Morons In Glass Boxes

Illusionist David Blaine-- the "illusion", I suppose, is in the idea he is in any way relevant to humanity-- has boxed himself into a seven-by-seven-by-three glass case in London. He'll stay there for 44 days. There has been a great deal of jumping up and down over this, and people have been gathering 'round to watch him sit on his overhyped ass, a colossal loser trapped in self-created amber.

Am I the only one who finds this incredibly lame? Does this require any kind of skill whatsoever? Am I supposed to hail this as (swelling of Olympic Hymn) A TRIUMPH OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT? Hell, I lived in a room that size in the freshman dorm at The Womb for a year, and CNN never did a story on it.
