Several people have noted that there must be something sick about
a bunch of people whose "do it" bumperstickerisms are all
UNCOMPLIMENTARY, viz., "faster", "in under a minute"....
It so happens that cubists like to do it faster instead of
slower. Or by twisting faces. There are those who allege that
anyone who would try and try to solve the dumb puzzle is sick, or
that anyone who would solve and scramble a cube tens of thousands
of times is sick. Lots of people can't imagine anyone finding
joy in hacking. It can't give the satisfaction of the personal
communication and conquest of marketing, for instance. This goes
for many interests.
My mother always told me that I shouldn't play with my cubies.
