Planking, increasingly popular in Australia, involves people lying flat on their stomachs in various and sometimes dangerous settings and then posting photographs on the Internet.
"Australian police say a man who plunged seven floors to his death from an apartment balcony was participating in the Internet craze of 'planking.'...Queensland state police Deputy Commissioner Ross Barnett told reporters that the dead man, aged in his 20s, fell from a balcony railing while a friend photographed him before dawn on Sunday in Brisbane city." - Washington Post, May 15, 2011.
