It is with great shame that I admit that I’ve only managed to solve a Rubik’s cube once in my life, and that was just cause I peeled off a bunch of the stickers and stuck ’em back on in the right places. That being said, I’ve got a ton of respect for people who are able to show that pesky cube who’s boss. Here are ten amazing videos of people putting the Rubik’s cube in its place. Respect.
