    It hit us this year, my parents wanted us to come to FL for thanksgiving. But my wife wanted to do bf like I said earlier. If it had been Friday morning like it used to be, we could have pulled it off. Hopefully it starts moving back here soon.

    Over there <points>
    I told my coworkers, whom were talking about the black friday lines, about this funky new thing called teh interwebz. I went on to tell them about how they could buy everything they want from online stores and have them gift wrapped and shipped to you (or whomever is getting the gift) without ever leaving the house. Plus the deals are roughly the same (if not exactly) and there's no need for a friggin' tent.

    I think it caught on.

    how much can they really save?

    lets say they buy 2 big ticket items...and save $200 each.. total $400.
    camping out for 6 days and nights..
    24 hrs x 6 = 144 hrs
    $400 / 144 = $2.78

    really?

    and if you calculate in the lost opportunities .. the loss/cost goes up

    I used to spend every Black Friday camping out with some friends at the local Best Buy, but after missing dinner last year - I was in the dog house. Needless to say, I learned my lesson. No more local Black Friday shopping. Save it for the online deals, which are often better.

    That is nuts. I'll admit I thought about doing it for one of the T.V..'s they have up.

    So OCN is that you and all of your friends then?:D;)

    If you truly have nothing better to do it could kind of be fun I'd say.

    ummm no that is not me nor my friends. we have better things to do on black friday. but i went last year around 6am and the line wrapped way down the building. it eventually went across the railroad that is directly behind the store. they had porta potties and vendors were there providing hot dogs with grilled vegetables. it was a crazy scene. not this year for me. LOL

    I went to Best Buy this afternoon and saw six tents in front of the store... I was a bit shocked, I don't recall any other year where people were a whole 24hrs early... (which isn't as impressive as ocn seeing 'em a week early....) :)

    Made me think of this thread ;)

    In my area, someone pitched a tent Monday at Best Buy, I couldn't believe it. They were on the local news and one of them said they will stay there in shifts, and they got tired of being second in line!

    I went to Walmart last night to get my wife a rubbermade container set, bad idea.

    One lady punched another in the face over a blender. A guy was arrested in the parkinglot for selling tazers to underage kids. The parkinglot was packed, I highly enjoyed myself watching all the crazies grabbing everything they could get their hands on. I also got a 16gig flash drive for like 6 bucks or something.

    When I left I swung past the BestBuy and it was just as crazy there. The crowd was around the building already.
