David Blaine's first TV special came in 1997 and was called David Blaine: Street Magic. David's magic was so impressive that the special was aired worldwide. David Blaine's third special came in 2001 and featured David frozen in a block of ice for almost three days. David emerged from the ice block weak and disoriented but otherwise unharmed.
David Blaine's most recent trick had him perched atop a 22-inch (56 cm) circular platform that stood 105 feet in the air for two days straight. He had no food or water, couldn't sleep or even sit down. After this two-day feat, David Blaine proceeded to jump from the platform onto nothing but cardboard boxes!

EVERTHING David Blaine does is what it appears to be. I am a fellow magician and will stick up for the man in saying that what you see is what you see. It MIGHT not be what really is happening but it IS what you see.

I think David Blaine is the best and when people say that he is crazy cuz of all the things he does, he's not. David Blaine does all of this for himself not for other's and I think it's great and one day I wish I was just like him.
