    I saw this. It's heartbreaking. 5 deaths and 83 injuries to irreplaceable, precious human beings, for the sake of first dibs at mass-produced low-cost objects.

    It's far better to sit at home and meditate than to go into places destined for mass congestion and ultimate explosion!

    But what did you really do on Black Friday?

    I slept until 10am and felt incredibly rested.

    I would have thought the numbers higher, given all the press devoted to the subject of people mangled in Black Friday crushes. The press treats Black Friday like the Pamplona running of the bulls.

    My thoughts match FLD's on this, those numbers seem tame for the notoriety Black Friday gets.


    As an aside, #7 happened in a Kohl's less than 10 miles from where I live. Chicagoland suburbs, representing.

    I'm glad @FLD mentioned those counts are the sum of seven years.

    The Onion's version matches Black Friday's reputation better: 42 Million Dead in Bloodiest Black Friday Weekend.

    I did go shopping, but I got like seven books, and I got them at Goodwill. No stampede, either.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    LOL at the Onion piece! Sometimes the Onion is a little too dark for my taste- like, if it had been "42 Million People Die A Little Bit Inside In Most Successful Black Friday Ever" (which is totally something I can see them doing- and then expounding on how people fight for the *best* stuff to give their family members because they don't know how else to express affection, or something), that'd be a downer to me. But I thought that one was super funny.
