I fucking hate David Blaine. Guy thinks he’s some more worldly deep introspective type of guy. Bro you’re a fucking magician. You perform tricks and are here to entertain idiots walking around New York City. Don’t even understand how the fuck he’s still around. Like not like he does any dazzling tricks that makes me contemplate whether or not he has some paranormal ability. Half the time it’s just shit where he doesn’t have to move for a few hours. I guess thats the magic am I right? Not the fact that he’s doing anything special, but the illusion that he does something vastly profound and unbelievable just because of the height he’s doing it from. Sitting on a platform 100 feet in the air, sleeping in a box under a tank of water. It’s all just not moving but as long as there’s some element of risk it’s like he made an elephant fly and vanish in mid air.
Well add this to his list of things he does that are neat at first but with some thought, aren’t that impressive at all. Shooting into a guard thingy? I get it’s risking life or death but i doubt he was firing a .308 here. I’m pretty sure it was probably a .22lr hollow point. Fragments on impact and doesn’t penetrate much. Dick Cheney could walk that off. Next, that gun is clamped the fuck down. Movement to the left or right could’ve fucked up his face for sure, but not like its gonna fly up and hit him dead ass in the brain. Rig it up to have a hair pin trigger then there’s not much wiggle from him in case it fucks up. It’s dumb to do yea, but I could recreate that same trick and pull it off in like 5 tries. Maybe to these wussy Brits who’ve never held a gun before think he’s gonna some how miraculously survive having a 1 oz lead slug exploding his brain, but its more equivalent to catching a fast but tiny pebble in the same exact spot it will always hit. It’s dumb and I wish it was a .50 BMG instead.
