    I wouldn't last a minute in a gyroscope. I'll ride roller coasters all day long until they kick me out of the park, but you stick me on those teacups and I lose it.

    I hope he dies. He's not a magician, he's an attention whore.

    I've been anti Blaine ever since I found out he's the Ex of Josie Maran I mean WTF? :mad 

    And yeah those stunts suck. I rather watch Kris Angel at least he's cool if not a bit eccentric with all that goth stuff.

    Sky in the UK had a constant 'DAVID BLAINE' logo on the upper corner of the screen. Its in all of my Armada Unicron Battles episodes.

    "Up to" eight revolutions per minute isn't really that bad. That's close to one per ten seconds. Pretty slow for a "magic man".

    Yeah, but two days of one revolution per ten seconds? That's just under 18,000 revolutions. Even if it were in a stable, repeating pattern, it's still going to destroy any equilibrium you had.

    Same here, its really damned annoying!
    Still, the sooner the Media stops giving him attention, the sooner he'll go away!

    This does, however, increase the chance that he'll be so wobbly after getting out of the thing that he'll wander/spin into the street and get hit by the Magic Bus...or a regular one.

    How is that "magic"? Then again how is anything he does "magic"?

    I'm as clueless as you, buddy.

    He truly is, isn't he? Seriously, David Blaine must be smokin' some shit to make him think he's a magician, but he isn't.

    When he has to pee it’s going to be like a lawn sprinkler.

    I don't hope he dies, but I do agree with the rest.

    I know how he could tweak the stunt just a bit to earn my respect.

    Do his two days in a gyroscope followed immediately by a highwire walk between two buildings at around 30 stories, no net.

    The greatest trick David Blaine ever performed was convincing himself he didn't suck.

    Anyway, this is stupid. With any luck, they'll 'accidentally' crank that gyroscope up to about 300 rpm and forget about him for about a week.

    Yay, another endurance test. Yah.:/

    But, I guess I can see him spinning, if I have time to take a stroll in the city.
