HAHA! Well, so far I haven't seen any planking but maybe I haven't been looking up far enough. :)

Those ARE cool 7's!

Yep, I'm with EG -- I haven't seen any planking, but I probably don't look up far enough either!! I do love those 7's! Hope you have a great week!

Planking - as defined by Urban Dictionary

An act of lying face down atop an object, landmark, animal or other person, then stiffening one's form so that one's arms are firmly held by one's side and toes are pointed; taking on the physical characteristics of a plank.

Planking is usually recorded and uploaded to social networking sites to gain kudos for the level of comedy, aesthetic or endangerment accomplished in execution.

It is said to have originated in Adelaide, South Australia.

This seems a lot like what kids used to do long ago, cramming into a tiny car to see how many would fit. Mostly it sounds like harmless fun but like anything it can be taken too far and accidents can happen. I would have likely missed this person in the act of planking. The interesting large numbers on the wall would have totally caught my attention instead.

I had to look closely to see the planker. I too was looking more at the typography.

Hi there - when I was a kid to be called "as thick as a plank" was to be called stupid. Now we have "planking" - I rest my case!

So what is owling?

"Owling refers to the act of sitting in a perched position while looking off into the distance as to mimic the posture of an owl."
