I laughed before I even viewed the animation! :D
Awesome! Man, if it were always that easy… :)
It is also possible to pry a corner piece loose — and from there, disassemble the entire cube (except for the center squares of each side), and then reconstruct it in ‘solved’ form.
I never tried the disassemble method. I got a cube for the SFX for this cartoon, maybe I’ll try it!
While I was in California, I worked at a local arcade known as the “High Voltage Nickel Arcade” in Bakersfield, CA. My boss bought all of the arcade’s prizes from some cheap-o Chinese order catalog where you could get like 5 tons of prizes for $10.00
One of the most popular things he had for prizes were knock offs of the Rubik Cube; people were always getting those things. The only problem was they were cheap shit and broke all the time and fell apart.
The arcade had a rule, no returns or exchanges on prizes, but considering that some people spent so much money there, I’d usually let them make an exchange at least once. At some point I had a box full of these shitty Chinese Rubik Cubes and their guts, so while I was bored, I’d sit in the back and reassemble them and then put them back out for prizes.
What I didn’t realize at the time is, they are puzzles and they are designed and assembled in a very specific fashion so that they could be solved (they even came with instructions on how to ‘beat’ them). And here I was just putting them back together anyway I could. I laughed to myself as I realized I must have handed out like three dozen Rubik Cubes that were unsolvable.
Yeah, that does kinda suck! :)
