EAST LANSING, MI – Robbie Daniels, fourth grader at Glencairn Elementary school was a middle-of-the-pack student, underwhelming in the eyes of the girls in his class, and an all-around forgettable personality.
But all of that changed when Robbie brought his Rubix cube to school last Tuesday.
Against all odds, Robbie completed the blue side of the coveted puzzle cube in front of his classmates at show-and-tell. The event lasted a show-and-tell record 46 minutes while Robbie shaped and reshaped his cube at the front of the room—but all was worthwhile in the end. Robbie, who has received numerous requests from peers to finish a side for them, has since whittled down that time to 31 minutes and has garnered a deep respect from both teachers and classmates alike.
When asked to comment, Robbie explained: “Pick any color. I can do any of the colors.”
An updated story says that Robbie can now complete one whole side and also get the middle stripe of a second side. Needless to say, the world can expect big things from Robbie Daniels.
