Rubik's Cube New World Record

I have vented my frustration in the past about the ubiquitous and annoying Rubik's Cube. However people just can't seem to get enough of it and continue to break world records on how fast they can solve this absurd puzzle toy. This nerd activity has got its own special name nowadays and is known as "speedcubing". The latest world record holder is Dutch teenager Erik Akkersdijk, who managed to solve the Rubik's Cube in just 7.08 seconds.


Don't let his appearance deceive you. Despite placing a cool pair of shades on his head, the guy really is a nerd by virtue of his startling accomplishment. I am absolutely flabbergasted by his time. How did he manage to remove the stickers on each individual square of the Rubik's Cube and place them back so quickly without tearing them? Begrudgingly, I have to give respect to this nerd because his new 7.08 seconds world benchmark is slightly better than my only recorded completion time of 23 years, 6 months, 13 days and 2 hours.

Right, I'll get my coat.....

Geek. If we have a social life, we're geeks. :)

But seriously though, nothing wrong with Rubiks cubes. I solve mine over and over again in an average time of a minute 10 seconds. I usually mess with it when I'm waiting for public transport. It helps me pass the time nicely. The upside is that it's also my party piece getting free drinks during happy hour and phone numbers from girls.

Some days, it pays to be such a geek. :)
