It Looks Like We Have a Rubik's Champion

You've been there: last second changes to a document that is due in the next five minutes, making changes so quickly that you don't even know if they are good corrections or not. I know that I have been there; it is mainly because of procrastination that I get myself into these situations.

Yet, there are some people out there in the world who thrive on those moments: last seconds moves that decide the ending fate of the task at hand. Twiddling your fingers so fast that they risk crashing into each other, making frustrating and seemingly tedious moments. These types of people solve Rubik's Cubes in their free time; and they solve them fast, and I mean really fast. What some of these people can do in a few seconds is faster than the rest of us can solve one side of the cube.

And fortunately, GMC has one of these people. His name is Brent Nestburg.

Brent, who is currently a freshman, has been solving Rubik's Cubes for the past three years. His fastest time? "About 7.7 seconds," he stated calmly. He continues to state that he does not practice as much as he used to. While quite unfortunate, he still does very well. He gave me a couple of demonstrations with each averaging around 12 seconds. Not only does Brent solve the Rubik's Cubes that we usually see: the 3x3x3 cubes, but he also solves 4x4x4 cubes and 5x5x5 cubes.

Solving a Rubik's Cube is a difficult task. Yet, it's not the only difficult task. Who knows what talents GMC students have. Do you know of anybody with a superb talent? Then send some information about them to The Forge committe at
