Rubik’s Cube

It only took me about 30 years but I finally solved the Rubik’s cube that I got for Christmas back in 1980 or 1981. It’s not that it has never been solved before, several annoyingly bright people have solved it for me (or maybe it was showing off?). I’ve also cheated and pulled it apart and re-assembled it correctly a time or two. However, today I actually solved it.

I didn’t figure it out myself, exactly. I found a YouTube video that actually gave a sequence of algorithms to follow. It does bug me a bit that I don’t know why the algorithms work. Maybe over the holidays I’ll see if I can actually understand what is really going on…

Otherwise it will be back to the junk drawer for that toy for another 20 or 30 years!
