80's flashback, 80's flashback! Goodness me, I haven't seen a Rubik's Cube for AGES! lol. I could only ever get out one side at a time myself too when I used to have one, but then a friend showed my how to take it apart and put it back together again and I became an expert overnight! Hahahahahaha I suppose it keeps Hubby quiet at least, yes? lol.

I was thinking the same thing. I haven't played with one since the 80s when I was a teenager.

I know it's an old toy but all throughout the years I always see Rubik's cube but never really had one for myself because it used to bore me. But I saw a special feature in the movie "In Pursuit of Happyness" and I got challenged. Taking it apart is really a good idea. LOL!

Wow! 3 sides, that's a whole lot. I can only manage one. I'd be happy if I can get two sides at this point.

I wasn't sure what snake rubiks was so I yahooed it and now I know what it is. I saw them in Thailand. They are made of wood and you're right, they look more complicated.

I am fascinated with Rubik's cube. Can't make even on face But my sister doesn't allow me to even have one and I am well under her supervision. So it is quite discouraging!

Your sister won't allow you to have one? Maybe because she's afraid you will get addicted to it and neglect your studies. JK! But seriously I don't see why. It's not gonna harm you, is it?

Your guess is quite right. Personally I agree with her. With all the fame of this cube and my getting off-track every now an then... Better to be cautious. Hats Off!!

Oh I see. It does look very harmless to me though except that it depends on how you are going to balance study and play.

Somewwhere around our house probably still packed away since we moved, we have a Rubiks cube. They are a lot of Fun, and I am surprized and Happy to see that they are still around as well. My mother when she was alive could solve a Rubiks cube with no problem, so we used to go and mess hers up all of the time just so she could go and solve it again. I have done 2 sides before a couple of times, but never the whole thing. Maybe someday.

Our rubik's cube has been set aside for quite some time now. Hubby and I can only solve up to 3 sides. It was driving me nuts and one time I almost missed my bus to work so I decided to put it away for now. Sure they have been around long but not as popular as they used to.

God, I hate that thing. Once, I've spent days on one and still didn't manage to solve it. Then in class there was this guy who solves it in under s minute. I give up....

You could ask him for help. I have given up too. I've not touched it all day yesterday and maybe today again.

I used to be addicted to the Rubik's Cube too. I tried very hard to solve the whole thing but never could either. I got two or three sides on it and that was it. I never got more than that.

Wow, 3 sides, I would celebrate if I could do that. But right now I'm starting to get demotivated with it. Because it was taking my time away from myLot.

I haven't played with a rubik's cube in a long time. They were really populur in the 80s when I was a teenager. I haven't heard much about them in along time.

I used to think they were a boring toy when I was in elementary school during the 80s. It's only now that I really got interested in them because I think my brain needs some work. LOL!

I am never good at rubik's cube. I can't even get a side correct. It's frustrating. I did smashed one so I can put it back together again like a puzzle. Of course that won't work either. They said it's for something that is good with Mathematics. So I was sux at it~~~ I did watch an episode in The Beauty and The Geek, one of the contestant solved it on his back. He was fast too!

Yea, that was what challenged me because I'm also a Math sucker. And sometimes I think that my brain is so idle and this is a good idea to make it work. LOL!
