40 Years Of the Rubik’s Cube
I used to lay in bed at night as a kid and work for hours on the Rubik’s Cube. I hated those nerds that could put together or pull apart the cube in minutes. Hated them. My favorite T Shirt is the melting Rubik’s Cube on the front as featured in the Big Bang on Sheldon. Yes I have one. But eventually I got it. I could decompose a cube in about a minute and a half. Then some nerd would do it in thirty seconds and I gave up. Walked away. Defeated. And now it’s been 40 years for the cube. “The Rubik’s Cube turns 40 this year. Ernö Rubrik – the Hungarian who invented the toy – tells us what it was like when his brainteaser became an overnight sensation. The game that has entertained people worldwide became one of the world’s best selling toys of all times. It goes on tour starting on Saturday at the Liberty Science Center in New Jersey, USA.” http://www.news-republic.com/Web/ArticleWeb.aspx?regionid=1&articleid=22222509
Cube on nerds. Cube on.
