BBC NEWS | Entertainment | TV and Radio | Charge over Blaine box incident

BBC NEWS - Blaine box incident

This whole David Blaine thing has gone on for long enough. People throw golfballs and food at him, use laser pointers to point him (which he thought was from rifles), even as far as sending a hamburger up using a remote controlled helicopter. Some girl even flashed him, or stripped naked underneath his cage. Why don't people just leave him alone? Better yet, the media should stop hyping it up so much. If he wants to stay in that plastic box, suspended over London's Tower Bridge, then so be it. Why do we care - or better yet, why SHOULD we care?

It's a personal challenge for him, and he feels that it will be a rewarding experience. Good for him. I have nothing against him, and I admire the fact that he is doing what he feels is right for him. Now let us all just carry-on with the rest of our lives.. there are much more important things to do in life than to stare at a man inside a plastic box.
