Blaine's Dive of Death, What Went Wrong?

By now most of you have heard about the lameness that was David Blaine's Dive of Death, though if you haven't it's totally worth watching the video below. He jumps around 1:50 and the crowd responds with a LOT of booing, during which he just sort of awkwardly hangs in mid air.

Apparently Blaine was originally going to jump and catch onto balloons in mid air and then float away on them, or so he says in a hasty street interview on TMZ. He claims that the broadcast delay caused by Bush's speech and subsequent weather problems made the stunt impossible as it was planned. It sounds like complete BS, except that I took a picture of the aforementioned balloons and harness and blogged about them yesterday calling them "so much cooler than anything Blaine is up to." 

Also, how the hell did this end up being the David Blaine blog?
