David Blaine Stunt

OK, I guess it's magician week at Control Geek (I wrote about Criss Angel yesterday).  David Blaine is hanging upside down over Wollman Rink in Central Park through Wednesday night, and since I'm leading a group of skeptics to see his finale, I thought I'd stop by and check things out tonight.  It's a pretty cool setup (click for larger image):

He's actually hanging on a four-point winch system and is able to "fly" around the crowd (they were recording a promo when I was there):

The winches are from Fisher Technical (I've known Scott Fisher for about 10 years and stopped by his shop in Vegas this past summer, so I recognized his handiwork even with the stunt company's logo on the winches):
