I don't understand the solution to "Cube route". How do you get from 6 to 8 to 5?

Yes, please tell us.

This puzzle (directions) made no sense.

As an engineer, I taped the strips exactly as shown in the diagram, with the tabs as indicated in the drawing.

Even trying to turn the middle strip inside out, it does not appear to be possible to have the route go more then 3 or 4 sides of the cube without any dead ends shown on the route (which to me meant an overpass/underpass had to be connected as well).

The directions implied that a route was possible using ALL the routes.

Someone PLEASE explain the answer, and how you traverse from one piece of paper to another. Are the back-sides of the paper also eligible as routes?

Why do all the controversial puzzles involve CARS?
