So far outside the box you can't even see the box from here.

Black Friday is a wonderful opportunity. No, not to buy Christmas gifts. That's only a small part of it. The day of shopping madness is a perfect way to simulate the Zombie Apocalypse. The stores will be full of crazed people trying to snap up goods that are in short supply. It will be a crazy time, a violent time, a time of mercantile madness.
Sure, during this past hurricane season plenty of people got lots of practice stripping store shelves bare, but the rest of the country missed out. Black Friday is here for everyone. All you have to do is show up.
Personally, I'm going to employ the same tactics I plan on using during the collapse of society in a world without rule of law. I'm going to sit tight and avoid going out into the fray. The only way to win is not to play.
The sad truth is that most of the deals aren't really that great. Sure, there will be some loss leaders to get people into the stores. Is is worth risking life and limb to save a few dollars on some electronic gizmo? Heck, I don't even know what the “must have” gift is this year. Is there even such a gift this time around?
Instead of doing battle I'll hang out with my loved ones and chill. My Zen-like calm will be aided by large turkey, cranberry and gravy sandwiches.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
