Capitol of Cards

Everyone as a kid at some point has either played cards, or even went as far to start stacking them into a one to five level card house. Most don’t dally long at this type of hobby as it generally is a test of patience (of which very few adults let alone kids have a plethora of), endurance, agility, and perseverance. The shapes and leaning patterns are always the same, and very recognizable in this video. Yet some how it’s all very very wrong. Obviously there are no little (or big) brothers around to ‘accidentally’ drop a football or cause a gust of wind, or even stop around too hard in this video. Some how, not matter what, the kids version always falls down. Maybe it’s more of a matter of physics, in that it is the order of the universe and all dark string theory calculations that any card house build absolutely must be knocked down. A little long, but nicely done video of just how carried away one can get with building card houses. But it’s always refreshing to see that some habits never die, and it’s a great bit of fun to show kids. It’s one of those things like magic card tricks that one remembers forever.
