  • Another Friday after Thanksgiving Madhouse!

    The stupidity level of the frenzied shopper continues to reach new heights of insanity. (Drudge headlines as of 6:30AM Friday.)

    SEASON'S BEATINGS: Shoppers punch and kick; Baby hit with shoe...
    One shot outside mall, brawls shut another...
    Chaos goes global...


    $20 BILLION BLACK FRIDAY FRENZY!



    Just what is so attractive of the originally overpriced junk these morons are fighting over? (safe bet those big screen TVs will have cracked screens for sure.)

    Especially when you get better deals on the Net.

    I won't even go into town today. It's crazy.
    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

      Stupid people doing stupid things as usual. We're staying home today (well, I do have to go to the bank to cash a check), avoiding the asshattery, and putting up Christmas decorations. Nice and quiet and calm and sane. The way I like it.

        I'm surprised due to political correctness it is allowed to be called black Friday.

        My worst jump story:
        My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
        As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
        No lie.

          It seems to be the new way to burn calories and lose all the weight gain from a hearty Thanksgiving meal.

              Spending the day home today, laughing at the lemmings.
              Only in America is shopping a contact sport.

                  I used to think it was a play on the day the Great Depression started. What it actually means is that the retailers want us to think they have been "in the red" all year, operating at a lose.
                  They don't go into the plus side of the yearly equation (written in black ink on the charts) until that day.... suddenly, magically, and if they miss this one month they have to close up shop.

                  Myth-making 101.

                    Interesting; I didn't know that.

                    I can't rep you so soon.

                      It is not a complete myth. Department store chains such as Macy's have many stores that do operate at a loss until the Holiday shopping season. Out of all the stores of the Macy's California Division, the only one that pulls it's weight for most of the year is Macy's Union Square in San Francisco. Even then it operates in the red from Dec 26 until tax return season. When the Loma Prieta Earthquake damaged the flagship store on Oct 17 1989, all necessary resources and personnel from the entire division as well as other divisions such as Macy's New York Division were sent to San Francisco. They got the store reopened by the afternoon of the second day after the quake, and within a week, one would never have known that the store had suffered any damage at all, if they were not there to have seen the aftermath of the disaster immediately afterwards.

                      One store keeps the entire division alive and the profits are truly made as a group effort during the Holiday shopping season.
