Face down, nine-edge first is the proper way to insert card decks in the IBM 1402 and 1622 punch card readers. I first heard this phrase used in a nerd poem entitled, The Last Bug:

He died at the console,
of hunger and thirst.
Next day he was buried,
Face down, Nine edge first.

-From The Last Bug
