Good lord

Sometimes I think I can be obsessive with problem solving.

An Englishman finally got to celebrate solving his Rubik's Cube puzzle after 26 years of trying.

"I cannot tell you what a relief it was to finally solve it," said Graham Parker. "It has driven me mad over the years. I would lie awake at night thinking about it."

When his final wrist twist was successful, Parker wept.

I bet he did. The thing had been ruining the poor guy's health since John Mellencamp was still "John Cougar." Well, you've got to admire his stick-to-it-iveness... I guess.


Damn! I hate people like that.

I smashed mine with a bat, about an hour after I got it home.

I guess that's NEGATIVE points on stick-to-it-iveness.

Who knew?

On the other hand, I may have saved myself over a quarter century....but I tend to doubt that.

That bat was not only a lot easier, but a lot more fun to use.

No, no. I really don't. Are you sure this wasn't an Onion piece? Really?

Someone should mess with him by sneaking into his house and replacing the solved one with a jumbled one. The guy clearly won't be able to help himself...
