A few days prior to Black Friday, prices start to skyrocket, so the products will be offered with huge "discounts" that end being close to the old price, or sometimes even bigger. Some other stores just blatantly lie about the previous price, so a product which costs, say, $50, will be marketed as "WAS $140, NOW JUST $70!!!"
The people, just, go along? Why?
Don't you people talk to each other?
Lots of people don't fall for this buillshit, but if the stores keep doing it, I guess it must work to some degree.

Black Friday Information?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTEsK5udmc4
Maybe. This is a difficult time for many people.
Black Friday is like the starting gun shot for a race to despair for many people.
Such pressure on people. Many collapse.
I surrender early and avoid the rush.
I give up on September 21st.
I start giving up on June 21st.
After June 21st, every day is shorter than the day before.
The mean bastards Save Time in Oct.
Is if life is not fucked up enough, they decide to Save Time in Oct??
On that day the length of daylight hours falls not by 10 minutes, but by an hour and ten minutes.They
have been saving time for a long time. Where is it? I think it might be nice to get into the savings.
***I have something to Rant about. It is not much, but it made me think.***
I was talking to a woman, out in public.
We were chatting about ideas.
"No." I said, "Those ideas came from BC 500."
She looked at me funny and said, "Were there people in BC 500?"
It made me think and say. "BC 500? Plato?" (I did not have an internet connection.)
I was not sure of the numbers. But; I was fairly sure in BC 500, people were people.
Pre-History, Ends When?
Then History starts up.
History begins when? When does it end?
What the fuck does History have to do with us?

Siding Spring's Mars visitation will also overlap with that of another Mars newcomer, NASA's Maven spacecraft.
To be launched this November, it will arrive at the Red Planet in late September 2014, with Comet Siding Spring set to make its closest approach to Mars on Oct. 19.
There is so much that I don't know.
I ask Wikipedia. Wikipedia knows a lot.
The article says Siding Spring will visit Mars.
Siding Spring is new to Mars, the planet.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siding_Spring_Observatory
What? New to looking at the Red Planet or The Whole Ship is going on a journey? What?
Siding Spring is a place not a thing. No. It is a thing and a place? Of course; That can happen.
Then it says Siding Spring is the name of a comet.They named it?
Nothing bothers me about that, I wish.
The number system is still a good system for naming anonymous points of light in the great enveloping deep
Is that what Sagan said? What do you think is out there?
Is deep space unimaginably deep?
When did you first notice the stars?
In cities people look up and see The Star.
I think there might be children somewhere that think the Moon is a Star.
Why not? In a city. A mother loves the night sky there, too.
Into a park or down by the river they go.
The moon rises. They watch. It is like star gazing for near sighted people.
I can see stars with my unaided eyes. I was impressed.
As a child I would watch them come out.
I would stand beside the car in the depths of Winter, far from City Lights, in the deep dark and gaze up at the stars with my family.
When I got corrective lenses: It Rocked Star Gazing! When I could really see them. I got on my Grandmother's nerves.Where?
There? What is that? Where?
Like mankind with a telescope.
Why does mankind look up?
This belongs in What I Learned Today.
Not Everyone Looks Up.
Be careful. Not everyone sees The Stars.
I have no idea what the Irish Poet was attempting to say.
Those words mean something different to me, today.
When I first read those words, they stopped me dead in my tracks. We are all in the Gutter.
Some of us see the Gutter.
Some of us see the Stars.
easy to memorize words. What do they mean?
Some people look at he stars. Some people look at the ground.
I would expect Geologists and Entomologists like Earth Based study.
Looking down all the time. Well; A lot.
Even a Geologist can enjoy looking at the Stars.
It is boring. After a while the little Geologist will fall asleep. https://www.google.com/search?q=north+s ... B640%3B429
The stars move. It is not engaging entertainment for anyone.
That is why God created cameras.
This one is better.
Darn! I lost the good one.
Some seem to be photoshopped.https://www.google.com/search?q=north+s ... B570%3B238
Ahhhh! I see weird shit!
Huff. Puff. Pant!
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.
We are all in The Gutter.
Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.
