Rubik's Cube Master

Joey has a mathematical / mechanical brain, no question about it. This was evidenced again by his learning how to solve the Rubik's Cube in one day and then getting his time down under 2 minutes. The video below clocks him at 1:57 but his fastest time to date is a lightning fast 1:32.

Yes, this is the same Rubik's Cube that made it's appearance to the world in the early 1980's. In fact, it's the same one I was easily able to solve myself those many years ago. All it took me was a small knife and a deft prying motion to rip the pieces out and put them where they were supposed to go. Joey's method is clearly the better way.
