V-Cube Saves Area Man from Death

As you may have heard, it snowed a little bit here in Virginia last week. And before you say, "Oh, those silly Southerners! Four feet of snow is just a sign of spring!" we'd like you hear this true story of a local area man's brush with the snowpocalypse.

Billy was snowed in at home and, like most of us, was passing the time in front of his computer. Yetis are naturally frightened of microprocessors so this was a logical choice.

After updating his Facebook status with details on his dwindling pantry (canned beans, tacbac, and pickle juice) and tweeting "This sucks. #snomg" at least three times, Billy leaned back in his chair to grab his V-Cube--a 7x7x7 cube of Rubiksian frustration--to give it another shot.

Just as he leaned back and reached, a tree fell through his house and crushed his desk and computer. The tree missed him by two feet.

Was the internet punishing Billy for complaining about the snow all week? Did the V-Cube save Billy's life so he'd have a chance at solving it? Or will Billy meet his grisly end after solving the V-Cube and it no longer needs him to fulfill its mission?

Good luck, Billy. And don't bring that V-Cube anywhere near ThinkGeek HQ.

meaningless icon! I've got to get a V-Cube! My life depends on it! Maybe it'll save my life; maybe it'll end my arch-nemesis'; maybe it'll SAVE my ARCH-NEMESIS' life! Maybe the V-Cube will help me find true love; maybe it'll help my arch-nemesis find true love. The suspense is killing me!!
