Recently a close adult friend saw me constantly fiddling with cards. Its a natural instinct for me at this point and it helps me retain focus. She said, "your smarter than those cards. You shouldn't waste your time with cards. You really dont want to pursue this. You can do something more constructive in building a career." I take card magic with passion. To have someone imply that cards and intelligence is an antonym, struck me. Do cards have a bad reputation? How do you think cards and intelligence correlate? Why do you think cards are often referred to mischief, and corruption? Thanks.
