Planking; A Symptom Of Boredom

Planking is apparently the thing to be doing if you're an Aussie.   The new Australian craze, Planking, involves simply lying face down, stiff (like a plank), in random public places, and being photographed.  

My god, I cannot imagine the boredom that allowed this to become a thing.   I would imagine a need for feeling relevant may be a good deal of the motivation, as  the pictures are posted online.   Planking has even claimed the life of a twenty year old man who fell to his death in attempts to achieve the perfect plank.
