Black Friday Mayhem.

Damn. This is why I can't do Black Friday anymore. The deals are sweet, but the long ass lines and deranged goons are too much.

Individual is smart. People are panicky and dumb. That said, we are still animal with the instinctive need to compete over stupid shit.

I have never shopped during any Black Friday or any other hyped up holidays for shopping by retailers. And I pray to whatever deity is accepting prayers, please don't let me ever shop on those days even if I lose all of my sanity...

I look at these videos and can't help but have these terrible thoughts about what if someone brings a gun and starts shooting? Conditions are ripe for anyone to act out. I cringed when those two officers were trying to put cuffs on that women with their backs turned while one of the spectators surrounding them could very easily try to go for their guns. Cops have one of the worst possible jobs out there.

I also shop online though I still go to stores, but never at this time of year. I would rather pay a few dollars more than getting into a pissing contest with someone for reason that would make sense exactly at that moment in time.

When you shop online and claim you are more rational, it would be hypocritical.

Especially when you participate in Cyber Monday.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

No claims to being rational whatsoever. There is a claim to there being a much smaller possibility of getting involved in potential physical violence with another person trying to purchase the same item, though.

Speaking of which, I am looking forward to Cyber Monday....

You should see what some people do for new Jordans.

If it gets to extreme cases, some governor may try to call in the National Guard.

Canada's Black Friday sale, from my working perspective:

"There will be no horsing around or impatience, or you will be kicked out."
"...okay."

I'm trying to make it a habit to go for the stuff that most people don't want- therefore, I can go to the store hours after the storm ends and things finally calm down, and I still get the stuff I want at a cheaper than usual price (in this case, it was a 2DS and a few used games from Gamestop... actually took me longer at Gamestop than Walmart, but I got all the games I wanted)

There is a special space in hell reserved for those who would trade their dignity for savings of usually no more than 50 - 200 dollars.

What happens if the console gets damaged during the catfight? Does Sony's warranty covers damages for that?
