My exact thoughts, why do people enjoy being labeled as "consumers" so much? We only exist as profit-making slaves for the higher classes, it's kinda disgusting.


yep thats how it's always been since mankind has existed and thats it's always going to be


Not really, there was a time where man could provide himself and his family the means to survive. There was a time where man was self-sufficient. Now that's pretty much over, we get fed with processed bullshit and get distracted by stuff we really don't need to survive. These distractions cause a lot of people to go into debt and end up on the street. So really, if you have a nice tv, you really don't need a new 55'' inch tv, or if you have a nice small functioning car with economic value, you don't need to buy a new one.

But advertisements and media today blind this generations making them feel as if they MUST have or totally need the bullshit these companies sell. It's pretty effective you know.

Cyber Monday is what I am all about, but many online stores do Black Friday things as well. I'm definitely going to be looking. I don't have anything in mind that I need though.

Since gamestop is sold out on XBox one until Black Friday I thought of maybe going up there to wait for them to open to buy one... but I hate "camping" for anything on Black Friday so I may just pass for a few more weeks until I can get one.

The way stores advertise you'd think Black Friday started the week before Halloween. I will be going to the mall on black Friday just because my yankee candle coupon expires on the 1st.

I pouring tacks out of boxes while someone drives me around the streets surrounding my local Wal-Mart and Best Buy. Why do they get to be the only idiots?

Of course! I've been going the last 4 years and all I ever buy are towels! For some reason, towels are like socks in my household. They just suddenly disappear, but I think a black hole is to blame...

And I don't understand why people are always pushing the "you should stay home with your family on Thanksgiving" or why the employees are complaining? Firstly, if the people want to go out let them. It's not your life, it's theirs. Secondly, if the employees don't want to work they shouldn't and if they get fired then they get fired.

Since I could remember, both my parents work on Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years...any holiday you can think of. They work around late afternoon all the way until the next day. You would never hear them complaining, ever. So when I hear black friday employees complain about not being with family, well look at my parents. We just have to work around it. Usually my sister and I would celebrate with them during the couple of hours they are with us in the morning of that particular holiday before they leave us for work. Once I finish school and apply for my job next year (and if I get it), I definitely without any complaints will work holidays as well. No offense, but I think black friday employees need to stfu. I mean if they don't want to work, I'm sure someone would be willing to.

Only thing I plan on buying is (hopefully) a Black Friday sale of an All-Access membership (for a year) here on CR! I won't even have to leave my home for that! XD

There was one year that I worked at WalMart and had to be there Thanksgiving Day for Black Friday... no way am I going to be responsible for making someone else have to work at a retail store on a holiday. Stores keep opening earlier every year because we keep buying their crap without concern for the employees. Stay at home with your families, stuff your face with turkey, and go to bed people. The sales are hardly ever worthwhile and usually they can be found throughout the holidays and online anyways.


Sure but for the people that live alone and have no friends or family around during the holidays.......might as well go shopping.

No, that's false. If that was the case, then why do I still see kids upgrading their phones with the newer ones that come out each year? Why do I see kids buying expensive as shit smartphones when they could buy 4x cheaper ones and have nearly the same satisfaction due to its utilities? This also goes for adults as well. This generation became a swine of ignorant brainwashed morons who exist only to consume, pay taxes, and die. That's all you need to do.

Strahfobiya took the words right out of my mind concerning consumerism and how it creates slavery and slave labor beyond belief, you'd be surprised to know that in this century, slavery and child labor has never been as strong in Human history as it is right now. You'd be surprised how many Chinese kids it took to build that smartphone of yours or new TV. Same for most of the expensive electronics you really don't need, or other expensive stuff. Ever since the 20th century, the Human middle-class has become absolute shit and money makers for the assholes above.

But it doesn't matter, you're probably enjoying that Samsung Galaxy S3 or that iPhone 5s, right? The only thing you need to know in life right now is,
Be productive, consume, pay taxes, and die. That's the prison that we call "Freedom and liberty" in 1st world countries.

Will there be a CrunchyRoll Black Friday Membership sale like last year?


I hope there will be, I want to buy my younger cousin a membership since her parents don't want to spend their money on that ,and she really loves anime


Same here. I got a family member that would love a membership.

I was thinking of getting some bluetooth headphones but I'll get those earlier in the week. Don't feel like risking my life to stand in line.
