Black Friday sells are notorious for riots. So are Macy’s shoe sales. But this weekend the improvised riot was at San Diego Comicon as…Bleedingcool.com reports on a major riot over Star Wars exclusive figures at the SDCC.
With artificial scarcity comes chaos. We see this in primitive societies where the lack of desired items causes humans to lose their minds (liek Greece, Venezuela, etc.). Other cons have droves of people acting like stampeding buffalo when the doors open in the vendor area of a con, but I have never seen anything like the aforescribed battle royal. It is just another reason that we at Icygeek can be glad that SDCC is on the other side of the continent from us so we are unlikely to ever attend.
That said, the action sounds better than anything recently seen in WWE.
