    THE LONGEST BREATH HOLD EVER
    THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST


    How long was the longest breath hold ever?

    On April 30, 2007 David Blaine was on the Oprah Winfrey show, not just for an interview, but to also make an attempt to break the record for the world's longest breath hold of 16 minutes 32 seconds set by Peter Colat.
    David Blaine did beat the record, spending a soggy 17 minutes 4.4 seconds in an acrylic bubble filled with water.
    But.......Although David Blaine's record is recognized by Guinness, it is not recognized by the free diving community due to the fact that he spent 23 minutes breathing pure oxygen before his attempt.
    FromWikipedia: Static Apnea should not be confused with the Guinness World Record for holding the breath underwater. Guinness allows inhalation of oxygen prior to the athlete's performance, while such inhalation is strictly forbidden according to AIDA's rules for the recognition of records para 3.9.
    According to AIDA, the record for the longest breath hold is owned by Tom Sietas at 9 minutes 8 seconds which he accomplished in Hamburg, Germany in 2007.

    Big deal. I've seen kids throwing tantrums in grocery stores that can hold their breath nearly that long. He's just an overgrown creepy brat.

    On a funny note a few years ago one of the networks had a sitcom in development starring John Stamos about a newly divorced guy trying to get back into the dating scene. One of the funny subplots involved his new girlfriend's apartment being in full view of her creepy ex boyfriend, an obsessional magician, who had himself suspended midair in a glass box during a trick that allowed him weeks of being able to peer into her windows. I was pissed it wasn't picked up because the David Blaine-alike plot sounded really funny!

    Well for you that wondered what his next.. thing will be. He said he's going to try to beat that record for staying awake the longest..he's already made it 4 days slept 2 hours and made it another day.. so that is his next stunt.
    He's afraid of going insane though.. then suggested..he may already be.
