I've looked for a somewhat exhaustive list on side show stunts and have yet to find one. I know it would be impossible to list them all as some people have probably created ones on their own.
Here is a list of ones I can think of off the top of my head:

Block Head
Sword Swallowing
Bed of Nails
Sword Ladder
Floss
Mouse Traps Etc
Fire Eating
Glass Walking
Glass Eating
Breaking cinder blocks on head, body etc

but you guys are the experts, what are some I've forgot? Or didn't even know about?
Thanks!

I'm working on writing about the very things you've recently posted about. But I'm slow. I'm an old man. So ... WOULD YOU PLEASE STOP THINKING FASTER THAN ME?

Here, clipped from my notes, is my list:

Blockhead
Glass Walking
Sword Swallowing
Fire Eating
Bed of Nails
Cinderblock Break (on chest, on head, on bed of nails)
Pincushion (various flavors, from stapling to darts)
Hand in trap
Blade Box: It Still Works
Soup Can Hand Smashing
Mousetrap on Tongue
Freak Exhibits (Museum and Live Freaks)
Mental Floss
Sword Ladder
Bug eating
Gavage
Human Slate
Firecrackers on Chest
Needle Thru Palm (no ... just no ... along with deep tissue piercing, suspension. Just my opinion.)
Flea Circus
Electric Chair (for real)

Sorry Ross! lol. I've just been working on my show and been trying to figure out what to add. So far I've got Fire eating, glass walking, Mental Floss(although I'm trying to work up to doing it for an audience again, without spitting everywhere), Block Head, Mouse Trap on hand and tongue. I want to do a bed of nails as soon as I get one made, although I don't really want to take my shirt off in front of an audience...trying to figure out an interesting costume that just exposes my back. Maybe I'll just do it in a tee shirt... and cinder block smashing. I've never done it but I think I could do it. Now I'll get people after me for not having a teacher..again... but so far I've taught myself everything. don't worry I wont do anything too stupid. Smile
