In the March/April issue of mental_floss magazine, Neil Janowitz caught up with Rick Smith Jr., the guy who holds the world distance record for playing-card throwing. We promised some videos of Mr. Smith in action. Here you go!

If you were hoping for a 34-minute card throwing tutorial, you're in luck.

On something called Master of Champions (Oksana Baiul is involved), Smith explains how he got into the card-throwing game, then shows off a bit.
