200 allocated, 1000 showed up....two trampled to death. Couldn't help but think of LV, with lots of seniors and buffets. It is a very regular routine for many.

Every year I expect this on Black Friday. I'm surprised the death rate isn't high on that day.

I am glad they don't do that here. And probably for that exact reason. The casinos would love to get that many people in the door but they know the free stuff grab would bring terrible publicity when something like that happened.

Buffets aren't so expensive that I would risk life and limb to get a coupon for a free one. I feel the same way about Black Friday discounts, which Tek_Freek alluded to.

I'm not surprised. People will plow for the free samples at Costco. Just saying.

Every year you hear about fist fights over merchandise on Black Friday. Not too many fisticuffs at Costco, though.
