347. Solving the Rubik's Cube

The Rubik's Cube is the world's best selling toy. It was invented in the year 1974 by a Hungarian Architect,Erno Rubik. It is also the world's top selling puzzle game.My dad bought me a Rubik's cube when I was a kid and he taught me the technique to solve the puzzle. As a kid, i used to blindly follow the technique and solve the puzzle. But now if someone asks me to solve it, i couldn't because I have forgotten the formula.
The movie-Pursuit of happiness has brought tear drops to my eyes many a times. I could totally relate to Will Smith's characterisation in the movie in many scenes. The Rubik's cube plays a vital part in the life of the Hero of the movie,Chris Gardner. If you haven't watched the movie yet, do watch it soon. It is really a soul touching film indeed.
Coming back to Rubik's cube, I am writing this post to help all my readers to solve the puzzle. If there are winners, there would be losers. A coin has two sides. For every problem there would be a good solution and there would be a bad solution also. So if you could call my solution for the puzzle as the Good solution, then you should know the person behind the bad solution. He is none other than the rear-end of all jokes Mr. George W Bush. He was once asked to solve the puzzle.

He stared at the cube for more than an hour and suddenly called for a press meet in which he made a public statement to the world

"I'm telling you there's an enemy that would like to attack America, Americans,again. There just is. That's the reality of the world. And I wish him all the very best." George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., Jan. 12, 2009.

So I decided to help Mr.Bush on this case and designed a special cube for him to solve. This cube is white in color. Apparently Mr. Bush solved this puzzle in 25 minutes.People who have the IQ of Mr.Bush are requested to solve this puzzle and not to try the original Rubik's cube.


In the mean time Mr.Bush wanted a slightly complicated puzzle to solve. So with the help of two scientists, I came up with a tougher upgrade of the beginner level exclusively for him.

Now as we have made the less IQ people busy by giving them their much needed answer, we would proceed to find the solution for the original Rubik's cube puzzle.
Sometimes in life people discourage us by saying that we can't do certain things in life. They say it because they themselves can't do it. So they try to bog us down too. Never ever listen to what they say. Always follow your heart ( This paragraph is an advice from my alter ego-Mr.X. My alter-ego also saw the movie Pursuit of Happiness along with me. This paragraph is a punctured version of the original advice that Will Smith gives to his son in the movie. Better watch the movie to understand the lines better)
Let me not beat around the bush. So i am gonna give you the easiest way to solve the Rubik's puzzle.
Requisites
Rubik's cube - 1 number (the solvee)
Human being - 1 number (the solver)
Paint brush - 1 number
Paint - 6 colours
Method
The solution is very complicated to explain. So I'd rather attach a picture of how to solve a Rubik's cube.

Moral: Impossible is Possible.

  27. I had the Rubik's Cylinder (not the cube) and used to be addicted to it. But yea after I learnt the trick, I lost the enthusiasm. Sometimes Life is worth living only until you are on the hunt for answers. And sheesh, Aravind got a DVD of Pursuit of Happiness last week and I didn't give it a damn. Will watch it. :)
