    Fuck, I get the feeling my parents will help me buy a new computer if I can find some really good Black Friday deals on components.

    The problem is that I know next to nothing about components, so I can't deviate much from the parts listed in the Computer Build thread in the Technology Tavern. If those parts aren't on sale, I don't know how to find equivalent parts (or slightly less good parts) that are on sale.

    Do you have a techy friend you can call while out shopping?

    Not really, and I'm pretty much looking for online deals only, because my parents aren't going to spend one of the days of our family weekend together waiting in line at Fry's or some shit.

    There's always Cyber Monday which is apparently the internet's Black Friday.

    Is that the Monday after Black Friday?

    Okay, change of plans for Sunday. As far as stuff besides Christmas shopping, I'm just going to make some sort of attempt at a social life, because damned if I'm going to find one in town.

    Problem is my social skills got so stunted from middle and high school that I don't have any idea what the fuck I'm even looking for, to the point where even though I know it'd be good for me, you'd basically have to drag me in by the arm because I usually end up not having the guts to go into even the most innocuous places. I've been hurt way too many times for my instincts to allow me to do anything but shake my head, head for the car and go home.

    So I need some arm-dragging. I don't drink, I don't smoke. We've already established I have shit for paychecks. Aside from that, help me find a place to go in Madison.

    Best Buy has some great (Serenity - Collector's Edition was $10, where it is normally $20 - $25) movie deals online for Black Friday.

    Do you like the ultimate culmination of a rabid consumerist culture? Where the largest sales of the year, combined with the most-commercialized holiday of the year, combined with a sense of urgency brought on by sales lasting for only 5-6 hours, form a stampeding mob the likes of which frequently end in fistfights, police and ambulances?

    Then yes, be jealous.

    You're a wise, wise man. Any customer that risks the brick-and-mortar riot you can set your watch to deserves everything they get. (And deserves to remember everything they do. It is not uncommon for adults to rip highly sought-after merchandise out of the hands of children.)

    (And the employees are all too busy cowering behind things to notice or really do anything but ring everyone up so they can get the store empty and try to clean up after people.)
