Underwater, Right, See You Later Then

David Blaine's off again, this time he's going to spend a week underwater and try to break the world record for holding one's breath. There's no doubt of course that this will be some trick, not least because holding your breath for 9 minutes (the record is 8'58" according to the article) is certain to give you serious brain damage (if you're not suffering from it already).

So wot u sa so wot so wot, and rightly so, but the bit in this article that angried up the blood was the comment that

"Anytime he's done anything in New York, the reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. New Yorkers are cool about this kind of thing."

Referring of course to the treatment Blaine received on the South Bank, where people would hozz eggs at the box and deliberately eat massive burgers in front of him and rub their stomachs yum yum comedy style. And quite rightly too because we all know it's a load of bollocks. It wasn't him in the box the whole time, there were lookey likeys swapped in and out when the box was "cleaned" every couple of days.

New Yorkers aren't "cool" about this if they "touch the sphere and offer their support". They're fucking stupid. I vote to throw a hungry shark in, and see who makes who disappear. Magic is bent.

Brings back memories of a 'who can lean over the bridge the farthest' competition in my youth...
