    Find an odd place and lie face down... Is this the most pointless internet craze yet?

    They lie rigidly face-down 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.

    Several Facebook groups set up in honour of 'the Lying Down Game' display thousands of photographs of people lying face-down in progressively odder locations.





    ..................





    that is fuckin ridiculous, us humans disgrace ourselves on a daily basis dont we.. altho i am thinking of taking a photo of me laying down on the ferry to work .


    its as bad as the ' pat the wet' crew that used to be a 'dont stay in .com ' group, about 500 - 600 of them, tey used to go to raves, pour water on the floor or beer or anything, take their shoes off and stomp in the puddles in their socks coz it felt ' cool ' soaking wet socks looking like a twat.. its true they used to all love being ' random' the more 'zany' , 'random' , and 'out there' you were , the bigger your rep ... g-heeeeey

    this sort of thing sums up both human behavior and our current society to a tee, its the "everyone wants to be involved" concept hand in hand with the "look at me" generation, absolutley pathetic...

    and these two cunts are doing it just down the road from me, right outside the place i take my missus when i treat her to a slap up meal, they deserve a kicking, skinny jeaned mother fucking cunts...

    facebook is a load of shit anyway, i hate these fad websites where everybody adds everybody as a friend and yet, you've probably met them once, will never speak again, will never see each other again and just do it so u look cool with all ur "friends" lol and then they do garbage like this.

    seriously, how many ppls facebook profiles do you know where EVERYBODY'S friends write on their walls on a regular basis and are actualy "friends" on a regular bases... not alot lol.

    i hate logging on to mine because i have ppl who didnt like at school, still dont like, and probably never will, adding me as friends, or ppl i didnt even associate with... yet if i decline them, ill probs get hastle, if i accept them then its like acknowledging were friends? ugh... i prefer sending the odd text and going for a pint lol


    sorry for the rant, these things annoy me

    I'm all for each to their own on this sort of thing, to be honest, just 'cus I find it pathetic, don't mean next man doesn't enjoy it...

    Saying that, I did see some kids in the my village doing it as I was driving through, on some memorial statue & taking photos of it on their phones, I was forced to scream "GROW UP" out the window as I passed lol.

    Somebody 100%, without fail, will get hurt/maimed/killed doing this in a stupid place & there will be a media frenzy on it...

    You mark my words. :D

    I agree.

    I do think it's funny though, I know the guys that started it.
    A couple of years ago, it was just them doing it in clubs around here and every now and again getting chucked out because of it. Then they started the facebook group and I can't believe how much it has grown!

    Only realised yesterday when I saw this thread how fast it's grown!

    But yeah, someone will fall off somewhere high and hurt themselves and then it will be no more.

    On the contrary, I reckon it would skyrocket it...

    Tell people they shouldn't do X, because of Y & people will try & prove them wrong & end up Z. ;)

    I guess you're right especially if something stupid happened, like the game got banned or something, and it became a criminal offence to lie down in public :D
