So he 'made it'. I watched live as he came out of the box, secretly hoping to see some emotion from him. First thing he did as he came out of the box was make a sad, helpless crying noise, before breaking down. He was too weak to stand, walk or barely talk. He may well die. It was really sad and tough to watch.

I don't care if you hate him for what he did. I have a lot of respect for him, as he did what he wanted to do for himself, didn't give up, and I believe he did it for reasons which are very valid to himself even if a lot of people don't understand.

I can't help but feel compassionate to somebody who decides to destroy himself just to prove himself to himself.

I don't hate him, he's too charismatic.

he could do it privately, then I wouldn't hate him

When he wears a wolly hat, he looks like Craig David. thats more than enough reason to hate anyone.

I went there, it was pretty quiet when I went.

Did anyone see the bit where he pulled the heart out of his chest? I
thought that was pretty poor and what about that bit where he was
doing a card trick and them naked ladies were dancing? Before then I
always thought he had a certain amount of believability. No doubt he
did all his stunts for real though.

Thing is, that film was clearly made by an over-eager media studies student. She just stuck all the trashiest clips in there. Also, I doubt that Blaine is responsible for stuff like the naked ladies thing. It&#39;s always publicists and agents which organise junk like that.

Too bad he didn&#39;t freeze in that fucking ice trick

Yes. Godzilla, who famously comes from a block of ice...
