Hello! Welcome to our Black Friday open thread, where you can bump, push, elbow, claw, and maim your way to the front of the line to score a discount on a flat screen bigger than your field of vision. If you've ever participated in the madness, tell us about your successes and regrets. Or share any tips you've learned on how to score deals with the least amount of hassle and frustration.

As always, the open thread is brought to you by Hackerspace, the Gawker blog run mainly by Lifehacker readers and one Canadian. If you're interested in writing for us but are relatively new to the community, write a post on your Kinja blog and we'll share it to Hackerspace. If we already know you well, all you have to do is ask for your posting privileges.
