    Hey..I was just wondering how long people waited.. Tell us what city and roughly the population density...

    I camped at Walmart with a very dense population (socal) and I waited for 30 hours.

    Was that even a sentence? I mean, do you even read what you type before pressing submit? Or do you just smash your fingers on the keyboard and hope it spells something out?
