    Default David Blaine delays 'demanding' sleepless stunt

    Sipa Press/Rex Features

    David Blaine has pushed back his latest stunt to stay awake for 13 days because it is so physically demanding.

    The illusionist has been training for the world record event, which was originally due to take place in New York in May, but he had been forced to push back the challenge until the autumn because his body might not be ready yet.

    Blaine told the New York Post: "This one demands a lot out of me. I run 13 miles a week around Central Park's reservoir. I'm down from 230 to 195 pounds in seven weeks. And of course I'm dieting.

    "My raw diet has brown rice, no red meat or animal products besides fish. Nothing fits anymore. My wardrobe's a disaster. I'm using belts.

    "I need to drop another eight pounds and then stay this way. It's not healthy to go up and down."

    Blaine's previous stunts have included him surviving inside a glass box held above the Thames without food or nutrients for 44 days and spending seven days buried under a 3-ton water filled tank.

    This is asinine. It is one thing starving yourself, but going underwater for days and no attempting not to sleep for nearly two weeks? It's out of hand. The guy needs to find another career before he suffers serious health problems.

    It's all an illusion, so of course he's not really doing it. However, it's still really dangerous to put himself in that position. I remember years ago he did that stunt in NYC where he stayed in some frozsen glass cube (or whatever it was) for like 6 days. Not long after that, a magician showed how Blaine got away with not really doing it. It's all magic, so he needs to stop pretending that he's really pulling these stunts.

    How exactly does he make money from pulling these zany, life threatening stunts? TV rights?

    He had a five show deal and the first one and only good one was street magic. So now he just does crap "stunts". I know the guy who doubled for Blaine when he was in the ice in NYC. Blaine was NOT in there the entire time.

    He's also very unhygeinic, cocky, and almost has a messianic complex. His intense speaking voice is a phisod and he laughs like a a bafoon. I think he was on the streets on his own as a very young kid so money and approval are VERY important to him. If he was mentioning his ex girlfriend, he would always say "My girlfriend Josie Moran", instead of just "My girlfriend Josie."

    One time he went to Pepperdine University campus to look for some "ancient, spiritual" book and I don't know if he got stopped or what, but he was carrying a brief case around with something like $100 grand inside. It was to show off, to feel powerful.

    Main Point: He's a douce, a stinky one at that.

    Going two weeks without sleep is a surefire way to trigger a psychotic breakdown.

    No doubt. ^^

    I don't think he did the ice stunt either.

    I used to have a boyfriend who looked like him....and therefore though he was hot
