    Learnt how to solve a Rubik's Cube and miraculously forgot. Multiple times. Relearnt again and again only to forget. Never got to actually speedcube since I'd take too long trying to remember how to solve the thing.

    Did play with yoyos but never was all too good. And didn't really get them expensive gimmicky gear. What actually got me back in for a bit was the short-lived yoyo craze about 8 years back when the anime Chousoku Spinner (aka Super YoYo) kickstarted the trend.

    Ahh good times. How I missed them so.

    Had (possibly still have) a yo-yo, which I assumed was a normal one with rubber in case I hit it into something(for newbies). Instead it turned out to be an off-string yo-yo for the pure masters. I used it a couple of times, but that was all.

    I used to own a Rubik's Cube and was trying to solve it on my own, but then a baby cousin tore all the colored stickers off. That was the end of that.

    Since then, I have had the occasional urge to get into speedcubing, though I'm having trouble finding a good Rubik's Cube around here. Most of the ones I find in stores are cheap knockoffs.

    I have a couple of Yomega Fireball yo-yos stashed away. But my interest in them is hanging by a thread.






    I'm sorry too.

    Yes. I tell you a number, and you calculate the cube of it in your head as fast as you can.

    Bah, kids and their fancy numbers. In my day, you counted with your fingers, your toes, and the stumps where your brother's arms used to be. They just don't make farm equipment like they used to.

    Is that what they mean by "counting on each other"?
