Rubik's cube..

I never be patient enough to solve this Rubik's cube. Have you seen Will Smith's movie, the pursuit of happiness? There's one scene in which he was on this one cab with a man and try to solve this cube while having a conversation with the other man. I was looking at how he did it and amazed. I can never be that fast solving it. Want to know what this cube really is? Here's a brief story of Rubik's cube.
  • The Rubik's Cube is a mechanical puzzle invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture ErnÅ‘ Rubik
  • There exist four widely available variations of the Cube: the 2×2×2 (Pocket Cube, also Mini Cube, Junior Cube, or Ice Cube), the standard 3×3×3 cube, the 4×4×4 (Rubik's Revenge, or Master Cube), and the 5×5×5 (Professor's Cube). Recently, larger sizes are also on the market (V-Cube 6 and V-Cube 7)
  • There are exactly 43,252,003,274,489,856,000 possibilities, which is approximately forty-three quintillion (short scale) or forty-three trillion (long scale)...No wonder I can never get to solve this cube=p

By the way, if you're just like me. Trying so many times but never seem to get this cube to be in it's proper colors. Maybe you should try this link. I stumble upon this article called Rubik's Cube Solution. Click here to read the instruction. It has been said that the one whoa has use this method was able to finish the cube in just 2 minutes 13 seconds. Care to give it a try? Good luck.
