Um, people are already camping out for Black Friday

Listen, I get that saving $30 on a digital camera that will be technologically obsolete in a year or two really gets some people going, but this is ridiculous. A guy in Ohio marked his territory outside a Best Buy so that he could be the first person in line for their Black Friday sale.

Listen, I get that saving $30 on a digital camera that will be technologically obsolete in a year or two really gets some people going, but this is ridiculous. A guy in Ohio marked his territory outside a Best Buy so that he could be the first  person in line for their Black Friday sale.

Jonas Allooh is the first in line, putting up his tent at 5 p.m. on Monday.

He said this is the third year for him, although he has a friend who has been staking claim to a place in line for the past seven years.

Inside their tent are all of the comforts of home: a bed, a microwave, a television and most importantly heaters.

“It’s cold; it’s windy, and sometimes it rains and snows, so you have to be careful and make sure you stay warm.” said Allooh.

They have Thanksgiving dinner brought down to the tent, which sounds like a lot more work than it's worth. Hope that discounted tablet is worth it, man. [Fox 8, h/t TIME]
