    I did smile when I saw the homeless man smiling, I must admit, but I agree that looked like some pretty half ass change. One day I hope Canada (and the states one day as well) can develop better solutions to homelessness.

    Maybe Blaine gave it to the hobo before he started filming it? I dunno..if it was just a little trick like that link showed it`s a pretty cheap stunt for one of the most famous magician`s around. The british version (Derren Brown) seems a lot better! x

    They could have easily just given that guy the cup of coffee/money and then started the camera. He was sitting there with a full cup of coffee covered in a blanket thing. First, it`s kind of wierd that he had coffee; second, why did he wait till he got back to his blanket to start drinking the coffee? It`s a full cup. Looks staged to me.

    that was nice of him.but i think david blaine is a twat.all his tricks that he does he ALWAYS needs hospital treatment after and the doctors treating him could be spending their time with real patients that need it.and that trick when he came over here 2 london, sitting in a box and not eating, people are dying everyday from hunger and he doesnt eat just 2 get publicity.omg i really do hate him.hes not even a magician.any1 can do what he does(the tricks i mean), why, just last nite i had a 2 hour bath.thats nearly the same as his latest trick.

    people do realize that he`s not actually magic right? I mean every one seems pissed off when they find out he was just doing a trick with the cup, but you didn`t actaully think he was super natural, did you? The facinateing thing is comeing up with those tricks, developing slight of hand, david blane is awsome because he`s mastered the skill of illusion, not the skilles of ancient runes and magic spells. every magic trick you`ve ever seen is fake, no women get cut in half and the statue of liberty doesn`t really dissapear. it`s not "cheating", jesus.

    I know how to do that. I saw it online. You fill a cup really tightly with pennies or other coins, then pour coffee on top of it. You then shake the cup, loosening the pennies, and it allows the coffe to pour through. then you push up the bottom of the cup (which you pre cut) and the pennies pop up. Magic my a

    Has anyone seen the trick he does where he asks this guy what one thing he wishes he could have would be and the guy says he would love to win the lottery... Well David Blaine then goes into a store, buys three scratch tickets(whatever they`re called) and goes back to the guy and asks him to pick one. Well the guy scratches the ticket to reveal the numbers and BOOM he wins 1,000 dollars right there. It even shows the guy going to the lottery place and getting the money.

    Now that was the most crazy nuts tricks I`ve ever seen in my life.
