Yahoo news: The entire population of the United States went shopping on Black Friday
Per Yahoo! News, 247 million people shopped in person or online on Black Friday. Given that this number is slightly higher than the number of adults in the US (approximately 238 million, estimated from 2010 census), there was reason for doubt; therefore, they consulted a second study, which found that the number was in fact over 307 million, this time not including online shopping. That leaves just over 4 million of us who stayed home. Either illegal immigration is far more widespread than anyone realized, or math is just really hard for some people.
