Rubik's Cube Championship

This week, Yu Nakajima won the Rubik's Cube World Championships in Budapest. In case you can't tell, he's Japanese.

Stop the presses! An Asian boy actually won a competition that celebrates high-end problem solving and spatial recognition AND requires absolutely no social skills? The next thing you're going to tell me is that a Chinese boy won the FORTRAN Programming Championships, or a Korean boy was inaugurated into the World Mathlete Hall of Fame.

Don't bother me with this useless news. I was a three-time champion Mathlete myself - and I'm the dumb one in the family. Wake me up when an Asian boy who wins these competitions actually has a decent haircut.

Okay - to be fair, the guy who came in second place was an American - named Andrew Kang.
