'Porting':The latest pointless internet craze

21 posts in this topic

Ready for another crazy online trend? Students from Durham University have filmed themselves pouring bottles of Port over their heads, in a video called Porting.

Porting is an answer to the Milking video from students from rival Newcastle University which has seen more than 500,000 people watch the video in the last two weeks.

A spokesperson for Porting Durham said: 'It’s all about oneupmanship. We started out trying to get one better than our student cousins at Newcastle but, due to our lactose intolerance we were unable to do it with milk.

Totally useless. I don't see why people do these kinds of things. Are they really desperate to be "cool?"

You could say that about pretty much everything adults do in society.

I don't see it as any more pointless then most social contracts and fads. Its just something...people do.

IMO drinking the port would be far more fun. a020.gif

Planking was a far superior meme.

Can't wait to see where this oneupmanship ends - you'll have students pooling their resources to buy 100 year old scotch or rare wines to pour over their heads.

And while I would prefer drinking too, I am glad these young and obviously already befuddles minds are missing their mouths by a head.

In this present moment, you've got people dying of thirst in third world countries, and these retards wasting drinks.

Somebody ought to take a Port and smash it 'round their thick skull.

All of it is so stupid . Wasting money ,and food . Baby calfs are torn from the mama cow,so we can have milk,and they waste it,then make a lame joke about intollerance,and waste something else.

They can do us all a,favor,and do it with gasoline ,and then light up a match .

People are idiots !

Ahhh the human race, always doing it's best to assure that any intelligent race who stumbles upon us will either stop briefly to pick up some lab samples or do periodic fly-bys of the wildlife preserve called Earth. There's certainly no reason for them to want any communication, but maybe they'll throw food out the window as they fly through and take pictures. They can't slow down much though or we'll shoot at them.

Planking was a sort of Darwin-award endeavour weeding out the insane.

Its one thing to plank in your kitchen >>

but planking like this earns you the Darwin Award>>

I guess it will end with something like this.>>>

But with port wine instead of water, and a person instead of a car.

I don't even want to know what might be the next bizzare crave.

Stupidity in the 21st century. Guessing it will never stop.

Probably something like "Let's see how many horse hairs we can pluck from it's body before it kicks us into the emergency room"

Well formula 1 drivers do it with champagne on the podium....

While de-hydrated marathon runners do it with water...

However college students don't do orthodox.

The things they do just in the name of rivalry.

Black coffees all round in the Newcastle campus bar...

Btw those plankers are as thick as two short planks.

This is a form of celebration, I guess.

Marathon Runner's do it for the sake of refreshment, to quench themselves.

Agreed, haha.

I agree with both of you. I'm not much of a drinker but Port is one I do like.
