Here's a wiki trivia for y'all:
The Rubik's Cube is a 3-D mechanical puzzle invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Erno Rubik. He sought to find a teaching tool to help his students understand 3D objects.
35 years later, it's still a big hit among school students, collegians and working adults.
And 23 years later, I'm finally able to solve it and have earned the Genius Bragging Right (Platinum).
It all started when Mimi brought one to class and started teaching us, whoever wanted to learn to be a genius. And so it spread like wildfire. Everyone wanted to be a genius. Next thing I know, half of the class earned their own personal Genius Bragging Right.
Suddenly I don't feel so much of a genius after all. But my Platinum Genius Bragging Right is still valid among those who haven't solved it.
'Coz I realised, we've been fooled all along. Rubik's Cube has always been associated with geniuses, but I can swear to you even a person raised by wolves will be able to solve this puzzle cube, granted he or she is not colour blind. So if you have never been able to solve it, you don't have to feel so bad.
See, you don't have to be a genius to solve it.
You just need good eye and hands coordination. And of course, you can't be colour blind. And a good memory will earn you the Platinum Genius Bragging Right.
It took me a while though to learn it, like, I needed a couple of days to be able to complete the whole thing. Either I have REALLY bad coordination or Mimi suck at teaching. But I eventually graduated from her school of Rubik's Cube and earned a Platinum Genius Bragging Right so whatever it is, she's awesome and I'm awesome too.
So, if you think that 'magic' cube might highlight your dumbness, it won't. It's all a lie. Anyone can solve it, even Mowgli.
