(and yet, it's been a dream of mine to be so good at that.)

practice, practice, practice. And its okay to not be able to solve it right off. And the first time I solved it by complete accident and had to work out what I had done in my head. Then I messed it up again, and couldn't solve it for a week. Then I figured it out. And now I just work on speed.

The world record is something like 10.5 seconds, and that involves some serious algorithm memorization and "finger tricks." Those are nifty to watch.

But I think what a lot of people hate about the cube is that you HAVE to mess it up to solve it; you can't get one face and then solve the rest without messing up the first.

And if you are able to get the white face completely solved---that is to say that if you can get the white on top and then the first layer of the cube solved (so there is a red, green, blue, and orange side), then I can teach you how to solve for the rest. But you have to understand how the cube works first.
