    Default Black Friday!

    So, how many of us plan on going to any stores and camp out all night like a bunch of super consumers? I drove past the best buy an hour ago and there are already like 3 tents. To be honest, I'm glad my lack of money is keeping me from freaking out and buying a super cheap HDTV.

    Black Friday has always bothered me. I love how a few sales on crap people REALLY don't need cause soccer-moms to unleash the inner soccer hooligan in them and bust people's noses just to get to be the first one to touch a popular child's toys. I'm pretty sure videos from Black Friday rival the videos in India as far as mass amounts of people in hysterics.

    I don't do Christmas presents.

    It really depends on how much money i have at the time and who they are for. I usually only buy like 1 gift each for 4-5 people. I never give out to my family. Thats just all sorts of lame.

    I'd rather burglarize someone's house while they're on vacation, and sleep in their bed. Regularly.

    I went and bought a new 32 inch flat screen for my room so I can put this one in the guest bedroom. I paid under $400.00 so I'm happy.

    In business, to be in the "black" means to have positive numbers.

    As opposed to red which is negative.

    So to have a Black Friday means businesses are hoping for lots of profit.

    All I did was cuss at people walking slow enough to qualify as sloths and cursed at traffic as well.

    Shitty commercial holiday.

    Actually.. Close..

    Black refers to breaking even. Most retail places will either break even at 0 or be slightly UNDER zero.

    Green would be positive numbers.

    Thank you for trying to correct me.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Friday_(shopping)

    When this would be recorded in the financial records, once-common accounting practices would use red ink to show negative amounts and black ink to show positive amounts. Black Friday, under this theory, is the beginning of the period where retailers would no longer have losses (the red) and instead take in the year's profits (the black). The earliest known use, again found by Bonnie Taylor-Blake, is from 1981, again from Philadelphia, and presents the "black ink" theory as one of several competing possibilities:

"We work extra hard. It's a long hard day for the employees
