I just wasted 2 hours of my time watching David Blaine

anyways, its well known that he was hanging upside down in central park, nyc since this past weekend, about over 60 hours or so and tonight was the finale. they were saying how the human body is not supposed to hang upside down for a prolonged period of time and all that blood rushing to the brain can cause lots of pressure to the head and eyes, which can cause blindness, and at the same time can make the heart work harder to try to pump blood to the legs. so yea, dangerous stuff, you can die from it, and shit, blah blah blah. they coined the show "DIVE OF DEATH". so i was thinking they were gonna release the rope while he was upside down and dive head first to the ground from 44 feet up......crazy shit.......but not the case. instead, they brought him over to a cherry picker, flipped him right side up, he looked fine, then he jumps, but doesn't land on the ground 'cause he was attached to a cord, then the cord supposedly magically pulled him up and out of sight like he disappeared into the dark sky..........STUPID. made me waste 2 hours for that. what's crazy was that there was an awkward silence when he didn't land on the ground and the cord was revealed, then a bunch of awwwss and hisses when he was just hanging there after the jump. i have this feeling like they fucked it up or something. anyways, the bullet catch was cool and the usual street magic segments were amazing. here's a few david blaine spoof vids that i found after watching the show. enjoy!
