Pardoning turkeys?
What's next, Scooter Libby?
I present the following facts:

That wonderful day where we first tricked the Indians into accepting us into their homes.
We ate turkey, laughed, cried, stole their women and gave them diseases.

So, as you can see from my rhetoric, what are you guys doing for this feast of feasting days?

    I'll be at Girl's place for Thanksgiving. I'll be doing away with diet restrictions and eating Turkey as well, because it is Turkey Day. Sadly I have duty this week so I can only show up for the evening then have to drive back that night. But I still expect plentiful gorging and maybe even a quick nap before I leave.

    This sounds delightful.

    Thanksgiving is going to be great fun this year. We're spending it with my in-laws. Whom I actually get along with fairly well. At least, well enough to enjoy all that damn good cooking.

    Last year was better though. We stayed at home, hundreds of miles away from family. Just us, shut in for the day, cooking.

    I'll be driving for a combined six hours and stopping at two places to eat with my girlfriend. Better than what I usually do, which is nothing.

    I distinctly remember as a kid when we was po', we were painting our living room one Thanksgiving. Dinner consisted of hot dogs and one (1) can of cranberry sauce while we watched Empire Strikes Back on TBS. I have no idea why I remember the station, I just do.

    Thanksgiving is a fake holiday that celebrates fucking over Indians and is nothing more than a shameless baccanal of gluttony and materialistic consumerism.

    I'll be spending it with my boyfriend. We're going to his adviser's place for dinner.

    Then I'm going shopping.

    My in-laws are coming to stay with my wife and I in our small condo that isn't big enough for 4 adults. And they're bringing their tiny neurotic dog, who hates our big semi-neurotic dog. It'll be great.

    It is the best Holiday because this year, it is also my birthday. And the Packers play the Lions.

    I am given, on average, 2 pumpkin pies to take home as gifts every Thanksgiving. What does that do to the calcuation?

    My parents are living in Arizona and won't be coming out for Thanksgiving.

    My mother's family will be going to a restaurant. They have no vegetarian meals for thanksgiving, but they have offered to make pasta primavera for my brother and I.

    So I'll be eating pasta primavera at a restaurant on Thanksgiving.

    Anything in particular? The list of game sales is pretty huge, even if some of them aren't sales ($250 Wii).

    Off the top of my head.
    - Mario Galaxy is $35 at Circuit City.
    - KB Toys is doing Buy One, Get One off their entire game stock.
    - Kmart has HL2 Orange Box for 360 for $40.

    I'd guess it's so that other stores can't react to their sales by cutting prices more, but it could just be that they want to control their information.

    I participated in Black Friday one year and one year only. Staples had free RAM. $15 sticks with a $15 mail in rebate. Literally free RAM. I went at 5am. I stood in line. I made my way to the free RAM upon the doors opening. Only to find that all the free RAM was already gone, somehow.

    Then I went home and decided that Black Friday is the single day embodiment of everything wrong in this world.

    I think it's the control thing. The stores usually sue under the DMCA, because it allows them to target a website's service provider.
    Despite the fact that facts cannot be copyrighted, most sites don't have the pockets to go against Best Buy in court. This year Wal-Mart upped the ante by claiming their BF sale prices amounted to "commercially valuable" trade secrets.

    Truthfully, they want you to have to go to their website, or even better their B&M store, to find out what they have on sale.
