New breath-holding record

If you plan on one day setting a new breath holding record, don't hold your breath. When David Blaine isn't magically sending people back into dinosaur times, he's holding his. He recently set the new breath holding record:

David Blaine set a new world record Wednesday for breath-holding, 17 minutes and 4 seconds.

Now wait just a sec...

Before he entered the sphere, Blaine inhaled pure oxygen through a mask to saturate his blood with oxygen and flush out carbon dioxide.

Hmmmm... I consider that to be cheating! The Guiness Book O' Records people allow it, though.
