    Black Friday!!

    I found this really cool website called blackfridayinfo.com that lists all of the stores and their prices for items on Friday of this week.

    One thing that stood out was a HP - 42" 1080p Flat-Panel LCD HDTV that is listed now on BestBuy.com for $1,499.99. On Friday will be $996.99!

    I will not be leaving the house on Friday if I can in any way help it. I hate black Friday with the passion of a thousand burning suns.

    I with you. I hate shopping on a normal day. Throw in a couple hundred extra people and I'm a bit beyond wanting to go postal.

    Don't even bother trying to go to Best Buy. People start camping out Thursday night at 9 pm, before they close and just sit there all night. By the time the store opens there will literally be thousands of people lined up...

    Not to mention, don't most stores stock about 5 of these "mega-deals"?

    Yeah I think I heard last year people were lined up for a 200 dollar laptop or something at Best Buy and they only had 10 or so total.

    Last Fall I made the mistake of going to Best Buy to get in line at 4AM because they had a super deal on two or three things I wanted. I was probably 150th in line even though I got there at 4AM. By the time I got in the door, everything I had gone there to get was gone. I'm never doing that again, that's for sure.

    Nothing is worth getting up at 4am to get in line in the cold for...The black friday deals are not THAT good.

    I get up earlier than that for tailgating. And yes it is worth it.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.
