Remember the three jacks card trick? That one your uncle used to do, where the three jacks are placed at the top, middle and bottom of the deck, then end up magically together? Or maybe you remember the one where 21 cards are placed in three piles of seven cards each, moved around, then a chosen card ends up smack in the middle. When you were a kid, you might have thought those were pretty cool tricks.
