Black Friday



Summary of the day:

Samsung 50-inch Plasma HDTV: $798
Bissel Compact Upright Vacuum: $28
Samsung 10.2 megapixel digital camera: $69
"The Incredible Hulk" DVD: $9
That shoppers cared so much about these sale prices on Black Friday they trampled a Wal-Mart employee to death when the store opened at 5am: Priceless Surprising?

Quote of the day:

"When [Wal-Mart employees] were saying [the customers] had to leave, that an employee got killed, people were yelling, 'I've been in line since yesterday morning!'" [the witness] said. "They kept shopping."

Question of the day:

Why do people wait outside in the cold all night to buy a $9 DVD when they could be in their warm beds dreaming about eating leftover turkey and biscuits?

If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.
