Rubik's Cube 5x5
|Erno Rubik was a Hungarian sculptor and architecture. He wanted to solve the structural problem of moving parts so he build
himself a cube shaped mechanism to work on the difficulty.
He wasn't thinking of inventing a new puzzle but after scrambling his cube he tried to put it back the way it was and realized that it was a quite a challenge. He was quick to see the possibilities and got a patent for his Magic Cube invention. It was renamed Rubik's Cube later.
The first Rubik's cubes were sold in Budapest toyshops in 1977 and by 1979 the Rubik's Cube was selling around the world.
This plastic cube comes in different arrangements. They come in 2 the Pocket Cube, 3 the standard cube, 4 called Rubik's Revenge, 5 the Professor's Cube and the really hard to solve 6 and 7 cubes.
The standard Rubik's Cube is the 3x3x3 arrangement and has nine flat color squares on each side making a total of 54 squares. Each square is covered with a colored sticker and the trick is to get each color together on the same side of the cube.
The Rubik's Cube is considered to be the world's best selling toy. Over 300,000,000 have been sold so far.
Contests have been set up to measure the faster cube solvers worldwide. The first official winner solved the cube in 38 seconds in 1981. To make the cube move even faster, the cube is lubricated with petroleum jelly. Interesting Rubik's Cube contests have arisen like blindfolded solving, underwater and using a single hand or ones feet to solve the puzzle. As of today (2011) Feliks Zemdegs holds the world record at 5.66 seconds taken in solving the cube puzzle.

Dear Rubik's Cube Fans,
I am writing to you in behalf of your Heavenly Father. He is seeking you like a lost sheep. You remember the Bible story? It is about a shepherd who has 100 sheep. But when he brings the sheep home one night, one is missing. He then leaves the 99 sheep and goes out into the wilderness until he finds that lost sheep.
In this parable the shepherd goes out to search for the one lost sheep-the very least that can be numbered. So if there had been but one lost soul, Christ would have died for that one. To read more click Lost Sheep
