Good question. Maybe it did. Maybe it didn't.
When I was in the 5th or 6th grade, I solved the Rubik's cube. Some people knew, some didn't.
When I moved to Florida, nobody knew I could solve it. It basically never happened. In fact, they placed me in remedial math, with students who couldn't add or subtract.
That was a real treat. In fact, I went the next 5 years without speaking basically or raising my hand to contribute in class, although I was on the honor roll every quarter.
Not one teacher made an effort to know a thing about me. And I didn't offer any information to the contrary.
I would say, if a kid can solve the Rubik's cube and nobody's around to see it, did it ever happen.
Well, yes actually. Here's a video I created on how to solve the cube:
So if any of my teachers from middle or high school are still around, have a watch. This would probably be the first time you realize what my voice sounds like.
And so it goes~!
PS. as a follow up, I purchased a copy of Camtasia Studio on Cyber Monday 30% off. Good stuff~
