Survey says... ONE in THREE things people bought last Black Friday are ALREADY broken... no

If you're going to risk your life on Black Friday, you'd like to think it's for something that won't break before the NEXT Black Friday. But apparently that happens a lot.

A new study found almost one of three things people bought on last Black Friday are already broken, lost, or stolen. Here are four more new Black Friday stats for you....

1. Even though fitness trackers like Fitbit seem cool, no one wants them... 59% of people say it's the give they want the LEAST.

2. Women are more than twice as likely to max out a credit card doing their Black Friday shopping. 9% of women have done it, versus 4% of men.

3. Three out of four people have made an impulse purchase... and almost half immediately regretted it.

4. Men are three times as likely as women to buy something online on Friday when they're DRUNK.

Are you surprised?

Alright.. so this is a pretty judgmental study to whip out one week before Thanksgiving. The real estate blog Estately ranked all 50 states by how MISERABLE it is to spend Thanksgiving there....

They used six criteria: The likeliness of food poisoning, based on salmonella cases.. the likeliness of relatives getting drunk and making a scene (who doesn't enjoy a good family fight) based on binge drinking rates.. the likeliness of your favorite NFL team losing on Thanksgiving... The likelieness of getting into political arguments, based on how even the split between Republicans and democrats is... dietary restrictions based on rates of diabetes and vegetarians.. and the likeliness of people leaving to shop, based on Facebook data. (Clearly this study was pretty indepth)

And the most miserable place to spend Thanksgiving is.... OHIO! The rest of the top 10 are: Iowa.. (shocking).. Pennsylvania.. Arizona.. Wisconsin (don-cha-knowwww) Nebraska.. Alaksa.. Maine.. Virginia and.....DRUM ROLL PLEASE..... MISSOURI!!!!!!

The BEST place to spend thanksgiving is HAWAII (SHOCKER) The rest of the top ten LEAST miserable places are: New Mexico.. Arkansas.. Utah.. New Jersey.. Oklahoma.. Connecticut.. Idaho.. Wyoming and Nevada!

4.) You may remember hearing about Tracy Morgan's car accident last June, well now his lawyers are saying he suffered a serious brain injury from the crash.

3.) Once again People Magizene looked over my submission for the sexiest man alive and went with one of those Hollywood people. Chris Hemsworth was named the Sexiest Man Alive...good thing people say we look alike.

2.) After years of criticism that Barbie is putting an unrealistic image of women in little girls minds they have finally released the 'Normal Barbie'. But making her body shape that of an average woman's wasn't enough. 'Normal Barbie' comes complete with cellulite, acne, and stretch mark stickers. Could this be the next step in Barbie saying you can either be skinny and perfect or average sized and covered in zits and stretch marks?
