spewed a cube
onto my screen
Would be rude
Not to partake
in the puzzle delight
But on the monitor
it don’t feel quite right
as fingers can’t fathom
different clicks of the clicks
Digit rubbing a Mac
gives no solid fix
OR physical kicks
Yet the task has been set
and I overclick underclick
solving the mix
(not at all very quick)
however it gives me cause to contemplate things
& all those weeks being transfixed
obsessing over these colourful stickerful bricks
invented by that trickster
Mr Ernő Rubik
Happy 40th Anniversary
Google have a working Rubik Cube today on google doodle to celebrate 40 years of the Cube. The year of my birth. I worked out this cube when I was nine. Frustration made me take it apart and work backwards. Tis still one of my fave objects. I have no choice but to complete this google offering. If I see one jumbled – I need to tidy it.
It’s all down to pretty patterns and corners.
My fastest time is around 1min 20 seconds.
This time I will try not to beat my first google doodle time of 20:21 and 185 clicks.
Even though I REALLY REALLY NEED to and WANT to.
Will I be strong enough?
** Of course I wasn’t strong enough!
2nd attempt 177 moves in 17:25
3rd attempt 119 moves in 7:50 (that’ll do :-))
Also discovered it’s the same configuration each time – so in theory I should become faster and faster.
If you have a need to have a shuffle. Go to Google and open up a new tab or go get out the real thing. There’s always one or two a lurking 🙂
