Funny, I tried to 'solve' my rubiks cube that way. I managed to rip the stickers in half...or more, so I had a very sad looking rubiks cube.

That was always my solution.

I don't know.

nice work Jamie, but it needs more TARDIS.

I learned how to solve this and it's both a blessing and a curse. Now I can never leave one unsolved. Also people at work think I'm a genius so that's good too.

Ack! They always tell you not to do this to your Rubik's cube. Oh well, I guess it is a solution to a normal problem.

You can pry the cube apart and then reassemble it.

And here's how Mythbusters does it:

It probably took longer to "solve" it that way that doing it the right way.

But we all did it anyway ;)

Instruction manual for everything, if you can figure it out. Also, if you squint at the blue it could be Tardis like ; )

Beyond just a great reminder ofmy high school days and the temptations therein, I think this shirt is a metaphor for todays'youth, who are told they are all perfect and all winners - at all times . . . And the reality???? : It's actually no viable solution to the problem.

Or maybe, just maybe . . .it's just a really cool shirt.

Yep... that's how smart people do it. My friend and I both figured it out on our own.

Wearing this t-shirt, IMHO, says well... not smart.

I always took what I call the "War Games" approach to the cube, in that the only way to win was not to play.

Wish the shirt had no text, kinda redundant and distracting.

When I was a kid I did this to my uncles Rubik's cube. He didn't talk to me for a week.

I like it with the text. It's a simple silly message.

I didn't have to take the stickers off. I just popped off the actual pieces and reattached them in the right places. Seriously.

DianaSprinkle


quality posts: 112 Private Messages DianaSprinkle

Ha ha ha, yeah I also just popped the pieces out and reassembled the cube. Though that's just as bad for the toy as taking the stickers off and slowly the cube pieces would fall out without much effort...

I was too disaffected in my youth to extend even this much effort. If I got more than five matching on one side, that would elicit an, "eh, good enough" from me.

Pardon me, would you have any bags of crap?

There needs to be another version of this shirt without sticker tampering. But with the exact same text and stuff.

Just bought my first cube a few months ago! It's now a goal of mine to solve it before I die. But as of now, it's just sitting on a shelf mocking me. :-(

That's the only way I've ever solved a Rubik's Cube. :-(

My stickers looked pretty much undisturbed afterward and remain stuck to that cube to this day. :-)

My cube growing up ended up in some odd non-cube shape. I have NO clue how I manged it.

I learned to solve the cube using "legitimate" methods back in the '90s. Now, I can honestly say that "I just take off the stickers" is the single most annoying phrase anyone can ever use in the presence of a cube. Overused and not funny. Like people calling me Luke Skywalker.

This shirt would've been cooler if the stickers had been applied in an impossible configuration. Like the blue and green sides touching, which can't happen on a standard cube.

As small as that detail is, it would have pushed me to a buy.

You do realize that that clip is backwards, right? They solved nothing.

We already know which people think they are better than everyone. They don't need a shirt that says it.

I always opted for the disassemble solution. Funny shirt, Jamie!

It really wasn't that hard to solve, was it? It took me days the first time, then I got down to less than 90 seconds. Today I probably couldn't solve on in less than a few days.

quality posts: 22 Private Messages andrewtl

this is how any child of the 1980's did it. though i also pried mine apart. resonates with my childhood but i think that it is intuitive enough to have done without the 'solved it'. those who couldn't figure that part out don't deserve to be in on it.

pfffft!

Everybody knows that the center of the cube has the right colors on it already, and don't need to be moved.

This turned out nicely.
Happy to see it print.

A mixed up blue TARDIS/cube is an epic idea, though.

Hey I acctually solved it for real in the 80s before there was a manual telling you how to solve it. (I know aging myself). I can still solve it. I shiver when I see the stickers pulled off.

If the shirt had a screw driver next to the cube with a corner piece left to put in and said 'almost solved' it would have been perfect.......for me.
I had it down to 35 seconds at my best.

It's a funny shirt folks, not really meant to be an instruction manual.

And text seals the deal much more than you could imagine.
