Hello here's some new information.
Hi there, Michael aka Livemike here.

For my first trick I will prove that random changes can create information/order. Take a new pack of playing cards, note the original order and shuffle thoroughly. Then put the cards down in a circle face up, marking where the first card is. The information in this arrangement of playing cards equals the sum of the log (1/(probability this card will be at least as close to it's original position as it is)) for all the cards. Use a spreadsheet to figure out the total information in the pack. Then start taking random cards out and putting them back in a random place. Before long you'll have notice the information is greater after one of the changes than before it. That is because there's nothing that prevents a random change from being the same change as that which would increase order.

Is this supposed to be making sense?

Hello here's some new information.
Card probabilities are interesting. I have learned many facts because I can do card magic. Magicians know so much about them you'd be surprised.

I disagree with this statement.
Half of us wouldn't be able to post here if that was a rule and the other half wouldn't bother reading anything if what was written was written by people not on some sort of drugs thus imploding the forum on a downward spiral of inactivity.
I swear the only reason people read anything I type even though I'm not on drugs is because I probably should be on some sort of drugs.
Drugs are not what makes the world go round but they are what stop you from getting dizzy while the world goes round. Without crazy people we can't have sane people.

Your trick is boring, (and known already, the world over).

If I werent on drugs, none of that would have made any sense.
