David Blaine has completed yet another one of his “every-one-is-more-dangerous-than-the-last-one” stunts.. this time hanging upside down by his ankles for 60 hours.  My opinion is that what he really wants is to find a way to die in front of a lot of people, preferably on live television.

If he keeps up his trend, I don’t doubt that he’s going to somehow manage to find a way to pull it off.  It’s odd really, there was a time when somebody doing stuff like this would end up locked away in a facility with a 16 foot high barbed wire fence installation, yet today Blaine and people like him pull stunts like this and end up managing to earn hideous amounts of money for it. 

I honestly have a hard time understanding the whole thing.  Frankly I don’t know what’s more disturbing, the fact that he pulls stunts like this that look to me like he’s trying to die, or the fact that there are millions who would be more than happy to watch him do it.
