Blaine stunt is out of this world
David Blaine, the controversial illusionist who is currently
suspended above the Thames in London, is planning to be marooned
on the Moon. Blaine will spend three months on the desolate

fear that the magician’s fabled powers of concentration
may not be enough to save him this time. Health experts from
the Walter Matthau Institute for Serious Study, in Aberystwyth
Wales, explained: ‘It’s impossible to survive in
an atmosphere-free environment, just ask anyone who’s
ever visited Essex. Under the intense physical and emotional
pressures that would be placed on Blaine, he would for last
hardly any time at all, let alone three months.’
Liblander, a friend of David Blaine, claimed that NASA is planning
to sponsor the trip to the Moon, and claimed that a space agency
source told him that the project could prove mutually beneficial:
‘NASA’s been looking for a route back to the Moon,
in order to reinvigorate interest in the space programme.’
News is said to be in negotiations to show the feat live, immediately
after Fox and Friends.
In 1998 British magician Paul Daniels survived in a desert hut
for three weeks on food and water alone.
Environmentalist campaigners have criticised Blaine for his
latest stunt, claiming that there are enough starving people
in the world, and the magician is making a mockery out of people’s
suffering. They also are angry with the Moon proposal, as there
are enough people living without oxygen and Blaine is making
a mockery out of their situation.
