    The Rubik's cube is 40 years old today!

    Google's 'doodle' the picture they have above the search box is an interactive rubik's cube today.

    Yeah...total time suck. I solved it in 74 moves...who can beat me?

    I remember looking at it as a kid, twisting it around a few times ... then I went out and rode my skateboard. That was the sum of my Rubik's Cube experience. I still think it was the right choice.

    Can't believe nobody called bullshit on my 74 moves comment. I know some solving algorithms, but Im not that good.

    74 is reasonable. My younger stepson can do it very quickly. It's not really even a challenge for him.

    Yeah, but i've never solved a Rubik's cube in my life...I just happen to know a couple ways to do it. Actually applying it is a whole nother story. I just thought it was a cool doodle from google.

    Yep. My stepson messed with it some yesterday and got bored with it. Funny thing (to me) is he's not a geek, he's a jock. But he still gets into some of the geeky stuff.
