Black Friday is stupid, as are most of the people who engage in the idiocy.

What these people forget is that time is money.

You want a TV. Fine. Whatever store is having a sale for $50 off the TV. You camp out, wait in a Cold-War-Soviet-Union-Bread-line style line to both get in and get out of the place…

If someone offered you $50 cash to endure all of that, would you do it? I wouldn’t…

Besides, most Black Friday deals are bait-and-switch. 65” TV for $100…then the fine print says like 5 available.

If you drill online, especially on Cyber Monday, you can find deals just as good, if not better. Most have free shipping, and you don’t have to leave the comfort of your computer.
