Some people are like slinkies, not really good for anything but you cant help but laugh when you see one tumble down the stairs.

That's crazy. I have never gone shopping on Black Friday; I can't imagine what they're camped out for.

Hopefully they're just doing it for fun. If not, they're idiots.

srsly I wish I had that kind of time to hang out in front of some stupid store for 4 days.
Also would require that I be unemployed, too.

They all seemed to be 20ish . Yeah , some where on their Ipods ... one guy was playing with a PSP .... another guy was wearing his PJ's in a sleeping bag .

There where lots of people walking by them ... taking pictures of them with their cell phones.

IMO they just want attention. They probably don't even have money to buy nothing more than a cheap digital camera on Friday !

wow-already in line? Best buy doesn't even have a lot of great stuff this year.
If anyone did it chicago, they'd be crazy because it's literally freezing out.

I think the 5 days income they lose by waiting in line far out weighs any savings they will gain.

Maybe Best Buy paid them to stand in line so they create this illusion they have great deals on Black Friday?

Apple has hired actors and other small time celebrities to do similar things.

(Oh yea, Wozniak standing in line for a IPhone is quite credible)

LOL! They are probably there for some sort of video game.

I wonder if there will be a Walmart trampling this year?

LOL thats even better there are people who'd line up 5 days in line for a video game.

That would beat the hell out of people who line up for food in some Iraqi refugee camp.

Funny part is, the deals are going to get much better as we move towards Xmas this year with abysmal sales.

Can find better prices online any day of the year IMO. For the last few years I have been extremely disappointed w/ in store sales. The "deals" are prices that any net savvy shopper could find 365 days a year.
