David Blaine catches up on current events while upside down on Tuesday.

David Blaine catches up on current events while upside down on Tuesday.

 

 

David Blaine‘s upside-down stunt doesn’t end until Wednesday night, but some folks are already saying his achievement should be marked with an asterisk.

The magician takes 10-minute breaks every hour – standing on his own two feet to drink water, urinate, have his vitals checked by a doctor and keep his blood circulating.

That didn’t sit well with some of the 8,000 gawkers who came by Central Park‘s Wollman Rink to see Blaine hang from a bar in the air by gravity boots.

Some observers are not impressed with the fact that Blaine stands on his own feet for 10 minutes every hour to drink water, urinate and have his vitals checked. (writer's note: but I am impressed to see him readingthe news upside down ROFL...idiot)

 

 

“It’s cheating,” said Chris Pirri, 24, ofCommack, L.I. “I’ve been here 10 minutes and already saw him take a break.”

Blaine dismissed the detractors.

“I’m not going to pee all over myself to satisfy those people,” he said as he dangled like a bat Tuesday night. “It’s pretty hard-core, worse than I thought.”

 

In a pre-stunt interview, Blaine had said he would use a catheter to urinate and would restore blood flow with upside-down situps and by moving his legs.

But Blaine’s spokesman Pat Smith said he “found he couldn’t drink upside down and relieve himself upside down” – so he hops onto a cherry-picker platform every hour.

Blaine’s latest endurance test concludes with an ABC special from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Wednesday night.
