"...and damned if that thing didn't emerge solved".

Posted in by CIVIL CIVIC | Edit
For over a year I have been searching for an affordable and non-surgical way to manage Aarons irrational behavior, crippling phobias, acts of seemingly random violence and general anti-social behavior.

Who would have thunk that a popular puzzle toy from the eighties would not only take an iron grip on Aarons frightening imagination, but also render him docile and pliable.


Thankyou, Mr Rubik.

    if you lightly run a flame over it, the coloured squares become easily removable and re-stickable. take that mr. rubik!

    Come on Ramy. We have ETHICS, godamnit!
    ...and I'm sure old Doc Rubik still has a swimming pool filled with Swiss Francs in his back yard. He doesn't give a fuck what we do to his cube.

    Don't lie, you just want everyone to think you have ethics and integrity, that's not the same as actually having them.

    If you unstick the squares they get a bit manky and everyone knows you've been cheating. If you want to do it properly, what you do is, wedge a sharp object into the edge of the panel; the whole lot will click out of place and then you can just press it back into the new spot.

    I don't recommend you tell Aaron this though, because then not only will he have no more puzzle to keep him docile, but he'll be holding a sharp object.

    Christ, what thought.
    You're right of course. We have the ethics of hungry weasels, but there are lines we don't cross. Cube Fixing is one of them.
