    Okay, thanks. I heard a lot of people at my school discussing the latest planking accidents around Australia (been a lot of them) and was a bit embarrassed to ask what it actually was because everyone seemed to know. [​IMG]

    I just found out about it recently when I read about someone dieing falling off a balcony.

    The reason you might be hearing about it lately, is that the guy was trying to lay on the balcony railing- 7th floor balcony. And it was in Brisbane, if I remember correctly.

    Oh for crikey's sake! What will people do next to harm themselves in the name of idle entertainment? Have they nothing better to do?

    [​IMG] Yeah, people have problems these days - can't they go out and do something legitimate to let steam off? [​IMG]

    Imp - yes, if I remember correctly, it was in Brisbane. People were talking all about that one - planking actually appears to be pretty popular at our school. I, personally, would never engage in such ridiculous behaviour [​IMG]
