    I heart a-holes.

    So, a few years ago, my friend is all like "My son needs this toy, and it will be at the toystore in the mall on Black Friday, want to come with?" I said okay, not knowing what Black Friday was and that we would be getting there at 4:30 AM. I also didn't know there would be a crowd of like a hundred people there, too, all to cram into that little store. As soon as they opened it up, people started acting like it was Any Given Sunday, shoving people and generally acting like animals. This one guy next to me started throwing out elbows like he was a pro-wrestler or something, nailing this woman in the eye.

    I had just had a really good lesson in Tai Chi about how to stay attached to the ground, and I had plenty of experience in the mosh pit, and this dude needed a lesson in civility and comportment. I set my feet down, widened my stance and used both hands to blast this guy right into a stand full of Star Wars figures. It must have been a collapsible stand, because it collapsed, and dude just laid there.

    Sometimes, being the arbiter of bad karma, and an a-hole, feels really good.

    We got the toy, too. Darth Vader with removable mask. Awesome.

    the store employees who stacked those star wars figures must be annoyed
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I thought this was going to be a very different and much dirtier post. I'm a little disappointed.

    Apparently I make great friends with a-holes.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    It was people like him that helped beat down the doors to and killed an employee of a Wal-Mart during a "Black Friday" sale this year, and almost trampled a pregnant woman to death.

    True bravery consists of ganking one in the back of the head w/ a brick.
