So David Blaine - remember him? He's the guy who thinks he's Jesus Christ and is exceptionally gifted at both magic and pre- and post-magic publicity - is coming back. His next wheeze will be called "Electrified: One Million Volts Always On". Any guesses as to what he'll be getting upto?

Time.com picks up the story: "A trailer for the stunt shows the 39-year-old endurance artist wearing a futuristic-looking bodysuit in between two conductors. Blaine’s last stunt was hanging upside down without a net high over New York’s Central Park for 60 hours in 2008. But the grand finale of the “Dive of Death” stunt didn’t go according to plan. His other stunts include holding his breath underwater for 17 minutes and 4 seconds, being buried alive for a week in a see-through coffin and being encased in a block of ice for 63 hours."
