I am relatively new to the whole idea of cubing, in fact I do not yet
even own a cube. I am a littel confused as to what the state of the
art is in solving an actual randomized Rubik's Cube. Are these
algorithms so complex that they are only usable with computer aid, or at
least pencil and paper? Or are they such that, handed a random cube,
you can just sit there and (given sufficient time) put it right?
