Is it easier to figure out a murder/mystery or the rubix cube?

    Is it easier to figure out a murder/mystery or the rubix cube?

    I know one has nothing to do with the other but they are both puzzles in a way. So just curious which one would be easier for you to figure out?

    Oh, lol  this is a good question.  For me, a murder/mystery is way easier to figure out than a rubix cube, which I have NEVER been successful at.  Interesting Q.  What about you?

      I prefer murder/mysteries too! I've never figured out the rubix cube. smile

    It's easier to figure out a rubix cube. When you get stuck with a rubix cube you can just peal off the stickers, and put all of the colors on the same sides. Yes this may be cheating, but it works and helps you keep your sanity.

      ROFL!!! Or buy one like I did that all of the little squares were the same color.

      Yes that is the easy way out....LOL Murder mysteries are at least interesting to figure out instead of a bunch of colored squares. smile

      Twisting and turning and peeling off stickers (just kidding)  Now the 5 x 5 is too hard for me.

    I have never been able to figure out a Rubik's cube. When it comes to mysteries, I do great at the CSI computer games and when reading novels. I don't think real life murders would be as simple to solve as the games, but I bet I could do that (even though I've never been trained to) before I'd ever solve the Rubik's cube.

      Agreed! Rubix cube is just very difficult. I've never figured it out either.

    The murder mystery is easier for me to figure out the culprit than solving the Rubrix Cube.
    The cube is a solo endeavor where by the mystery can be shared by many to try and solve..
    It s also a lot more interesting!  :-)

      Agreed!!!Plus murder mysteries are more fun to figure out as opposed to colored squares smile

    The last Rubik's cube I bought came with a nice booklet that shows you the twists you need to solve it and how to get it started, so I'm gonna go with the cube. 

    What if there was a crime scene where the only clue was a bloody Rubik's cube?

    1. moneyfairy profile image73
      moneyfairyposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      I never had the booklet just the cube. As for the bloody rubix cube?haven't a clue. Thanks for answering.

    A murder mystery is easier. I read them all of the time. I watch them on TV. I used to have the Rubik's Cube and believe me, it was definitely harder. I think that I did it once - maybe twice.
    The Cube is easier if you are into all types of math, sure.

      moneyfairyposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      I watch them from library dvd's all the time. (Miss Marple,Midsommer Murders,Inspector Morse,Pie in The Sky) I've never figured out the rubix cube. Thanks for your answer.

      I read the books, magazines from home, library and watched the shows or movies on TV/DVD/CD

    Rubik's cube is easy.You just have to learn some algorithms by heart.My cousin who is 15yrs old can do it in under one minute time.
    Here is a video tutorial:

      I'll have to check those out. Thanks for sharing. That 15 yr. old cousin of yours must be really good at math.

    Although I've never solved a REAL murder/mystery and have solved a rubix cube, I'd have to say the rubix cube. Only because I seem to have a knack for figuring them out midway through novels; and if you're speaking of an actual murder/mystery, I'd hope there are more unsolved rubix cubes in the world than murders smile.

      Bravo to you for solving the Rubix cube. I guess I watch too many murder/mystery movies they seem more interesting to me. (Agatha Christie,Midsommer Murders,Miss Marple,Pie in the Sky)
