Cube Lube

My old buddy old pals, Ultramafic and McSleezy, have been abusing the Rubik's cube of late. With dexterous, deliberate hands, they've each cracked the Rubik's code in the 2:00 minute range - impressive, to be sure. Still I think they'd be the first to admit that, with some work, they could shave significant time off their personal bests, maybe hover around the 1:00 minute mark. But I think anywhere below that range would require a competitive advantage...

There's something about their cube, about the way it moves through its combos. It's tough, rigid, doesn't slide quickly enough. Not like this guy's:

Now I'm not making any wild, Cansecan accusations about the Rubik's Record. I'm just sayin' I've always wondered about the record holders: have they honed their cubes into "gameball" shape or is their something else at play - some type of performance enhancement. Today's web surf sesh has provided some clarity around the question. Behold, Cube Lube!

Ultramafic & McSleezy, I implore you, side-effects be damned, use the lube! Take your game to the next level.
