We hope David Blaine empties out his pockets before he’s hung upside-down—then again, loose change is the least of his problems. For 60 hours, the magician/devil/alien will be suspended five stories in the air by a wire—with no net—above Wollman Rink in Central Park. The only thing keeping Blaine’s cute little head from hitting the ground is electromagnetic boots. WTF?! He’s doing the whole stunt, ominously titled “Dive of Death,” without food and will only be pulling himself up to drink liquids and restore circulation. So how does he pee? They never show that stuff on TV, so watch him do it live.
