My future husband is from Renton Washington, and is capable of doing something that I am not. Kevin Hays is absurdly skilled at proof that us weak, fleshy humans still have some fight left.

The 19-year-old ‘speedcuber’ from Renton, Washington shows off his absurd skills by completing six increasingly complex cubes in just 6 minutes and 23 seconds, smashing the previous world record by a good 30 seconds. He starts off with a simple 2x2 cube, moves on to the traditional 3x3 cube, and then goes bonkers by plowing through a 4x4, 5x5, 6x6, and impossibly complicated 7x7 cube. All without breaking a sweat.


This is not the first record for him, last August, Kevin solved a 6x6 cube in record time. He’s been at it since his freshman year in high school, but says that it is not just tons of practice that’s turned him into a champ. It’s serious brainpower.
