Anonymous asked: who did you murder to get this url?
We’re hipsters. We liked the Avengers before it was cool to like the Avengers. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I will just get back to my Chai tea and “Varieties of Disturbance” by Lydia Davis.

sveltecube asked: Hi, any of you from North Bay?
No, sir. Most of us are from well south of there. The furthest north you can find an Avenger would be in Santa Barbara where one of us studies at the UC there.

namelessnerd asked: How many times do you think people come to this blog looking for Marvel's The Avnegers? You chose the most confusing names for all of the fangirls on Tumblr...
We suspect a lot of people have found our Tumblr site whilst looking for hot pictures of Marvel’s Avengers to swoon over. If you are looking for a refund, please see our financial officer.
Have a good day!

US Nationals 2012 Follow-Up and Movie!
It has been two weeks since the ending of Nationals 2012. For me, Nova, it was a memorable experience.
From the four days I spent there (I arrived a day early to meet everyone and to vacation with my family as well), I met new and old friends, challenge myself in competition (I got an average of CALVIN.FAILS), and filming for my movie.
Everyone, except Nova, got spectacular times for themselves and the public. Captain America/Daniel Chan landed a 13-second One-Handed Solve, Torch/Austin Reed got himself a 1.58 2x2x2 Single, and Sentry/Deven achieved the North American Record for One-Handed.
Everybody had an extraordinary experience in those three days. During the 3x3x3 Finals, it was the first time I experienced how intense the environment became.
Imagine you being a finalist. 200+ pairs of eyes staring at you, countless cameras focusing and recording your movement, and soaring expectations from the Speedcubing community. All of that is resting in your conscience. It’s you, your cube, and all the practice you’ve put in.
I left the day after the competition was finished. With new friends, incredible memories, a smile of joy, and an exhausted body. From that day forth, I decided to take speedcubing more seriously, practice more, and hopefully be World-Class one day.
To common folks, some see speedcubing as a waste of time and/or don’t understand why we keep on doing it. To them, they don’t see the perspective of how we see it or see that our reasons for speedcubing applies to them and their own hobbies. For many of us, it’s to clear our minds, to focus away from other negative aspects, to challenge ourselves and our limits, and many others. It’s exactly why others like dancing, singing, skating, and other hobbies - because it reduces stress and we enjoy it.
