This has nothing to do with atheism; it’s just really cool.
While at the American Humanist Association conference, I saw my friend Leyan Lo, who is a Rubik’s Cube world champion. (He taught me how to solve it… I can do it in about three minutes now.)
Here’s him in action after Jafsica scrambles up the cube:
The Rubik’s Cube: the way to impress the ladies.
But that’s not all!
Later, we made him do it without looking, behind his back, while we unintentionally distracted him…
Once again, Jafsica was in charge of scrambling it up.
After “memorizing” the layout, it took about 70 seconds, by my count.
That’s #%$&ing impressive.
