He will do it live on Oprah underwater again. Sounds interesting.

Doesn't doing drugs, standing up for however long without sleeping, standing in ice without sleeping for however long, not eating for forever, not sleeping in some spinning rings, and all the other stuff Blaine has done damage your brain?

lol I think that question is a little late when it comes to Blaine.....

The stunt stuff he does is certainly dangerous even though people make fun of it as if its not...

He hasn't done the standing up without sleeping thing yet, that's the next stunt. You got any proof that he did drugs? It doesn't seem fair to the man that you just threw that in there and said he did it which would cause brain damage.

Blaine is one of my favorite magicians.... but its known he used to do drugs. He didn't show up for some performance at some magic thing once so the second guy had to fill in, but Blaine did get there like 15 minutes before it was over stoned out of his mind from what I heard. I don't know if its true though.

Just a thought...if Banacheck could convince scientists that he couldben metal with his mind...maybe Blaine can convince Guiness and Oprah that he can hold his breath for 17 min and 4.4 seconds!

I would me more impressed if he could pull this off...would make him more of a magician.

Well I think his next stunt is idiotic it's like he really is trying to kill himself because after 30 minutes of being upsidedown you're dead I know that for a fact because my grandpa was a fighter pilot in one of the wars (I don't remember which one) and he said to me before he died that if you're upsidedown for 30 minutes all the blood in your head will pretty much just overload your brain and just kill your brain.
