Mission 2.7: Learn to Solve a Rubik's Cube

The Rubik's cube has been a symbol of epic nerdery since the 1980s.  Once an impossible puzzle, now there are many well-documented methods for beginners.  Once you learn the basics, you should be able to solve it in less than 5 minutes.

There are many sites that can teach you the beginner's method.  I prefer Peter's Beginner Solution to the Rubik's Cube.  Be patient, work hard, and Rubik's glory is only a few days away.
