When was the last time a magician vanished something?
When was the last time a magician held his breath for 16 minutes and 32 seconds?
ps: not trying to be a fanboy either, so so you know
Holding your breath and all those other non-magic related things Blaine does is just that, non-magic related. It absolutely sh*ts me when people use Blaine's stunts as an argument over who is a better magician.
