I grew up in the 80’s, which was a very colorful time. We moved from New York to South Dakota right as the country was transitioning from disco to MTV. Micheal Jackson was at the peak of his powers, and I was finally starting to become a human (I don’t remember much before I was 6), so I was starting to get immersed in pop culture. I got my first cassette player, started listening to the radio and started watching cartoons. Before the 80’s was taken over by The Transformers (at least for me), there was this magical cube that took over the everything for a little while.
That’s right. I’m talking about the Rubik’s cube. It had 6 sides, with nine little mini cubes on the face of each side and 6 different colors. While I bought into the craze for a little bit and watched a show on TV that featured a guy that could solve the cube in like 6 seconds, I moved on from it pretty quickly. It could be that I wasn’t very good at solving it (IE I never solved it) or because the math on randomly solving it was way beyond my math comprehension, it just never really caught on for me.
Nowadays, they offer it in multiple different brain busting ways and there are still people doing the math to figure out how to solve them fast. What I don’t like about the Rubik’s Cube is the massive amount of combinations that have to go right just so you can solve for one side. I remember solving it for two sides once and I was beyond excited to the point where I didn’t touch it for a week, so as not to mess it up.
Sometimes I feel like getting a job has the same amount of combinations that have to go right in order for me and a place in order to score a job that even remotely seems like a fit for both me and them.
