God's Number is 20?

It has been determined that the Rubick's cube can always be solved in 20 moves or less. (God's number) See http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2010/...le+Feedfetcher

I personally think that 5 is sufficient. How about you?

Gee, even I can do it in a couple of hours. 30 years! Surely the hammer should have come out by now?
