I was doing a group project at school about cubing, and when we got to pick partners, I wanted to do it all by myself. There were some non-cubers in that class, obviously, and they of course wanted to be apart of the project with me. Being the nice person, that I am, I said yes. Keep in mind, these are non-cubers we are talking about. When we started working on the project, I had to teach them a lot on the different brands of cubing, because we were doing a project on the "Most Popular Cubing Brands". You would probably expect them to know nothing about them, but from them being around me a lot, they have pucked up a few things, ordinary non-cubers do not have the brain capacity to understand. Anyways, Later in the project, near the end, the were basically so knowledgeable, that they were cubers, whom could not cube. In the end, I recieved an "A" for that project, and they wanted me to teach them how to solve one, and have been teaching them since. As a side note, they still do not understand notation, after over a year. Apparently, they are still just non-cubers. Very knowldegeable non-cubers, that is.
