Re: As for that time...

Most humans in competitions _do_ use speed cubes, which are designed to avoid unfortunate accidents like popping or corner cutting and then disassembled, lubricated, adjusted and reassembled at least twenty times during the lead-up to a competition. The first adjustment ensures that all of the cube's parts will be turning at top speed with exactly the amount of friction required while the next nineteen or so are just to give the cube's owner something to do with their hands while waiting.
