Totally unrelated...
...to calculators but somehow I believe there will be a public for that video here
Wonder if he is fed with intravenous injections...
For God sake, I just can't believe the guy recorded himself 8h solving a Pentamix.

Amazing... Smile
I always wonder how these guys can solve 3x3 Rubik cubes in a matter of a few seconds... in the 80's I have finally "fixed" mine by just opening it with a screwdriver!

I think a 1x1x2 is about the biggest I can handle without a solution guide.

Lol. Well with the 3x3x3 I did learn by heart an algorithm to show off when I was a teenager. But I can't say I actually solved any of those things :-)

Would you still call him a genius after that ?

Wish I could solve such puzzles, Alex. Of course, instead of toying my time away, I'd rather find a solution for a stable economy, an eternal source of energy and a cure for cancer ;-).

Check out this little beauty solving the 3x3x3, OK she takes over two minutes to do it but . . .

Wow, what a talent. I admit I can't compete.

No smoking and no laboratory experiments disguised as food. No preservatives, no additives, no stabilizers, no flavor enhancers, no food colorants, no problem!

Oh yeah, and horses, not buses.

It ain't OVER 'till it's 2 PICK

And no viruses. My Hodgkin's Desease is likely caused by a virus. But thanks for some ideas. I'm waiting for Diesel cars to become forbidden before getting a horse.

You also forgot: No alcohol. Tounge cancer et al. kill at least life quality.

Sorry to hear about your ailment. Best wishes for your good health Smile

Diesel is probably a lot healthier than gasoline.

Don't forget 7 billion people being a really attractive market for viruses. A 500 MT habitat to be conquered. ;) And large scale probabilities are difficult to put on the few people each of us knows.

Maybe, but we're not talking about drinking it. The WHO classifies Diesel exhaust as carcinogen. Instead of speculating about gasoline, we should get things out of our lives that are *known* to cause cancer, right? :-)

Oh, that's different then.

The WHO is about as trustworthy as the UN. Which is to say on a scale of 1 to 10 they owe points. The last thing the world needs is a political agenda in medical advice, policy, etc. The UN kills more people than diesel fuel and gasoline combined. With the UN gone everybody would be healthier.

Now you're getting off-topic. I can claim with the same right that your statement applies to another Ux but I won't - let's stop here.

I'm closing this thread. Yes, it's Not Remotely HP Calculators, which is fine, but now it's getting offensive.
