    People buying stuff they don't want just cause it's on sale.

    The fact they mentioned the shooting within the black friday story is terrible. It was like a foot note. They should have at least separated the two stories.

    This was the first black friday in 10 years that I did not work retail. I didn't even attempt to leave the house as I am right next to a mall and traffic on the roads and mass transit was packed. I never got into black friday before I worked retail and I certainly don't want anything to do with it after.

    Hope the radio stations in my area don't pull it now, because it's one of my favorites.

    @D'Snowth just another good example of double standard logic. :rolleyes:

    Why is Seth MacFarlane doing Christmas songs?

    Well, at least he has a great singing voice.

    Though I would have preferred it if he sang the songs like this. :D

    I'll agree, he does actually have a surprisingly great singing voice. Still feels awkward though, lol.

    And is it just me, or does there seem to be a little too much Pentatonix Christmas music this year?

    I don't understand how being inclusive means excluding Christmas. It's basically a secular holiday now. Wouldn't a better answer to this issue be to include all winter holidays instead?

    To be honest, elementary school staff just have no clue what the **** they're even doing anymore half the time, so it's not even a surprise anymore.

    I'm sorry, but what exactly was this principal trying to accomplish? Just because she came from a place that was against Christmas doesn't mean that she had to use her position of authority to force her ridiculous ideals upon an entire school population and staff. If I were working at this school, I would immediately have contacted the school district's board or union to make sure that the principal reversed her decision. :mad: :mad: :( :(

    I wonder if she'll be principal much longer if shes going to start doing stuff like this

    Hoping to get a new pair of headphones this year to replace my current ones which constantly make popping/crackling sounds.

    Was going to get a new iPhone, but might be getting that for my birthday next year instead.

    It's good to hear everyone else has earbud issues as well; I roll with iFrogz Ear Pollution (or whatever they're called). They're only about 10 bucks and have really nice bass/quality.

    This is just terrible. A local heating and air company is running an advertisement this month: if we receive two or more inches of snow on Christmas day, they'll pay their customers' heating bills this winter.

    That's a horrible promise! For one thing, it never snows on Christmas Day here . . . it rarely snows in December here! That's basically a false promise, building up people's hopes and dreams, and then dashing them on the sharp rocks at the bottom! It'd be like if somewhere in Arizona, they promise to pay customers' cooling bills for the summer if they receive two or more inches of rain in August.

    I frickin' hate Pentatonix. There, I said it.
