New 3×3 Record: 36.15!!!

I honestly didn’t envision breaking my first sub-40 solve. I had returned to my original Rubik’s 3×3 which was lubed by a student of mine and whose turning was smooth! However, after a few hundred solves, it lost a lot of its luster and I returned to my A1 for a short while. Once again, my first two layers were just average. However its last layer was one of those rare, easy layouts. Two algorithms and, oh! it’s solved!!! I was surprised, actually, and then reached up to stop the timer. It was probably a sub-36 actually! In any event, it’s only my second sub-40. Not bad!
