    In the winter of '92 my flatmates and I decided we were going to learn to do the Rubik's cube. We used to pull them to bits first, and put powdered graphite inside them to lubricate them so they spun very easily (the downside was that if you didn't have them lined up enough and then tried to turn them sideways they tended to explode...) and we learnt the 6 different styles of move required to complete.
    My record was 1:31. But now in my old age I can't remember the last 2 moves, so can't get it quite done.
