Description: Playing cards were often seen strewn across the sidewalk where locals had previously been playing games together.  The Action Researcher/Performer bought a deck of cards and adhered white contact to the back of each.  Numerological descriptions were written in Vietnamese in black marker pen onto the white contact surface referencing the number on the front of the card.  These words described attributes that a person with this number would have or could aspire to achieving.  These manipulated playing cards were then placed back onto the footpath next to other found cards.  The cards were left with their regular (numerical) side facing up, so the numerology forecast would only be revealed if a passer-by happened to pick them up.
