Unstickered white plastic Rubik's Cube and Cuboids at Olympic closing ceremony? Is this what Konstantinos meant by Olympic Cubes?

Accidentally ran into this. A crystal Dino Star!

Also known as a Merkaba, a crystal that heals the body with swirling fields of light... Why are we wasting money on medical research when Dino Stars can heal all ills?? I knew it! :D

I was just working out some little chop moves in gelatin brain, when I looked over at the TP forum side advertisement and saw this. Uncanny. No moves after the fact. Just took the screenshot.
Could google be somehow using little chop images I have posted to target advertisements with an image matching approach? Or am I just tuned to see what I see?
Strange...

If you know me, I can't blame you for thinking I might be joking, but this is the straight truth.
My confirmation bias is off the charts.
So weird not only to have it look like the puzzle, but also look like the move I just found right then.

I found this in my science textbook earlier today. It looks like a 1x1x1, 2x2x2, and a disintegrating 12x12x12. It is an explanation of how the speed of dissolving things increases or decreases due to surface area. Also, please don't mind that the picture is upside-down. :D

When I saw this my first reaction was... what manner of twisty puzzle is this? It looks like something Oskar would make.
