It doesn't change my mind (because I won't be going anywhere), but it does remind me how stupid people generally are.

I'm not going anywhere either. I'm shopping on Amazon it's much easier.

It's absolutely disgusting. People deserve to get trampled on Black Friday because there needs to be a weeding out of earth's morons.

AAAAAAGGGHHHHH! Black Friday illustrates the term "ugly Americans" better than anything.

Put me down on the "staying home and just saying no" list.

I'll be working in an empty credit union on Black Friday until 1pm. I plan to avoid the stores with the exception of the mall I park in. Plus I already have my personal Christmas gift coming (a 32gb Ipod Touch.) May look to amazon.com from the comfort of my apartment.

Gah! The hordes of morons! Unbelievable...

I wouldn't stand in line overnight for anything - not for The Rose Parade, not for my favorite band in concert, and certainly not to get $20 off that new TV I might want to purchase.

I cant belive grown adults act like 4 year olds fighting over a toy, except in this case they have to pay for it, all that waiting in line to buy something, pitiful.

I would rather shop online or go to the mall on some regular day when its not busy, I hate crowds.
