Crap, I just woke up - - by habit, not choice :(
Anyways, no damn plans to go out into that type of mess.
90% of my shopping is by internet.

I had the exact same thing happened to me. Normally I'm a camper and get in line around 12am on black Friday but this year I said "screw that!" after I saw the lines were already up to around 50-75 people at 7pm! I decided to just check to see how bad it got around midnight and it was just a madhouse. Every Best Buy that I drove by (5 total) had the exact same amount of people. The parking lots were nearly FULL and the store didn't open for 5 more hours. Saw A LOT of tents/canopy's. I agree, if you are going to wait in line for 12+ hours it's not even worth it. I think this year's PS3 waiters (getting in line DAYS before it came out) being all over the news showed people that it was acceptable to wait in line outside of a store for retarded amounts of time to get what you want.

Stores have sales all the time. What is the big deal about today?Is everything really that much cheaper or is it media blowing evrything out of proportion? No way I would wait in lines for days, hours or whatever.

I did mine on the net this morning. Same deals they had in the stores and most have free shipping.

Although by the time I got on most of the real good deals at Bestbuy were sold out.

I woke up early (not on purpose....thanks Xena *kicks dog*) and decided WTF....Frys had a decent computer case for free after rebate, so I hop on down....

Parking wasnt that bad, but god damn line inside the store wrapped around isles, and eventually ended at the END of the store. And my local Fry's is fawking huge, Costco size if not bigger. Fuck lines....I will pay the damn $70 for the case next week.

Sears, OTOH, had some killer tool deals this morning...and thier lines were short.

Then I browsed the mall and looked at lotsa MILF's....

Ended up doing more purchases over the web then in person....

Good website with lotsa deals posted daily is http://www.hotdealsclub.com/

I camped out from 12-5 in 30 degree windy best buy parking lot. I was about the 100th person there. The first got there at 4:30 pm the day before. I got the last camcorder on sale. Which is exactly what I came for. Hell I got a Samsung MiniDV camcorder, 8 tapes, a 2 gig Secure Digital card, and season 1 of prison break all for under 200. That is a damn good deal if you ask me. It would have cost 450+ otherwise. Was it worth it, yes but only cause I got what I wanted. Some of these people were there for 8-10 hours only to get beat to the door by some asshole that rolled up at 4:45 and stormed the door from the other end. Once inside it blew my mind what I saw. 1000 plus people fighting and trampling eachother only to get something they dont need or even want. All they know is that they are going home with something cause they had to deal with the mess. Women pushing babies in strollers through the mob, people cutting left and right, yelling, screaming, absolute madness. It was my first black friday experience and may be my last. That is unless i go next year to sit across the road and watch the madness.
