I was with him up to the sand then I thought ...... That's just gross!!!!

An interesting show. I wonder how much he takes. I'd give him a decent tip.

Thought the filming was rubbish, and the woman who was filming her comment summed things up (and did not give the guy enough credit). It's a guy eating some glass!

David Blaine did something similar at the Richmond Forum:

"Is there any point to which you would wish to draw my attention?"
"To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time."
"The dog did nothing in the night-time."
"That was the curious incident," remarked Sherlock Holmes.

Couldn't stand to listen to him ..... Volume down and skip ..... Yep he ate glass. Does exactly what it says on the tin.

Maybe I should listen to it ...... But is it worth investing the 6 minutes?

I enjoyed this interview and found Mr. Blaine to be charming, witty and an excellent raconteur.

Huh. I read on the Internet that you're supposed to eat bananas with glass.

The game is called roshambo. At least around here.
And if you'll indulge me, I have a joke that this puts me in mind of;

A big city lawyer went duck hunting. He shot and dropped a bird, but it fell into a farmer's field on the other side of a fence. As the lawyer climbed over the fence, an elderly farmer drove up on his tractor and asked the lawyer what he was doing. The lawyer responded, "I shot a duck and it fell into this field, and now I'm going to retrieve it." The old farmer replied. "This is my property, and your not coming over here." The indignant lawyer replied. "I'm one of the best trial lawyers around, and if you don't let me get that duck, I'll sue you and take everything that you own. The old farmer smiled and said, "Apparently, you don't know how we do things in these parts. We settle small disagreements like this, with the Three Kick Rule." The lawyer asked, "What is the Three Kick Rule?" The farmer replied, "Well, first I kick you three times and then you kick me three times, and so on, back and forth until someone gives up." The lawyer quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided that he could easily take the old codger. He agreed to abide by the local custom. The old farmer slowly gets down from the tractor and walked up to the city fella. His first kick planted the toe of his heavy work boot into the lawyer's groin, which dropped him to his knees. His second kick nearly ripped the nose off his face. The lawyer was flat on his belly, when the farmer's third kick to a kidney nearly causing him to give up, but didn't. The lawyer summoned every bit of his will and managed to get to his feet and said, "Okay, now it's my turn." The old farmer smiled and said, "Naw, I give up, You can keep the duck!"

The funny thing is, when I eat glass, I enjoy the texture, the popping, and the resultant glass "crumbs" to crunch on during the day. Tell me why when I get a grain of sand in my mouth I freak? Especially in a sandwich while eating lunch at the beach....

Banana? I assume that is someone who "assumes" that you need something to bind with the glass. Completely uneccesary, and dumb as well. Especially if you plan on eating the entire banana, then drink a 20 oz bottle of Sprite..... don't believe me? Try it and tell me what happens.

Errrggghhh banana! Not going to try it I hate bananas! I'll get the kids to try it.

I'm surprised they let him do it on the beach ..... A lot of places won't let you look at the beach with a glass in your hand let alone take one on to it. And in a year or two (thousand) the beach will be in danger of disappearing.

Yeah, I'm guessing the banana is to "bind up the glass and coat your stomach". After searching for a while on the subject I learned the Internet can be a very dangerous place for those with little or no common sense. On the other hand I can point to info like this with my kids and say "this is why you come to me before doing anything you researched online".

I'll do the banana and Sprite thing, and even video it, but you gotta do the heaping table spoon of cinnamon thing.

Well, you can't just eat a banana. It's got to be a peanut butter and banana sandwich. And drink a fifth of whisky. That's how you do it. Or you could just eat prunes and drink gatorade. It does the same thing. Does anyone else smell gas?

Bobby Reynolds is right. Prostitution and the sideshow...two things that have been ruined by amateurs.

Dave might think he is Burt Reynolds older brother.....

Along with the bananas and Sprite (vomit)
.............tablespoon of cinnamon (cough up everything)
.............Cacao challenge (try to eat an entire bar of 95%)
.............gallon of milk chug (vomit)
.............now try to stick your elbow in your ear.

1908, who are you (other than the year my forefathers came to America)? And I'm very interested to see what you plan on "publishing".

I'm not sure I've ever seen anyone present glass eating exactly like Blaine did in that clip. David Blaine you are a trailblazer.

I enjoy the uncomfortable feeling I get watching him. Like he really doesn't know what he's doing and he makes the illusion complete with excuses as to why it didn't go off as planned.

PS. I hear he trains for months to pull off these stunts.
