Look More Intellectual in 2009 with Rubik's Cube

I have an affection for key chains, phone straps and lanyards. Since the beginning of my blogging venture, I had accumulated one A4 paper box load of those toys. Yeap, I kid you not. a box. Huge A4 box. Don't know how big is that? Stack 2000 sheet of a4 paper together and you get the box.

In all my collections of "toys", there are toys made me look cute, interesting, old, pedophile, hentai and everything imaginable. But none of them actually make me look or feel intellectual. Well, today changes all THAT as I have purchased myself a Rubik's Cube.

What's a Rubik's Cube you ask? Well mrgluedtothemonitor, according to Wikipedia, Rubik's Cube is

A 3-D mechanical puzzle invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Ernő Rubik. Originally called the "Magic Cube",[citation needed] the puzzle was licensed by Rubik to be sold by Ideal Toys in 1980 and won the German Game of the Year special award for Best Puzzle that year. It is said to be the world's best-selling toy, with over 300,000,000 Rubik's Cubes being sold worldwide by 2005.
But, how does this little useless information make you look or feel more intellectual? Ah ha! Normally Rubik's Cube are around 7 cm box. This is of course a cumbersome sized to chuck around and pull out when in subway or bus. But you can now get a Rubik's Cube Key Chain!
Standing at 3cm and half the sized of it's brethren, this key chain Rubik's Cube is as much headache inducing as it's brethren. A perfect Key Chain as I found out this few day, the Rubik's Cube can fit into my jeans with no noticeable bulge and also be left hanging out of my pocket for others to see while I am strolling the street. Giving me more street creed and intellect to boot!

Available at Toys "R" Us for less than 8USD or RM25, go grab one now to feel or look smarter. Just remember, don't turn the puzzle around if you don't know how to play it. You might not be able to get back the Rubik's Cube back to the "solved" position anymore.
