Well it's black friday in the US. I've been following the amazon sales this week and there's been some good deals, but here's a video for the riot-like atmosphere at some store, with people fighting over phones on sale.



The amazing thing is, they aren't looting, they then have to queue and pay for them

Why is it called Black Friday? I was having this discussion yesterday and put forward it was because when all the poor black people can afford to buy stuff and was told I was being racist, but it made sense to me. Cos I always thought "Black Friday" was a label stuck on really horrible, bad, tragic days, not big exciting days.

Because retailers get into the black (sales revenue).

According to Wikipedia, that's not the original meaning:

Funny, but only until he starts relating things to NWO, at which point he just sounds like a dickhead.

Imagine this kind of thing happening at Tiffany :D

I have to wonder how many $ you have to save to find it worth waiting in a line that line.

Thing is, those dudes on the megaphones, if they've ever bought anything at target, or ever bought anything 'chinese', it kinda weakens their whole line of attack, and I dare say that they would have, and they will again.

I watched some more of his videos.

Illuminati!!!!!!

i like it that he criticizes the zombies for spending money they don't have on stuff they don't need yet constantly pushes his book, but I guess it's hard to make a living selling anti-consumerism.

Why let trampling over both your fellow human beings and your own dignity get in the way of saving a couple of dollars?

it's not a couple of dollars, it's lots of money. I've been watching the amazon lightning sales this week. there's lots of good deals.

like, today's main deal is Bond 50. That's the The Complete 22 Film Collection [Blu-ray] (2012) for US$99 which is ~50% off.

$6 for delivery before christmas, $12 for delivery in <3 weeks.

And there's been significant savings on things all week, but I wouldn't trample people to get to them. If you planned your christmas shopping right you could do it for < half your intended spend.
