    I'm sure many of you have read this already, but wow i feel really bad for the guy that his trick was destroyed!!

    He takes alot of time and effort into doing stunts like this only to get it ruined :( 

    Btw he is WAY better then Chris Angel, without a dought

    Oh sorry lol, he was suspended by a wire around his feet and apparently when he went to go dive, the wire caught him and ruined his dive.

    I have no idea what you are going on about. I thought the trick was just staying upside down for 3 days? What exactly was ruined?

    It was ruined when they lied about the trick and had him stand up every hour for 10 minutes to "check his vitals."

    People need to stop calling Davd Blaine a magician. A trickster, sure...A performance artist, sure...An attention whore, most definitely.

    Well it was called "THE DEATH DIVE" i'm sure you did read that... The point was he tried extremely hard to stay upside down, no food or water for 3 days, and then make a dive, but for some reason the wire connected to him caused him to "float away" says CNN...

    Point was after his stunt he was going to do a last trick and it was destroyed by faulty equipment...

    The funny part is david blamed it on bush saysing his speech changed the winds of his trick :lol

    He is neither, he is an "illisionist" plain and simple.

    I mean yes it is for attension, but give the guy some props you know?

    Hmm, I'm watching the video now. I did miss that, I thought it was just about his upside down crap - assumed he would have to break out of something as it fell to the ground or something.

    I'm not even sure what that was though, the bullet thing was cooler than the finale.

    It doesn't look like faulty equipment though, he didn't seem surprised by what happened, I think it was just a lame idea.

    David Blaine: Couldn't care less, to be honest. Got bored of him during his 'Living In a Box' moment (80s references ftw)

    When they change the definition of "Illusionist" to read "Scam Artist" then I'll be more than happy to give him his props.

    Also, why so much praise for this guy, but not for Angel? Angel is at least doing tricks that are dynamic and exciting, whereas Blaine resorts to "endurance stunts."

    Well from the excerpts from the speech, it sounds like that finale bit would have pretty much been the same thing, yeah? Whisked away by balloons or whatever.

    Still woulda been lame.

    Because Criss Angel is a Hot Topic douchebag who walks around like he's watched The Crow just ooooooone too many times.

    Plus "Mindfreak"? Seriously? Ewww boy.

    At least that's what most people I know think about him.

    I await the day David Copperfield comes back and murders Blaine and then rides off into the sunset. Blaine is almost as annoying as John Edwards... I thought Chris Angel's big trick was crying and cutting himself...

    So, it's the tired emo vs the crow emo. Sounds like you are a fan of magic. Seems like a silly reason to dislike a magician and discredit his ability.
