Smeggy Smurf: I wonder how many of the people camping out can do so because they're on welfare. I bet it's 90+% of them.
smerfnablin: Oh! Honorable mention to the woman who pepper sprayed shoppers last year?Let's see if she created a new tactic to clear crowds for this year
BunkoSquad: I hope there's a for-real bloodbath and maybe American will finally give this crap up.
Deedeemarz: Millennium: The Black Friday threads should totally link to the Black Friday Death Count site. Best place to get updates, probably.Whod'a thunk that Toys-R-Us is actually the site of more deaths than Wal-Mart?Really? You must not have been around for the Cabbage Patch Wars of '87 and '88, or the Tickle-Me-Elmo Battles of the late '90s/early '00s.I got this scar.....
super_grass: High point is not same as a bunch of people piled onto each other for cheap plastic crap.
spman: Also, did you REALLY see people in tents outside of Best buy "a few days ago"?
tommyl66: Smeggy Smurf: I wonder how many of the people camping out can do so because they're on welfare. I bet it's 90+% of them.Damn welfare queens with their tents and lawn chairs and sleeping bags. I heard from a reliable source that immigrants are having anchor babies in Black Friday lines so they can get secret special discounts for new mothers that Obama signed as an executive order without Congresses approval!
ZeroPly: I'll be at Walmart at 6pm tomorrow. I'll buy a single Fram PH3387 oil filter and stand in line for an hour with it clutched tightly to my chest. If anyone asks me I'll scream at them to keep their distance. But most people will leave me alone since I'll be wearing my Class A jacket with all my ribbons, biker shorts, and pink Crocs.

tommyl66: I think the people lined up outside Walmart should be treated like people lined up outside a movie theater. Drive by and yell spoilers at them. "YOUR KIDS ARE DOING DRUGS WHILE YOU WAIT IN LINE TO BUY CRAP TO TRY AND BUY THEIR LOVE!", or maybe "CHEAP GOODS WON'T MATTER WHEN YOU'RE DEAD!".
Sin_City_Superhero: picturescrazy: This is what should be open on Thanksgiving: police, fire, rescue, and maybe gas stations.LIQUOR STORES
Trainspotr: Saw a commercial yesterday for Big Lots, which will be open at 7am on Friday. Then I tried to think of something sadder than the kind of person who would go to Big Lots at 7am on the day after Thanksgiving.
EngineerAU: apoptotic: Apparently we're "celebrating" Black Friday here in Canada now too, as if Boxing Day turning into Boxing Week and then three weeks wasn't bad enough.I was in Paraguay this time last year and they had Black Friday sales all over the place. If a South American non-English speaking country can't avoid getting sucked into Black Friday, there's no hope for Canada./Except maybe Quebec because, well, Quebec is Quebec
davidphogan: The My Little Pony Killer: I'm going to be working food service tomorrow, and I'm going to be trying my damndest to be peppy and friendly to people tomorrow. Hungry as hell AND stupid enough to try to stop on Black Friday is just a bad combination when it comes to stress.Why is someone in food service going to be hungry? How shiatty is the place you work?
DJShamrock: My girlfriend wanted to go shopping tonight. I told her "I am disapoint." So she went to bed instead. Aw./watching Steelers-Broncos
Fubini: I just got back from Sears an hour ago. Got there at 7:30, they opened at 8:00. There were probably ~50 people waiting when they opened. Walked over to the appliances section, saved about $1200 off retail for a washer/dryer set (though you're not supposed to buy them for full retail price anyway). I dunno what the "true" savings were versus a normal sale price. I walked out of the store about 8:20. Got back home at 8:30.I did talk to all three of the salespeople I interacted with, none of them wanted to be there, which made me sad.

ZeroCorpse: FilmBELOH20: I went to Best Buy at 6:45, waited in line for about 45 minutes, and walked out with a $1000 55" LG LED TV for $500. I'm ok with that.So now we have established that $500 is your sellout price to treat your fellow men like wage slaves.Enjoy the TV. I hope it's a nice replacement for a soul.By the way... I bought a 50" LG on a normal day last year for $300, so really, all we've established is that you suck at bargain hunting.
mrEdude: let's see you buy your way out of the cesspool your country has become,'merica.
dudemanbrough: The next step will be to eliminate the whole family dinner/turkey thing from the holiday and instead encourage Americans to make it a big "day out" where you "shop til you drop" then stagger on over to Chili's to stuff your fat face instead of spending all day in the kitchen. Then they're going to come after Xmas hard with the ultimate goal of turning it into "Gift Card Spree Day". I give Xmas five years tops before it's broken too.
Nuclear Monk: Just regained consciousness in my car with a waffle iron covered in blood in the front seat next to me.The receipt says I got it for $4.50.#YOLO
Kyro: There's an Amazon deal right now for Dark Knight Rises on Bluray for $4. Ends in an hour.
ralanprod: Stopped by Best Buy to get an overpriced phone charger last night, and there were already people lined up outside to be first in the door for whatever sale is planned.My 8 year old son, unfamiliar with the whole black Friday/Thursday phenomenon, said to the first guy, "You know the store is OPEN right? You can just GO IN. You don't need to wait in line."He then told the guy at the security desk inside the door that there were a bunch of stupid people outside waiting to get in a store that is ALREADY OPEN !!!I considered explaining the whole thing to him, but the entertainment was way too good to mess up.
Old enough to know better: Only thing I'll be doing on Friday is cruising Youtube looking for videos of shoppers fighting each other.
Mike_LowELL: Black Friday is the high point of human civilization. Prove me wrong.
KarmicDisaster: Anyone want to take bets on the time that the first trampling reports will come in? How many maceings will there be? Maybe a couple shootings? Hope we get some good video, turn your phones on people and don't hold them vertically you morons.
Pokey.Clyde: what_now: No. Figure your shiat out the day before, or go without. It's not like you didn't know when the meal was going to be held.Because you've never forgotten something while shopping and had to go get it later./farking dumbass
Endive Wombat: BunkoSquad: I hope there's a for-real bloodbath and maybe American will finally give this crap up.Humor me - What do you mean by a "bloodbath?"
chachi88: See that's why you're a superhero. What's your superpower? Finding booze?
Bllasae: what_now: BunkoSquad: I hope there's a for-real bloodbath and maybe American will finally give this crap up.Yeah, because if there's one thing America will not tolerate, it's bloodshed of the innocent.Now if you'll excuse me, I need to work on my sign for the "Rally for Gun Rights" that's being held in Newtown Ct on the anniversary of the day that those 26 selfish children tried to block my freedoms.Idiot.
tommyl66: Sin_City_Superhero: picturescrazy: This is what should be open on Thanksgiving: police, fire, rescue, and maybe gas stations.LIQUOR STORESBuy your liquor today, it's not that difficult.
Snarfangel: JerseyTim: A lot of people are up in arms about stores opening on Thanksgiving night and how it denies workers time with their families and how shoppers will prioritize bargain shopping over holiday goodness.I say we should turn this into an opportunity. Stores like Wal Mart and Target should stay open all day on Thanksgiving, but they should serve delicious turkey meals for all their customers. Think about it. Instead of being holes up in our homes eating alone with our family, we can be out in Wal Mart, the center of our economic and social lives, enjoying a meal together as a community. It's what the Pilgrims would have wanted.Walmart is supposedly serving hot food of some kind to employees who are working Thanksgiving, but "encouraging" employees to bring dishes to share with each other. Which (while admittedly a first-world problem) is very sad.
gilgigamesh: Yanks_RSJ: If you're planning on being at Wal-Mart at 6pm on Thanksgiving Day, just kill yourself.Just imagine what a better world would result if we released mustard gas in front of every WalMart right then.

what_now: jayphat: This. Unless you desperately need a food ingredient to cook, go fark off and die. You're the primary reason people can't enjoy Thanksgiving with their families.Nope. No excuse. You forgot the cranberry sauce? Tough. No one likes it anyway. You forgot the mushrooms for the stuffing? Go without.This whole idea that EVERYTHING must be available to you the second you have a slight desire for it is annoying.

Benevolent Misanthrope: Fark that noise.As always, I'm all about the online Friday/Monday deals. I've already staked out the ones who ship to Canada for cheap.
