OBmaster (13 days ago)
My Example of 52! The whole population of the earth gets one deck of cards and shuffles once a second Every 10 Billion years stack one piece of paper. Once you have reached Proxima Centauri (4.25 light years away) - start another stack next to it After you have enough stacks to cover the whole United States - Do it another 2.28 trillion times.

Even though I was confused from the beginning to the end, I came away with the most important information in this video: I am the best sperm.
Cameron (21 days ago)
The key to card math tricks, is letting the other person believe they are in control. Let them choose whenever the outcome won’t change, and they will feel absolutely in control, and when they realize they never were, it will be that much more shocking.
Heilige Roekoe (21 days ago)
That last trick doesn't work if the person chooses to flip an uneven amount of cards at a time though
