I actually made an account just to say how stupid the angle of the fingers trick is. It is in no way accurate at all. My hand span is over 110* from thumb to pinkie, and my middle and ring fingers are not spaced evenly from my index and pinkie. Some of these are the dumbest things I have ever read.

you aren't supposed to stretch you're hand to it's full width. If you stretch you're hand just fare enough for your pinky to make 90 degrees with your thumb the rest of your hand will follow suite and thus by extension, making your comment incorrect. Next time measure it out.

The one about the cards isn't necessarily true. When you shuffle a deck you change the cards from their original order, yes, but it is entirely possible to shuffle it into an order that someone else has already shuffled it. Furthermore, there has always been 52 cards in a deck (according to Wikipedia, bear with me) so there are only so many combinations of a shuffled deck since it was invented. Assuming no two people have shuffled a deck in the same exact way, it is possible that you may still be the first person to put the cards in that order but it won't be that way much longer seeing as the world population continues to grow. It would have been more accurate to say, "it is likely that you are the first person to put the cards in that order".

After some math, I have concluded that there are around 80,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000... Although I was not as accurate as I thought, it is still possible to repeat one pattern. Yet and still although it's possible, your chances of doing this are one in eight Vigintillion...wow...
