David Blaine Is At It Again...

Magician David Blaine has begun his latest amazing stunt during which he will attempt to hang upside down for sixty hours!

Not continuously though, he does takes fifteen minute breaks approximately every hour where he gets to stand upright. These breaks are so he can drink water and have his vitals checked.

Sounds a lot less amazing when you hear that part.

The stunt will finish with Blaine taking the "Dive of Death", where he will fall forty-four feet to the ground though!


I lost interest in him when he stopped doing street magic and became a fauxgician/stunt man. His continued fame is inexplicable to me considering how many people you can watch hurting themselves and doing stupid things on television and YouTube for free who don't garner this much media attention.

Here are a couple of funny videos spoofs of David Blane's simpler beginnings as a street magician...

That guy is such a tool. He did something in Bryant Park once, and me and my friends went. Most of the crowd was taunting him, going, "Blaaaaaaaaainnnnnn" over and over.

David Blaine sucks.

Those videos were funny though.

I suspect Davey needs attention to subsist not only financially, but more vital as a mental and physical need. If it is not given he will just wink out of existence.

What is magical about hanging upside down for an hour?
