In my childhood, I was fascinated by this character called Gambit from the X-Men, who could charge a playing card with 'kinetic energy' and toss it at the baddies, where it would explode 'with the force of a grenade'. Evidently I didn't do too well in school physics, but my imagination went exploring uncharted territory.
Today's doodle (with the helpful arrow indicating which way the cards go) is because I played too many games of Solitaire on the bus to work.
