I think that we should publicly encourage this - with luck the darwin affect will kick in and the world will be a better place.

Just a shame the emergency services have to get called out more, but still - oh I once heard about a planker who planked(?) on a moving Fire engine.......

I plank
You plank
He/She/It planks
They are plankers
And then there are the plankton.....

But wait... why is this in the sports-fitness thread?

Re: Planking

I do it every night for 6-7 hours and always have done, so what is all the fuss about?

Re: Planking

Amazing, this new "Planking" craze has really taken off here in Basel.

The old pensioner next door has been lying face down in the middle of his patio for three days solid now. Stiff as a board.
