    [quote][SIZE=2][b]Blaine Trying to Go 6 Weeks Without Food[/b][/SIZE]

    LONDON (AP) -- For his latest trick, magician David Blaine will try to last more than six weeks without food in a plastic box suspended high over central London.

    Starting Sept. 5, Blaine will live in a plastic box 7 feet long, 7 feet deep and 3 feet wide for 44 days without food or contact with the outside world, a representative said Thursday.

    The street magician-turned-endurance performer previously spent 35 hours standing atop a 100-foot-tall pole and three days encased in ice. Both of those stunts took place in New York City.

    Unlike the feats performed by his hero, Harry Houdini, this latest challenge for Blaine won't be to escape, but to survive. All he'll have in the box is a tube for water and a tube for urine.

    But he'll also have a good view of London. The box will be suspended 40 feet high from a crane next to the River Thames and near the historic Tower Bridge.

    The entire event will be televised and streamed live on the Web, but Blaine's feat won't be considered a world record attempt, a spokeswoman said.

    The 30-year-old said performing the stunt will give him a chance to search for his "truths."

    I wonder if Leonardo will be there to drink the urine.
