No Googling...what is the claim to fame of Minh Thai?
"Torture doesn't work" lol
Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

Minh Thai was the winner of the first World Rubik's Cube Speedsolving Championship, in Budapest and 1982, which I remember happening at the time. I had a seriousness geek-out moment when I met him earlier this month.

I doubt that the lady I was thinking about could have solved a Rubik's Cube with her talent...

LOL. Gotta say, for a written medium, Danny and Brian have some great comic timing.

Here's one: who is Jeff Stone?

But:

1. NOT me.
2. NOT the magician and fellow Café member Jeff Stone.
3. NOT the baseball player.
4. NOT the fictional tv character.
5. NOT the writer of Kung Fu books for children.

In other words, it's the Jeff Stone of fleeting fame. Do you remember him?

Jeff Stone of course was the kid on the Donna Reed Show. Why oh why do I remember him? It's so embarassing. Lynn
