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.


yeah, not sure about that one, probably some lame camera trick.

i really hate him too. i like on South Park when he ate his own head

Doesn't the brain need fresh oxygen every 3 minutes before it starts to lose cells? Even if he's holding his breath, wouldn't the oxygen just be absorbed immediately anyway and he'd then be suffocating himself? Is it actually possible to hold your breath for that long without experiencing brain damage?

One can only surmise that this has already happened to Mr. Blaine. ;-)

Blaine is an illusionist.


(anyone know where I'm going here?)



Thus, every stunt he pulls is AN ILLUSION.


He's not magic. He can't hold his breath for a week. He can't fly. He can't describe the infield fly rule using just his eyelids.

He does tricks. That's it.

That's what they said about Santa Claus, "He's not real, he's made up, blah blah blah."

Okay... well maybe I'm off on that one too....

Allright, you guys win. David Blaine IS magic.

Does that mean we all have to drown ourselves in the Reflecting Pool in Washington DC now?



(South Park reference, if that sounded odd.)

i thought he was more of a stuntman. like, he does stunts, pushing his body to the limit. i still don't like him though.

the levitating thing, doesn't he put like mirrors on the bottom of his shoes that come out or something? basically, when he tippytoes, the mirrors on the bottom of the heels of his shoes come down and reflect the ground so that it looks like he's floating? i don't know ...
