11 out of 15, I guess my consumer-radar is in reasonable working order.

Shouldn't have gotten this one wrong, though.

That was too easy, you can tell by the expressions of the faces, people remaining behind railings, etc... 15/15

Has anyone made a website dedicated to videos of black friday fights and savages?

15/15. It's easy to tell the difference. Rioters typically have meaning and purpose in their facial expressions, while Black Friday attendees are acting upon knee-jerk reactions to fill their lives with more TV's and crap because they're on sale.

Yeah I got that one wrong though, I thought it looked like so clearly looting it must be black friday shoppers.

I admit I really wanted the 32" TV from Walmart for $148, and the ad said if they ran out but you were there between 10-11 you would get a voucher. Apparently they ran out of vouchers at 10:30. As I left I saw people in line with 3-6 of these in their carts. I think the retailer has a responsibility at the checkout to only allow one per customer (and not allow a 5 yr old with mom's credit card to be considered a customer) and take the excess away and put them back on the shelf.

I found a 40" seiko or Seiko (or whatever it is) online for $224...1080p, 10ms, blah blah...through tigerdirect. It's bigger than I wanted for the bedroom but I think a better deal. No hassles, no lines, no crowds. It was a great reminder of why I don't go to these things anymore.

Anyone know of a better deal on a 32"?

If there are white women in the photo, it's a Black Friday riot

Oh, and 12/15.

The mess I saw left at Walmart last night clearly could have been mistaken for a riot.

In pic #13...where the hell is that Best Buy at, China Town???? I figured it was some riot in Seoul Korea over something Best Korea did. There's not a single non-asian person in the entire picture.

My dad, a brother and I used to do this with pokemon cards during the craze. Limit 50 booster packs per customer. We'd end up leaving with the whole shelf and selling them on ebay for a considerable profit. Same with some beanie babies back in the day

I think a lot of people might get #13 wrong. All I saw was a bunch of asian faces and figured it was a riot somewhere in asia. I guess they have Best Buys in Taiwan now.

Same here. The rest were actually pretty easy to tell. #2 was the only other toss-up, but I got that one right.

Yeah, if the cops are wearing dayglo and checkerboard, or it says "POLITI" on their uniforms, it's not America, and they probably don't have big sales after America's holiday.

Showing police officers in uniforms worn only in other countries, such as the british day-glow jackets, or the Danish "Politie" was a dead giveaway.

14/15.

I grabbed two voltage inverters at Pep Boys for $10 each, they normally run around $53.

Crowds not too bad, I can easily wait an extra 15 minutes in line for $80.

I hope you saved $80, rather than spent $20 on 2 voltage inverters you're now thinking "how can I use these?"

The answer on number 2 is the reflection of the people. I also missed #13, meaning 14/15. I've seen Asians riot, and it gets pretty nasty.

If I had known I could get one at 10 bucks, I would have gotten one. I wouldn't have gotten 2, as I only have a use for one.

I think this is the best photo... Look at the look of dejection on the kid's face on the right... As well as the man behind him...

Oh, I hadn't even noticed the text on that one. Simply looked like riot police containment to me.

The one that was obvious to me based on text without looking more deeply at the picture was 14: sign says, "One way", American road signage tends to be all caps, right?

14/15.

/Got fooled by the picture where everyone is asian.


Huh. Didn't even notice faces in that one. Just outstretched hands, like #6 and, to a lesser extent, #9.

I got #2 wrong, but I'm struggling to work that picture out. It's all reflections overlaid on each other.

The last one contains Reverend Billy, so I was torn.

We don't have many Asians in Detroit.
We don't have many riots either, but I see a lot of them when I watch news about the college-town suburbs, or of California.
However, around here, you do learn to recognize the look on the face of somebody up to no good as opposed to the look of a person in a rush to get something done.
