Water On The Brain

David Blaine's latest stunt (spending a week living in an 8-foot acrylic sphere filled with water) has begun... Shirtless (as usual) with an oxygen tube in his mouth, he slid into his snow globe-like "human aquarium" Monday at Lincoln Center. In a week, he will remove the device and attempt to hold his breath underwater longer than the record of 8 minutes, 58 seconds.
