Im sure glad you Aussies get to claim this one... "the stupid" has to be spread evenly across the globe because if its concentrated in one nation it could be catastrophic. Here in America we have enough insanity at the moment... thanks for taking a little.

Dont blame this planking on Australians ,blame Europe ,we just came up with a better name.
Although it really looks like a Monty Python sketch.
"It all started actually in 2007 overseas, in Europe, and it was originally called the laying down game," he said.

Now its on the news because someone fell off a balcony and died whilst trying to be a planker.
Now i know about it and now it gains notoriety

the lot of them are darwin award candidates


i know they have nothing to do with each other, but i hear the term planking and cant help but think of that old movie "surf ninjas" and how those kids used to "motosurf" or whatever they called it. i easily see this as being a silly ancestor of sorts.

Ha ha - it's like slow motion parkour!

Truth is we've been doing this for years in the UK, usually on the way home from the pub.

dont say we never help you yanks out.

i guess after sending a man to the moon (debatable but another day), sequencing the human genome, peering into the infinity of space, breaking down the mysteries of reality and the fundamental building blocks of matter and energy. Isnt Planking the next OBVIOUS obstacle humanity needs to overcome. I mean can you imagine the ultimate plank?

We really are a doomed species...no really.
