23/05/2011 22:48

Planking is a new hobby that is very popular in Australia. “Plank” is a long piece of wood. Planking is actually very simple to do. You have to only lie on your belly with your face down, put your arms next to your body and don’t move. Then ask somebody to take a picture of you and put it on the internet. The place should be unusual. People of different ages try this, sometimes successfully, sometimes not. You can see two videos. On the second video, a man tries to do planking on the bushes. It is not possible. The place is unplankable. It is not possible to do planking on it.
