A new Rubik's Cube record!!
An Indian Rubik's cube master broke a Guinness World Record by solving 2,474 of the puzzles in 24 hours while using only one hand.
Krishna Sai, 20, of Chennai, said he has submitted documentation to Guinness World Records showing how he solved the 2,474 Rubik's cubes one-handed in 24 hours, beating the record of 2,174 cubes set by fellow India resident Krishnam Raju Gadiraju in 2014.
Sai said he started solving Rubik's cubes under a friend's instructions as a child and he became interested in solving the puzzles competitively in 2014. He said he watched YouTube tutorials to get his average solving time to about 10 seconds.
"In competitions I was averaging at 15 seconds and once when I was solving at home, I hit a 10 second average -- that has been my best record yet. When I knew this, I was positive that I could break it," Sai told The News Minute of the one-handed record.
He said he worked to give himself a comfortable lead in the first few hours of his attempt.
"On the day of the challenge, I only took 2-5 minute breaks for the first few hours. I ended up solving 600 odd cubes in 4 and a half hours," he said.
Sai said the documentation he submitted to Guinness includes a video of the entire 24-hour event.
Even the partners HATE the Speedo!!
A new study has revealed that 99% percent of women wouldn't want to be seen with their partner if they were wearing Speedos.
UK-based beach holiday specialist On the Beach surveyed 100 people and results showed that only one per cent of women would like to see their partner wearing budgie smugglers on the beach.
Market research and data analytics firm, YouGov also named the swimming undies UK's most hated piece of clothing, even beating crocs.
Speedos were originally designed in the 1960s to reduce drag and provide freedom of movement.
"No matter how ready men's beach bodies are this summer, they might not make too many friends if they stride across the sand in a pair of Speedos."
The swimming undies aren't the only despised items, with leather trousers and Crocs placing second and third for most hated.
The company Speedo has since defended their budgie smugglers, saying: "Originally designed in the 1960s to reduce drag, support and provide freedom of movement for competitive swimmers, the Speedo brief has become an iconic silhouette that transcends both the sports and fashion world."
