Top 5 Rubik’s Cube World Records

Rubik's Cube World Records

The Rubik’s Cube was invented by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture, Ernõ Rubik, in 1974. He originally called it the Magic Cube but changed the name to Rubik’s Cube in 1980. The Rubik’s Cube quickly became popular, winning a German Game of the Year special award. The game brought people from all around the world together and speedcubing competitions were born. The first world championship organized by the Guinness Book of World Records was in 1981.  The 1980s Rubik’s Cube interest slowly died down, but started to increase again in the early 2000s. The first World Rubik’s Games Championship since 1982 was held in 2003 leading to the 2004 formation of the World Cube Association. Competitions have been held every year after and many of Rubik’s Cube World Records have been set since.

Small, unforeseen events can affect our world in big ways

From The Insider’s Guide to Happiness we learn that small, unforeseen events can lead to some tremendous outcomes. In the show, a character getting hit by a runaway ambulance, leads to a myriad of strange circumstances. A person chokes, causing an ambulance to be called. Another character is stuck in the car-wash, honking their horn for assistance, while another character is surprised by the honking horn, drops a vase she was carrying, causing a biker to swerve from almost hitting her. The biker swerves into the street and forces the ambulance to crash. The ambulance runs over someone who just won the lottery, but did not claim their ticket yet. The man carrying the ticket is killed, and another person picks it up and becomes very wealthy as a result. All because a man choked on his dinner.
