There are some unanswerable questions that have forever haunted us: What is the meaning of life? What came first, the chicken or the egg? And how in the heck do you figure out Rubik's Cube (No, changing the color stickers doesn't count!)?

The iconic game -- which has sold more than 350 million units en route to becoming the world's best-selling toy -- is still going strong, almost three decades since its advent. And with that in mind, the Web site has been launched, empowering young aficionados of the cube with insights, tips and help toward solving the puzzle (Seriously, where was this Web site in 1985?).

And don't think its just a game either -- its a powerful learning tool, as well. According to Rubik's Cube officials, "those who have mastered the cube say the puzzle has increased their self-esteem, made them feel smarter and more willing to take risks, helped them overcome their fear of failure and even made them more outgoing."
