Planking is the new craze that's gone viral on sites like Twitter, which refer to the people lying down on your stomach completely flat (like a plank of wood) on an odd surface and then have their picture taken. Planking seems to be a new odd fad brought upon us by Australians. Many athletes and actors/actresses are now being seen in planking photos.

Just to note, the original "Planking" definition has been that of flooring (planks of a boat) or as part of a boat.

Rosario Dawson Shows Off Her New Planking Hobby:


From the Wikipedia page on “slave ship”:Often the ships, also known as Guineamen, transported hundreds of slaves, who were chained tightly to plank beds. For example, the slave ship Henrietta Marie carried about 200 slaves on the long Middle Passage. They were confined to cargo holds with each slave chained with little room to move.

Slaves were forced to lay face down with their arms by their side and their wrist chained to their waist. Some were even stacked on top of each other with no room to move. Keep in mind there were not any restrooms and they were exposed to bodily fluids, etc. Not many of the slaves survived, many dying from dehydration and disease.
