Bryant's cube

Kelly gave me a Rubik's cube as a gift. I've been playing with it a lot, and this is one of the cool designs I made with it. See, the checkerboard pattern isn't the easy one with just the colors that are opposite each other. You have to solve it into this pattern. And even that isn't as easy as you think, because it can only be solved into certain configurations because the colors need to stay in the same relative pattern even on the non-center squares.

I own Rubik's cube. Literally and figuratively.

A kid at my work today made that pattern, but the easy way with the opposite side's colors. I pointed out to him that it was nothing to brag about because although I know nothing of rubiks cube, Bryant said what he had done was easy. He got offended.

Who is more mathematically genius, a person who can solve a rubiks cube, or a person who can solve a sudoku?

Bryant said...

Probably sudoku. Rubik's cube stops being hard once you learn how to do it. Sudoku's always hard.

And I don't think that being a master of Rubik's cube means you're a math whiz. It seems like it's more just being able to solve problems visually and spacially. No?

How come our comments are in a bigger font than the actual post? It looks funny.

Bryant said...

Yeah, this whole template looks kind of funny, actually.

Maybe "mathematically" is the wrong word for sudoku, too. It's not about your math knowledge, but about problem solving, right? Maybe?
