Rahere, Clive Bindlet was not typing to you, you arrogant idiot who types random irrelevance in order to try to act smart. Not to mention quite a few of your wordings are nothing more than puzzles.

He's a bit wrong about what the suits represent. Firstly, just to go over, there are for classes of people: the nobility, the clergy, the bourgeoisie(merchants), and the peasantry. By middle class I assuming he means merchants. Now clubs actually represent the clergy. If you notice the club is in the shape of a cross. The nobility had spades and the bourgeoisie had diamonds. Hearts were representative of the peasantry.

Nice job: Note the 'Queen of Diamonds' acts as a 'hypnotic trigger' in the first installment (issue) of the 'Manchurian Candidate' starring Frank Sinatra and Laurence Harvey ... Black & White movie era ! Queen of Hearts is popular in 'Alice in Wonderland', known through the popular phrase 'Off With their Heads.' The 'Red Queen syndrome' becomes a 'survivalist metaphor' for natural selection in some of the scientific literature. The 'Red Queen' also becomes an 'AI' program guarding the underground 'Hive' in the 'Resident Evil'...Zombie Apocalypse series.... staring actress Mila Janovich as a futurist 'cloned Alice' (down a different kind of rabbit hole) designed to save mankind from a Zombie worldwide epidemic !

Also the back of bicycle cards have a design that lets you know what card and suit it is. Unless they changed it already

You chose a lot of images of mustachioed Kings of Hearts, after making a point that he has no mustache.

The ace of spades being the death card is something i known sence childhood, iam not sure its just superstition i guess its how you use it some people tell fortunes With playing cards and i guess thats how it got its dark meaning.

"Deck of Cards" is a song sung by many artists. It highlights the almanac portion even more than you did in the video. "When I count the number of spots on a deck of cards, I find 365, the number of days in a year. There are 52 cards; the number of weeks in a year. There are 12 picture cards; the number of months in a year. There are 13 tricks; the number of weeks in a Quarter. There are 4 suits; the number of weeks in a month." https://youtu.be/7o9l1Z1UGtw

Your wrong about Trump cards... Trump means to Triumph over all other cards when it is the only suit. Trump cards are the strongest card except when playing spades which is just Trump played with spades to be disrespectful to the king or queen. Or not to play in with your heart.. Idiot.

You gave us the names of the kings (names that are actually the same that are written on the BP Grimaud cards) : Charles = hearts, David = spades, Cesar = diamonds, Alexandre = clubs. But queens and jacks also have names. Jack of clubs is Lancelot, the knight of the Round Table. Jack of diamonds is Hector, the trojan prince. Jack of spades is Ogier, a danish knight who served Charlemagne (aka the king of hearts which is a little bit strange). Jack of hearts is La Hire de Vignole, a knight friend of Joan of Ark. Queen of spades is Pallas, also known as Athena the greek goddess of wisdom. Queen of diamonds is Rachel and queen of Hearts Judith, both being characters from the Bible. Finally Queen of clubs has been named Argine, which is an anagram of Regina, the latin (and italian) name for queen.

I knew about the 52 to cards and the relationship to the calendar and seasons. Many prisoners use a deck of cards as a calendar and a Bible.  One thing they didn't mention which is somewhat commonly known is that  Aces and eights is known as the dead man's hand because it's the hand that Billy the Kid was holding when he was killed.

The given history of playing cards was very fascinating and of great interest to me ! During the winter months, my family gathers every Friday night of every week, and enjoy playing various games of cards! It will be interesting for us to watch this video together before we begin our card game.......It will be the topic of the evening while we play the game of the night ! Thank you for sharing your info.

At the near beginning of this video (.31), describing the phrase "To follow suit" ..... It depicts a woman in a power suit pointing the way for a bunch of sadsack men. That's as far as we got. You can take this BS video and it's feminist subliminal messages and shove it up your ass.

There is no mention of the Tarot, which, if you take out the Major Arcana, exactly parallels the modern playing deck.. Except for the Joker, who is the equivalent of the Fool. Glaring omission.

maybe the king of hearts had a girlfriend who didnt like it when they kissed that she felt his mustache hairs so he had to shave it and later his girlfriend broke up with him and it felt like he was stabd in the heart!!! (remember he is the king of hearts) possible?

If you faro shuffle (out faro) perfectly 8 times in a row the deck will return back to the order it was in before your first faro shuffle.

The king of hearts is not killing himself it's the queen of spades that's murdering him. checkout the sleeves on your playing cards they match.

if i made a deck of cards,it would have fancy designs for all the ace cards and the names of all the royal members would be printed (with the jack of hearts being called "Jack") and the jokers would be jokers and stuff and stuff and stuff and stuff and CARD TRICKS

duh on the king of hearts he is being stabbed by some one unless he has 3 arms
Raziel Salvatore (5 months ago)
Why does the King of Hearts have four hands on the picture? I believe that the Queen of Spades took out king of hearts. First evidence is look closely at the sleeves on the Queen of Spades and the other hand holding a sword on the Kingdom Hearts. Every other face card does not have sleeve.

THAT WAS A BADASS VIDEO, BRO! REALLY ENJOYED IT! I'll be honest... I've been playing with cards for almost 25 years now and even like to think of myself at this moment as a semi-pro card player and yet I think I maybe knew 1 or 2 of the 10! GREAT VIDEO AND GLAD I WATCHED! #ThumbsUpButton

They aren't sticks, they are wands.  Those are not bells, they are orbs.  How do you figure the king of hearts has no facial hair?  He, obviously, has a beard!  It's not a rifle shuffle, it's a riffle shuffle.

If the King of Hearts is stabbing himself then he has 3 arms, which is why logical people reach the conclusion that he is being stabbed by someone else.

#5 is not correct, no matter how I try I can't get 365 by adding all the cards
P J Rupe (6 months ago)
Number 5 interests me in that 52 cards (52 weeks in a year). Originally in the 1800's there was only one joker, but then in the late 1940's 2 jokers were incorporated into the decks for the game of Canasta. The four seasons corresponding to the four suits and then adding the value of the cards plus 1 for the joker was quite interesting. The most mind blowing was the maps in the card. I had heard of this before, but still find it quite amazing.
