I think this is probably the best point. What Blaine is doing isn't something no one else never dared to try. The majority, if not all of his stunts have been done by others.

Vertigo would be the easiest to fake out of all of them. I just tend to think with Blaine being a magician at least some of them were tricks and not real. I mean think about it, if you could fake them and make everyone think you really did it, or go through that much discomfort, which would you rather do? No one would know the difference, and you and your friends would always get a good laugh out of it.

And the one where he fasted for like however many weeks had to be faked. I mean I know its humanly possible not to eat anything for that long, but just because its humanly possible doesn't mean its possible for every human you know?

But I don't see where it makes a big difference either way. I think either way is equally impressive, and just as cool.

The fasting one wouldn't be that hard. It was only like 44 days or something around then. I used to do that a couple of times a year (well for 40 days). So I'd see no reason to fake it.

The world record is only like forty something days if I'm not mistaken....
and to really be truely fasting that means the only thing going in your body is water, meaning no juice, soda, etc., meaning no vitamins or nutrients or calories.

It cleans out the body. I started doing it after I did studies on Buddhism. They end up making me feel better. Plus, I want to get used to it, for future stunts.
