Rubik's Cube

I was introduced to Rubik's cubes as a child. I was fascinated by them and spent many hours with them. I never did develop a solution of my own but I memorized one and practiced it. I later wrote up a solution which embodied the solution that I memorized. When I was in practice, I was able to solve the cube in an average of 2 and a half minutes (which is noting compared to the world class times). I have included the solution I memorized below.

The Rubik's cube is making a comeback now and there are many people with innate skills in solving the cube that blow my mind. One of these skills is the way some people can examine a cube and then solve it blindfolded. Of course the fact that people can solve the cube in 10 seconds is also equally mind blowing.
