2 years and counting.

I can't seem to memorize the algorithms after solving the top layer. I really don't know why.

I have the instructional DVD somewhere. I can copy it I think. PM me if interested. All I'd ask is that you provide the DVD rom and shipping back to you.

I was really into this stuff about a year or so ago.

3x3 ~55 seconds
4x4 ~1:20
5x5 ~3:00
6x6 ~------
7x7 ~ 10-15 minutes
siamese cube ~2:00
megaminx ~an hour

Not an expert but I got the Idea.   What I'm proud about though is that I figured it out on my own instead of using stupid youtube instructional videos.

I have successfully gone 30 years with never being able to complete the cube.

That's because we didn't bother (or didn't know) that there were books and websites with algorithms on solving the cube. And couldn't solve it like Will Smith*  . :)



Though I am considering buying one to try the algorithms. Anybody tried the 4x4x4 or 5x5x5 cube?

Yea.. It takes a little longer.. It's kinda the same way you do it. But you have to learn some more algorithms though :)

Sorry to be a noob, but, where can I find these rubik's cubes you guys are talking about? The only variety I've ever known are the cheap ones that you get at arcades lol...

Wal-Mart toy section ($8) , Toys R Us, Amazon (if you want to order online), most toy/game shops should have them.

   What I'm proud about though is that I figured it out on my own
I'm calling bs on that claim. Unless you are a mathematical genius, there's no way you solved one without looking up algorithms or having no prior knowledge of how one is solved.
