David Blaine

Originally, I was going to avoid talking about David Blaine's Underwater Stunt, but seeing a report on it gave me a little fodder for thought. If he actually spends the full amount of time underwater, he might be able to give science some minor information on how the human body reacts to being submerged for an extended period of time.

In addition, he efforts to eat pretty much prove the scenes that Kurt Busiek wrote in the preview pages of Aquaman #42... Blaine is drinking liquid food in the same way King Shark and Arthur are drinking in the preview. Of course, Blaine isn't eating solid foods, as waste disposal is more of a problem when it involves solids.

I think they should add some goldfish to Blaine's bubble. That would make it far more interesting.
