Friday fun or frustration

Time sink

If you haven’t seen the Grow Cube before then you are lucky and I do apologize for bringing it to your attention. I realize that it’s been around for a while, but some may have missed it. [No thanks to Marc Rittle for the link.]

If you don’t have hours to kill then a search for grow cube solution on your favorite search engine should do the trick. But I doubt you’ll appreciate it if you don’t spend at least a bit of time trying to figure out the solution on your own. No comment as to how much time.

    But Steph, you’re missing the whole point then! Well, at least half the point, which is that it takes so much time precisely because you’re spending half of it figuring out what’s it’s about in the first place. I’m concerned you have not made a full switch to graduate student life yet if you don’t see this kind of game as a perfect motivation to spend some time away from your work and puzzle over it instead.
