    This video shows that that dumb ass had nothing better to do. Ruining a holiday? Thanksgiving is hardly a fucking holiday in my opinion, as you can see from the line of people.

    Its all bollox anyway, what you save on a tv on black friday you already paid throughout the year when paying for over priced products.

    Here in the UK there have been stampede's and fights in shopping centers lol. Madness.

    People that wait in lines for days or camp outside stores are either extremely stupid, don't have a life/anything better to do, or poor.

    I want to share some words I got from an email from the CEO of one of the "successful people only" forums that I am a member of.

    Here it goes:

    With Thanksgiving dinner approaching and Black Friday around the corner, I felt compelled to share my thoughts on how stupid staying in line for Black Friday deals really is.

    While the majority of the people in line actually believe they are standing in line to save money, they are actually paying significantly more than they could imagine. That said, here is the reality of what someone who is a slave to society is really giving up.

    Think about the average person who waits in line about 5 hours on Black Friday before the store actually opens. They are giving up their ability to spend time with their family on this one day, and instead choosing to stand in line to save at most a few hundred dollars on something they don?t need that they will most likely buy on their credit card and go into debt for.

    It?s a sad reality that most people are lazy, but it?s even worse that most people are incapable of putting away their wants today, so that they secure their needs of tomorrow.

    As long as their basic human survival is left unharmed, then they feel it is perfectly ok to not plan ahead and immediately attend to their wants instead. This mentality, which fits in Circle 1, is often the mentality that prevents many people from actually reaching their most important goals in life.

    When you spend 5 hours of your life to save $200 on a TV for example, you are indirectly telling yourself that society and society only will forever dictate what you can or cant do, and unless they want you to or make it easy for you, you will certainly not be attaining any of the things you want. Those 5 hours spent in line could be worth certainly much more than $200, especially if you applied yourself enough to make it count and do something with your life.

    When I was much younger, my uncle took me a for test drive of a Camaro Z28, and made me assume for a moment that we were test driving cars for me when I turned 16 and would be able to buy one. After completely enjoying the ride and feeling empowered that such a car would be mine in a short period of time, my uncle told me that this indeed was for himself and that in my future would ride would be a Toyota Corolla ? not a Camaro Z28.

    Disappointed I was, but not because I wasn?t going to get the car I wanted, but rather because I understood how helpless it felt to have others telling you can or cant have something. This was the last time anyone had ever given me that feeling, and at 14.5 years of age I started working with the goal to reach that same car by the age of 16. Before I turned 17, I bought my first car, which was an equivalent of the Camaro Z28.

    The moral of this story is that I want you this season as well as in 2015 to start looking at life in a different manner, and not allow yourself to fall into the trap that society lays out for you.

    The goal of a retailer is to entice you to make a purchase based on your emotional wants, but your role in your own quest for success is to ensure you control your wants and are able to transition your time into useful behaviors that will forever last and residually help you improve yourself and your financial situation. This Black Friday, take the same time you were going to spend waiting in line, and use it to apply to something that will help you progress forward, rather than keep you back."

    it's actually not about Mark Dice. I know he is overdoing some shit. But I know where he's coming from and you can't tell me that people who are standing in line on Black Friday are not mentally enslaved. Bill Gates would never do that.

    The point here is basically that people are waiting in the line for hours while in the meantime they could have made that money they "need" to buy this shit by doing some real stuff. I bet 99% of these people are working a job and don't own their own business.

    Aren't Black Friday sales just "preview" sales, I sometimes see many of the tech items on sale for around the same price during the next year.

    The day I queue outside a shop for hours to get a few quid knocked off some shit I do not need, along with getting in a brawl with a bunch of morons, I will consider myself dumb and poor. But that is just me, my time is worth more than a few quid a hour.

    Whatever, who the fuck cares what other people have to do with their own time and money.. does pointing out on that makes you a better person? I don't think so, actually i'm absolutely sure it don't...
    The idiot in the video had nothing better to do, so as the op who thinks hes better than the rest, but you judgmental prick are the worst type of human.

    BTW thanks for CROAK!!

    In the US the stuff is actually cheaper. But in the country I live in the stuff is not. Iv'e been monitoring prices for the last to months and they have been increasing. A lot of electronics and stuff has increased over 50% in the last two months. The black friday sales are all for about 50%. So go figure...

    In America much of the "savings" is done by showing the max allowed price they can sell the item for according to the manufacturing. So if a TV was $289 before Black Friday, but the MSRP was $399, they could put it as $269, and say savings of 37% when there is only savings of 7%.
