Flip through the cards slowly from the top to the bottom, with your thumb under the deck. 3. Have them tell you when to stop. 4. When they say stop, pull the top cards away, but with your thumb pull the bottom card with it, so it ends up on bottom of the top cards. 5. Show that card to the person.

We use the term "force" to refer to any situation when one disputant is made to do something against their will through threat. In Kenneth Boulding's terms, force is used when people are told to "do something that I want, or else I will do something that you don't want." Force does not need to be violent. It can simply be a coercive statement that says that if you do not comply with my demand, I will fire you from your job, or I will stage a hunger strike, or I will organize a work slow-down nor do anything else that is likely to harm the opponent in some significant way.

Essentially, forcing is accomplished when a bud (often on a cutting from a flowering shrub or tree) opens or a bulb is made to sprout out of season. Forcing will not be successful if the plant is not first allowed a period of dormancy, where it remains cold and in the dark for a time specific to the plant (usually a few months). When ready, slowly transition the bulb (or cutting) to room temperature. The growth will begin as it would in a premature spring. Keep the plant as cool as possible, especially at night, without setting it back outside.
The process of making a plant grow or flower before its natural season.
