best quote i've heard about black friday is that once a year we get to see what an apocalypse would look like in real time.

probably not far from the truth.

Jesus, people just go piling in not even caring what they grab. Just as long as it's on sale. It's disgusting, and it's also sick that some canadian stores are following suit. Fuck that. I just don't understand why people are fighting to get to a stupid toaster oven or what ever the hell that junk was.

Yeah,but paying boutique prices for average things is kind of BS.

well some things might be a little more but I don't mind paying a little more to support local and you can always buy stuff when you are out of town …there is a walmart in Terrace [HTML_REMOVED] PeeG

I can't believe we actually all agree on something. I was happy to work on friday when all but one other person took the day off. Still had most of the afternoon to go hunt, since there were no bosses around and I worked until 9pm twice this week. It's sort of like Christmas Eve. Why work when everyone who does show up leaves by noon?

I did order a few Christmas presents online, but as far as getting up at 5am to fight for the cheapest tickle me elmo, who the fuck would actually want to be around that many people, standing in line, crowding into stacks of made in china crap.

That's the problem with cities, they're refuges for the weak, the fish that didn't evolve.

I don't want to google this - sounds like a thing that NSMB will be better at.

Should probably look for the link to the clip I saw watching the news. Two women got in a fight and were ground and pounding when one got out a tazer. Fuck watching UFC, lets just get some better HD cameras in there next year maybe.

that chick was throwing 'em! I'd have tazed her too

This year I am thankful for,

us all agreeing for 1 weekend on 1 topic.

To be honest though almost everyone seems to agree, but it's been funny listening to people rationalize why them going to black friday was different. "nono like I spent 2 minutes looking up what I wanted BEFORE I went". No ribbon awarded, that shit is not a next level maneuver.

Heads up for anyone interested in cyber monday sales, starts their sale at 9:00PM tonight. Low likelihood of being trampled.

I just want another SSD for my new comp. Kind of cheaped out and got a really small one to make due (already full with just games and OS) with the thought of trying to snatch one up for cheap during this sale.

what's size SSD was too small Kevin? I've been teetering on a SSD for a long time now, I just can't justify the expense to benefit, but will check out ncix tonight.

I maxed out a 120gb pretty fast with EVE BF4 windows and a couple other games, but in reality just getting your OS on an SSD is going to be a huge speed increase on an average computer.

Most of the time you are just upping maybe 25% at best on a new processor or just getting enough ram to not max out, but SSD to HDD speed difference is rediculous. Boot times are around 12 seconds max if you get windows on one.

nothing that impressive for cyber monday came out. Meh, not much time wasted. Honestly I got some of this stuff for cheaper by exploiting price matching+ offers a month ago. Oh well. Almost ordered a second keyboard for work though, but not sure they want me to send in another $100+ item two paycheques in a row. Probably better off paying full price and expensing it in a few months.
