That's a very female-looking Ender. Perhaps it's actually Valentine?

And I thought this thread might have been casting news. [Grumble]

That was pretty amazing. Is she really just three? I thought the high chair might be a trick to make her look younger. Never mind the mental processes, that hand-eye coordination was impressive in and of itself for a child that age. But hey, not that a year or two would make the accomplishment any less impressive!

Sweet!
My Bro Joey could solve the cube in less than a minute in his hayday.

I had a little friend who took less than 2 minutes to solve them as a 4-year-old. Once you get the patterns it's not hard to do (for most people.) What was amazing is that no one taught him how to do it; he figured it out for himself.

My best time ever was 76 seconds. But generally, it takes me about as long as it took the kid in the video. She was using set moves, it looked like, but the coordination was pretty amazing.

One time I managed to solve the cube by peeling off and replacing all the stickers.

I was pretty much a child prodigy.

I solved it by taking it apart and putting it back together. But I quess it is just as impressive if you solved it by sticking to the rules. You know, in a "inside the box" sort of way. [Smile]

The girl is actually 6 years old as described by the Chinese characters at the bottom. Whoever post the vid and wrote the description did not know what they were talking about.

The black characters at the top say, "Magic!" double edit: I read that wrong! It could be saying "magic cube!" or even "devil square!" Or it is most likely just he generally accepted closest translation to rubix cube. Rubix being a pretty hard word to translate into Chinese.

edit: You'd think they fact they wrote 6 instead of the Chinese "Liu" would have tipped somebody off.

So I'm not the only one who disassembled? LOL

Oh, I disassembled it a lot. I wasn't counting that.

One day, a guy named Mark came into my dorm room. A bunch of us were sitting around just talking, and Mark announced that he'd solved the Rubik's Cube. We were all pretty bemused, since Mark was pretty vociferous about his hatred of the toy.

So he tossed someone a cube and told them to mix it up for him. When they did, he placed it on the floor, went to the door, and came back with the -- I kid you not -- sledgehammer he'd stood up next to the door before coming in.

He was an engineer, so he probably should have realized that there'd be shrapnel in all directions. I'm not sure he cared, though.

If this were the first time this child had seen rubics cube, it might be significant. But once you have learned an algorithm for solving the cube, doing it fast is not great mental fete.
