It's so funny to see the rubik's cube regain popularity with my youngest son and his peers.

I have never ever been able to solve rubik's cube! My sister had it in her hands for about 45 seconds and had it done. She still teases me about it, and yet I still can't resist fooling with it, though I've given up on actually getting all the colors together.

I used to take the colored paper off the squares and recolor them. Cube solved. What is the problem with that?
