    David Blaine

    Anyone else think it's hilarious how the public are not taking to this load of rubbish he's passing off as magic?

    So far:

    Eggs
    More Eggs
    Some guy banging drums during the night to keep him awake.
    Eating in front of him.
    The laser pointer that he thought was a sniper
    Golf Balls
    More Eggs.


    I urge all people in the UK to go there and try and annoy him some more!!!!
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Illusionist. I watched some of it when I was at my mate Rob's house and so far it's topping everything on the boringness stakes, even Big Brother...

    What you have to understand is it's not magic, it's an illusion. And since an illusion is something that you appear to see only part of, has anyone wondered what he's got in the water? A guy's gotta get his nutrition somewhere...

    20...that's a rather big number :(:(:(

    The water theory has been brought up.

    Personally I think he's a bit of a t*** so find the people taking the mick very funny.

    Apparently with the laser he thought someone was trying to shoot him and started panicking!

    It's not impossible for all the required vitamins and nutriants to be passed through the water. It's just an illusion after all.

    Well apparently the water is pure water, they said so on Sky One...

    Although thats probably a load of rubbish...

    Is David Blaine american? Surely only an american would mistake two youngsters messing around with laser pens for a guy with a sniper rifle... I found it hilarious, i wish i was watching on Sky one at the time, that would have been funny...

    If i lived in London, i would be down there lots taking the mickey, its funny how people interact with the live camera because they can be seen on TV (its live 24/7 like big brother)... Its more a test of what will be thrown at Blaine, not whether he can survive or not

    But the whole idea is based around him only receiving water?!

    If he's receiving anything else then he is conning the public?

    Rik, man can survive for days without food (not very healthily) but requires water. Hence the cliche desert scenario.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    But Marc with all those eggs flying his way he just needs to open his air hatch and catch a few, then fry them on the glass (must get warm in the sun)

    I think the lasting 44 days/nights just doing nothing is a achievment in itself, I mean you guys have all said you've watched what 10 mins or so and was bored as hell, think how he feels, nothing to do 24/7 at least you can walk away and put your TV/Comp on, go meet your friends etc the most I've ever seen him do on the sippets I have seen is write/draw in a book.

    I read in a report the stages of the task in how after so many days he would experiance this and that, and the only reason he cut it to 44 days is on the 45th you would lose your sight :S

    LOL I have no idea and iam not about to try it for myself to find out! - However I saw in a paper and on the news that some guy did the same thing and for longer back 50 years or so, so maybe he wrote about his experiance and what happened day by day?
