    It's not like this was the only day you were ever gonna be able to get one. I hate lines, and I don't do them well.

    Wtf. that's sick.

    One block after another. 'Is this the end of the line?' :)

    But I am rather impressed how all the people were standing in double line, it seemed very well organized.

    I bought a 32GB 3G this afternoon and from the time I got in line until I walked out of Best Buy was 2 hours 10 minutes. :)

    You missed out all the fun of meeting people with a likewise interest.

    The line at Kenwood Mall was insane as well. Went all the way around the rather large mall. I would guess there were 350+ people in the line. If not more. It was hard to tell. I got there at 12:30 and left at 5:30 (with my iPad). Turns out I could have saved time and went to Best Buy, but oh well. The experience I had wasn't all that rough. Good people. I just can't imagine being the 400th person in a line and deciding that you should still wait. I was 40th and was considering leaving.

    Seems to me the apple store staff had their shit in one sock cos it seemed to be well controlled and maintained. Of course we didn't see deterioration as time went by. All in all very crazy. Lol.

    No, but as my grandmother used to say, not everyone that grows up becomes an adult.

    Wow.

    I remember a particular episode of Futurama where Leela and the gang are in an equally insanely long line when it suddenly shifts backward. That's when Farnsworth said "Someone had a baby."
