    Watched a video explaining how most people do these tricks. It boils down to spinning two ways till it comes back to the start. So they spin top, than side till it`s half way, than just keep going to finish it. Wish I could find that link, I suck at explaining.

    Myth. You can`t solve a cube by only turning 2 sides. I`ve seen what you`re talking about but yes its a myth.

    Who is Einsteiner?

    Sorry. Einstein. I was a little too deep into the single malt.

    @KLouD: I think EgalM is on to something. You can take a solved cube and with a sequence of repetive moves (right-side back, top clockwise, rotate entire cube 90 deg clockwise--repeat 10X, for example) scramble it in a way that can readily be solved by reversing the movements 10X.

    I`ve been suspicious of these juggling videos because every bonafide video I`ve seen of a cube stunt is careful to include 15 seconds at the start of someone else doing a thoroughly random scramble on camera (because everyone familiar with the cubes knows that you can cheat as described above).

    Obviously a suspicion is not proof of anything, and perhaps these jugglers really *are* solving random cubes. But if they *can* accomplish such an incredible feat, it`s peculiar they aren`t including that 15-second random scramble at the start so as to leave no question of their ability.

    Knowing a method for solving the thing myself I find it rather hard to believe it was actually scrambled. With the cube constantly rotating in air I can`t tell what he`s doing though. (One reason I find it hard to believe lol.) But who knows. I`m no expert. My best time being just under two minutes when people solve it in seconds. If he`s really a genius who spent countless hours doing this it`s probably doable given that he had 6 minutes or so.

    @Squrlz4Sale That makes the most sense. Perhaps it was scrambled in a way that he could solve it without too much effort.

    It would be infinitely more impressive if he was solving them at the same time.
