rubiks cube in a bottle So a snowboarding accident wipes out your plan to climb Mount Kilimanjaro? What then? You look for a whole new hobby, of course! But maybe one that’s a tiny bit less challenging to the body… but boggles the mind and tests the patience.

For Lee Greenwood, that means he’s taught himself to trap a Rubik’s Cube inside a skinny-necked water carafe.

Impossible is Nothing!

Seriously, I tip my hat to this fellow we call Scramblejam — deprived of one challenge, Lee just picked himself up and took on another one, equally “impossible” for the average person to do.

Oh sure, just like the magician’s tricks, of course there’s a secret to making an Impossible Bottle… but the real secret may lie in what my grandmother used to call “stick-to-it-iveness”!

Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.

  1. I solved a Rubik’s cube once, it was quite easy, there is a screw underneath the central square, if you uncover it, it is easy to handle with a screwdriver.

    (I actually did it, but I wasn’t cheating, I had to fix it when something happened)

    Now, the bottle is great, I’d certainly like to have one of those on my bookshelf. Tell me when they start selling in Europe.

    I solved Rubik’s Cube by painting all sides of it a lovely dark green. No, not really. But I’m with Claudia on this, all the way – it sure looks good, locked away in a bottle!

    Thanks for the props, Jen!

    I really enjoyed making that bottle – It may look simple, but it was quite a challenge. It now has pride of place on my desk, and is a great conversation starter.

    @Claudia, I have not (yet) managed to solve a Rubiks cube either… This seemed a better use of the one I had lying around.

    As one of the few people who could never solve one of those damn things, I am happy to see them locked away. ;) Now I have an excuse NOT to try. Heh.
