    and people are already camped out for Black Friday deals?  What the?

    Absolutely no retail deal is worth that.

    I've camped out for commodities, and I'd camp out for citizenship if it was a limited opportunity and a first-come basis, and I'd camp out for a coveted job, or dental or healthcare. But for toys? Never.

    All knowledge is worth having. Check out OctopodiCon to support steampunk learning and fun. Also, on DKos, check out the Itzl Alert Network.

      I couldn't believe this, but while I was busy with other things, we've apparently become a country of people who are content to sit around for five days to save $50 on some overpriced must-have item.

      Don't get me started on what kind of message this sends to kids ("I love you sooo much that I gave up three days of vacation to sit in a lawn chair and wait for the sale to get you your XBox") or retailers ("Yes! I am a gullible chump with disposable income and I will surrender to your awesome mind control").  The fact that TV news stations show these people 24/7 as some sort of human interest phenomenon is problematic too.

      Those who do not understand history are condemned to repeat it... in summer school.
