David Blaine has announced plans for his next "trick," as the 30-year old crackpot intends on suspending himself in a glass box over the River Thames in London for the sole purpose of milking gallons worth of media attention. The ìmagicianî will be stuck in this glass box for more than six weeks without food...or in a position where the cameras canít see the tubes that are pumping food into his body somehow. Blaineís last ìillusionî was when he stood on that really tall stick for a long time and then fell onto a pile of cardboard boxes...SPECTACULAR! This is the first time that David Blaine, a native New Yorker who began performing street magic in his early teens, will perform a stunt outside of the United States. I heard that Harry Houdini died after a man punched him in the stomach...David Blaine, can I punch YOU in the stomach?
