I have to ask because I'm not sure... are there people who can do that?

Those cubes with four and five cubes per row are HOT ! And i'm still trying to wrap my head around the pentagon-faced puzzles and the cubes with four and five bits per face... ? Nice !

There's a 7X7 one called a "v-cube" which isn't made by Rubik's, which is much sexier! I might skip 4x4 and 5x5 and go straight to a 7x7 v-cube. :)

And yeah, I need these weird shaped puzzles...

I stayed in a certain Teikoku Imperial (muahaha!) and stayed out all night with friends around Umeda. Then when I woke up, made a run to Sannomiya because I knew the Tokyu Hands there had puzzles. =)

I had TWO Osaka flights this month!!! Next month, though, I'm on reserve, so I can count on going to Saudi a lot.

What is a speed cube? I'm not familiar with the name.

It's a "Speed Cubing Rubik's Cube." It comes with two little screws and a bottle of lube, so you can take it apart, wax the inside, and also adjust the tension on each of the six centers. It has springs in it, too (not sure if the regular Rubik's ones have springs?) so if you don't exactly line up a side before turning it, it won't fight with you.

It isn't as great as I thought it would be, but it only cost about $5 more and it is really comfortable. Don and I wanna order a couple of DIY cubes off rubiks.com next.
