rubik’s cube

Oh, he can cover 100 meters in 9.81 seconds, but could Usain Bolt solve a Rubiks's Cude in the same amount of time?

Reminding the public that some skills have yet to be included in the Olympic Games, one YouTuber decided to share footage of himself competing against Usain… in two very separate events.

While the Jamaican runner competed for an Olympic gold in the 100-metre, Anthony Brooks crouched in front of his television screen and frantically completed the head-melting puzzle in the same amount of time.

In footage which has been viewed more than 66,000 on YouTube since its upload earlier this week, Anthony, whose mother is the Jamaican national record holder for the Rubik's Cube,  wrote: "Two Jamaicans race against the clock. To the world!"

Since we struggle to run for a bus and once tried to dismantle a Rubik's Cube in fury, we're pretty impressed by everything going on in this video.




When recent Harvard graduate Nuseir Yassin went on a two-month backpacking trip around the world, he decided to reach out to strangers across the world with the help of a Rubik's Cube.

Across 11 countries, Nuseir got 84 strangers (plus one snake and one monkey) to do a single move on the puzzle, so they could collectively solve it.

Nuseir wrote about the video project:

"After graduating from Harvard College in May, 2014, I decided to backpack for two months and see what the world had to offer."

"I also wanted to solve a 3x3x3 Rubik's Cube throughout the entirety of my journey. To do so, I had one person do one move only in different locations I had travelled to. This is the final result."
