In summary, the conversation is about a video of someone solving a 20x20x20 Rubik's Cube in 4 hours, and the discussion surrounding it. Some people are skeptical, while others believe it is possible with enough practice and a method used for the 3x3 version. There is also discussion about the difficulty of solving a 20x20x20 cube, with some people finding it too boring or time-consuming. Some people argue that it is not actually impressive, as it can be solved using algorithms. Overall, opinions are divided on whether or not this feat is impressive or worth attempting.

The truth is..I really don't know if I'll believe it or what.

That may take a while to master

There is a method to solving a Rubix cube. I tend to believe that this is real. I think in 4 hours, though, my head would explode.

There's a method to solving the 3x3 version I know that I'm sure with a bit of work could be applied to 20x20, although why you would want to is beyond me, how boring would that be to do?

I think that's the real question isn't why someone would want to, but WHO would want to?

Pfft, what a load of crap. Notice how the computer showed you which rows and columns were moved, just really fast? He just memorized that and undid it.

Yeah, its real, my friend gets sub-minute ones on his 3 by 3 and can do a 5 by 5 in about 5 mins. The thing is, being 20 by 20 there is no center, which makes it much harder. In fact he just ordered an 11 by 11.

none of this is impressive, all of these are solved algorithmically
