The Secret of the Rubix Cube

Do you want to know the secret to the rubix's cube? A Washington man said for $25 dollars he'll show you how. Rick Lukens has the story.

Nels Abramas has gotten pretty fast at solving the rubix cube.

"Ninety percent of us have that frustration. Since we were 10 years old when you had it and you couldn't do it," Abramas said.

Abrahams' also said he learned the secret after a one year trip around the world.

"I left April 3, 2006, through South America, Europe and Asia.

It would be cool if the secret came from a mystic maharaja, but he learned it from a couple of school kids in France

"Its not the test of supreme intelligence like we imagine it to be, but still it's impressive."

Ironically the first movie Abrams said he saw when he got back to the states was the "Pursuit of Happiness" starring Will Smith.

"He did the rubix cube as part of getting the job," Abrams said.

Since Abrams is looking for work he wanted some cube karma. "So I went to Fred Meyeres to get one they were sold out. Wow it must be an upsurge a new interest in the rubix."

That gave him an idea, but who would possibly take him up on his idea. Abrams idea is an easy step system. He taught it to 8-year-olds in Laos. Now Abrams, adds his rubix cube to his other skills on his resume since graduating school two years ago

"I have outdoor skills doing sport fishing in Alaska, and doing some firefighting in Utah and Montana."

Marketable skills if your hiking the Himalayas but not for what he wants to do next, which is "Hopefully become a history teacher."

But now, Mels has proven success as a teacher. It took a lot longer than three minutes and 45 seconds, but it is a skill he will have for the rest of his life.
