Not to sound nerdy... Buuut.....

My record on a 3x3 is 1 min, 12 sec.
4x4, roughly 10 mins :P

Its just a series of patterns you have to memorize, and when to use them :P
If you get Skype and add me (Skype name: Icewolf68) on it, I can try to teach you like i have about 7 other people!

> Rubik Cubes are for weird people... I got a similar puzzle which consists of six wooden bars with different indentations, and when you assemble the puzzle it is supposed to look like there are two parallel bars on for each dimension (X,Y, Z). I got that on 2007's X-Mas... Haven't done it yet...

> Though my brother-in-law who had dislexia when he was young and now programs in C++ with his eyes closed, solved that in less than 30 seconds.

They make my head hurt, but I can do them.

I'm not as fast as Ice, but I have completed a 3 x 3 and a 4 x 4, sadly I have attempted, but not completed, a 5 x 5.... Waaaay too difficult.

I broke my 5x5 :( one of the pieces snapped when I tried to take it apart to see how
it worked

I can do them, takes a long time though.

You do them in layers. like the top layer, middle, then bottom. Not by faces!
