  • Stocking is the new planking

    Hilarious internet meme. I think it beats planking hands down! ROFL.

      Sorry for the "duh," but can someone tell me what "stocking" and "planking" are?

          Planking is a recent internet meme. Here are some planking pics.
          Stocking is a new meme where folks replicate stock photo images for fun.

          From some random site I found:
          To play, all you have to do is find a stock photo of somebody doing one of the mundane things that are featured in stock photos, and then try to replicate that pose as best you can. The blog Stocking Is the New Planking is the official clearing house for these images of imitation, a few of which you can check out below.


          This ironing one cracks me up...

            Ah, thanks, gotcha. Basically flag-pole-sitting and phone-booth-stuffing for the 21st century.

              They showed Stocking on the CBS Early Show this past weekend as the latest trend. Once they do that the trend should be over. too much time for some people.

                Trends, by who discovers it and when:

                Day 1 - People who were there when it was first posted
                Day 3 - People who keep up with internet memes
                Day 20 - People who frequent general messageboards
                Day 50 - CBS Early Show

                  well, I actually did hear about it before that.
                  but they way they were talking about it and how cool it was.

                  you could add:

                        Toshi, I am glad you shared I think this is hilarious, unfortunately since I found out about it here, it's too late for me to play along!

                        Typ, you seem to have the best links!

                            My definition of data visualization is just that, the visualization of data. This could be anything from a simple Excel pie chart to something as elaborate as what the OP posted. I don't know how you've...

                            Apologies for taking this much of the OP's thread and I get what you guys are saying.

                            But data visualization is about the flow of data from there to there.

                            It might not be worth pursuing, but it just occurred to me that tilting a cube so that one of the corners is pointing directly at the viewer results in three sides of the block being visible. It doesn't...

                            I can see why she likes the scratchboard look of the blocks -- it is a nice look. As an illustrative technique, it's great. As a logo, though, it'll create potential problems for her.
