What do you make of this David Blaine guy who is hanging over London in a lucite box with no food, no bed and no privacy for 44 days. I don't see the point in it personally. I mean, he's got some amazing will power to do that, but apart from masochism there doesn't seem to be any reason. Must be the money, but I can't see who would pay you to do that.
