Recently came upon two brand new Rubik’s Cubes to add to my collection. I brought them to work today so I could demonstrate my mad skillz and give the people who walk by my cubicle something to do. Towards the end of the day I decided to take one of the cubes apart and discovered something that practically blew my mind. . .
Every Rubik’s cube I’ve ever owned has had at least one thing in common: The axel on the inside has always been white. Always.
Well, when I took a couple of pieces off of one of my new cubes today, I was greeted by this sight:
PINK?!?!?! HUH?!?!?! What’s going on?! (btw, fyi, a “!?” is known as an interabang) I thought I had life all figured out when Rubik had to just flip everything upside down and give a Rubik’s cube a pink axel! I finished taking it apart and was left with this:
I was completely caught off guard and didn’t know what to do. I figured I’d take my other new cube apart and see if it was pink or if it had maintained the color of its descendants. I took it apart and saw this:
PURPLE?!?!?! OH MY GOD!!! WHAT IS GOING ON!!??!!?? DID RUBIK’S OUTSOURCE TO THE POWERPUFF GIRLS OR SOMETHING?!?!?! Ok, and all of this is while completely ignoring the fact that the Rubik’s logo is on the yellow sticker instead of the white one. I’m pretty much able to cope with that, but pink and purple axes are completely out of line. I see the world spinning before my very eyes, I’m getting dizzy! The colors, the colors. . .
