Default Who's shopping on Black Friday?

Just curious how many of you are going out to shop on black friday. Personally I don't want to deal with crowds and parking, but I've seen some rather tempting ads...

Yep, those tempting ads have created a bug. I would like to see if I can get some things that I have been putting off, hopefully they will be a lot lower priced.

I'll be supporting the US NAVY and I'll be on watch from 4-8AM that morning. Even so, SWMBO would probably have me stay at home and watch the kids while she shopped. I'm pretty sure I've never been to a Black Friday sale, and I'd rather get butt raped with a razor blade condom that go out on that day. I pretty much go hermit from mid November to the day after X-Mas and only venture off base if I absolutely have to. I don't even look forward to going to the LHBS to get ingredients right now because of the traffic, but I have to make exceptions.

No chance in Hell, I don't like crowds and I don't like shopping so yeah you get the point.

Plus, I'm a litle scared to buy too much these days with our shyte economy.

Hell no. In fact... F-no. I hate the type of people who flock to these events.
