Is it just me or is the world full of idiots?

At least it's not dangerous nor likely to get anyone killed. It sort of reminds me of the thing they teach you in first year sociology about abnormal behavior, like going into an elevator & facing the back wall instead of the door to see how people will react. It's really silly, but at least no one gets hurt. A kid just died here after celebrating his birthday "car-surfing". That is just depressing.

I actually thought that was pretty funny...it's more the look on the faces of the ones serving the cones and not so much what he's doing that I find so funny. Although I guess they do go hand in hand.

I'm not getting why this guy is wasting his money ruining a perfectly good ice cream and making himself look like an idiot. It's not a prank, it's not affecting anyone else. He's just making a mess, wasting the money and looking stupid.

I think my favourite Jackass prank was the golfers/airhorn one just because golfers are asking for it with their uptightness and nobody actually got hurt. Except maybe some golf clubs. I actually want to go do that myself. Ha.

I absolutely love pranks!! I loved Tom Green and some of the pranks pulled on Jackass (the rest is just gross and I tend to have strong stomach, so that's saying a lot coming from me).

But this is just lame.

It's sort of like how we use to play chinese fire drills in my youth group on a deserted country back roads. :/

I hate to say it but naked man better think again if he's planning on getting dates with that picture. LOL I think the women would be too busy laughing at him!

I think the article said he did it a couple of hours before the young man died, I'm not pulling it up again to check, that photo gave me the heebie jeebies! LOL I did see one of a guy in Perth who did a naked "plank" on a statue, the photo actually is a good photo, quite, ahh what's the word I'm looking for damn it, photographic? (unfortunately). I'll see if I can find it.

Regarding "planking":
"...Photos have emerged of Footy Show star Sam Newman "planking" on the railing of a 40-storey balcony, taken hours before a Queensland man fell to his death attempting a similar stunt..."

WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU DO THAT?! If some one already fucking DIED why would you do the same thing?! This is Darwinism at it's finest, ladies. :P

I've never even heard of planking let alone cone-ing. Both sound really freaking stupid though. It makes you wonder what the hell is wrong with these people.

I'm not really understanding why grabbing an ice cream cone by the ice cream would take off. It's kind of a one-time gag, no? Not really a way to make it more awesome.

This planking thing...what? So you lie down? OMG AWESOME. I'm going to go plank on the couch.

How do people come up with these things? I agree Kellie... why???? Guess some people will do anything for their 15 minutes of fame!

Haha! I have never heard of that but it is really lame and very funny! Probably shouldn't be funny but guys in particular will do anything for attention and planking camels is one way to do it, for sure! Just hope my brother doesn't catch wind of this newest idiotic craze...

Nope I heard about it but didn't give it much thought other than a fleeting Dickhead comment in my mind. He is starting to lose it I think, he always was a dickhead but is getting worse in his old age.

Had you not seen that one kellie? I was almost sick when I saw that one. I think it may have been on one of the morning shows I saw it..... a couple of days AFTER that guy died trying to do the same thing and fell.

God I was so hoping it wasn't an Aussie thing Jodi, I thought we were smarter than that. Apparently not........

Tara, i think planking was a very Aussie thing. Not sure it took off world wide. Probably because there were some deaths and some near misses (yes, more idiots).





en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planking_(fad)

Maybe that will help.....or maybe not, because it truly is stupid.....

I feel old. What is planking?
As well, this guy is just a bid 11 year old boy. Honestly, the world gives him (and all other attention seeking morons) all this attention and they think they did something worthy of recognition.
Idiot is a mild adjective to describe this guy.
Sure I could see doing it once to see the reaction, like standing in a store and looking up and pointing, people will start to look up, lots of people, but it's all for shits and giggles not recognition or monetary gain.
He's a class A idiot.

it is, but garenteed some knob will try to make it extream. We've had 1 maybe 2 deaths here from planking, imagine what combing planking and cone-ing could do.

Apologies for my spelling, I'm not the best speller at the best of times, and I'm pretty tired atm so it's even worse than usual.

No, it's not just you. I think I'll skip that craze just like I did planking. I'm too old for all this.
