Maybe you have heard of magician/nutter David Blaine.  The same guy who locked himself in a box of ice for a week decided to suspend himself in a box without food located along the river Thames and the Tower Bridge.  If New Yorkers were curious when he was in the ice, Londoners have been anything but ambivalent when it comes to Mr. Blaine.  Some openly questioned his sanity (ok, even his handlers were thinking he lost lucidity every once in a while but they attributed that to a lack of food).  Some people hated him and cooked food underneath and heckled him.  Others were huge fans and shouted "We love you, David!" and posted banners professing their support.  Some even suggested it was an illusion, but our visit sort of suggested that he was actually in the box.  He's still weird though.
