This Week I Learned to Throw Cards


*click*
See what’s trending at the moment?
Huh card throwing
*gasp*
*music*
I want to find out how long it will take me to learn to throw playing cards?
I think a good Milestone for this one is to throw a playing card and have it get stuck in a piece of fruit
So this is Day 1
hour zero
So I’ve never done anything like this before this is completely new to me.
Attempt 1
*music*
Don’t suppose anyone’s ever played 52-card pick up
*music continues*
ah
oh
oh
huh
Its just wedged in between the apple and the microphone stand so er
I think going for throwing the card straight into the apple was maybe a bit ambitious
for the first try so what I’ve done is I’ve got myself a piece of foam insulation board and
I’ve spray painted it green and the reason I’ve spray-painted it green is in post-production
I can change this to be whatever I like so I thought this would give me a bigger target to work on my technique
Before going for anything a bit more ambitious
So this is my target board and you can switch it on by just er
And er you can er choose what you want on it, so just er
and no er
There we go perfect, okay. Let’s do this so
Oh that was close
ha ha easy as that
oh
oow
ahohohoho
Ah Yes, getting it now can make we make 3 in a row
agh almost
oh
pretty successful though
I would really like to be able to do three in a row on this Target board?
I think that’d be a good measure of success so that’s a miss
1 that’s 1 1
1 2 ah 1
nah
one
Ah one
agh
one
Two come on. Let’s make this three yes
haha
Yes
So I think I got my technique down and the trick is how you grip the card
It’s not how hard you threw it is
How you grip it and?
The Grip allows you to Spin the card, and this is what keeps it from just flopping in the air and slowing down
so I got it like this and what I’ve done what I’ve changed this rather than
throwing it as hard as I can I’m throwing it a lot softer and
concentrating on really getting the flick with my fingers and that causes the card to spin and
Fly through the Air much faster, than if you just float it randomly
*dramatic music*
*gasp*
*ding*
ha
*gasp*
haha I did it Kim
hahahahah yes
yes
hahaha
Was it jack of clubs
haha look at how perfect that is right in there yes
very good
haha
yes
