This guy set a world record by solving a Rubik’s Cube in 4.59 seconds

What the ...

Try to comprehend what you’re watching here — because it’s impossible.

23-year-old SeungBeom Cho did the seemingly impossible over the weekend when he set a new Rubik’s Cube world record by solving the puzzle in an astounding 4.59 seconds.

The most-coveted record in cubing (yes, that’s a thing) was set just over a month ago with a 4.69-second solve by Patrick Ponce; now that has been bested. The record has yet to be made official, but people inside the community are accepting the 4.59 mark as the new record.

It would take me a lifetime.
