I'm trying to get faster in decoding the next card in Richard Osterlind's BCS, so I've been practicing during my commute. While I could just think of a random card and then try to quickly figure out which card is next, I discovered that if I ask Siri to pick a card she comes back with a random choice.

Because I'm a geek this is much more fun to me then just thinking up a card on my own. Smile

You could turn this into a little effect if you have a n--l wr--er. Write down your prediction and then have somebody else ask their phone to pick a card. It turns out that the card Siri randomly chose is the same as the one you wrote down beforehand.

WOW! Great find! Appreciate it, I was happy that Siri could flip a coin. But this is very useful.

This also works with Amazon's Alexa and Google's Assistant.

Having a spectator ask Siri to pick a card is also a great N.W. or index effect as well.

Now if only you could have it say your force card (when you want it to) after having it saying the random selections.
Just my two cents.
