There was a guy in my class who could do it in 3 minutes smile.gif

The world record for one handed solving is twenty something seconds (Sorry, don't have the link for the vid. My internet keeps pwning up on me).

And that's while wearing a stray jacket solving the cube behind his back on really heavy medication ohmy.gif

I used to be able to solve it, probably took me 2-4 minutes - I was just a kid when it became popular.. in the early 80's if I remember well - and I was strictly following schedules on how to turn. Now that I've forgot these schedules I can't solve it anymore. mellow.gif

I'm about the same - could never do it now. I do remember that one time I got lucky in front of a bunch of my friends and did it in about 1:20 or so smile.gif
