    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?

    while??? for me, It would take Decades!!!!!

    I'd probably give up after the first decade.

    I think thats 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. Infact he just ordered an 11 by 11.

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