Cards Against Humanity’s Black Friday Deal Is Literally Nothing, and they’ve made over $38,000 with it. Check out the current status and maybe give them $5 for nothing at all.

Hollywood’s hacker war began on February 19, 2004 with a simple phone call. It happened at a T-Mobile store near Los Angeles.
