On Tuesday, the official Twitter account for Vanderbilt football threw out a fun little video: Linebacker Stephen Weatherly solving a Rubik's Cube in just under two minutes, to the shock of everyone in the office watching him.
What happens when you give an outside linebacker a Rubik's cube? https://t.co/PwmuMUh2tj— VandyFootball (@VandyFootball) April 28, 2015
On Wednesday, Florida responded — with Nick Washington solving one in just over one minute.
I think, for some reason, that I knew about Washington's prowess with the Rubik's Cube, via an interview or something, but I can't find said interview right now. Regardless, solving the Rubik's Cube in a minute or close to is astounding, even as mere application of a memorized pattern; I've never solved one in my life, and I doubt I could do it within a half-hour.
But Washington and Weatherly aren't even in the same league as the world's finest speedcubers: 17-year-old Collin Burns of Pennsylvania just unofficially topped the world record for a 3x3x3 cube last Saturday ... by solving one in 5.25 seconds.
