Abra Cadabra

Have you ever caught any of David Blaine's specials on tv? He does incredible tricks that consistently blow peoples minds. I get the feeling you either love him or you hate him. I think he's great and always amazes me with his talent.

Sounds like he's up to a new trick:

"David Blaine intends to sleep with the fishes - but only for a week, and in full public view. The 33-year-old magician will perform his latest stunt by living underwater for seven days and nights in a human aquarium in front of New York's Lincoln Center.
He will conclude by attempting to hold his breath underwater longer than the record of eight minutes, 58 seconds.
The finale of his latest stunt will air live in a two-hour ABC special on May 8 (8 p.m. EDT).
The human aquarium in which Blaine will float is a specially built 2.5-metre acrylic sphere. He will receive liquid nutrition through a tube and the water will be kept at a balanced temperature to help keep his core temperature close to 37 degrees C. Passersby will be able to touch the aquarium, take pictures with Blaine and communicate with him. He will enter the sphere on May 1.
To prepare for the challenge, Blaine trained with U.S. Navy Seals and a world class free-diving team. An inside look at his training will be shown on the ABC special, which is titled, David Blaine: Drowned Alive

I guess sawing a woman in half can get kind of old.
