I always thought the Rubik's Cube was an impossible puzzle that could only be solved by either picking off the stickers or burying it in a closet where it couldn't taunt me. Not only are these magic cubes solvable, but people solve them fast. Like really, really, fast.

Collin Burns broke the record during a Rubik's Cube competition on Saturday at Central Bucks West High School in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. His time will be acknowledged by the World Cube Association, replacing the previous record held by Mats Valk from the Netherlands, whose time was a leisurely 5.5 seconds.
