David Blaine

Postby EnFuego » Mon May 01, 2006 6:57 pm

Alright how does this man do the kind of stuff he does?

I WANT EXPLANATIONS. :-D

He's spending a week in a water tank at the New York Aquarium, after doing such things as balancing on a small platform for 35 hours, being buried alive in a see-through coffin for a week and surviving inside a massive block of ice for 61 hours.

I can only think of one explanation. He is possessed or a ghost... :-?

He's living in the aquarium for 1 week.

He is holding his breath under water for 9 minutes.

I was curious-

The water should be nice and clear; he will be fed and, uh, relieve himself by tubes.


:-P

I really hate David Blaine for reasons I can't explain. He's just seems like such a pompous idiot.

He's going to have some seriously pruney fingers after 9 days...

I think he does stuff just on willpower. I believe he's doing these things - they're all possible.

I'd like to see how he "levitates." I've seen his Street Magic shows a couple of times on Discovery or whereever they're shown, and I can't figure that one out yet.

Blaine, 33, has been training for this most difficult challenge with a world class elite free-diving team led by internationally renowned trainer Kirk Krack. Other members of Blaine's team are Martin Stepanek and Mandy-Rae Cruickshank, both multiple free-dive world record holders. Free-diving or breath-hold diving is a competitive water sport without any underwater breathing apparatus. (from an ABC report)

He's going through tons of training. I'm sure lots of people can probably do this. The living in the tank thing also just doesn't impress me too much. I mean if i was getting paid as much as he probably is, i'd be willing to try any of this stupid stuff

I have the same problem with Joe Rogan.

Everyone hates Joe Rogan.

I like Blaine though and have seen that Street Magic show a handful of times. I think it's on TLC.
