And You Thought You Were Wasting Your Life Away …

RubikManMW_450x300.jpgIf, after 26 years, you still haven’t mastered your hobby, here’s an idea: Get a different one.

It has taken most of his life - but, after 26 years, builder Graham Parker has finally solved the puzzle of the Rubik’s Cube.
When he bought the toy in 1983, Yuri Andropov was leader of the Soviet Union, breakfast TV was a novelty and music CDs were in the shops for the first time.
‘I cannot tell you what a relief it was to finally solve it,’ the 45-year-old from Portchester, Hampshire, said. ‘It has driven me mad over the years - it felt like it had taken over my life.

Oh, man: How fun would it have been to sneak in and screw up the cube before he could show anyone! Drats! 26 more years.

Wow... I solved it in about 10 min. Granted, I cheated, but the end result was the same ;)
