thursday : rant day

I'm curious how many people watched the david blaine stunt last night?
If you've been living under a rock for the past few days "illusianist" david blaine was hanging upside down for 60 hours in prepartion for the stunt loving called "the dive of death."
First let's clarify the 60 hours of hanging. As reported on some other sites, he was not upside down for 60 hours straight. Every few hours he was lowered to take a drink an get checked out by his doctor.
Second the 2 hour show was filled more with various tricks and pranks than any real content. Oh and I can't forget he had a bullet shot into his mouth that land in a steel cup he was gnawing on.

But finally the actual stunt. He was turned right side up, jumped off a ledge and with his feet barely touching the platform was pulled back up by cables. After bouncing around awhile he apparently jumped on some baloons and flew off into the night.

The gf and I looked at each other and asked "was that it?"
The crowd was disappointed too as they loudly booed. Maybe we just didn't "get it."
