Did everyone survive Black Friday 2011?
I am reading the damage reports and it looks like this year's Black Friday took it's toll on some people waiting in line as usual including people using pepper spray: http://news.yahoo.com/battle-black-f...165358707.html
Does anyone here have a good Black Friday experience or horror story to share? What did you get, etc.
I didn't venture out myself this year, but I have in the past and the year I did it was a LOT colder than this one so I kinda wish I did go out... although there is always Cyber Monday.

Well I don't live in the USA, but this thread does remind me of "Black Saturday" that happened here in Australia a while back, there were multiple bush fires that day. The temperature was around 40 degrees celsius (around 105 degrees in fahrenheit) but it was also a windy day, it was like hair dryers were constantly blowing wind on your face. There was a bush fire only 20 minutes away from were I live.

I wasn't going there and never will .. A Black Friday is stupid. Many people are riots there and got injured.. selfish and disgusting people. Nah.

..pff, I counted on Amazon this year and they totally blew it. Many lightning deals either were sold out the instant they went live (including full waitlist in seconds), or they just vanished suddenly for no reason. I did, though, get the PS3 Mayhem bundle.

It just meant I was really busy at work which sucked and I hate shopping so that didn't affect me , besides your taking your life in your hands to go shopping on black friday.
