David Blaine's 44 days in a glass box nearly finished...!

Just curious to know what all you guys think to David Blaine's stunt?

http://www.thisislondon.com/news/art...9925?source=PA


Some people have been really cruel - I don't think they expected us British to be quite so cynical and nasty!

Anyway he's nearly done it - out on Sunday, so what d'ya think?

Good stunt, or stupid idea???

I think the most pathetic thing about the whole stunt is that so many people have nothing better to do than stand around and watch the moron. However, I do salute the fellow(s) who were frying sausages below him the other day, I think that was hilarious.

LOL. Talk about a tease!

I haven't been following the stunt. Don't really care to either.

I didn't know David Blaine was doing this. Those of you who have not seen this guy in action are seriously missing out. He is BY FAR the BEST sleight-of-hand magician this world has ever seen. I hope he makes it. He's a godlike being of entertainment.

Yeah, yeah that's him in the snake's belly in that other post too! LOL! Sorry, this ain't magic though. A creepy looking guy with a hairy chest and silk shirt making the statue of liberty disappear, sawing a lady in half, pick-a-card-any-card, that's magic. Sticking yourself in a glass box for over a month is just an act of stupidity. Is Johnny Knoxville claiming magician's status now too? I remember screwing with other kids on acid back in highschool... "Hey man, I'm gonna put an invisible glass box on yer head" "Wha?" "I'm gonna put a glass box on your head and when I do you won't be able to hear anything ok?" "Whatever man" "Ready? Ok, I'm lowering the invisible glass box over your head" You hold your hands a little wider than their head and mime a box. "Ok now remember when I finish putting the box on you that you won't be able to hear anyth---" You lip sync the rest of the sentence and simultaneously someone mutes the TV. "Oh whatever guys, this isn't gonna work" Everyone else jaws silently at eachother, pretending to have a conversation, mocking the victim in the box. "You guys are f***in stupid, man it's not working.." Everyone else silently laughs at him, eventually the acid makes him wonder if there isn't really something wrong..."Alright, f*** off guys, that's enough, stop" You all laugh even harder, still silent. "TAKE IT OFF! F***IN ***HOLES! TAKE IT OFF!" There's a couple of mentally scarred people walking around out there who think I'm a magician too! hahaha

I'm really glad he's coming out. I don't know why he did this kind of stunt, but I like him a lot, too, so here's hoping he'll be okay.

MouseKilla - I'm not saying that what he's doing is a magic trick, I'm just saying that I hope he makes it out safely so he can be the next David Copperfield.

???? ooookay! I don't want to revive the religious snake handlers debate (fun as that was) but I'm reminded of it here. Sometimes I wonder if God compels some people to do suicidal things to weed out the stupid people. Sort of genetic housekeeping. Play with poison snakes, jump out of fully functional aircraft, bungee jump, lock yourself in a coffin and get dropped in the lake, stay in a glass box for a month and a half. I can just about here Him laughing as He gives the instructions to the chosen. Even if you get rich doing these things if you die doing them everyone will shake there head and wonder why you would do it in the first place and laugh at your ridiculous death. "Oh, he jumped out of a plane and fell to his death did he? Well what a stupid MF he was!" I saw a pic of this tool in the box and I couldn't help thinking of those fake "cat in a jar" things, hillarious!
