Sticker Mover

So, I walk into the pastoral staff meeting. Paul Jones is handling a Rubiks Cube which he claims that in junior high school, he could solve in 45 seconds. After awhile (much longer than 45 seconds), he claims that the cube has been tampered with and MOVES the stickers. Can you do that? Isn't there some kind of law against moving stickers on a Rubiks Cube?

I prefer the screwdriver method myself.

I assume you are talking about the cube that was in Pat's office? During one of the IT meetings we noticed the same thing (actually Victor Ortega did, he's got a solution for the Rubik's cube on his website).

Note that the World record was recently broken, the standard 3x3x3 was solved in 11.13 seconds! At SpeedCubing the list the records for solving the cube with your feet, 4x4x4 and 5x5x5 cubes, one-handed, blindfolded, etc.

Check out this video of a kid memorizing and then solving a cube blindfolded!
