Result #280: I bought the playing card, inherited the hat but failed to fling all 52 cards into said hat.

#280: Practice the art of throwing cards into a hat.

The Resolution: Back before there was any such thing as the internet, people had to resort to strange parlor tricks to kill time. It seemed that every romantic comedy or sit-com would have a scene of a guy throwing cards into a hat as a way to cope with the turning point in the story where a relationship seems to be unsalvageable.

I tried it a couple times as a kid and remember it being fun but I never managed to work it in as a neurotic quirk.

This year I'm going to work on changing that by attempting to be able to throw all 52 playing cards into a hat that's at least six feet away from where I’m throwing.

Update #1: The Conclusion.

Date: 10-7-2015

As you can see from the photo above, I didn't end up practicing card flinging nearly enough. I didn't even own a deck of card until the beginning of this week but now that I have everything needed I'm going to keep at it until I can go pro and hit 52 out of 52 cards flung into a hat. Of course I will let you know if I ever manage to pull it off.
