Re: Planking

In the Aussie news today - some guy died doing it on a 7th floor balcony. (He fell.)

A few of the Aussie talk show hosts have been doing it on TV.

Re: Planking

I am either getting old or this is really one of the dumbest things one can do. Read my lips: planking is for plonkers.

Re: Planking

It's a good way of seeing who all the clones around the world are when they start jumping on the bandwagon.

It's mainstream now so uncool...if it ever was that is.

It's where you do it, similar to extreme ironing.

The more outrageous the better.

It's a nice memory.

Most BJJ guys , for example, have this thing were they go around choking or arm locking statues and taking the pic.

EDIT: Upthehatters explained it better than me. :P

Re: Planking

god could you imagine planking in front of a swiss person. i reckon they would see the funny side.
i mean come on, i haven't met one miserable, unfriendly and stuck up swiss person yet that hasn't got a great sense of humour.
