    I want to guess this was during Finals Week... haha.

    Very funny!

    Yes this is certainly a multi-tasking feat, but there's no reason to have to solve a Rubik's cube - the record is simply fastest time to recite 100 digits of pi which has been done in about 10-15 seconds... if those people can balance books on their head with a Rubik's cube then they can beat it, but the books? I'd like to see longest time to balance 15 books on head, that's impressive all on it's own!

    Hey Albert. First, totally agree re: only twisting the Cube. That said, that's the title of the record - no claim of solving it. Second, if you're not that impressed with the overall combo, I encourage you to step up and beat her feat. Put your money where your mouth is! :-)

    To be fair, all she did with the rubiks cube was twist it a little bit, she did not actually solve one that was sufficiently scrambled. It started out unscrambled and she only made a few simple turns that anyone can easily unscramble. Additionally, solving a rubiks cube is not impressive at all, even I can do it. Neither is memorizing 100 digits of pi. Anyone can do that.

    Really, the only thing impressive about this feat is the balancing of 15 books on her head and I am sure there is someone somewhere in the world who could do more than that.

    Aaron, tremendous observation. We will check again and modify as needed.

  • You guys... This is amazing, stop being such $$holes. You couldn't do ANY of those things. Sincerely, E and C

      WRONG! I can balance the books on my head while standing on a one inch in diameter pole!! OOHHH KILL'EM I would just grab 50, 10 paged books and get that done real fast.

  • The Internet Aaron Angert

    unfortunately that is only the first 99 digits of pi she forgot the 9 at the end.

    • United States IXI Xi

      your stuuuuuupid what's nine + ten? you didn't count the 3 before in 3.14 that nine you speak of would be the 101th digit.
