David Blaine bought his first deck of magic cards at the Disney store, and from there has become one of the craziest magicians of our time. David Blaine has frozen himself in a block of ice, levitated and stood 105 feet (32 m) in the air for two days... Is there anything David can't do?

David Blaine started out as a street magician in New York and quickly won over the rich and famous of the city. Soon he was performing his tricks at private celeb parties and making friends with the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio.

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!

1 Check out some of these other crazy tricks that David Blaine has wowed us with:

  • David Blaine was buried alive for seven days, six-feet under New York's Riverside Drive.
  • David held hands with a spectator at a dinner table, and a glass of wine exploded.
  • David Blaine hammered a nail all the way through a board using only his bare hand.
  • A woman's watch was stolen by David and then appeared in a jewelry store window. David Blaine then put his hand through the glass and grabbed the watch.
  • Two girls' cigarettes were lit with David's fingers and then he ate a cigarette.
  • David Blaine changed a stranger's empty crushed beer can into a visually full beer.
  • A young boy's fear of snakes was overcome when David ate a small snake and had the snake reappear in the boy's backpack.

1 He is totally real. He did all that stuff. It was on TV.

1 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.

1 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.

David Blaine's Magic - Believe it or Not?

  • Yeah, I think he did all those tricks.
  • His tricks have to be real, I saw them on TV.
  • No way he did all those magic tricks.
  • Maybe he did a few, but there's no way he was buried alive.

{I don't know much about Outertale, so pardon me if I get this wrong, but it takes place in space, right? You'll have to help me a bit. .} (("Um... Ok!" Papyrus accepts the sketchbook, opening it to a fresh page. "What do I do first?"))

"I'm fine, but thank you for the offer though!" Blue said happily, looking up for a moment, before continuing his work. (the story seems to be going nowhere in Underswap... a suggestion of visiting Outertale has been given)  (PunMaster smiled. "It's not too hard. You just have to practice. Want me to show you?" She offered)

{Oh. Well. I had hoped we could've done something with that... but, nvm then.} (Just saying, when a Sans uses a "short-cut", I like to pretend they creates a wormhole that goes into the void. Iron teleports, which is him warping space and time to make himself be in another place. He uses this power to also travel to other universes.)  When I saw nothing in that infinite nothing, I returned to my-... No, their house. I could smell spices and meat cooking, the scent wafting from an open window. ​I teleported into the kitchen to see Blue, as he had said, cooking tacos. ​"Need any help?" I had been cooking for myself most of the time, since I was almost never at home with Paps, so I had acquired some skill in the matter. ((Papyrus begins to see his face etched into the paper. "Wow! You're amazing! I-.. I couldn't do anything like that..."))

Papyrus was indeed not in the void. He'd been in the middle of teleporting to his room.  (She didn't respond for a little bit, erasing a few ghost like lines that worked as the original faint outline. "Us." She responded)

In the blink of an eye-socket, I had scanned the entire underground, blinking in and out of reality to check every possible location. ​He wasn't there. ​I checked the only other place left, teleporting into the infinite black that is the void. "Hello? Papyrus? Please tell me you're not in here. Did I miss you somewhere?" ​(("What are you drawing?" Papyrus couldn't tell from the early sketch.))
