How to: Look Like You Know How to Solve a Rubick's Cube

You ever watch videos of those amazing people who compete to solve the Rubik's cube in just a few seconds. Blindfolded?! Or 3 years old?! I hate those people. I have never been able to solve a Rubik's cube (intentionally). I'm sure that I could figure it out if I, you know, researched it. But I'm a busy girl and honestly, when I have downtime, it's not exactly the first thing that comes to mind.

Which is probably why I loved this video. Standupmaths has come up with a simple 9-step method to "solve" the cube which I think makes a beautiful unethical party trick. And of course, it's also fun and easy enough to show little Geeks.

Check it out and then give it a try.






FYI: I’m this month's speaker at Girl Geek Dinner Ottawa. Join me on Wednesday, January 30th for some IRL geeky goodness. For more info, check out the event details and a sneak peek at my talk.

excellent!! I totally need a new party trick. Drinking milk and spitting it out of my nose and ears is getting a little tired.

Thank you!
