I ordered all of my Black Friday deals online. The "extra" I'm paying is shipping.

My wife and mother went to Walmart. I refused. I stayed at the house sipping red wine and played Skyrim until I felt like going to bed.

They made it home around 2 am, tired, hungry, and pissed off beyond belief.

Self inflicted stress is what I told her. It didn't go over very well.

Englishwoman didnít know what Black Friday is. Googled it. OK I know now. Interesting title.

I would rather go back to rounding up an Angus herd, which I did many years ago, than to put up with the human herd.
I stay home on Black Friday and enjoy my German Shepherd and my Corona beer.

I'd rather take an olfactory enhancing drug and spend the day steam-cleaning old cat piss out of the carpet than show up at WalMart the day after Thanksgiving.

By a mile.

Completely not worth it to shop on Black Friday.

I buy what I need in gifts earlier in the year at less busy times, make them myself, or order them online.

"To be born into this world a sentient, self-conscious and reasoning being, surrounded by inexhaustible glories in Nature, which we may comprehend, possess,enjoy; to be able to rise on the wings of a lofty imagination; to be able to get glimpses of the ideally perfect; to apprehend the Divine; it is to the development and enjoyment of these high powers that the young man is invited. How dare he refuse to qualify himself by the most perfect training of all his powers." Lyman J. Gage 1910

This is an interesting article:

... Better Than Most Nature Shows

Black Friday is what it is because people choose to buy into the hype. Thatís fine because itís their own choice to do so. But itís interesting to note that the frenzy itself is influenced by a whole host of our own internal triggers that push us to gather what we perceive to be the most valuable resources. That desire for resource acquisition gets even more bloodthirsty when its our kids involved, whether or not the darn kid actually wants the last Dora the Explorer video game on the shelf.

And, apparently, it's an insult to lemmings to be compared to Black Friday shoppers... They're certainly cuter, little freakin' tribbles. grin

Apparently their inclination toward mass suicide is a myth, too:

I did some of my shopping on Thurday and still found some good deals. I don't care for the whole Black Friday thing. It is just a marketing ploy to get the sheep to buy crap for a BS holiday.

I don't believe I've ever shopped on a Black Friday and most probably never will.

Thanksgiving night my wife and two of her friends left about 11pm and did not return until around 4 in the morning. I gladly stayed home and went to bed at my usual time.

The one good thing is that they brought me back a nice Ralph Lauren Polo shirt. Besides that I have no idea what other crap they bought.

Black Friday:

Iīve never experienced a Black Friday sale (and I donīt want to). However I have had to tug a dress away from a fellow shopper in a crowded market who was trying to grab it from me as I browsed.

I much prefer ordering online for sales like this, especially when itīs downloadable content. Instant gratification!

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".

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.
