Haha cool post. I've seen the one with the falling head before. The one where he walks on water might work by building a small, strong wooden walkway submerged enough to where it's not visible maybe? Or possibly just a trick of the camera?

Wow, what a totally convincing and not at all completely faked-looking video. My complements in particular to the cameraman for having the foresight to realize the importance of dramatically cutting away repeatedly to show the host's reactions instead of the amazing never before recorded event they came there specifically to see. I would've foolishly kept the camera focused on every second of the action being sure to show it from all angles without pause as it happened, thereby spoiling this truly once in a lifetime opportunity.

Seeder - That's insane! I rewatched it and I can see how it could all be a work, but very cool nonetheless.

:tu:   Yeh Criss Angel is brilliant, and Dynamo, do a youtube search on them, it'll keep you entertained for ages!!  Yes that last trick I reckon was a dwarf and obviously one of those half people, who are more common that you think, thats why Criss was holding the holder the half woman was in, under the skirt when they pulled her off

If you rewatch, the woman used for the trick walked weird, sat weird, and laid back really odd, the 2 girls helping were stooges of course...you can hear a wooden sound when Criss tapped her waist

edit: typos

Magician Dan White meets up with a Buddhist monk, in Nepal, who has the power of levitation. Do you believe this or not???
Watch: Buddhist Monk Levitation – Full Video
When I was a child, I heard many stories about some ancient people levitating into the air in broad day light. And I know many Buddhist monks have supernormal abitly and this is one of them.

Even the "liberal-know-nothings" from the US Public Broadcasting Service debunked this years ago with demonstrations from the streets of India. A one-legged prop and thin "butt support" are used, not seen in the candlelit darkness and billowy obfuscation of the monk's clothing and stick. Of course Magician Dan's complicity was required, also. Such a clip as this would only enhance his (relatively under-known) magician's reputation. Who is he? I'm an oldster, familiar only with Kreskin, Randi, Geller and 'Mandrake.'

The real miracle is not to raise oneself while living, but rather after one isn't. Some are said to have done this, but the reports have been questioned and, in some cases, dismissed. Others retain credibility, noting that such a rising is not impossible, given current understandings of quantum physics, inter-dimensionality and the not-yet nature of the future.

No not camera trickery, most probable has to be a walkway....here it is again by Criss




Now the public assume, that he does this in FRONT of the general public, but its paid stooges of course

except where he does card tricks and general magician stuff, thats 'out on the streets for real', as it needs no props

I mean, dontcha think if you were in that pool, you wouldn't be slapping the water behind him to feel for a platform? But no-one does, do they?

I believe some masters probably can do it just like other things. A few have even demonstrated to researchers at various times...  control of body manipulation and function beyond human norm. I highly doubt any you tube or public type magicians since the real masters wouldn't show off to public without a very good unselfish reason.
