Living in Italy, I didn't know what the Black Friday thing was about. What I just saw in the video posted by Nephilim leaves me speechless. Always glad not to be one of "them".

By a mile.

Hilarious, got a good laugh out of that one laugh.
I refuse to comprehend how bad it would be to brave Black Friday or your alternative.

I feel like I must shower after shopping at Walmart.

I can't imagine it on Black Friday.

I wonder what people will say of Cyber Monday in decade. laugh

People don't realize that the stores gradually mark the items up over a few weeks then drop them to just under their original price for the sale, so you're really not saving much.

That said, I did what little shopping I had to do, online. Quick and easy.

I don't see anything inherently wrong with shopping on Black Friday. I took the time to research what was going on sale where, what things were worth buying at the given prices, made those purchases, and took them back home. I didn't have to camp out or anything like that. I don't mind shopping for technology I want; I'm shamelessly materialistic and greedy as it is anyway.

Black Friday has discovered the internet. I scarfed 2 iphone 5's for half price.
