    Default Planking?

    Really?
    So the game is, you lie facedown somewhere with your hands by your sides, and someone else takes a picture of you. Preferably in a weird spot.

    So, the human race is now entertained by people lying down. AND you can become popular by doing this.

    How new a thing is this "planking"? This is the second planking thread I've read, the other one on my FB. It boggles the mind how someone would come up with something like this and even more boggling how it becomes popular.

    These fads, crazes, internet memes, etc, are actually quite interesting. The fact that I can't understand why people would do something like this boggles me. Almost makes me want to study psychology or something like that to understand these people.

    I'm sure Aceman will have a theory on this.

    Seriously though, If I knew someone that did that kind of stuff, I'd just end the friendship!

    I thought the point of planking was to do it in places where there's some degree of difficulty involved, i.e., not just laying face-down on a carpeted floor or in the grass.

    I should be the most popular guy on the webz. I'm always getting drunk and passing out in strange places. By definition, that's planking.

    Idiots!

    An Australian man has plunged to his death after taking part in a new internet craze known as 'planking'.
    Acton Beale, 20, fell from the balcony of a block of flats in Brisbane, Queensland, after he tried to 'plank' on some railings.
    This is thought to be the first time someone has actually died from the growing craze in which people lie face down in an unusual place before taking pictures and uploading them onto the internet.
    Newman was snapped planking on the balcony of his 40th-floor apartment in Port Melbourne, hours before a Queensland man fell to his death attempting a similar stunt. Acton Beale, 20, fell to his death after falling from a seventh-floor railing in Brisbane on Sunday morning.
    Hours earlier Newman posed in a similar fashion from the balcony of his high-rise apartment in Port Melbourne, the Herald Sun reports.
    Sam Newman
    This idiot is one of our local ex sportsman/ TV personality/wanker breed.

    Would it be bad form if when I encounter a "Planker" to actually plank right there on top of them?
