Homo Sapiens? Maybe not. More like animals. Homo homini lupus est.

I've never understood people who will wait in a line, sometimes for days, to save a few hundred dollars on crap. Is their time worth so little money?

The fighting, stampedes, and other assorted stupidity mark Black Friday as the single most pathetic day of the year to go shopping.

There are reports people were buying Wal-Mart employee shirts for $100 to pass the waiting line. I admit I bought a few things online (there was no rush and I deliberately waited to get them cheaper on Black Friday), but I didn't take my handgun and go to Wal-Mart.

Online shopping is smart, especially with bargains.

I'm looking forward to Cyber Monday.

The only thing I wanted to buy is $300 off, so now it's only $2,699 instead of $3,000 :roll:
Fuck this shit.

The problem is the name. They shouldn't have called it Black Friday. I mean, what do you expect? You're talking about people who sign petitions to ban women's suffrage.

So what kind of weaponry you suggest to carry when going to the Wal-Mart on Black Friday? Will a sword do? Regarding suffrage, I think people who cannot manage their own affairs and budget should not be allowed to vote, women or not.

Given the general nature of the title, this seems to fit here:
Quote:
School apologises and covers up 'suggestive' statue of St Martin de Porres and a baguette
...
The statue in question is a depiction of St Martin de Porres handing bread to a young child.

But the baguette he is offering the youngster is held at waist height - making the act look much less saintly.

WINSTED, Minn. - A 19-year-old woman who authorities said had a little too much fun at a Minnesota music festival last weekend now has an unintended claim to fame after getting her head stuck in a truck’s oversized exhaust pipe.

Kaitlyn Strom’s strange situation Friday at the Winstock Country Music Festival was captured in a five-second video that has since been viewed millions of times.

Strom told the Hutchinson Leader that she was hanging out with friends on the festival’s first day when she spotted the red truck.

“We were just all having fun and I saw this big exhaust pipe and I was, like, ‘Hey, my head could probably fit in that,’” Strom said.

There was only one appropriate response to that situation, and they missed the opportunity.

That had to be a really dark day for the parents. My heart goes out to them. It's one thing to suspect, but to have confirmation must be devastating.
