I don’t care how you feel about magician David Blaine. Watch the TED video after the jump where he tells the story about his journey to break the breath holding world record. It’s fascinating and he’s actually a good storyteller. But be warned, you’ll probably spend the next 20 minutes watching the video and gaining respect for David Blaine. I did.
