Who doesn't love Black Friday. Nothing brings people together better than $200 crap flat screen TVs at Walmart. It's a great festive feeling ripping stuff out someone's hands and then getting maced and then being carried out by Walmart security.

That's if you make it through the doors without getting trampled to death by mobs of deal-hungry shoppers.

Holiday shoppers mugged by Darth Maul in Best Buy parking lot....
You know you'll need to change your avatar afterwards right? :D
My face isn't quite has tattooed as Darth Maul so I should be okay, but to play it safe I may keep my mugging restricted to Walmarts a little further from the one I shop at.

I hope nobody thinks I am serious about mugging Black Friday shoppers and understand I am joking.

Not on this forum. This is like an airport. Everything said is taken completely serious.

I've already called the police.
And you are the very mod who I would have suspected would have done so. Will you please tell them I have no intention of taking any bombs on any planes I may be traveling on in the near future?

It should be called Black Thursday. I feel that store associates are overworked and they don't get to spend any time with their families. That is what Thanksgiving should be about but I'm sure my opinion is in the minority. I'm fortunate that I don't have to work on Black Friday as Intel employees get the day off.

You're not in the minority, but it's the way it is and it's something people need to consider before applying for jobs in retail. Even if we closed the stores, the country couldn't shut down on Thanksgiving. Retail workers aren't the only ones working. People who work in health care, law enforcement and many other places are also expected to work many of the holidays.

Beyond the crappy TV sales, there are some good ones this year. Dell has the M-series 65" for $947 and they throw in a second year of warranty coverage.
