This was Stefan Pochman yesterday in the German TV show "Wetten, dass...?" and solving a Rubik's cube blindfolded underwater.

Holy HELL! I thought he would make it but I also thought the solving part would be 30 seconds no more. But he held his breath for 1:53 min and didn't even break a swet. It would take me longer to train my lungs for that feat than for learning to blindfold probably. 1:53 isn't bad but doable with some regular training but he didn't even care. Like he could hold it for another minute. Crazy.

@Alaskajoe:

When you concentrate on something, it's much easier to hold your breath.

If I try to hold my breath II hold about 2min30, if I concentrate on solving cubes while holding my breath I reach 3min10, that's a huge difference. You shoould try it's fun =)

Solve a cube blindfolded is not as hard as you think.
But solving it holding your breath underwater, is much harder.

I can solve the cube blindfolded too, but it takes me 10-12 minutes from this the solving part is about 3-4 min. Holding my breath so long is impossible for me.
