I, personally, have always HATED rubik’s cubes. These darn things have gotten my goat pretty much every time that I’ve sat down to try and solve one, and I personally consider myself a fairly intelligent person. I think I just don’t quite understand how they work, nor am I the type of person who is patient enough to deal with not figuring it out after only a minute or two.
Well, much to my chagrin, there are actually far easier ways of solving these demon cubes, as per TikTok creator Craig aka Faw4BRT.

Apparently rubik’s cubes are fairly easy to solve - if you know the trick to them. Which, up until now, I didn’t. But the very first thing you are going to want to do, according to Craig, is go ahead and try and find any side that has a ‘cube’ of four similar colors all in one corner. This could be any of the colors, you just want four in a single area.
Then take the right side and turn that clockwise once, then take the top and turn that counterclockwise once. Keep doing that over and over (and over), and eventually you’ll see that, rather than solving the cube, it is actually solving itself. The colors will literally flash across the cube until you have all of the faces matching. It may take you just a little bit, but you won’t have to do anything else, such as think or try and make sure that it actually ‘works’.
Now, to go show off my ‘magic skill’ to anyone I can get to sit down and watch me for a couple of seconds.
