Don't Hold Your Breath: Warning: do NOT try this at home.

Via People: David Blaine Holds His Breath
In this highly personal talk from TEDMED, magician and stuntman David Blaine describes what it took to hold his breath underwater for 17 minutes -- a world record (only two minutes shorter than this entire talk!) -- and what his often death-defying work means to him.

Warning: do NOT try this at home.

When he gave his talk, David's vulnerability affected all of us profoundly. He reminded us of the untapped possibilities we all have in us -- if we get past the fear of losing ourselves in the process.

Magician David Blaine believes anything is possible. And no matter what you think of his history of "crazy" stunts, believing that anything is possible isn’t a bad way to live your life.

Here, David tells the fascinating and entertaining story about the training for his 2008 breath-holding stunt, which ended up being “the most amazing journey of [his] life.”
