Blog2003 ≫ Independent testing of David Blaine

Haven't got a lot of time for David Blaine, but I'd like to find out it's some sort of fiddle, so I bought The Independent on Sunday for their "is David Blaine cheating?" headline... the article (by Andrew Johnson) concludes he's probably not, because they'd arranged for his urine to be tested by the country's leading nutritional experts, who found not enough salt, and high levels of ketones, so he is actually starving.

Then I read the News of the World who had the same story, (this time by Primrose Skelton), who used the same testing labs, and even the same hilarious "take the piss out of David Blaine" headline.


Nice weekend, much drinking in the new and improved Kent Armsi1 and Earl Grey2.
