The lying down craze

I know it is only going to be a matter of time before this Lying Down craze hits Malaysia as well. The world is already crazy enough with all sorts of people wanting to show off their individualism or herd instinct by attempting all sorts of weird acts. Add this Lying Down to the list!

They'll lie rigidly face-down on almost everywhere - on rooftops, postboxes, luggage racks and even in the engine of a jumbo jet. It's the latest and perhaps the most bizarre Internet phenomenon yet to sweep the globe.

No location is out of bounds. There are people lying down on roofs, in the middle of the road, in front of tanks, across bars in pubs and on table football games. There are only two aims to the challenge: that the lying down should be as public as possible and that as many people as possible should be involved. They must have their palms flat against their sides with the tips of their toes touching the ground.

There's even a Facebook group for Lying Down! Go search for it and see for yourself the thousands of preposterous poses, posts and positions.
