What 14 looks like

He hates to pose for pictures anymore, so I took this one while he was playing with one of his gifts-- a 5x5 Rubik's Cube. He's mastered the smaller versions, so this is a new challenge.

Happy birthday, Kyle!

As if the 3x3 were not tough enough. I never got more than maybe 2 sides before throwing it out the window. He looks good for 14 - glad you haven't killed him yet. :)

Indeed-- almost as tall as I am (and gaining daily!).

At the time I used the tricks in one of the cheat books to solve the 3x3x3. My non-engineering brain is not built for this stuff. Still fun though with the right help.

YF: I do have an engineering brain, but it apparently does not apply to Rubik's Cubes-- I am no good at them at all.

Kyle does, though-- he and his buddies have spent hours learning the algorithms to solve both the 3x3 and 4x4 versions. It amazes me, how fast they can whip through them.
