cancer? Which one do I wanna do? OH! So hard to decide! Completely fritter my time away, or use my Given gifts for the good of my species?

reply

If you cured cancer, you'd likely be killed. That industry is worth billions.

reply

Exactly right.

reply

Yes, by throwing it out of the window. No cube - no problem.
