Pakistani American comedian Kumail Nanjiani plays Dinesh in the new HBO comedy “Silicon Valley,” about the absurdities of startup culture.
"What’s interesting is that a lot of these guys have a lot of money, but they don’t really know how to party. So they’re sort of partying in their own world.

I love this toss so much. And it’s actually really easy to do.
You lay the silk flat on the ground and put the (in this case paper/glitter) on the silk near the pole. Then roll it up until it’s all covered by the rolled part.
When you toss the silk will unroll and release what you put in it at the peak of the toss.
things go in flag, roll flag like burrito, clench tight until you toss, burrito goes poof, things rain down, pretty
