Magician David Blaine is one of the biggest con artists in America. Every so often he comes up with a daring publicity stunt and suckers the media into publicizing it.

I never pay any attention to his stunts because they are always medically impossible. His stunts are pulled off using smoke and mirrors trickery. They're not even good stunts.

You would think by now the media would know better?

David Blaine is not really hanging upside down for 60 hours, according to FOXNews.com's eyewitness who photographed the magician standing right-side up Tuesday.

The revelation would seem to deflate Blaine's latest stunt, but a representative for the 35-year-old magician said he never intended to stay upside down for 60 consecutive hours.

"About once an hour he has to come down for a medical check, to stretch, and to relieve himself, because even David Blaine can't do that upside down," said Patrick Smith, an executive vice president at Rubenstein Associates. "He has said all along that there will be times when he must get his head above his heart."

Smith continued, "The doctors told him if he doesn't do that, he will die."

So what was the point of all this then? Or am I just missing the point?

    Much to do about nothing. Just someone with way too much time on his hands and for those with too little time(to not reseach or get online)they believe this BS.

    Wow I'm actually agreeing with Sandra on this one....its gonna be a good day today, LOL.

    But really, what is the valid point of him acting like he's gonna hang upside down for 60 hours if he has to come down for medical checks? I could go outside and hang off my roof for 10 hours...and all I would get is the police coming to my house and an evaluation at the psych ward on the 5th floor.

    David Blaine also didn't stay in that fishbowl all day. I would walk by there in the morning on the way to work and he wouldn't be in there. But he would be there in the afternoon and night during the high traffic times

    Auntie you said it best! Just a bunch of shinnanigans with this clown! Yeah he would die, the possibilities of someone hanging upside down for 60 hrs. straight is 0%.

    DAVID BLAINE please sit yo' azz down somewhere and fill out a job application to keep yourself busy!

    Anyone who thought he could actually hang upside down without ever standing up is a fool. Everyone should know you can't be upside down for too long without dying. I'm suprised that he has made it for hour intervals...

    I've seen some of his other tricks before and they were pretty good to me. This one, I wouldn't have counted on being fully done.
