Every time you shuffle a deck of cards you are making history by creating a new unique order of cards that has never existed before. If all the approximately 6 billion people on Earth began shuffling a deck of playing cards one time per second for the next 100 billion years we would not even come close to fulfilling all possible card combinations.
