He beats Houdini If I am right didnt he?

Some chinese warriors under torture could "come out" of their bodies (the soul obviously) so he did not fell the pain, some russians tried that on the cold war, so I believe he´s in a dorment state

Thank you, Panda. Most people here are just being retarded. And yes he went through 4 months of training to do this.

I think most guys who bash him naturally feel emasculated in his hardcore presence.

Haha. Boobehs. You wish.

Alright, first of all, Guinness would NOT stand for some false stunt and allow it in the record books. He`s OFFICIALLY the new record holder. And I also doubt that Oprah would risk her reputation and career to lie on national T.V. If he was going to fake it, Oprah would have to know about it. Besides, they took extra precautions before and during the stunt. They were even monitoring his heart rate, and there were people standing above the tank ready to save him because of how dangerous this stunt is, not to mention the intense training he must have put himself through to prepare for this. Honestly, he may partially be an illusionist, but when you go on national tv announcing that this is the real deal, you can`t lie about it. I mean he openly admits to when he does an illision trick. You can`t lie about this sort of sh*t. You`ll get your ass kicked.

Alright...normal air is only about 21 percent oxygen. Holding your breath with regular air can have a maximum of 6 minutes. If you can normally hold your breath for 3 minutes with standard atmosphere, you could hold it up to five times longer with pure oxygen, so around 15 minutes. I guess he can normally holds his breath at somewhere around 3 minutes 24 seconds. So I bet he was huffing pure O2.

it`s fake. He`s completely dry when he gets out, and when he`s getting out no water splashes out of the orb. It looks to me like he just filled the outside edges of the orb with water and set up some sort of wire system to make it look as if he was floating.

Ah, Blaine, you Git Wizard, you. I don`t really care if it`s real or not. He`s not entertaining. Or interesting. Faintly amusing though.

Come back to Britain, Blaine. Remember how well your last little stunt went down here?

Holy crap you people are retarded if you think this is fake.

He`s officially the world record holder. Guiness wouldn`t stand for a trick.

This video doesn`t show what he went through to prepare for this. It was intense. It definitely is possible. He beat the previous record of 16 and half minutes.

Also he inhaled pure oxygen for 23 minutes before he held his breath. Please educate yourselves before you start calling fake on David Blaine. He`s an endurance artist.

this guy needs to go the way of steve irwin(who i actually liked)...
steve: plays with big and/or dangerous animals, gets killed by a creature little kids swim with on vacation
david: spends 95% of his life under water, drowns on his morning listerine

David Blaine is not a Magician - He`s a Performer, who does Tricks on the side.

Standing on a pole for a day is not a Magic Trick.

Being incased in ice is not a Magic Trick.

Being submerged in water for a week is not a magic trick.

I thought it was (normally) 3 minutes without oxygen before your brain starts getting pwned.

And 3 days with no water and 3 weeks with no food. But what do I know, I`m an amphibian.

Like him or not, he now holds the world record for holding his breath. They wouldn`t have let him have the record if it was a trick.

^^ Under normal circumstances.

If the body temprature and heart rate is slowed enough it can be longer. there are cases where people have drowned in icy waters yet been breaough back to life an hour later. All I know is, he inhaled pure oxygen before he got in the tank.

I doubt it`s BS as he is now the official record holder for "holding his breath".

I call BS. I`m pretty sure bad things happen to your brain when you cut off oxygen supply that long.....even in heart attack patients who loose oxygen for roughly over 5 minutes could have some brain damage due to the death of brain cells. The only way you can usually do this is in extremely cold water and even then it isn`t a guarantee.

Mmmm. vandagirl said it. When it`s Blaine, my first thought is, it`s an illusion.

Of course he`s a magician and endurance artist, and i tend to foget the later.

Still...he`s pushing boundries and seeing what new limitations can be applied to the human body and mind.

It`ll kill him him eventually though!
