Excluding reflections?[edit]

Is the solution count really excluding reflections? Since the pieces can't be reflected, this count should only exclude rotations.

Surely if you memorize a solution you can solve it faster than 7 seconds? 83.146.12.169 (talk) 01:15, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Dubious[edit]

A 'dubious' tag has been added to the first sentence:

The Bedlam cube is a solid dissection puzzle invented by Bruce Bedlam[dubious ].

However, evidence for the statement that Bruce Bedlam is indeed the inventor can be found on the official Bedlam Puzzles site. JocK (talk) 23:30, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

It was invented and first marketed by Les Heaton from Plymouth (UK) by around 1990. He's now known as Bruce Bedlam. (I can't find its history documented anywhere online.) Badger60606 (talk) 19:13, 17 March 2016 (UTC)

Dragon's Den Offer[edit]

The Dragon's Den offer listed is incorrect. Theo and Rachel were to get 15% *each*, for a total of 30% of the business and a total of £100k. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:645:4202:88D0:C015:F48A:B07C:EDE6 (talk) 04:22, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

World record time[edit]

I have been unable to locate evidence for Aleksander Iljasov's 7.77 second record.

  • The guiness book of world records, cited as a reference, lists DANNY BAMPING's 11.03s record from 11 SEP 2006 [1]
  • A norwegian news article reportedly documents the record, but it's paywalled.[2]
  • A youtube video claims to show the 7.77s record, but the timer actually says 8.16s.[3]

If the official guiness site isn't kept up-to-date, I'm not sure how to verify whether these claims are legit. I'm marking the claim as disputed for now.
