Black Friday strikes again! Here's further incentive to never leave your house again: Already today, two people have been killed. Yes, killed while trying to get deals on televisions.

Let's see, so far, there's all of this:

In front of a Macy's in Hamilton Mall in South Jersey, a man was shot dead and his brother was wounded in a shooting. The 20-year-old man was shot multiple times and pronounced dead at the scene while his 26-year-old brother was shot in the leg and listed in stable condition at a nearby hospital.

And then in Reno, Nevada on Thursday night, a man was shot dead in a road rage incident in a Walmart parking. KOLO reported that "there was apparently a dispute over a parking spot" between two men with weapons, and a 33-year-old man was shot dead at the scene.

And that's not all, a man was shot in a Memphis mall on Thursday, and there's just all manner of chaos around the country.

According to The Daily Mail, all of this insanity is in service of spending a lot of money for a bunch of stuff nobody needs - online sales are expected to hit $3 billion for the first time ever, and online shopping might hit the equally record-breaking $1 billion. Damn, America.
