Breaking News from 2016: David Blaine dies in the midst of a moronic stunt

without comments

My wife is convinced David Blaine is “of the devil.” I’m convinced his schtick has gotten old, and did so pretty much as soon as his first street magic TV Special aired. I’d like to make the not-so-bold prediction that Blaine will be dead within 10 years from either a specific stunt, or the cumulative effect of all the other ridiculous stunts on his mind and body.

Magician David Blaine has set a world record by holding his breath for 17 minutes and four seconds on Oprah Winfrey’s US TV show in Chicago.
The star was pulled from a water-filled sphere, and then said he had begun to doubt if he would achieve his goal as he considered his heart rate too high.
The previous record, which was 32 seconds shorter, was set in February.
