“Sure he may have walked through the Great Wall of China, wooed Claudia Schiffer, and used his superpowers to thwart would-be robbers, but those were mere parlor tricks,” writes Eonline‘s Josh Grossberg of magician David Copperfield‘s claim to have discovered the Fountain of Youth. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, Josh.

Copperfield told Reuters that he has found the spring of eternal youth–the very same font that Juan Ponce de León was said to be looking for when he came upon Florida. Only instead of the Sunshine State, said fountain is actually in the Exuma archipelago, the Bahamas. According to the illusionist, who is planning on having the waters scientifically-tested, “You can take dead leaves, they come in contact with the water, they become full of life again… Bugs or insects that are near death, come in contact with the water, they’ll fly away. It’s an amazing thing, very, very exciting.”

And potentially very lucrative. Copperfield scooped up one of the islands for a reported $65 million and plans to turn it into “a posh, private retreat that the ultra-rich can enjoy for up to $392,000 a week.” Taking money from the pockets of the ultra-rich? Now, that’s a trick we’d like to see!
