The 33-year-old magician will perform his latest stunt by living underwater for seven days and nights in a "human aquarium" in front of New York's Lincoln Center. He will conclude by attempting to hold his breath underwater longer than the record of 8 minutes, 58 seconds. He will receive liquid nutrition through a tube and the water will be kept at a balanced temperature to help keep his core temperature close to 98.6 degrees F.
And is it as boring to everybody else that he is doing this? I mean, the dude is getting food and air among other amenities. I could do that. In fact, it sounds downright comfortable. What I really want to see is Blaine living underwater without oxygen and food. That's magic. That's real talent. Either that or I want him sleeping with the fishes.
