    nope that was last night....


    he's been in a bubble of water, submerged and breathing/eating through tubes for a week, and last night, the finale was to hold his breath for 9 minutes, thus breaking the world record, before leaving the bubble.

    he's had all kinds of complications, his skin has started falling off, and massive damage to tissue due to the overexposure to water...

    to cut a long story short, David Blaine, the tool himself, fell unconcious 7 mins into his world record attempt, and 'failed miserably'. He is now in hospital.

    He decided not to do this in england this time largely down to the fact that americans are so gullible as to lap this up and hail him a god (ref: south park episode 504 - Super Best Friends) - whereas in this country - the uk - he was pelted wit eggs and ridiculed for sitting in a box for way too long.

    my opinion? - TOOL

    He's a tosser and it would appropriate for something to remain shrivelled forever.

    I went to see him in the box at London Bridge, which was actually a larf, considering it was just a man in a box...

    His skin must be fooked after a week in a tank. Don't wanna see the pix...

    He should try getting trapped down a mine for 13 days, or in a Russian submarine for his next stunt...:rolleyes:

    Blaine is a joke.

    His 'feats' consist of doing something uncomfortable for a long time.

    He is never in any real danger and he has never proved anything.

    The real heroes of human endurance are concentration camp survivors, soldiers who fight in impossible conditions (Winter War...), eskimoes, aborigines, astronauts, terminal cancer survivors, submariners, early sailors, trapped miners (Australia...), prisoners of conscience... etc etc.

    I'm not counting athletes because I dislike the willful destruction of the human body in the name of "sport" (endorphine highs).

    Shitting in a goldfish bowl is pathetic attention seeking.

    Did you see his 'interview' with Damon Holmes on GMTV? Quite funny.

    I liked him at first, with all his card tricks and mind tricks and stuff, but he's taken a turn for the worst with first the box, and now the goldfish bowl.
    David Blaine on Bo Selecta is the great mind fuck of all time though :teeth:

    makes about as much sense as hating on mountainclimbers, or danny way for skating the great wall of china.
    its a fucking stupid thing to get started on, yeah hes standing on a pole for three weeks, what, that affects you?
    im starting to think its an internet phenomena type thing though, ive never actually met someone who spends time ragging out on david blaine.

    I'm not ragging on him, I got better things to do with my time. But as far as entertainment, its not interesting to watch a man sit in a tank of water for ages IMO

    fair enough, and as far as poor media goes theres more where that came from, and as per usual you change channel if you dont like it. seems to me like its more for the recordbooks than actual television, which does make sense if you take a look at some of the things people set records doing, spaghetti eating or shoving poolballs up their ass or what have you. its a strange thing to do but there is nothing under a rock thats news to me.
    but im not talking about you here indi im talking about people who are so strongly opinionated about each and every thing in the world they freak out over david blaine, even justifying it to themselves with this ludicris 'whats the point of that' argument calling him a cunt for trying to set a record. seems to be quite a few of them, all of them owning a computer, posting on internet messsage boards. i emailed brian mung, who wrote a flash animation about david blaine asking why he disliked him so much to which he replied 'i just think hes a bit of a prat really' which explains precisely nothing. i wasnt really aware of the stunt until now, im looking at the pictures and the set up is unbeleivable.
