"We always hang in a buffalo stance..."
Among the highlights of this fire sale turned embarrassment that left 17 people injured:
"This is total, total chaos," said Latoya Jones, 19, who lost one of her flip-flops in the ordeal and later limped around on the sizzling blacktop with one foot bare.
"They bum rushed the gates and I was knocked over, fighting for my life," said an exasperated Alice Jemerson, an elderly lady. "All these people were on top of me."
Blandine Alexander, 33, said one woman standing in front of her was so desperate to retain her place in line that she urinated on herself.
Jesse Sandler said he was one of the people pushing forward, using a folding chair he had brought with him to beat back people who tried to cut in front of him.
4-year old Apple laptop = $50
Going rate scalpers offered the lucky ones that managed a purchase = $200
Making an ass of yourself in the name of landing a bargain = priceless.

Found you by way of Will...
But that's a damn shame. Urinating on yourself to get a 4 year old laptop??? *sigh* Clearly another reason we can't rise as a people. *walking off shaking head*
