There’s something for everyone. There really is.
Long, long ago we mentioned competitive Rock Paper Scissors tournaments.
You may have seen news or video of 14-year-old Lucas Etter set a world record for solving Rubik’s Cube in less than 5 seconds. Just for fun, here he is doing 2×2 cubes. (Yes those exist too.)
I wonder if, as he does his preliminary examination, he mentally articulates a sequence of steps. I’m guessing it’s much more intuitive or reflexive than that, as with a good tactical chess player.
But hey, one Rubik’s cube is nothing. How about THIS guy?
200 cubes solved while killing 5 hours, you know, as he runs a marathon. Barefoot.
Um… but you know what? I bet that guy sucks at Rock Paper Scissors!
