David Blaine Breaks Record

I have always been a huge David Blaine fan, and have always persisted that he is a million times better than Criss Angel in every way.

Not too long ago, Blaine tried to break the world record for holding one’s breath under water and failed. To be fair, he sat submerged in a tank for several days before the stunt, and he missed the mark by about two minutes. Of course, after spending days under water, there were some unforeseen effects on his system and he went unconscious.

This time, he did things a little differently, and was able to pull off the stunt. David Blaine is now the official record holder for holding breath under water with a time of 17 minutes and 4 seconds. Check out the full article for some interesting details (like how he oxygenated his system prior to attempting the feat). Can’t wait to see if his new resurgence into the popular culture will lead to another magic special.
