The electronics especially is manufactured more cheaply to sell at a cheaper price.
My experiences with Black Friday have never included being trampled. Nor shot at, or even witnessed a fight or anything of that nature. That particular Wal-mart must have been an aberration.

As far as I am concerned, participating in Black Friday should be grounds to forfeit your right to vote, right to have children, etc. We can't have these people continuing to deplete the gene pool..
You know 15ish years ago it was actually ok. It was a few selected specials and the kick off of the holiday shopping season. Most people were in a happy mood and it was a little fun.
It has completely morphed into something unrecognizable.
I know. I remember going when I was a kid like 30+ years ago. It was no where as crazy as it is now. I mean I remember a few fights back in the day over Tickle Me Elmo and Cabbage Patch Kids, but I don't recall people getting trampled, fights over parking spaces, etc. I don't even recall it being all that crowded. We had to get the mall a little earlier, but it wasn't anything like camping out at 6am and all that madness that goes on now.
I stay far away from malls now on Black Friday. In fact, we actually prefer to travel on Black Friday as the airport isn't crowded.

I need all of your thots and preyerz. I started working at Walmart this year, and I will be there on Thanksgiving and Black Friday. We probably got in 100 pallets of merchandise for the event already.
