Before school let out I finished my work and got an idea for a stunt.The magician sky dives through a ring of fire ,then pulls his parachute after he passes through then runs like heck when he hits the ground to avoid being hit by the ring.The hoop would have to be large but it could still be difficult to control your way through the ring with out being lit on fire,I've been having nightmares about falling through a ring of fire.I might email Criss or Blaine with the concept or I might have to do it when I grow up and get insurence just to get the nightmares to stop.Again this is just a concept or a nightmare! :lol: :cry:

for a ring of fire that large I would assume that as soon as you pulled your shute then shortly after the ring would pass through you again and fall before you did. I figure this because it is most likely a lot heavier than you and will reach a faster speed than you and as a result hit the ground before you. Also this may be even further dangerous if the ring of fire passes through your area after you have pulled your shute and may burn your shute to bits and cause you to start a freefall. Sorry brother but I just don't see it happening.

I dunno I think the only way that would really be that cool is if the magicain were to do a vanishing act, like the ring of fire catchs the parchute and everyone thinks the magicain is gonna fall to his death, but reaveals hes just somewhere hanging out with the audiecne or somthing like that.

I have a better idea. Magicians should stop doing stunts and do some magic.

Actually, I'd have to disagree with that. I think stunts are good as long as there is enough magic in the special also. Like Drowned Alive, that would have been a much better special if there was some more magic. But I wouldn't mind if Blaine did another stunt, because I can be sure it was real. On the other hand, if Angel did a stunt, I wouldn't be excited, because as we all know, it would be fake.

Stunts are ok, as long as there is sufficient magic also.

That is the biggest problem however, the magic element has become less and less with each stunt that Blaine has performed. 2-1/2 hours of showing Blaine floating around in a bubble, and 20 minutes of magic. To me that is not magic by any means, it is boredom.

There are many reasons why "Street Magic" is considered to be the best magic TV special in a long time, one of them being the quality of the magic, and the fact that is was ALL magic. No stunt crap as a means of wasting time.
