Science of Holding Your Breath: David Blaine

In October, illusionist David Blaine gave a talk for TEDMed about his training and experience of breaking the world record for a human holding his breath.  The record now stands at 17 minutes, 4 seconds. The information in this video is nothing short of amazing.  Take the time to watch this one, and share your thoughts or something you learned in the comments.

Standard DTTAH (Don’t Try This At Home) rules apply!

    Wow! I am amazed he can hold his breath that long. The longest I ever did was a little over two minutes. I wonder if anyone will ever beat his record? 🙂
