Black Friday, this ode to consumption! A black Friday ... pollution?




by Christophe » 24/11/17, 13:35

Pfff I'm sorry ... for a week we basine (even in the JT super level merdiatic!) with this "black friday" ... day of "supposedly" exceptional business ...

My ass! It's a disguised pay day that will force you to (still) equip yourself with consumer goods that you do not necessarily need ... be happy, consume!

Its origin dates from the 60 years and is related to Thanksgiving https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thanksgiv ... 9tats-Unis), an unknown custom outside the USA (except except via American culture ...)

So logically no reason to practice in France ...
https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Friday_(shopping)

In short again an "invention" landed from across the Atlantic to boost consumption (should I say consumption ???) and a little GDP ... while waiting for our traditional holidays tend to fall into oblivion, Halloween of $ has already erased religious All Saints for a few years now ...

It would be enough to make a welding polls among blond heads ... What's Halloween, what's Halloween?

Well it is true that Halloween is still funnier than the Christian version of All Saints' Day where everyone gets their mouths thinking about the dead ... : Cheesy:

Here it was my mouth rant Friday (everything is allowed already lol) ...

Positive point: the black friday is aptly named: it's a black Friday ... pollution ...

In this consumer society, everything is good to push for even more consumption.

In my area, "Black Friday" took place from November 20 to 24, 2017, so tell you that it's not just Friday that was black ... pollution ...

Obviously it smells of buzz, so the free ad, but the action is honorable anyway ...

Well agree with you, I find this black day completely idiotic.

On the other hand, welding is only for blond heads, or is it open to all?

Good weekend to all.
