    It's best for the defenseless and weak!? You don't really think for a minute throwing cards will help protect you do you?
    Maybe if they were made of metal or something...

    It might be good if you're bored or an X-Men wannabe or something.

    I suppose if you threw them REALLY fast, at super speed, it miiiiiiight go as far as to catch your assailant off-guard.... Can't think of any more it might do, though.

    You'd be better off using mace or something similar. Did you see the extremely poor accuracy in the videos?

    If someone is truly serious about using playing cards as weapons, they would not be using a normal deck. Some sites do sell card-lookalikes with razor edges along the rim. Of course practice makes perfect.

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    Re: Card throwing

    I have tried it myself. It seemed like something to do when I wanted to do something completely stupid and worthless. I remember seeing a lot of people doing it at school or something close to that, but thinking that is cool or amusing is pretty pathetic. Ahhh, I lose a piece of my soul everytime someone says that is "Sooo coool"

    If I needed something to occupy my time with a deck of cards, I used that method to toss it into a hat, but I would rather play solitair.

    By the way, only a moron would actually take into consideration the idea of turning a deck of cards into a dangerous weapon. First off, it is nearly impossible to achieve pin point accuracy, and the only place you could really inflict any damage on the human body, would be the eyes. Even then you have to beat blinking. They put this myth on Mythbusters and it did horrible; they even made a robotic card shooter to see if it would make a difference. It didn't.

    A deck of cards made out of metal isn't really a deck of cards anyways, so it is just oddly shaped throwing snives or shurikens kinda.
