Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

I was addicted to the hokey pokey, but I turned myself around! ("If it is true that humans share 44% of their DNA with bananas, then how, when, and why did it become so much more difficult to drive a stick-shift? Answer me that , eh!")

While we're on the subject of facts and figures ......, when you shuffle a deck of cards chances are that no one has ever shuffled them in that order before!

e think card games are pretty limited because there are only 52 cards, but it’s ridiculous how many combinations you have in these 52 cards. There are, of course, 52! possible combinations (remember the factorial thing above?), which is a humongous number:

1 / 8065817517094387857166063685640376697528505440883277824.

That number is beyond astronomically large, but that’s exactly how many ways you can arrange 52 cards. So when you’re shuffling a deck, shuffle it properly – and chances are you will create a completely new arrangement, one that no one ever created before.
