      Let me clarify.

      I'm quite pissed off right now. I guarantee there will be a
      significant amount of trash talking in this group. I guarantee a lot
      of it will come from me.

      But those who know me know that I am a very rational being. This group
      will also be a forum where we will come up with requests for evidence,
      or simple steps that certain posters can take to restore credibility to
      their name.

      I am not an unreasonable man. If you claim a x-second average, and
      your average time in competition is x + 7 seconds, and your best time
      in competition is x + 1 second, but it was a PLL skip, we're going to
      be suspicious. Honestly, you're better off not posting to begin with.

      This forum will also be a place where we can discuss statistical tests
      to determine who is within range of credibility, and who is not. In
      the future, I'm going to suggest these steps to the world, so you don't
      piss me off. Because otherwise, I'll end up doing something like this.

      1. Don't play 1. d4. I don't know how to respond to it, and I usually
      end up in a really bad position.
      2. If you're a parent and your kid is playing a chess game, don't make
      any gestures. Stand behind the kid, so he can't see you.
      3. Don't lie on speedcubing.com. If you do lie, when you post video
      evidence, include sound. Otherwise, it's too easy for you to speed it
      4. Don't drink and drive. Drunk dialing me, and telling me that
      you've had a beer, five shots of vodka, and are currently driving on
      the highway is the dumbest thing ever. Call me, and I will come pick
      you up so you don't have to drive. If I'm playing a chess game, leave
      a message, and I'll call you back when I'm done. In the meantime,
      drink as much vodka as you want, as you're not driving.
      5. Are you an attractive single female? Stop messing with my head.
      6. Wipe off your hands if they're sweaty and you're about to shake
      hands with someone.

      Here are a list of questions that you shouldn't ask me. In fact, I
      will be printing out index cards with the answers to these questions.
      If you ask me one of these questions, I will hand you a card. If you
      receive a card, don't talk to me for 5 minutes.

      1. OMG! ZOMG! Are you REALLI Tyson Mao?!?
      2. Were the girls really that dumb?
      3. Can you REALLY solve a Rubik's Cube?
      4. How do you solve it blindfolded? (Allowed if you can solve it with
      your eyes open.)
      5. So did you have fun on the show? (If I didn't have fun, I wouldn't
      have done it.)

      A list of things not to say.

      1. I used to be able to solve it in like a minute.
      2. My friend/ex-girlfriend/neighbor/father's uncle's dog's pet hamster
      could solve those things WITHOUT LOOKING in 5 seconds.

      Gosh, the list goes on and on. We'll let this forum be a place where
      you can complain about these statements too.

      Oh, and one more thing not to do.

      1. Solve the Rubik's Cube behind your back in 27 seconds, and then
      speed solve it in front of you in 21 seconds.
      2. Rock back and forth like an idiot while someone scrambles your
      cube, and then speed solve the cube in 21 seconds AFTER solving the
      cube behind your back in 27.


      If any good can come of this, I hope you're all entertained. Because
      I'm quite pissed off, and even though I'm pissed, at least someone
      should benefit from it.

        I understand the need to argue in certain forums, but do we have to
        scare off new cubers? If I had just joined and saw all this junk
        flying around, there's no way I'd want to stay in this group. Let's
        keep the arguing to the methods, kinda like wat was going around with
        solving 4x4x4 by solving individual 2x2x2 corners. Just something to
        think about.

        trying to keep on this path of lies. you started attacking people and
        i'm coming to the defense of myself and my friends, against your

        exaggerate their times, and took personal offense at what he said.
        > if you insult my country of origin again, it just prooves how much
        of a loser you really are, you have no valid arguments to defend your
        crappy performances and attitudes so you attack the country i live in.
        i don't call norway a frozen desolate shithole so maybe you should
        back off, feel free to quit responding whenever you've decided you
        look like a big enough idiot.
