    Heard of planking before? If you like to keep your sanity, I suggest you skip this post.

    �Planking involves someone lying flat on their stomach with their arms against their bodies in unusual and sometimes dangerous situations, with photographs of their exploits shared through social media sites.�

    You can read the full story -

    I would also suggest you read the comments, they�re rather entertaining.

    Having said that, I would also like to hear yours�that�s if you have anything to say because honestly � I have no comments.

      just read about it in news today.  Seems they don't care that they could end up lying flat on back stiff as a plank in a coffin

      I think it is possible he had too much to drink as we was on his way home from a night out.
      I wrote a hub on it.
      It's such a shame someone died because it looks like one of those crazes that is sooo stupid, it is fun!

    Facebook makes for stupidity? Nope.

    Plenty of people already operate their life, completely based on being stupid, which is stupidity in motion.

    It's unfortunate that stupidity in motion also includes breeding. hmm

    In answer to the title of this thread...I'm pretty sure Facebook doesn't make anyone stupid.  They are probably this way all on their own. 

    Here's another good article about it...
