The capitalists just advertise and open the doors - it's the good and decent people who decide to walk in.

I went to exactly one Black Friday 6AM opening at a Walmart about 12 years ago. My daughter wanted a Furby for Christmas, and I figured it was my only shot. No fights or shootings, but the store had 80 Furbies for something like 500 people who wanted them. I didn't get one. I got home shortly before noon and told my wife, "I love my daughter but there's no way I'm doing that again for a toy." My daughter was fine with that.

I've considered just going to walmart with the camera to get pictures of people being stupid.

Last year I was at my wal-mart for the midnight sale, and it was rather... uneventful Nothing bad happened and everything went according to plan. I even got some $5 blu-rays

Well that wouldn't be any fun in the least bit.
I'd go hoping and looking for carnage at every turn

Your right. Just one more good reason to post up in a stand.

I've done some Black Friday shopping, but after the first time my wife woke me up at midnight to go stand in line, I told her to kiss mine, that crap ain't happening again.

Indeed. That's what the internet is for.

Shopping, finding bargains and saving money, while in your underwear....or naked!
