Speaking of idiots I just saw a guy on a sports bike pass in front of my house going probably around 120mph with a police car chasing after him, I'm waiting for a big bang.
Who needs cable!
And you didn't come out and wave at me?
I'll circle back around.

I don't see the problem with it. Parents should be happy the latest craze doesn't cost them anything. And I think this one is way more safe then 90% of the physical games and sports kids play today. Maybe this will help our overweight couch potato kids to (get out and play). It just seams harmless IMO.

I agree, harmless and free. Pretty good combo.

But I'm not sure it helps with the overweight thing. Laying very still for a long time?

Have to have great abs to hold legs that straight.

I agree harmless and funny. I would stop and look if I saw it. Better than drugs.

My parents were right into the Woodstock scene and I turned out alright, plus they take great care of my grandparents.

Did they pose as planks in Woodstock? I don't thinks so, they knew how to have fun and so did I, I don't look for ways to make my self look stupid in the middle of the road, some people are just detached from reality, that's when you become a piece of wood, like pinocchio lol

Haha! I definitely see your point, I just think things somehow even out in the end.

People trying such stupid stunts deserve to die. My opinion.

Human beings in general seem to have nothing truly worthwhile in their lives.
Someone very close to me (you'll never guess who...) tells me I'm being a little nihilistic and depressing with the above post. Upon reading it again, this unnamed source is right. I apologize for the extreme nature of the remarks. I don't retract them, but I admit I could have been a bit less callous.

People who post "toilet pics" think "planking" is weird.
I don't have an opinion on either, I'm just saying'.......

I feel like planking right now. I'll plank in my bed (I'm so tired).
