As an australian I don't get the whole black friday thing, why do yous need to bombard the stores at midnight to get things slightly cheaper. I have seen news reports of fights, beatings, and even deaths of people being trampled by the rush or murdered. Is it really worth it? This is a case of some americans having horribly ****** up priorities.

To start, it's not slightly cheaper. It's a hell of a lot cheaper (I got something for $34 that was $80 the day before at a local department store, but didn't go during the rush) than any other days in the year. A lot of people go to try and get things for Christmas at ridiculously low prices, and a lot go just for the adrenaline rush (don't personally understand this one, but it seems to be reason for a lot of people to go). Yes, some people get trampled each year, but they're just getting picked off by natural selection if they're willing to risk getting mixed up in a literal stampede of crazed shoppers.   
   
I don't personally see the appeal in trying to get through raging mobs of people to go shopping, but to each their own I suppose. And don't be so quick to 			****		 on Americans for this, I'm sure that if Australia had sweeping Black Friday sales you would have the same thing happening over there.

I said SOME americans have ****** up priorities, I didn't generalize and **** on all of america. When I see images or videos of black friday rushes it literally looks like sheep being herded into a pen. It's a horrible idea and not worth the lives (really sad I have to say that) that it costs. All over buying some material goods at cheaper prices, good god

I usually slip in after the big groups. I went into Best Buy, picked up Assassin's Creed Revelations and Assassin's Creed III (saved $48 buying those two, by the way), a Kindle Fire, and an iPad case, and it took me less than 30 minutes.

It also makes sense if you look at the financial crisis we are faced with. I mean, sure, it's not as bad as Africa or Egypt...but it's still a pretty ******* big deal.

Africans don't fight hunger, they have richer, usually white countries to try and do that for them... There, I said it.

They have grown too dependent on international aid, imo we shouldn't send food and clothes to them but repro material, machines, and give them free know how so that hey can stand on their own feet

I'm sorry to sound like a bitch, but why is it everytime we have a post on FP that has anything to do with a government, politics or just countries in general, it always gets redirected into something along the lines of "hurr durr amurrica is stupid n fat"?   
   
  I already knew what the post was going to be about even before I finished scrolling down. Yes, it's funny to laugh at America's faults, and I find them funny at times too. But do they need to have the same joke in every single one? The way it's presented is that America is complete 			****		 and everywhere else is a godsend. You went as far to compare Hunger in Africa to Greed in America on a day you can get everything that would've been overpriced for a really low sum of cash.   
   
   
Tl;dr-If you could get something you wanted for cheap, you'd do it too. America isn't this demon that only cares about themselves, and even if that's not what this post says that's what it's implying, that America is full of selfish people.

I hate majority of the people in my country. The fact that people would rather stand in line to buy **** for cheap instead of spend time with their family is pathetic. I don't want to live here anymore.

And that right there just earned you my respect. There's a reason I hate those who say they're moving to Canada or who support secession. Only cowards run from hard times.

I wouldn't say we Europeans are free of guilt in regarding the fights.

From what I've read from several news sources people from around the Mediterranean ain't the perfect people from god at all.
I've noticed this on several holidays as well, Greek taxi drivers driving without the till on, buss drivers doing the same, Greek people claiming their dead parents pension and so forth. (No direct hate for Greece here, I've witnessed the taxi and bus stuff in Spain, Italy and Turkey as well)

So from what I've seen and read the people down there cheat on their taxes, work illegally, claim cash for dead people and then they have the nerve to complain when their government struggles to pay it's bills?
God danged guys? Did you all just give up hope after the Roman empire collapsed?

Because that will totally solve the problems that are practically non-existent. Face it bud, the U.S. has got it easy compared to much of the world.
