    I can't think of anything more boring to be honest...

    How on earth does this kind of thing get popular anyway?

    To me, planking is just applicants trying out for the Darwin awards.

    Seriously, who would consider lying prone on the edge of a 5th or 7th storey anything as being harmless and a bit of fun?

    {And putting 'young' and 'commonsense' in the same sentence makes it an oxymoron!}

    Can you imaging the explanation that planker is giving at the pearly gates?... Yar, seriously dude, it was totally like, duh, fun, you know. How was I supposed to know that I could like, totally overbalance, and like, fall - you know? Totally wicked stunt though dude - how totally awesome would it have been if it had like, actually worked!

    Oi.

    Mastercard = Priceless.
    Planking = Brainless.

    .
    Harmless doesnt come in to the equation, that would be soooo boring. Fun is the adrenalin rush. I used to be a major risk taker with my life, addicted to extreme sports and honestly I would consider planking to be a totally non event type activity to die for. Absolutely pointless in fact.

    Just about everything we do has an element of danger. What I object to is when people try to sue someone else for their own misfortune. And the lawyers jump in boots and all.

    Young people have always done dangerous things, but today social media and television exposure spreads crazes so very quickly.

    When we were kids (there were four of us) we used to do unbelievable stuff. I find it hard to believe now. One of the worst (in terms of stupidity) I can remember is jumping off a bridge onto a dried out river. It must have been tidal at one stage because there were mounds of sand that we used to jump into.

    We grew up in the country and hardly ever wore shoes, we would disappear from the house in the morning and parents wouldn't see us again until evening.

Who didnt like to open ones motorbike up to full throttle when on a nice big open country road, despite the thought of the odd stray kangaroo' or taking a big jump on a horse. It is often more about the adrenalin rush than the potential consequence. I can understand it although I can thing of better ways to get an adrenalin rush than planking.
    I dont at all think its boring if its safe, I crack up at every safe planking attempt i see, on the lounge, coffee table, bed end its all funny, the people that go to extremes get the shock factor not the laughs, which is what planking is suppose to receive.

    Maybe I am getting old but I think it is incredibly boring - a person lying stretched out face down on a bed or a table is funny? - apart from the dog in the first post that was funny.

    No actually even was I was young I would have found it boring, to busy doing other stuff to care about planking.
