Unless you've been living under a rock, you already know that "endurance artist", David Blaine has announced his newest and most dangerous stunt.

Starting September 22nd he will be suspended 50 feet above Central Park's Wollman Skating Rink, without a net, for 60 straight hours.

But don't worry. He will be using magnetic boots so there is absolutely zero chance of him falling. And he'll be above a skating rink so it will be really hard to throw shit at him from the slippery ice below.

The real danger will be taking place inside Blaine's body where the rush of blood to his head could cause him to go blind and/or have a brain hemorrhage. He also faces the very real threat of pissing in his own face which could contribute to the blindness thing.

Blaine's past stunts include being buried underground and being encased in a block of ice. He holds the world record for holding one's breath and has taken the world's longest shower.

In addition to his death defying stunts, he is an accomplished magician and bullshit artist, most famous for his failed attempt to make Dick Cheney appear likable.
