David Blaine...

...was great at street magic, wasn't he? Should've stuck to that, cos he can't out-weird the Anti-Christ. I love how he's going to hold his breath for, like, days or something and no-one cares. How fickle we are.

Matt_c has a much more interesting post on this, by the way.

I think The Now Show put it best:
"Blaine was said to be shocked at the treatment he was given by members of the public in London, but does not expect anything but the same support he has always recieved from his fans in his own country. Yes. But we've set a precedent now :)"

I do wonder exactly what happens when he needs to take a leak though...

And from what I've read the whole breath holding thing is actually pretty dangerous and the git-wizard could die, so fingers crossed...

I used to watch David Blaine's show just for the street magic.

People look baffled, the camera wobbles a fair amount and Blaine turns a playing card into an eagle that flies through a window. And then he jumped a bit.

Brilliant!

I heard that he could infact use pure oxygen during the holding-his-breath attempt, which means he can hold his breath for longer. But yes, there is a big chance it could go really wrong.
